Originally, vending machines were utilized for a much different purpose than they are utilized today. They were invented well over a 100 years ago and, believe it or not, were originally intended to sell holy water. In 1888, we saw the first vending machines that sold edibles i.e. they were gum dispensers that were located in the train stations of New York City. By 1950, they provided vendors with the capabilities to sell refrigerated sandwiches however, few sold these perishable goods.
A New Twist on an Old Automat
It wasn’t until recently, that vending machines began selling more than their usual fare of cigarettes, soda, candy, and coffee. Nowadays, you can find vending machines that sell eggs, fresh fruit, nutritious juices, raw milk, fresh meals on the go, and much more. These foods don’t contain any preservatives and provide consumers with healthy options that many fast food restaurants and other vending machines just don’t offer on their menus.
This new movement, dubbed ‘Fresh Vending’ is making waves all over the country. Fresh Vending aims to make healthy eating more accessible, convenient, and affordable by providing a nutritious alternative to the traditional vending machines that are filled with junk food. That is to say, food that is loaded with fat, preservatives, salt, processed sugar, and a host of other chemicals that are unhealthy and unsatisfying. The result is a diverse and nutritional menu that is accessible to consumers with just a push of a button.
