A lot of people are still getting a lot of their groceries from the traditional grocery stores, but many of them are having trouble finding a vending machine that will fit in their home.
According to the American Association of Food Service Management (AAFMS), a leading food service management consulting firm, only about 10% of Americans have the proper equipment to use an electric-powered, vending machine.
The reason is simple: the machines don’t have the right type of cord or the right number of switches.
“They’re basically just the same as a dishwasher,” said AAFMS CEO Dr. Karen Hildebrand.
“They have one small switch to turn the machine on, one small knob to turn it off.
It’s a little bit confusing, but it’s still the same process.
You’ve got to have a good cord.”
