Snack vending has been apparent in schools since the arrival of glass fronted vending machines in the 1960’s and has been streamlined throughout the years to adapt to market trends and innovation. They don’t get much more innovative than this latest development, however, a robot vending machine in the USA known as ‘Snackbot’ that allows students to have their snacks personally delivered to them!
You may have remembered that our branch division, Express Refreshments, got on board with Black Friday last month. In a unique, charitable twist, we committed to ‘teaming up’ with our Micro Market customers to donate 10p per sale to their chosen charities. It was a very successful promotion, and we’re now delighted to announce exactly how much we managed to raise…
Here at Coinadrink we pride ourselves on our standard of customer service, but we never stand still and we’re always looking to improve. QR codes are now being added to the Merchant Media snack machines as they are delivered to us, which will create a new, simple way to report service calls into us. This is also something that we’re also looking to add to the rest of our range in the near future and we’re already in the process of rolling them out.
‘I’m a Celebrity’ is back on our screens this Sunday 18th November for series 18 and if you’re anything like us here in the office then it’s very big news! This years’ lineup is an enticing one to say the least, with the likes of Harry Redknapp, John Barrowman and Fleur East heading into the jungle. With maximum stress and limited food, brace yourselves for lots of excitement, lots of drama…and no coffee to see them through!
This week is the 14thconsecutive National Chocolate Week and it’s hardly surprising it’s been going on for so long really, is it? As far as themed occasions go, celebrating our love of the chocolate bar has to be one of the easiest to do. For this week, I have decided to do a little research into some of the facts behind the Nation’s favourite treat. Granted, none of us will care too much when we’re stuffing our faces, but they’re nice to know anyway, right? And some of them are particularly interesting indeed…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that The Apprentice is back on our TV screens from tomorrow, Wednesday 3rdOctober.
Lord Sugar and co will again start the ball rolling to find his next apprentice, or two if last year is anything to go by, with the contestants competing in a series of business related challenges for the grand prize.
Anyone who has the slightest interest in the X Factor (not me!) will have noticed that there has been a big change in the proceedings for the new series. There is a new lineup of judges! Now, in order to give you lovely people a link it to vending somehow, I had to think hard.
Before you groan and get on with your day, bear with me here. Every Saturday evening for the foreseeable they will be on our TV screens providing their thoughts and entertainment and sipping on a mug of…something. What that ‘something’ is, though, could make for some pretty interesting predictions!
