Farmer’s Fridge has developed a network of vending machines that use a cellular modem to a cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) and inventory-control system. Each salad is packed into a large recyclable PET plastic jar, and the vending system dispenses the ordered food using a sort of robotic arm. Each vending machine contains a PC, which powers the user interface and back-end payment processing. Customers use a touchscreen interface to order, and they pay by credit card. Learn how the startup is scaling up its fresh-made salad-vending system, and how it expects to see the technology deployed at 100 locations next year.
