Carvana Unveils New Eight-Story Vehicle Vending Machine

Woman in New CarYou can find just about anything in vending machines these days. Whether you’re looking to grab a quick bite to eat in your office or a new pair of headphones at the airport, you can usually find a vending machine that has just what you need.

Now, people in Charlotte, North Carolina can even buy cars from a vending machine owned and operated by Carvana.

This massive machine is eight stories tall, and it’s capable of holding up to 32 cars at a time. Carvana, which specializes in buying and selling vehicles online, designed the machine to give their customers a convenient new way to purchase cars without having to spend hours in a dealership. All they need to do is find the vehicle they want online, select a payment option, and then choose for it to be delivered to the vending machine for pickup.

Once the car arrives, its new owner can schedule a time to visit the vending machine and activate it with a large commemorative coin. The machine will then spring into action, sending the vehicle down to a delivery bay where it can be picked up by the customer and driven home. All of this is done without the help of any human employees.

Carvana hopes that the vending machine will encourage more people to buy cars online, rather than from traditional brick-and-mortar dealerships. Last year, the company began offering a similar vending machine service in Houston, Texas as well.

Uniqlo Brings Its Clothing Vending Machines to U.S. Markets

Uniqlo Brings Its Clothing Vending Machines to U.S. MarketsLooking for a few basic T-shirts in an array of different colors? Thanks to Japanese clothing company Uniqlo, you could soon purchase your shirts from a vending machine in a mall or airport. Uniqlo specializes in offering casual, affordable clothing that is simple yet fashion-forward. Although the company is hugely popular in its home country of Japan, it’s struggled to gain a secure foothold in the U.S. This can be attributed in large part to changing retail habits among American consumers.

That’s why Uniqlo is trying something new—offering consumers the opportunity to buy clothes from vending machines, rather than its massive flagship stores in major cities. The “Uniqlo To Go” vending machines will be stocked with a number of the company’s most popular items, including lightweight down jackets and heat-retaining shirts. The clothes are packaged in boxes and cans, and they can be returned in store or through the mail.

Uniqlo hopes that its vending machines will strike an appealing middle ground between traditional retail options and online e-commerce sites. To begin with, the company will bring 10 of its vending machines to locations throughout the country, including the Houston Airport and Queens Center in New York. Not only will the vending machines offer consumers a new way to purchase Uniqlo garments, they will also serve as eye-catching marketing tools for the company’s products.

If the pilot program is successful, we may see more Uniqlo To Go machines cropping up in other places across the country as well. These days, it seems like there’s virtually no limit to the things you can find in a vending machine.

The Disappoint Of Vending Machines That Don’t Deliver

Disappoint Of Vending MachinesHow many times have you gone into the work breakroom or cafeteria of a school for a vending machine snack and are met with an uncooperative machine that steals money rather than the delivering on the promise of a needed snack?

 

That scenario may be a bit more dramatic than the real occurrence, but you get the gist of the frustration.

 

Plain and simple, a vending machine is paid for by a corporation so that customers, employees and the public are provided with an affordable snack or beverage whenever they need one.

 

When a vending machine fails to work properly, whether it is with items that get stuck or money is taken but not processed for a purchased, this becomes a real problem and results in a downturn in vending machine revenue.

 

Vending machines can’t be fixed by those not experienced in the technical and mechanical functioning of a vending machine. Depending on the vending machine manufacturer, it could take days or weeks for a technician to come and service the machine.

 

It is unrealistic to expect your vending machine to work all the time without minor complications. Even the machines built with the greatest technology can malfunction in the slightest.

 

However, there is a great distinction between machines that break all the time and those that have problems on rare occasions.

 

That’s the difference between a good machine and a not so good one, how often they become problematic and the severity of the problem.

 

With Orsino Vending’s machines, you can expect our vending machines to be equipped with the best technology possible and to also receive professional technical support when you need it.

 

For service questions or to learn more about our vending machines, you can contact one of our service representatives at info@orsinovending.com or (201) 871-9286.

Stock Your Vending Machines With Drinks That Your Employees Will Enjoy

Stock Your Vending Machines With Drinks That Your Employees Will EnjoyVending machines are everywhere.

They are in offices, airports, malls, hotels, rest stops, health clubs, outside groceries stores; endless possible locations with a variety of drink options.

Any office with employees most likely provides vending machines to keep their employees happy and fed.

It’s a perk like having a fitness center, day care facilities, or a cafeteria, a vending machine is a common amenity in most office buildings these days.

As an employer, what are you stocking your vending machines with?

What are your employees drinking?

Are they looking for Coke or Pepsi, regular or diet?

What about those who drink cold coffee or those who love energy drinks?

What about those people who just love water?

Yes, sales will tell you what is most popular of what you’re already providing, but what about the things that you’re not providing?

Why not let your employees tell you what you’re looking for?

Conduct a companywide survey, and the results will not only benefit you as the employer but will also benefit your employees, as they will appreciate that you are thinking about them.

Stocking Your Vending Machine With Gluten-Free & Vegan Options

Stocking Your Vending Machine With Gluten-Free & Vegan OptionsPeople with Celiac’s disease or who have intolerance for gluten, eating out can be a nightmare on their digestive system. Up until a few years ago when the light was shone bright on the problems with gluten, the alternatives for food was extremely slim.

 

Living a healthy lifestyle has its ups and downs, especially for vegans. Vegans are those who do not eat or use products derived from animals or by-products such as eggs. On the up side, you are putting plenty of health-rich foods into your body, but on the down side, a vegan diet is very difficult to maintain and is expensive.

 

Both vegans and gluten-free eaters typically have a harder time eating out and snacking, especially with convenience foods like the ones you’d find in a vending machine.

