Gone are the days that people associate vending machines with junk food snacks—now that this has become a popular way to dispense everything from champagne to healthy fresh food, these machines are being viewed as convenient self-serve gourmet shops. Spanish design firm Mormedi's refined 'Button Gourmet' perfectly exemplifies this.
The Button Gourmet shop is built in a modular way that's designed to be customized to the requirements of a space. The shop's different stations allow patrons to pick up a variety of hot and cold food items on-demand, ranging from a single snack or drink to a full-on meal. Beyond conventional details like price, the upscale vending machine also supplies nutritional information.
The self-serve unit operates 24/7, making it especially valuable in high-traffic areas where people want to find a variety of food choices quickly and conveniently.
