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!
2019 is here and with that comes an exciting lineup of vending machines. The Krea Touch from Evoca is just one.

The New Year is now upon us and with that comes a host of resolutions that we’d all love to stick to. From eating healthier to hitting the gym at least a couple of times a week, we’re all desperate to better ourselves after a Christmas period undoubtedly consumed with lots of alcohol and lots of chocolate…Step one, before anything else however, is to set manageable goals.
Despite the big push from the government, there is still not enough being done for effective recycling.

Part of my role here at Coinadrink is manning our social media platforms and last week I noticed something that really caught my attention. One of our followers tweeted that this week was National Customer Service Week, an element of our business that we really believe sets us apart from the competition.

Do you remember the homeless vending machine in Nottingham at the back end of last year? Set up by Action Hunger, the machine provided 24 hour access to food, clothing and hygiene products for homeless people and sounded a great idea. Unfortunately, however, it didn’t catch on. The council believed it was ‘encouraging’ people to stay on the streets, so that was that. The disappointing backtrack clearly hasn’t discouraged others, though, which is fantastic.
