On the Goodnature Radio Podcast final week, our visitor Kaitlin Soto (founding father of Flourish Juice Co) detailed for us how her small uncooked juice bar has been utilizing a sensible fridge (Byte Technology) as a high-tech juice merchandising machine.
Principally, the best way the fridge works is that it robotically is aware of what’s inside, utilizing RFID-tagged juice bottles (it really works on any merchandise, not simply juice). A buyer that’s serious about buying swipes their bank card, then they’ll open the door and take what they need. The fridge then costs the cardboard for the gadgets which were eliminated.
Based mostly on the dialogue on the Goodnature Juicing Facebook group, there are different juice firms utilizing these new units as nicely, like Veg’n Out, whose customized good fridge is pictured beneath.
The very best half about this technique is that the gross sales are nonetheless going direct to shopper from the juice maker, which means there isn’t a wholesale side, and subsequently, no pasteurization legal guidelines to fret about (that is my very own opinion, make certain to seek the advice of your native well being division). Many purchasers have tried issues like this prior to now, however expertise (up till now) has made it laborious to handle stock, temperature, and gross sales remotely. I really feel very optimistic about these new units and the way it will help our Goodnature Household promote juice to extra individuals of their native communities.
The worth listed on their web site for the fridge is $4,500 for every fridge plus additional charges for cell connectivity, bank card processing, and so forth. I’ve heard there’s a brand new model for $5,500 that features tap-to-pay.
That is one thing new we simply realized about final week, in order we be taught extra we’ll maintain the group up to date. One of the simplest ways to remain up to date is to hitch our Facebook group and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
