Pantry Opens Its Reservations for Its Smart Sensor-Based Vending Machine.
Following strong demand and a successful pilot program with cafeteria and café clients in the San Francisco Bay Area, Pantry today announced the launch of a nationwide waiting list and reservation system for its solution.
Pantry’s technology delivers a unique experience by enabling clients to shorten waiting lines during busy peak hours, sell fresh food in more locations, and track inventory with ease via a unique RFID-based technology that tracks each item in the glass-door kiosk. Pantry’s patent pending technology also allows clients to stock, track, and sell a wide variety of food and drink items ranging in shapes and sizes from salads to sushi.
Consumers using the Pantry solution can purchase breakfast, lunch, or dinner in less than ten seconds, all while having the ability to open the glass door, hold their product and read ingredients – as they would in any supermarket – before making a decision to purchase.
“UCSF is accessible 24 hours a day, so it’s important for us to have easy access to fresh food at all hours,” said Chuck Davies, Associate Foodservice Director at UCSF. “Since implementing the Pantry solution in March, we’ve seen an increase in sales and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. These machines also turn heads; something you don’t ordinarily say about a vending machine.”
“We’ve seen tremendous interest from cafes, vending operators, restaurant managers, and top consumer product brands looking to improve their customer experience,” said Pantry co-founder Alex Yancher. “The launch of our waiting list gives us an opportunity to manage our growing demand and better address client expectations.”
