November 29, 2012 // Franchising.com // SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Fresh Healthy Vending, the leading healthy vending machine company in the United States, has revolutionized the coffee industry by launching the first-ever line of gourmet coffee vending machines.
The Fresh Healthy Vending Café machine innovation leads the charge on the latest “automated barista” coffee trend, with companies like Coinstar following suit with similar machines.
“Now more than ever, consumers don’t have the time and money to spend waiting in line at a coffee shop to get their daily cup of coffee before they go to work,” said Dan Negroni, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. “The Café machines are always available, and offer consumers their favorite, high-quality specialty drinks like Lattes or Espressos at a fraction of the cost and time. You don’t have to be late for work anymore because you were stuck in line for coffee.”
New innovations in coffee vending will mean big changes in how coffee drinkers will access their daily fix. Similar to how Redbox machines have revolutionized the movie rental industry, Fresh Healthy Vending is confident their Café machines will do the same for the gourmet coffee industry. With the adaptability and convenience of the Fresh Healthy Vending Café machines, consumers can enjoy their favorite gourmet coffee specialty drinks in a variety of unconventional places, including supermarkets, car dealerships, malls, etc.
While the Fresh Healthy Vending Café machines are the first self-service vending machines to offer fair-trade, specialty coffee drinks and healthy snacks, condensing the retail footprint and providing high quality products with minimal overhead costs like real estate, labor and utilities, there is clear evidence consumers are more than ready to embrace the trend. For example, the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) currently operates similar machines from Seattle’s Best in barracks, training schools and its headquarters’ office building in Virginia Beach. Upon replacing an old ‘traditional’ coffee machine that had been generating less than $50 per month (with the top-selling product being hot chocolate), their new coffee vending machine generated more than $400 in the first 10 days, according to editor Eliot Maras in “Can A Premium Brand Revive Hot Beverage Vending” published in the March 2011 issue of Automatic Merchandiser.
With consumers spending an average of nearly $1,100 a year on specialty coffee drinks, the Fresh Healthy Vending Café machine comes at an opportune time, as consumers can enjoy their favorite French Vanilla Lattes, Cappuccinos or Espressos within seconds and at a fraction of the cost.
“We so strongly believe in providing high quality coffee drinks and healthy snacks that we are willing to provide a free Café machine to anyone who qualifies,” said Negroni.
Fresh Healthy Vending offers a free Café machine to all qualifying schools and employers who would like to upgrade their current coffee options, allowing companies to give their employees gourmet coffee specialty drinks and healthy snacks at the touch of a button.
