Silicon Valley employees can say goodbye to static delivery routes and standardized menus.

The hotbed of technology innovation has given birth to an Internet of Things (IoT) fresh food startup that allows employees to preview what's available in the break room  from their mobile device and authorize payment just by picking an item from the machine.

Byte Foods, a San Rafael, Calif.-based startup with around 45 employees, utilizes proprietary software, a touchscreen and an Internet-connected, glassfront refrigerator to make it easy for employees to have fresh meals, snacks and drinks every day. The demand planning software ensures the refrigerator is always stocked with menu items tailored specifically to the individual employees.

"This allows the business to have high quality fresh meals in the office 24/7 that's catered for their specific employees," said Lee Mokri, co-founder and vice president of sales and marketing. "Now you can't tell the difference between what's in the restaurant down the street and what's in the office."

USA TEchnologies Apple Pay
Consumers hold their smart phone to the contactless reader to pay, earn and redeem loyalty points.
USA Technologies plans to integrate its MORE loyalty and payroll deduct platform with Apple Pay for use at up to 300,000 machines nationwide. Following the integration, operators will be able to offer an enhanced experience to their customers using Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.

In turn, consumers making a purchase will be able to take advantage of exclusive offers, promotions and discounts toward future purchases at participating machines connected to USAT's ePort Connect platform. 

USA Technologies plans to roll out the technology to select locations nationwide over the coming months. 

Newco Coffee CX Touch
The CX Touch uses 2-pound bulk hoppers for milk and chocolate.

The CX Touch auto eject specialty drink machine from Newco provides coffees, lattes, cappuccinos and more. The machine blends soluble milk and chocolate with individual pods of coffee and tea to create coffee house quality beverages.

The user scrolls through the high-resolution touchscreen, selects a drink and inserts a pod. The drink is prepared in less than a minute.

Because individual portion pods are brewed in a paper filter, all the aroma and taste components are able to be extracted properly. 
The MagexUSA machine has a patented lane system, enabling ease of packaging sizes.

ChattyCupcakes has introduced its first automated cupcake machine at the Galleria Mall in Mount Lebanon, Pa., a Pittsburgh suburb. The machine is made by MagexUSA, an Alps Innovations Group company.

The system is based on "The Big Store" built by MagexUSA, which comes with a patented lane system that enables ease of packaging sizes, plus a web cam, armor gauge steel, security locks, anti-vandal security glass, alarm, electronic door openers, and low consumption LED lighting.

The system also features back-end diagnostics and kiosk management for efficient operational and organizational control.

Alps Innovations is a custom vending machine manufacturer and developer of automated retailing systems, smart vending systems and self-service kiosks.
