Uncategorized June 4, 2021

Modern vending machines are a far cry from the ones used 30 or more years ago. The vending machine business has changed considerably over recent years. Today’s machines deliver a wide variety of foods, not just drinks and snacks. Because these machines are high-tech, they are energy-efficient and integrate with specialized business software to manage your business.

Here’s a look inside a Healthy YOU Vending machine to understand how it works and how it benefits customers.

Payment Technology

The main aspect of any vending machine is the payment. Most vending machines still accept coins, which are counted by a series of electromagnets to determine how much was deposited. The same  machines will also accept paper bills (usually), which are validated by optical scanners that take pictures of the bills. Now, to keep up with consumer behavior and preferences, modern Healthy YOU Vending machines also accept credit/debit cards and even offer SmartPhone payment technology.

Ease of Use & Dependability

Modern vending machines have been designed to provide ease of purchasing with few, if any, related problems when selecting, paying, or dispensing food, beverages and products. Once the vending machine determines that the consumer has paid the correct amount of money, the product drops to the bottom of the machine. When the product breaks the path of the laser beams and electronic light sensor at the bottom of the machine, this informs the machine that there was a successful transaction.

Expanded Product Offering

Although vending machines are usually associated with snacks and soft drinks, modern Healthy YOU Vending machines have units for all types of products—from small healthy meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner, to wellness products and even specialty items, such as headphones, dental floss and medications. Healthy YOU Vending also offers a extra capacity add-on side vendor allowing for larger meal and product offerings (our SmartMart), and wellness products (our Wellness Center).
