U.S. company Carts Blanche LLC is promoting its VendaCarts mobile automated trailers as an alternative food and beverage delivery system in the aftermath of disasters nationwide, as well as an appealing business for veterans.
VendaCarts can be equipped with up to nine built-in vending machines, along with ATMs, digital signage boards, microwaves and change machines, along with coin-op games. Once on location, both sides of the trailer raise, creating awnings that expose the machines. The trailer design allows daily business activities to be accomplished by one person.
Facilitating disaster relief efforts, VendaCarts can be rapidly deployed and relocated, transporting food and beverages to disaster survivors and workforces at remote locations, explained Cartes Blanche chief executive Annette Nolan.
The VendaCarts business model also speeds the delivery of vendible food, with nine self-serve lines serving up to 250 people within 30 minutes.
VendaCarts operate in the recovery phase by delivering short- and long-term foodservice to people in disaster areas and at reconstruction and building sites.
The company is also promoting VendaCarts as a self-employment opportunity for veterans for their ease of use, flexible hours, mobility and wide-ranging applications, among other benefits.
