Intelligent small business owners are driving the future of the vending machine as evidence by the baguette and seafood vending machine. This aquatic vending machine was spotted in Mungia, Spain, outside the seafood shop Arrandegia Martin.

The brothers behind Arrandegia Martin (Ruben and Marga Rios) decided that a vending machine was the perfect way to keep their profits up even after they had closed for the day. The machine offers packaged sardines, anchovies, hake and shrimp in addition to cooked seafood. All items sold in the machine are priced exactly the same in the store. The seafood vending machine has become such a hit that the Rios brothers are planning on expanding its offerings to include live bait for fishermen who are up before the sun.
