Food vending machine uses

An internal dining solution is a practical employee dining option, as employees don’t have to leave their work environment to find a meal. This saves up to 30 minutes of time while fostering social cohesion and promoting efficient use of working hours.

For small and medium-sized enterprises that do not operate brick-and-mortar cafeterias for space or investment reasons, but still want to offer added value for their employees

For companies with shift operations that want to offer fresh and balanced food 24/7 instead of just sandwiches

For businesses with multiple warehouses or outlets where employees do not have direct access to a central cafeteria due to long distances

For agencies or small enterprises where employees take breaks when work allows rather than according to cafeteria hours 

As a way to upgrade staff lounges or break rooms in addition to operating a cafeteria 

For companies that are finding most employees are in the office at midweek due to new work models, with fluctuating numbers of diners
