PepsiCo to Launch Social Vending Machine

PepsiCo has announced that it will be producing a ‘Social Vending’ machine allowing its U.S. customers to buy each other drinks remotely.
The machine will allow a user to buy their friend a drink at similar machines by recording the recipent’s name, number with a personal message for the lucky person.
“Social Vending extends our consumers’ social networks beyond the confines of their own devices and transforms a static, transaction-oriented experience into something fun and exciting,” said Mikel Durham, an innovation officer at PepsiCo Foodservice. (source – Reuters)
Will this "Social Vending" take off? Will this technology ever come to the U.K. ? At this time it seems unlikely however the rise of social networking and innovations within the vending industry means the future is by no means certain.  Video of the PepsiCo "Social Vending" machine.

This month LTT Vending have launched their specialist range of coffee machines and vending services, to meet the sophisticated needs of London businesses.Call 0800 954 1044 to discuss the needs of your business.

The economic climate has driven demand for coffee shop style drinks; including Cappuccino, Latte and Mocha, to be served in the workplace. As staff can no longer afford to purchase such drinks from coffee houses on their breaks, the expectations of their employers to provide high quality beverages has risen.

At the same time employers are cutting their costs wherever possible. Therefore LTT have created the Ultimate Drinks Solution, the FREE fully managed Flavia service - pay only for the drinks. The Flavia Creation 400 brewer serves high quality coffee shop style hot drinks from freshly ground coffee, real leaf teas and indulgent Galaxy hot chocolate. LTT's designated Flavia team provide FREE cleaning and merchandising of the Flavia Creation 400 brewer, FREE servicing and maintenance and complimentary stock replenishment advice. Many businesses are offsetting the cost of the drinks by installing the optional pay pod onto the Flavia brewer and charging their staff a minimum cost for each drink. 

LTT's Bean to Cup Fresh milk coffee machine caters for sophisticated tastes. The 21 drink selections use freshly ground bean to cup espresso coffee and an authentic barrister style fresh milk frother for cappuccinos, lattes etc. 

For businesses requiring a complete range of vending machines assistance designing a breakout area for your staff and visitors. LTT's Operated Vending Service includes the design and build of such areas incorporating your companies' branding to provide a functional and comfortable space.
