Marriott launches healthy food vending machine
Thanks for posting, uggboy!
I wonder if I'm the only person reading the article who shudders at the thought of kale-and-quinoa salad from a vending machine?
It might be really good, but it will be a hard sell to get people in the US to try it even if they like that type of salad just because of the stigma of getting food out of vending machines. Usually vending machines are associated with unhealthy snacks.. I think it's good to provide healthier options and hopefully it will catch on.
I personally wouldn't have a problem with concept, as long they offer quality and value, plus products which really help us to be healthy while eating.
Indeed, I hope this concept catches on and will be rolled out eventually worldwide by Marriott, overall IMHO it's a great idea and hopefully succeeds. It's all about changing attitudes and lifestyle concepts away from the "vending machine type" stigma.
The only problem with this concept is that there just won't be enough demand in the places that would benefit from this the most.
Super yum for super food !
