Innovative Trend for Unique, Convenient Food

More and more consumers are getting creative when it comes to their food--and not just what they eat, but how they eat it! Mason jar salads are a popular trend with healthy eaters easily able to transport their salad creations on-the-go. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but also a healthy solution to many commuters, travelers and busybodies on the move. 

Farmer's Fridge (US)
Farmer's Fridge, a new healthy vending machine concept, delivers delicious gourmet salads and snacks to customers via automated kiosks around the Chicagoland area.  Packaged in recyclable plastic mason-like jars and made fresh each morning, customers can choose from several delicious salad options, as well as breakfast and snack items, each designed to offer various benefits of a healthy diet.

Beverly Hills Caviar (US)
From $5 to $600, customers in Beverly Hills, CA, now have access to the delicacy of caviar from a vending machine. The caviar is dispensed in a glass jar and has an expiration date of 365 days.

Let's Pizza (IT)
Revolutionizing the hot food vending industry in less than 3 minutes, Let's Pizza kneads the dough, forms a round, adds tomato sauce, layers toppings and then bakes it all in front of every customer. Let's Pizza is basically a mini-pizzeria that's open 24 hours a day!

Moet & Chandon Champagne Vending Machine (UK)
Located in the Selfridge's department store in London, this Champagne vending machine holds 200 milliliter bottles for $29 each. Each bottle is decorated with Swarovski crystals and the machine uses robotic arms to deliver the Champagne safely to the customer.

Corner Chips (BE)
Outside of Brussels, Belgium, this unique vending machine is a diet-breaker. Hot fries are delivered in 95 seconds with your choice of condiment including ketchup and mayo. Corner Chips is built with high-tech technology such as remote-management that lets its operator know when it's almost out of potatoes.

May holidays include Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day and Memorial Day.  See our recipe selections to the left.



All the best in food, wine, and travel.

Happy May,
