‘Investment in new technology’ is behind Broderick’s industry-boosting orders for more than 500 machines.


‘Investment in new technology’ is behind Broderick’s industry-boosting orders for more than 500 state-of-the-art, free-standing machines. And that’s just in the first half of 2014…Whilst the industry appears to some observers to have one distracted eye on the emerging ‘single cup’ market, Broderick’s has continued to focus its attention entirely upon adapting vending technology to serve -with a certain elan as well as with incomparable convenience and efficiency – the largest possible number of discerning consumers, rather than ‘the coffee pod punter’.

Broderick’s consumption of free standing vending machines in the year to date has been voracious – indeed, one manufacturer was compelled to revise its lead time for a particular machine up to ten weeks, as Broderick’s demands played havoc with sales forecasts. To date in 2014, the company has ordered more than 500 brand new machines, shared ‘between the four main manufacturers’.

The same touch screen technology with which Broderick’s has ignited vending sales at Manchester Airport and other high-footfall destinations is now making its way into the business and industry arena. From the Carol Nash Group in Altrincham, to Autotrader’s new prestigious regional offices in central Manchester, touch screen technologies are pushing the boundaries of payment systems and innovation, to the benefit of customers, consumers and operator alike.

‘The installation of the new VE Broderick touch range adds the ultimate vending experience to the city of Manchester’s portfolio of world-class digital design and development and that its customers are buying into the digital vending experience, future-proofing their vending and taking advantage of the benefits incumbent in increased interactivity between vendor and consumer’, said Peter Broderick, Sales Director at Broderick’s.

As an example of this, Peter cites Autotrader: ‘the vending machines their display daily menus and promotions that are available in the building’s brace of Broderick’s boutique coffee shops’, he said.

Additionally, Nichols Plc, the manufacturers behind much-loved drinks brand Vimto, recently chose to launch their new animated ‘Vimtoad’ character via those Broderick’s HD media screen machines that are situated in Business & Industry and the Education sector. (It’s well worth a look; you can see the Vimtoad video here).

As more ad agencies and brands recognise the potential of its digital project, the platform will expand its scope significantly’, Peter concluded.

And, ‘coming soon’, Broderick’s plan another industry ‘first’ – the release of an ‘App’ that will work across both its vending and coffee bar channels… Watch this space.

Have You Got The Bottle To Get Rid Of Cans?


Look around you: the 33cl canned drink has virtually disappeared from High Street shops and now, it’s disappearing from vending, too. Were moving to the PET, or plastic bottle, because they do the job so much better. In fact, by the end of Q1, 2014, the change should be complete. Why? Because PET bottles are more robust than cans and they’re much more convenient: not everybody can consume a drink in one go and thanks to screw top lids, bottles can be resealed to be enjoyed later.

PET bottles are just as easily recycled as old fashioned cans, so the extra convenience does not come with a green downside... On top of all that, we’ve been warned by both Coca Cola and Britivic that we should expect price rises on cans in the very near future... So, isn’t it time to ‘can’ the can and big-up the bottle? We stock a huge range of bottled drinks, embracing best selling brands and of course water. To find out more, speak to your Account Manager. You know it makes sense!
