KENNESAW, GA -- Kennesaw State University will place a Shop24 automated store on campus during the coming school year. The machine, manufactured by Columbus, OH-based Shop24 Global LLC, will break ground as its first deployment in Georgia.
KSU has more than 25,000 students and is the third-largest institution in the Georgia's university system.
The giant refrigerated vending machine is higher than 9 ft., is 10 feet deep and stretches a minimum 13 feet wide. It offers up to 200 traditional convenience items ranging in weight from less than 1 oz. and up to 8 lbs.
"Kennesaw State continually seeks innovative ways to deliver food services to its students, focusing on convenience, selection and quality," said Randy Shelton, executive director of auxiliary services and programs at KSU. "Shop24 will be a welcome addition as part of the world-class Auxiliary Services and Programs already developed for our students."
Separately, the State University of New York system has been widening its deployment of Shop24 robotic stores. Its most recent installation is on the SUNY Cobleskill campus. | SEE STORY
