eVendingDo not adjust your monitor. You read that headline correctly. While modern day vending machines have typically been evolving to serve more and more everyday goods, Beverly Hills Caviar believes that those with expensive, exquisite tastes should have a means to satisfy their cravings all throughout the day. The first ever caviar vending machines have been placed in various malls in the Los Angeles area, finally allowing the appetizer of the wealthy to be purchased from a snack vending machine.

According to the LA Times,  these unique gourmet vending machines dispense fish eggs, truffles, escargot, oils, salts, and more. The machines also provide special utensils meant to preserve caviar’s unique taste. For those with a sudden late-night craving for expensive food, the caviar machine at the Burbank Town Center stays open until 2 AM. Given the usual high price of caviar, these machines are not likely to draw in the average mall-goer. Still, like the other modern vending machines we have covered, these caviar dispensers are a true testament to the industry’s ability to grow and reach all types of customers.

While you may not be serving caviar to your customer base any time soon, it is still a great time to become a part of the vending machine business. Whether you want a modern combo drink and snack machine or a simplified table top vending machine, the products available here at eVending make it easier than ever to earn some extra profit!

eVendingWhen you hear the term “reverse vending machine,” you might imagine a traditional snack machine turned upside down, or perhaps a bag of chips walking up to a machine to purchase humans. Well, reverse vending machines do exist, but they are not as out there as they might sound.

Through a unique partnership, Dubai’s Tecom Business Parks just launched the ReVa reverse vending machine. A collaboration between Enpark, Averda, and Air Miles, the machine allows customers to exchange plastic bottles and aluminum cans for Air Miles points, which yeild users a variety of shopping rewards. Customers receive two Air Miles per unit recycled at any of the 15 ReVa machines in the Tecom parks.

“By making recycling more accessible, the ReVa reverse vending machine is also working to change the habits of those working in and living near Tecom free zones,” said Enpark director Saad Bin Ghubash in a recent Trade Arabia article. Not only does the ReVa offer excellent rewards to users, but it encourages a habit of recycling that benefits the entire world in the end.

The ReVa machine is just one of the many examples of how much the vending industry has achieved. Are you looking for an affordable way to become a part of this exciting business? Our vending machines for sale are a great way to get started!

eVendingIf you are as enthusiastic about the vending industry as we are here at eVending, you have likely read up on dozens of new vending innovations ranging from caviar combo vending machines to novelty devices that dish out used books. Well, much like the industry itself, the creativity of the vending world is far from its limit, as a recent 83 Degrees article reveals that new machines in Tampa, Florida will be selling good old fashioned art to its customers.

Modern vending machines have essentially condensed the convenience of a full-on retail store into a small device, so it is only natural that an art retailer can now enjoy the same transformation. After winning Awesome Tampa Bay’s microgrants program, Daniel Markovich is now transforming outdated sticker vending machines into mini stores for all types of visual art. Set to include prints, sticker art, and photographs, these innovative machines will allow Tampa artists to reach their audience in an all-new way.

“With so many talented people very often overlooked, I sought out to find a way to help distribute their work that is fun, affordable and engaging,” said Markovich.

We love hearing about new creations such as Markovich’s brainchild, and we look forward to seeing how this unique art dispenser pans out. If you are inspired by his vision and want to become part of the vending industry at a basic snack and drink level, browse our selection of vending machines for sale today!

eVendingHere at the eVending blog, we spend each week discussing new and exciting news stories in the vending industry, from new machines to advanced technology. However, it is not very often that a vending machine is at the center of a popular TV show like it was this week.

According to the Vending Times, hit NBC comedy “Parenthood” kicked off its fourth season focusing on a young boy’s grief in the wake of snack vending machines being removed from his school’s campus. The boy’s mother then sets out to find a way to get the machines back in the school. The episode’s conclusion was a timely and realistic one: The school eventually brings the vending machines back into their facilities, albeit with much healthier snacking options.

“We applaud the creators and writers of Parenthood and NBC-TV for featuring a real-life view of vending,” NAMA VP Roni Moore told the Vending Times.

We find it very inspiring to not only have our industry at the forefront of a television episode, but also to see the growing trend toward healthy vending find its way into the mainstream. If you are looking to provide this same level of calorie-conscious vending at your establishment, our vending machines for sale are the perfect way to start!

eVendingThe world of vending machines has found itself all over mainstream media lately. No matter where you are, you have likely seen vending machines on television, in the movies, and, in video games? That’s right–Vending’s latest leap into everyday media comes in the form of a fun little mobile game starring a vending machine and its snacks.

According to Vending Times, “Vend Drama” is an all-new app for Apple devices that challenges players to help certain snacks “escape” a vending machine, without stopping up the machine in the process. This is a fun poke at the all-too-familiar scenario of snacks getting stuck in your favorite combo vending machine and actually makes for an interesting take on the puzzle game genre. Players must tilt their smartphone or tablet to successfully guide the snacks out of the machine, as moving too fast or too slow will result in treats getting left behind.

“Gamers will truly enjoy playing Vend Drama. In fact, they may never look at a vending machine the same way again!” said developer Con Roditis on the game, which can be downloaded for free on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. “Vend Drama” certainly looks like a ton of fun, and could very well change the way you approach your local combo drink and snack machine!

eVendingWhether you have been following the official eVending blog or have simply been keeping up with the vending machine business, you likely know by now that the transition towards healthy vending isn’t going away anytime soon. From bans to regulations, different states are handling the issue in their own unique way. Like previous developments in Chicago, new legislation in the state of Oregon could potential remove high-calorie treats from all combo vending machines in the area.

According to OregonLive.com, the proposed House Bill 3403 would demand that vending machines only stock milk, juice, and beverages under 40 calories, which would all but eliminate sodas and high-calorie juices. The same rule goes for snacks, which would lead to common potato chips and candies being banned from machines. This vending machine legislation is only a footnote to a much larger issue happening in Oregon regarding gun control.

Do you think banning fatty snacks in vending machines is the issue, or should it be the responsibility of the everyday person to make wise snacking decisions? While people are obviously responsible for what they eat, healthy vending options allows consumers to eat well even when they need something quick on-the-go. Whatever change does occur, it is clear that healthy vending is here to stay.
