The food and beverage vending market is over $40 billion in sales in the U.S. alone. EatWave, a provider of an innovative line of all-in-one hot and cold vending machines, recently introduced a patent pending, fully automated and refrigerated vending machine with an internal microwave cooking unit.
The newly launched EatWave is ADA-compliant and Energy Star rated. It quickly heats and vends pre-packaged hot food items and vends a variety of snack, cold food and cold drink items to serve a complete meal.
By serving an entire meal of hot food, snacks and cold beverages, EatWave provides flexibility in food selection to consumers, as well as a high return on investment to machine owners.
In a statement, Andrew Preston, CEO at EatWave Vending, said, “EatWave allows vending operators and locations to conserve space and energy by replacing multiple vending machines with our single hot and cold design.” “EatWave is perfect for office break-rooms, hotels, schools, airports and other locations wanting to offer a complete meal for people on the go looking to grab a quick bite.”
Built on a standard vending machine chassis, EatWave’s patent pending internal design with microwave cooking unit utilizes a gravity delivery system. It needs minimal maintenance and allows for maximum uptime.
Its fully adjustable and reconfigurable item trays allow for a customizable menu as well, including healthy food options.
EatWave’s glass front showcases the food and drink brands stocked in the machine to create a high consumer confidence in the quality of the food served.
The new vending machine also features the VENDCheck software, which allows for online remote monitoring of machine data and inventory through low-cost Ethernet communications. The software offers another level of efficiency by consolidating visits to the machine for restocking and cash management.
