Kepak Unveils Revolutionary Vending Technology Into UK Market

Kepak is expanding its popular one-stop automated retail solution with an innovative first for the sector, a Hot Vend Kiosk.

Launching into the OOH channel this month, the machine will be exclusive to Kepak and will dispense one of its Cook-in-Box range burgers within 80 seconds of the user making their choice. The machine will have the capacity to hold up to 52 of Kepak’s Cook-In-Box range which comprises Cheese Melt, Breakfast Muffin and Peri Peri Chicken burgers.

On being the first to market with the Hot Vend Kiosk, Brian Farrell, CEO of Kepak Foods commented, “This is a major step forward for both the automated retail sector and Kepak’s participation within it. The team has successfully developed a best-in-class solution which we’re confident our customers and retail partners will see as a compelling enhancement to their in-store proposition.”

Automated retail and new business controller, Foods Division at Kepak, Carl Hunter added: “Through the ongoing support of Automated Retail Technologies, our partners on this landmark project, we’ve been able to introduce this ground-breaking technology, The Hot Vend Kiosk, to the UK market, initially in Luton and Stansted airports but we also have plans to target other busy sectors including mass transit, higher education and forecourts across the country.

“We know that consumers will continue to tighten the purse strings with the increased cost of living over the next few months, bringing with it an increased focus on workplace and vending solutions. This year we’ve seen a phenomenal increase in demand at +61%*[1], highlighting the transition to low-cost grab-and-go options while eating out of home.”

Carl added: “The new Hot Vend Kiosk offers both customers and consumers an easy, fuss-free way to enjoy hot food on-the-go 24/7, with touch screen pay and go and quick dispense technology. We’re thrilled to be the first provider to bring this latest automated retail solution to the UK.”

In addition to its new Hot Vend Kiosk, Kepak provides a one stop solution for those seeking automated retail and vending solutions, working in partnership with industry leading businesses across food to go, interior design and payment technology to provide customers with the ultimate turn-key operation.
