A novel approach to vending in schools
Since our launch in December 2006, boxlogix have supplied a wide range of healthy products to hundreds of schools, colleges and leisure sites across England, Scotland and Wales.
We’ve recently been working alongside a local high school who have taken a novel approach the way they use vending to reward students.
The Lancashire-based school hadn’t had any vending facilities for over a year and they recently took a REHYDR8.NOW machine part of a trial. The machine, which offers flavoured milks, fruit juices, water and smoothies, proved to be an instant success with the pupils.
The school’s P.E specialist saw the student’s interest in the machine as an opportunity to encourage more of the teenagers to get involved in the school’s extensive extra-curricular sports programme.
The machine is now being used as an incentive to encourage students to attend the PE clubs. Participants in the sports activities are allowed to access the machine at any time of day, whereas other pupils have more restricted use. The profits from the machine are fed back into the PE budget to pay for minibuses and referees.
The school’s P.E specialist said:
“When pupils taste a product and like it, they spread the word amongst their friends and this really helps to increase uptake”
“As a result of this scheme, we have seen a good increase in the number of students attending the after-school sport clubs”.
It goes without saying that consumers want great tasting products from their vending experience – and that ultimately these products will generate more revenue for the machines.
In December 2005 trials were started to determine the viability of healthier vending machines in education and leisure. The trials were carried out across 23 schools in the North of England from December 2005 to April 2006 and included water, fruit juice, smoothies and milk. During the trials the machines were put into the schools, sometimes alongside other drinks vendors. The results were overwhelming with an impressive uptake in sales from healthier drinks machines.
So, we can safely say that we can guarantee that your customers will love the products – we’ve heard it from the horse’s mouth!
