Millennials Are Driving The Vending Machine Industry

Vending MachineVending machines have been around for decades.

What once was a leading source of snacks and beverages during the work and school day, vending machines now have to compete with food delivery services and food trucks.

With the millennial generation (those coming into adulthood in the year 2000 and after) gaining control in a variety of industries including vending, we are learning how to market and advertise to this diverse group of people.

The millennial generation grew up in an era where technology was taking a dominant stance in how we live our lives. Computers, smartphones, and other modern technologies have been second nature to this group, rather than a life skill for those in the older generations, who took the time to catch up.

So, in terms of vending machines, what can we expect from millennials?

They are attracted to vending machines that offer fresh and affordable foods and beverages with just a quick touch of a button.

There is a decrease in desire for sugary snacks and beverages from a rising awareness of obesity and heart health impacted by unhealthy eating.

Cash carry is virtually non-existent with paying options such as Apple Pay, Google Wallet, credit and debit cards. Smart vending solutions would be to include a machine that allows for a variety of payment types.

Mobile paying options largely depend on the proper placement of vending machine, where wireless access is strongest.

The millennial generation is a great demographic group to test out new vending technologies on as they are not intimated by new technology, but rather encourage it.

As the vending industry works toward making vending machine purchases more mobile savvy, we can expect that any changes will be met with gratitude and increased sales.

Orsino Vending works continuously to provide the latest technology within our vending machines.

Serving a wide variety of industries, you can guarantee that we strive to make the purchase of vending machine items more convenient and the selections healthy and plentiful.

Vending Machines – Healthy Options

Vending Machines – Healthy OptionsEveryone has to eat sometime during the day. When you are working 8 – 12 hours a day, you’re going to get hungry and start looking around for sustenance. If you are like most normal working Americans, you might look to the lunch you packed or dinner you brought with you, takeout, delivery, or fast food restaurants in the area to curb your hunger.

If you haven’t already brought food with you though, those other options can get expensive, especially on a daily basis and buying and consuming fried food on many occasions can become an unhealthy habit. In a society where we are trying to stay fit and eat better, what’s another option that can satisfy the rumblings in your stomach and also not hurt your wallet?

Did you know that the average adult spends nearly eight hours a day sitting? If you work in a sedentary work environment, the World Health Organization reports that you are at a higher risk for diabetes and heart disease. So if you can’t always get up and move around, you need to eat healthier! A vending machine that offers fresh fruits and vegetables, garden fresh salads and Nutri-Grain bars might help do the trick!

Most consumers purchase for convenience. A lunch hour doesn’t leave much time for employees to get their hands on a balanced meal, causing them to run to the nearest fast food chain. If a fully stocked vending machine with healthy crowd favorites was available on site, they would probably be more apt to eat it! A machine with fresh food in the lunchroom is certainly more convenient than leaving to find a McDonald’s, right?

Choosing to include a healthy vending machine in your office is the best investment you could make. Why not promote a healthy lifestyle with additional options for your hard-working employees?  From trail mix to pita chips and yogurt, the options are endless.
