Nabisco Factory to Luxury Condo

August 19th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union 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!

What if You Could Vend a Sound?

July 15th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on What if You Could Vend a Sound?)

Vending machines are a deeply ingrained part of our history for the better part of the last century, ranging from the world’s first gumball machine to the fully-featured combo vending machines we currently enjoy everyday. And while there are a variety of unique vending devices out there today, a recent report from Gizmodo reveals that companies have been experimenting with the vending machine model for decades.

We buy snacks and sodas from vending machines just about every single day, but what if we could buy sounds? That’s what a few coin-op engineers were wondering when they created a coin-operated radio. It worked very much like a classic vending device; All a user had to do was put their money in and they were able to hear music for a set amount of time with the option to buy more at the end of a five-minute session. And while the concept seems silly in an age where we hear music just by walking around outside, the model can be seen as a precursor to today’s music subscription services such as Spotify and Sony Music.

While it may no longer be necessary to vend music out of a vending machine, this classic find reminds us that innovation has always existed within our exciting industry. If you’re ready to get in on the action, browse the vending machines for sale at eVending.com today!

Drink Spotlight: Dr. Pepper

June 17th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Drink Spotlight: Dr. Pepper)

Vending MachinesOur combo vending machines are the perfect devices for selling today’s hottest drinks and snacks, and we’ve decided to occasionally spotlight some of our favorite refreshments. Today’s choice? If you ever passed by your local vending machine or convenience store, you’ve seen it: It’s Dr. Pepper!

A staple of shops and vending devices everywhere, Dr. Pepper started out over a century ago (you read that right!). The uniquely cherry-tinged drink was invented by Chalres Alderton and has since taken over anywhere that sells cold colas. While many soda brands are constantly pushing their latest variation, the classic Dr. Pepper taste alone has helped the drink remain a household name throughout decades. Packed with a supposed 23 flavors, drink consumers often hit the “Dr. Pepper” button on their local drink vending machine due to the unique taste that only the Doctor can provide.

Looking to provide Dr. Pepper’s classic taste to your base of consumers? Our vending machines for sale are the perfect home for any quantity of Dr. Pepper! Whether you want to include the beverage among a bevy of other drinks and snacks or want to make it a cornerstone of your machine, eVending is sure to have a product for you!

Creative Chefs Come Up with Gourmet Vending Machine

May 20th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Creative Chefs Come Up with Gourmet Vending Machine)

eVendingWhile vending machines have been serving snacks for decades, they have grown to encompass an ever-growing group of famous foods. And while everything from fruits to salads are available in today’s vending products, the industry hasn’t quite yet reached the level of quality that a restaurant provides. However, a Tennessee chef is looking to change all that with a brand-new innovation.

Step onto the Livonia campus of Schoolcraft Community College, and you just might see their brand new gourmet vending machine. While most colleges are littered with standard combo vending machines, this device vends a variety of meals ranging from pasta and chicken to stir fry. According to chef Shawn Loving, this machine is the only one like it in the entire country. . Once students choose their gourmet dish, they simply press a button and their pre-wrapped meal is automatically heated up for them. Free of preservatives, the kryo-vacing process that seals the meals gives them a shelf life of 4-6 months. This unique device started serving up meals in February, with new ones on the way.

The folks at eVending are certainly impressed with this vending innovation, and we look forward to seeing more like it pop up. Of course, if you are looking to go down the more traditional route, our vending machines for sale will make a perfect fit for any establishment!

New Laws Cracking Down on Tobacco Vending Machines

May 6th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on New Laws Cracking Down on Tobacco Vending Machines)

eVendingWhile the vending machine business continues to expand to sell everything from hot meals to expensive electronics, there is one product the industry is trying to phase out. While cigarette vending machines are almost as old as the business itself, new laws could make the tobacco dispensers obsolete.

According to ThisIsJersey.com, new legislation could potentially ban not only tobacoo vending machines, but also prominent displays of the product within stores. The potential law was voted 43 to two in favor of the tobacco ban. If successful, cigarette vending products will have to be removed from their respective establishments over the next 18 months. Perhaps the biggest part of tobacco marketing is the bevy of cigarette packs behind convenience store counters, so their removal would surely have a huge impact on the industry.

People will likely be split over this potential ban, as the move helps promote an overall healthy country while making cigarettes less acessible for smokers. It will be interesting to see how the legislation pans out, as well as whether or not store owners will replace their cigarette machines with more traditional combo vending machines. Even with the industry evolving every single day, this story proves the importance of making sure today’s machines are vending the right products.

Art Sold Through Old Cigarette Vending Machines

April 22nd, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Art Sold Through Old Cigarette Vending Machines)

eVendingWhile many cigarette vending machines have become banned as of late, North Carolina-based artist Clark Whittington has found an all-new purpose for them. These former tobacco product dispensers have been renamed as “Art-o-Mat” machines, named after their sole purpose: To dispense mini-sized works of art to the public! In a world dominated by traditional drink and snack vending machines, Whittington’s work proves that there is always room for some retro-themed innovation.

This project started gaining steam around 1997, when Whittington installed his first machine in Winston-Salem in 1997. His re-purposed cigarette vending machines dispense black-and-white photos the size of cigarette packs for about a dollar, allowing just about anyone to enjoy the results of this unique vending creation. Whittington has turned over 100 cigarette machines into Art-o-Mat devices since he began the project, and he now has works featured everywhere from the Whitney Museum in NYC and Washington D.C.’s National Portrait Gallery. These vending machines have since expanded to feature everything from wearable art, notepads, small cartoons, and more.

We are constantly surprised and delighted whenever the vending machine business produces unique products like this, and we look forward to seeing the trend continue. Of course, if you are looking to enter the industry at a more base level, our vending machines for sale are a great place to start!

eVendingWhile the food industry continues to grow more and more automated and pre-packaged, the farming industry continues to provide fresh, organic goods. However, even the farm world can benefit from the evolution of technology, and a group of farmers in Croatia have recently embraced vending machines to help further their dairy business.

They decided to begin selling their products directly through a nearby combo vending machine, giving customers automated access to their farm-grown goods. There are only 15 of these unique vending machines in Croatia, as various countries throughout southern Europe are picking up on the trend. Customers save a significant amount of money when buying their milk from these machines, and this new vending machine business model allows farmers to operate with an unprecedented level of independence.

Chicago Issues Healthy Vending Challenge

March 25th, 2013 | Posted by Ajax Union in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Chicago Issues Healthy Vending Challenge)

eVendingIt is no surprise that healthy vending is here to stay, but the city of Chicago is looking to really drive home the point of low-calorie snacks. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently asked the city to participate in a citywide vending challenges in which businesses must alter the contents of their combo vending machines. While the City Council passed a healthy vending policy back in December, the Mayor is looking to take a more direct approach according to RedEye.

The challenge is simple: The businesses that chose to participate must swap out the salty chips and sugary sodas found in their vending machines in favor of nutritious juices and low-calorie munchies. In order to encourage a strict adherence to healthy vending, the city of Chicago is issuing a grading system for their machines: A bronze vending machine will be 50% healthy, a silver one will be 75% healthy, and a gold vending machine will be completely stocked with healthy snack options. Many businesses have already accepted the challenge, collectively creating over 100 healthy combo drink and snack machines for the city.

We are big believers in healthy vending here at eVending, and our vending machines for sale can be easily optimized for the calorie-conscious. No matter where you are, we strongly recommend making the shift to snacks that will keep your community healthy and happy!
