A Paris butcher has installed a vending machine

Publié le 7 July 2016

It’s now possible to eat quality meat or fresh produce at any hour of the day for customers of L’Ami Txulette since the Basque butcher installed a vending machine in his shop.

A Paris butcher has installed a vending machine

The increase in the number of vending machines is a growing trend in retail: a number of businesses in New York, London and even further afield have already adopted the trend. So what’s the idea? To be available 24 hours a day to adapt to new methods of consumption.

Florence and Michel Pouzol, two butchers in Paris, wanted to offer their customers just such a service. They therefore installed a vending machine on the front of their store allowing customers to buy food outside opening hours.

Another advantage of the machine is that it eases congestion within the store: busy customers can, even when the shop is open, use the vending machine for quick purchases and avoid queues at the till.

Products are prepared and vacuum packed by the butcher, following the packaging and labelling standards used by supermarkets. They are then on sale at 10-20 cents above the in-store cost.

Vending 3

There is a wide range of choice: ready prepared meals or easy to cook meat, side dishes… And the idea has been a success: less than two weeks after installing the vending machine on February 8 2016, it had already covered its costs.
