Vending Machines Our Way

January 31st, 2013

Many of our employees have been requesting that we get a vending machine, and after one of them took the time to get a quote from San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines we finally decided that it might be a good option to have for the employees at the office.

One of the reasons I was reluctant to install a vending machine was because I didn’t want to encourage unhealthy eating by providing unhealthy snacks at the office. I didn’t want my employees to have an endless supply of soda and candy at their fingertips. Instead, they just complained because there weren’t many dining options where our office is located.

However, the employee that talked to San Francisco Bay Area Vending told me that the vending machines were totally customizable and they offer many healthy options for those watching their sodium, fat and caloric intake. For example, they offer Propel water and granola bars in addition to offering classic snacks like candy bars and soda.

They also offer all of the brands that you would want: Coca Cola, Pepsi, Milk Way, Snickers, Lays—all of the snacks you would want to find in a vending machine, plus healthy options too. I realized that, at the end of the day, I can’t control what my staff eats. That’s really up to them. If they want to drink five sodas back to back, that’s their choice, all I can do in encourage them otherwise.

In fact, I thought up a cool way to encourage them to eat healthier by subsidizing the healthier choices in the vending machine. Everything that is better for your health is lower in price. Not because it is cheaper, but because I am making it that way. I think that will be a good compromise to make sure to reward them for eating better.

I am really glad that we got in touch with San Francisco Bay Area Vending to get vending machines that met our needs as an office. And the fact that I could completely customize the vending machine was a really cool idea. I didn’t know that doing that for a vending machine was even possible. Corporate Cuisine really made it easy for my office to get the snacks we need at a price we want!
