Frozen robotic vendor Fastcorp partners with FirstLease - November 23, 2012

Frozen robotic vendor Fastcorp partners with FirstLease to offer a unique loan program on its line of Evolution Vending Machines and other robotic technologies FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Fastcorp is shaking things up with its robotic Evolution machines that, until recently, have been confined to frozen vending. New technologies and product categories expand vending capabilities, and might create some novel business opportunities. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRLog (Press Release) – Nov. 23, 2012 – Topping the news is the Danbury, CT, machine manufacturer’s launch of its Dual-Asset Evolution vender. This model maintains the vacuum robotic arm and base-mounted temperature-controlled chest design of Fastcorp’s signature frozen machine, but expands the temperature range to -20°F to 65°F. This gives operators the flexibility to vend products at frozen, refrigerated or ambient temperatures. Dual-Asset Evolutions set to refrigerated temperatures for fresh food applications can accommodate sandwiches and salads of all shapes and sizes, in addition to beverages and chips. A simple adjustment to the digital controller transforms the vender into a frozen machine that can vend microwaveable convenience foods and ice cream. Products can be stocked and stored frozen, or slacked in machines set to refrigerated temperatures. MILKSHAKE VENDING One way in which Fastcorp is harnessing this new flexibility is to accommodate the “soft-freeze” category in its machines, which spearheads the sale of ready-to-drink milkshakes in vending. The company has teamed up with two suppliers of prepackaged shakes to deliver a turnkey program to operators. One of these partners is Archibald Frozen Desserts (New Albany, IN), whose Ready Shake ready-serve milkshakes are merchandised in a dedicated branded Evolution machine configured to a soft-freeze temperature of 5°F. The shakes dispense at a thicker consistency than the typical milkshake, which some consumers prefer. Those who favor a more traditional liquid milkshake can slack the product for three to … Continue reading
