Nabisco Factory to Luxury Condo

August 19th, 2013 | Posted by DT in Snack Machines - (Comments Off on Nabisco Factory to Luxury Condo)

There are few things that delight a sense of smell more than freshly baked bread and other baked goods. That might be what the developers of a new condo building in Chicago were thinking when they turned a former Nabisco factory into a set of luxury apartments.

The apartment, at 1000 West Washington Boulevard in Chicago’s West Loop is an impressive feat of remodeling. The original factory was constructed in the early 1900’s and used primarily for production of the company’s Uneeda Biscuit. The Nabisco factory had long been abandoned by the time it was purchased and reconstruction began in 1995.

For enthusiasts of snack machines and the delicious treats they vend, what could be better than living in the very rooms and ovens of a factory that produced such an iconic snack. The one catch is that this deliciously decorated apartment is currently on sale for $499,500. Due to some legal issues, this rent is actually $100k-$150k less than similarly-sized listings in the area.

The condo unit for sale is quite impressive though with 2,000 square feet, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private rooftop deck. Even though eVending is in the business of making fine vending machines, real-estate news about vending snack companies doesn’t come around too often!

Healthy Vending Options in Hospitals

August 12th, 2013 | Posted by DT in Snack vending machines | Vending machine - (Comments Off on Healthy Vending Options in Hospitals)

British hospitals are receiving criticism for their vending machine selections. Snack vending machines in English hospitals offer a fairly standard line-up of snack choices. The criticism is due to the lack of healthy choices and a tendency to offer high-calorie snacks from vending machines in an establishment that is supposed to promote and exemplify health.

A survey performed by the World Cancer Research Fund found that 73% of English health trusts do not have a policy on the food sold in their vending machines. 67% of hospitals that responded stated that they offered at least one healthier option for each product type, but that falls behind Welsh and Scottish policies. In both other nations, their governments have had guidelines in place for hospital vending machines since 2008 that recommend they be stocked with at least 30% healthier choice products.

The main concern comes from high-calorie snacks’ relation with obesity, which is a factor in the hospitalization of many patients that the snacks will be sold to, as well as making sure health providers send a clear message on good nutrition. While common vending machine snacks will still be sold, offering healthier options will give patients, staff and visitors that are often in hospitals for long periods of time options that will be better for their diets.

eVending has found that policies and guidelines similar to those in currently in place in the United Kingdom are taking hold in many US hospitals, giving patients, staff and visitors healthier vending options.

One Big Vending Machine

Snack MachineWhen you think of a vending machine, you would most likely picture a large black or gray machine with a glass from and some buttons, housing shelves of delicious snacks and beverages. Candy bars, small sandwiches, chips and bottles of water or soda have become standard vending-fare for most combo drink snack machines.

What if your vending machine vended items that weighed up to 10 pounds? A community in North Dakota has recently had two Shop 24 machines installed. Hard to miss, these vending machines are the size of small bedroom and vend almost anything you would find in a convenience store.

These giant machines have already been implemented on college campuses and in office buildings, but for residents in North Dakota, these machines offer an alternative to making a long trip to larger stores. The machines vend a variety of items including food, beverages, cleaning and laundry supplies, and DVDs.

While most office buildings, malls, schools and other locations you would expect to find standard snack machines, typically do not have a large demand for laundry detergent or liter-bottles of soda, the convenience of automated stores is very apparent for small communities. While impressive, the size of the machines also pose and issue for buildings looking to install them.
