"Our mission since we opened our micro market business was to eliminate as many barriers to entry as possible" said Todd Westby, CEO of 32M's parent company, TW Vending. "With a kiosk priced at $1,295, we have done that and we are going to be rolling out several other initiatives through our strategic distributor network to further remove all barriers to entry for all operators, new and old, to this marketplace"
32M entered the micro market business in late 2012 and is a compliment to its' commissary business that has operated a kiosk system since 2002. 32M now has over 200 locations throughout the country. "We believe we are just at the forefront of what will be a complete game-changer in this industry" said 32M's Patrick McMullan. "We are certain that with our distributor relationships and our leading each technology and ROI, we can bring micro markets to any employee locations, big and small. Plus, our pricing structure allows operators to cover an entire locations with multiple markets, our MacroMarket concept, using these Tablet Kiosks in addition to our best-selling Market Kiosk. In the end, we are certain this kiosk allows you to get any market versus the kiosk dictating which markets you can open."
This kiosk has a credit card swipe and built in scanning ability. Future models will also employ a bill intake unit. It comes standard as a tablet top mount. 32M is also rewarding existing 32M operators for their loyalty offering the Tablet Kiosk for $895 through February 15. "These operators have been the staple of growing and proving our system. We want to reward them for this loyalty by offering them an unprecedent price in this industry" added Mr. Westby.
32M also is closing in on opening its' first kiosk-less micro market. "We are working on our first location that will completely rely on our industry first smart phone application"
32M mobile applications are available in both the Android and iPhone markets. To date over 1500 users have downloaded and use this app on a regular basis. "While that number may seem small, that is likely a thousand plus users who would not use the market if they didn't have this" added Mr. Westby.
The Tablet Kiosk rollout is the first of several promotions 32M is working on in the first quarter of 2014. 32M will be offering several social media specials on equipment and services throughout the first quarter. 32M just finished a free webinar series where nearly 100 participants listened in to their "What is a MicroMarket?"
