Canteen Vending Services has teamed with Le Bread Xpress to install and manage Bake Xpress robotic bakery vending machines throughout North America, according to a press release.
Bake Xpress offers a selection of pastries, pizza and artisan sandwiches that are freshly baked at time of order.
Canteen has been operating Bake Xpress machines at corporate and university sites in the San Francisco Bay Area since late 2019 and has extended the sales agreement to deploy Bake Xpress machines into additional markets nationwide, including healthcare, hospitality, entertainment and transportation.
«The ability to provide unstaffed foodservice has proven especially valuable during unpredictable COVID-19 quarantines and closures,» Michael Coffey, chief strategy and innovation officer at Canteen North America, said in the press release. «We expect that Bake Xpress will continue to be a popular addition to our customers' breakrooms, lobbies and micro-markets.»
The Bake Xpress micro-bakeries offer up to six menu choices per machine, ranging from croissants to pizza. Each food item is prepared and partially baked at a traditional bakery before being stored in the Bake Xpress refrigeration unit and then freshly baked in Bake Xpress' smart oven at time of order.
Bake Xpress owner/operators can specify the menu based on their customers' preferences, choosing from 25 artisan foods created in partnerships with suppliers nationwide.
