Kuharich: When I came to work here, I found it interesting that we were going to provide a mobile story for this industry because vending is not known for being cutting edge. It’s a low-margin sector. Mobile is totally new for them. For people who live on their phones though, it’s a no brainer to buy a vending meal from an app. The customer is a micro-market service and the purchases are usually $10 or less, which might surprise people, but it’s a perfect fit for mobile pay.
