SAN DIEGO, CA -- Generation Next Franchise Brands said it achieved more than 100,000 vends in a 90-day period during a field test designed to improve overall machine performance, determine consumer pricing habits and identify the best- performing location categories.
According to the company, cups sold for an average of $4.61 and hospitals, museums, malls, family fun centers, high schools and universities were the best-performing location categories.
The month's top-five performing kiosks were reportedly located in cold weather climates suggesting sales performance is non-seasonal. Thermal hardware and software upgrades resulted in higher week over week average sales per unit, according to Generation Next.
The company said its introduction of promotional code software resulted in an increase in repeat customers, and 61% of transactions were made with debit/credit cards versus cash.            
"We are encouraged by the increased productivity and strong sales across multiple location categories resulting from the improved design of this kiosk," said Generation Next Franchise Brands chief executive Nick Yates. "After a challenging initial rollout that required us to make multiple design enhancements and software upgrades, the company has achieved over 100,000 vends in a 90-day period. We feel well positioned to get back on-track in 2019."
