LOCATION IS KEY
Finding the Most Suitable Machine for Every Location
Placing the right machine in the right location is an important factor when considering how to bring in the optimum volume of customers and capitalise on them appropriately.
Holding Out for a Hero
Around this year 2000 years ago, a genius Greek inventor named Hero established our industry, with the creation of the world’s first vending machine.
It could not dispense a Milkshake or a Frothy Latte, but was a liquid dispenser of sorts. The machine delivered holy water when a coin was inserted into a slot.
How did it work?
An inserted coin hit a pan, which was attached to a lever
When the coin hit, the lever would move and open a valve
When the valve opened, water would dispense out
The water would stop dispensing after the coin fell from the pan
No longer weighted down, the pan would snap the valve closed
