UpMeals, the leading white-label, prepared-meal solution, launched its first SmartVending machine at a residential property– Devonshire Properties’ Larch Tower (Beach Towers) location in Vancouver, B.C. The newly installed machine will give the 1,000+ residents access to custom-curated healthy meals available in the lobby of the building, 24/7. Residents will be able to grab healthy options on their way to work in the morning, have a freshly prepared entrée in the evening and have access to healthy treats and snacks throughout the day. The Smart Vending machine will also hold 25 percent of items that are daily necessities, such as laundry cards, detergent, and toothpaste.
The SmartVending hardware is a refrigerated machine installed in the Larch Tower lobby, located at 1600 Beach Avenue, with an interface customized to reflect Devonshire’s branding. The healthy meals are delivered to the machine at a regular cadence to ensure ultimate freshness. Devonshire Properties will have the ability to monitor their SmartVending machine remotely, create plans for meals nearing their expiry date and build menus based on the popularity of food items.