 

Vending machines have a bad reputation for only stocking unhealthy, full of fat, sugar, and carb snacks. These foods will quickly force your energy level and mood to take a downward spiral, leaving you feeling tired and aggravated for the rest of the day.

 

Try being someone who, because of health and lifestyle choices, find that their only snack options are bad ones. Not having a handy means for obtaining a pick-me-up snack during the day is unfair.

 

A solution to this problem is to have a vending machine stocked with choices that suit all health needs of employees and guests. There are both gluten and vegan snacks and foods now on the market and these will certainly be appreciated if found in your office vending machine.

 

If you need a quality vending machine service, Orsino Vending is here to help. You can contact us at any time to discuss having a vending machine installed.

The Benefits of A Newer Vending Machine

The Benefits of A Newer Vending MachineThere is nothing more frustrating than being hungry for a pick-me-up snack during the work day only to have your money gobbled up by the vending machine. With no vending machine representative available at that exact moment, it’s good bye snack and hello aggravation.

Two scenarios that are all too frequent with old vending machines include: food and drink get stuck, and money gets stuck as well. When your food or drink gets jammed in the machine, you stand there helpless, banging on the glass like a maniac trying to loosen what’s stuck. The same goes for money that gets eaten by the machine, nothing you can do.

Rather than calling your vending machine company to come out and fix the old, tired machine, why not just replace it with a new machine? Newer model vending machines have a much less likely chance of encountering problems.

Service calls will be far and few between and your employees will be able to get that midday snack or refreshment when they need it and without losing money. Newer vending machines are also quicker to release the purchased items. Gone are the days of waiting what feels like an eternity for the granola bar or bottle of water to drop.

At Orsino Vending, we can provide your company with a new and efficient vending machine that won’t cause the headaches that an older machine will. You can contact us to hear more about the specific types of vending machines we have as well as the services provided.

Benefits Of Having A Healthy Drink Machine At School

Benefits Of Having A Healthy Drink Machine At School It is very common today to have vending machines in schools, specifically in the middle and high school. Vending machines are a great way for students and staff to get that necessary refresher during the day, especially if they forgot lunch that day.

Studies have shown greater productivity and student attentiveness when stomachs are fuller. Obviously, this does not apply when snacks and soda are the sole types of food and drink to be consumed during the school day. A vending machine stocked with healthy choices is much more suitable for a school atmosphere.

When we think of vending machines, we might automatically turn to food machines. But calories don’t need to come from just food, keeping hydrated with healthy drinks is important too. The average student spends a lot of time each day moving about from class to locker and back to class again. Let’s not forget about physical education and after school sports.

Important To Stay Hydrated

When thirst is not quenched, dehydration can quickly become an issue. Drink vending machines are very important, but can become problematic when the drinks supplied are high in sugar and low in good calories.

The right drinks to remain hydrated include water, Gatorade, low sugar fruit juices, milk and orange juice.

Students will gravitate towards these healthy drinks when they are available. For quality vending machines and services, contact Orsino Vending today. We would be happy to discuss supplying your school with food and drink vending machines.

Why Is It Imperative To Have Your Vending Machine Repaired Quickly

Sometimes the difference between a good day and bad day at the office is a quick trip to the vending machine for a refresher, whether it is a snack or a drink. For the work staff and visitors, a vending machine is an absolute necessity that can help quench thirst and hunger to keep on going.

Since vending machines are vital to the working community and its customers, keeping up on repairs and maintenance is crucial. Most machine repairs are not complicated and can be fixed by a professional vending company, but regardless of the severity, you should still repair the problem.

Vending machine repairs can revolve around coins that are lodged, snack and drink dispensers not functioning, light display, button, and electrical problems. When time is of the essence, and when there is little time to take a breather during the workday already, a broken vending machine can become a big issue among users.Why Is It Imperative To Have Your Vending Machine Repaired Quickly

Newer Machines Are More Durable

Newer vending machines are less likely to break, but that does not mean it is impossible to happen. This is why it is critical to stay on top of machine maintenance, to ensure it will function properly. If you suspect there is a problem with your vending machine, contact a professional as quickly as possible.

Orsino Vending is a reliable source for your vending machine needs. We provide state of the art machines that are quick and efficient. We also supply the snacks and beverages as well. Feel free to contact us to learn more about our services.

Why Car Dealerships Need A Vending Machine

Why Car Dealerships Need A Vending MachineSpending time in a car dealership is not always a quick visit. Typically, whether you are buying a vehicle and getting your car serviced, the time elapsed can be anywhere from forty five minutes to a couple of hours. While this time away from your busy life might seem like a much needed break, what happens if you get hungry?

 

Planning ahead and packing a snack are often last minute or non-existent thoughts, especially when you believe your dealership experience to be quick. You obviously can’t stop the salesman and say “Excuse me, but I think I’m going down the road to get a bite to eat, do you mind?”. More than likely, you’ll be looking to re-schedule.

Vending Machines Can Bring Customer Satisfaction

The need for snacks and a healthy bite are essential in a dealership. It can be quite difficult to concentrate, negotiate, and wait on an empty stomach. A vending machine will help to pass the time and provide a much needed hunger relief to your customers.

 

A vending machine that is filled with a wide variety of foods, from treats to sandwiches, salads, and drinks, will be unexpected, but completely grateful from customers and even the staff. When looking for a vending machine for your dealership, choosing a newer, more efficient, and quicker model is best.

 

Orsino Vending is a reliable company that provides quality vending machines as well as superior customer service. A vending machine in your dealership is a wise investment to suit the needs of customers and staff. Contact us to learn more about our services.
