Selecta opened East Midlands Airport’s first Foodies-On-The Go – a fresh and exciting unattended retail solution, offering well-known snacks and drinks 24/7 using Smart Fridge technology – on 6 July.
Situated in the check-in hall before security, the new facility has been installed ahead of the airports’ busiest weeks of the year for passenger travel. Customers will be able to enjoy Lavazza coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches or snacks at any time of the day or night. They can also charge their mobile phone at the same time.
Richard Duckworth, East Midlands Airport’s Commercial Trading Manager, says: “Having a Foodies-On-The-Go facility in our check-in hall is welcome investment and will improve the customer experience, especially as we enter our busiest weeks of the year. There has been no food or drink provision in the check-in hall for some time and this provides a great solution. I’m confident that it will be well-received by airport and airline colleagues too.”
In partnership with Lavazza, Foodies-to-go offers customers a barista-quality coffee experience – using high-quality freshly-ground beans – at a competitive price.
The opening follows a successful launch of Foodies-on-the-go by Selecta at East Croydon Station, and now offers the same experience to airport staff and customers.
‘Foodies is an exciting retail concept that provides food and drink on the go or in the workplace’, Selecta MD Paul Hearne said. (That’s Paul in the main picture). ‘It is a safe and secure solution that uses smart technology and intelligent vending. Our smart fridges allow people to browse, check ingredients and put a product back, but only get charged for what they finally take. It is the ultimate seamless consumer experience.’
