Pop Chips, San Pellegrino Water and Clif Peanut Bars were some of the top-selling items in a recent survey of operators of Canadian Healthy Vending’s Max! vending machines. The big surprise in the survey was the large number of products that appeared in the survey results. Unlike traditional vending fare—the potato chips and sugary drinks found in countless machines—healthy snack segments are not dominated by one brand or product. Healthy snack machine operators choose from hundreds of items from a wide variety of producers, big and small. To keep on top of this long list of products, Max! operators track their sales through built-in telemetry system that allows them to track each sale in near real-time. The Max! machine, in addition to the telemetry features, includes an interactive menu system that allows users to request items for their machines and a video monitor that displays nutritional information and popular products they can choose from.
