Vending machine manufacturers are always coming up with clever ways to market their products, and we’ve certainly just seen one of the most unique marketing campaigns yet. Everyone loves coffee vending machines as it is, but could you imagine one that knows when you’re tired and need some java most? According to Eater, Coffee brand Douwe Egberts decided to try the concept out, and put the results up for public viewing on YouTube.

In order to attract sleepy coffee addicts, Douwe Egberts planted a special vending machine in a Johannesburg airport that dispensed free coffee upon “seeing” a customer yawn. This was done via facial recognition technology, and the customers in the YouTube video are pleasantly surprised when their sleep-deprived state earns them a complimentary cup of Java. This isn’t the first example of facial recognition technology being used in vending units, as manufacturers are experimenting with the concept to deliver more personalized customer service. We’re not sure if yawn-detectors will become a staple of the vending industry, but they’re certainly an innovative move from a marketing standpoint.

Whether you want to be on the front lines of the vending industry or would prefer to sell the classics to your customers, visit eVending today and learn how to become a part of this exciting business!

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.

Not that long ago, biometric technology was only seen in sci-fi or spy movies. Technology that allows us to scan a fingerprint or eyes, detect specific faces through cameras or access and use computers with our hands and eyes.

Now, biometric technology, or the identification of humans by their characteristics or trains by technology, is becoming so commonplace that it is even incorporated into our cell phones. Finger print scanners are one of the most popular forms of biometric technology and are used mainly for authenticating access to devices or programs and as a replacement for passwords.

While the debate of whether biometrics are a secure replacement for traditional passwords or security measures is on-going, there is a wide range of uses for biometrics that we can use every day to make our lives easier and our daily tasks more efficient.

Combo drink snack machines can even benefit from these exciting new technologies. Just a few months ago, eVending posted about a coffee manufacturer promoted their products with a vending machine that used facial recognition to detect when someone in front of the machine yawned.  Things like voice recognition or facial recognition could provide personal greetings, payment options or selection recommendations for patrons.

As an owner of such a business, you likely want to know what new useful advancements have been made in the vending industry. Read below to learn about the best new technology available today for vending machines:

Credit card reader:
In today’s society, many people do not carry cash. Therefore, it is important for vending machines to be equipped to use debit and credit cards. Thankfully, this technology is now available in the form of credit card readers. In addition to giving your machine credit card reading capabilities, this innovative technology also gives you the ability to monitor your vending machine transactions from a remote location thus allowing you to keep up with your profit.

Changing the machines themselves:
There have been many changes in the vending machine industry in regards to the appearance and functionality of the machines themselves. This new technology has allowed a huge increase in the amount of items that can be sold in a vending machine. In the past, chips and sodas were the primary fare of vending machines. Today, coffee, water, healthy snacks, salads, sandwiches, pie and even pizza are being sold out of vending machines. However, small snacks such as chips and peanuts and sodas are still the primary and most popular contents.

Vending machine technology has continued to evolve over the years. As a vending machine manufacturer, eVending knows you likely want to keep on top of useful vending machine technology.

snack machinesA popular business mantra, location, location, location, also assists vending machine owners in making a profit. Finding the right spots takes a bit of research, but the investment yields big rewards as vending machine owners take advantage of great locations.

  • Look for Foot Traffic: A vending machine combo located near a bustling train station or in a major hospital receives more business than one that sits in a secluded spot away from foot traffic. Savvy business owners research locations and collect data before strategically placing their combo and snack machines along busy routes.
  • Stock Waiting Areas: Bored people eat, which makes waiting rooms an ideal location for compact mini vending machines. These small machines take up little room, yet they potentially bring in steady income for vending business owners. Suggested waiting areas include medical offices, municipal buildings, shopping centers, colleges, churches and post offices.
  • Offer a Unique Selection: An area with plenty of foot traffic or near a waiting area may already have a vending machine, but those locations could be prime real estate if they offer minimal or unattractive choices. Placing combo drink snack machines in these areas provides customers with a unique selection and increases the chances of financial success.

In the vending machine business, location must be a priority. In the right spot, quality, reliable and affordable vending machines from eVending have a great chance of being profitable.
