Selling Fresh Fruit and Vegetables in Vending Machines
The Wall Street Journal Online shows a video about a newly designed vending machine. With cushions, angled walls, and better control of temperature, these machines can sell fresh banana and ready-to-eat vegetables. It is a great idea of promoting healthy diet. The tradeoff is consumers are expected to pay “much more” than those selling in a grocery store. How do you expect the future of these vending machines? Do you see vending machine a complement or a threat to restaurant business? How so?
