New safety feature in all The Jar - Healthy Vending machines

Updated: Jan 20, 2023

We suppose this year made us all very tired and anxious in that or another way. Rapid changes have been happening to our lives since March and we still see no end to it. Some might say this is just the moment we have to stay quiet and live through but at the Jar, we believe there could not be a better time to get outside of the box and innovate. For the past few months, we’ve been thinking about a new solution for the vending machines which would bring our customers the feeling of safety even at unprecedented times. Introducing you to our new QR code system soon available at all our machines.

How did the jar come to the idea of the QR code system?

Due to Covid-19, probably, everyone got familiar with how QR codes work in the restaurants and bars to lessen human interaction. As soon as we saw it being accepted by the public we thought why should the vending industry be worse. Being fair we have been long discussing this idea internally but it did take us some time to find a quick and easy implementation that would be user-friendly.

How will the QR code system work in all the Jar Healthy Vending machines?

Healthy Vending Machines in London, UK

Smart and simple! Your next lunch will be available to you in just four easy steps with our machines:

  1. Open the camera on your phone and scan the QR code shown on the main screen of our machine

  2. Select all the products from the machine’s menu on your smartphone and press "pay"

  3. Come to the machine and pay contactless with your card, Apple or Android Pay

  4. Take your favorite snacks and drinks from the machine

What is the main safety benefit of the new QR code system?

Surely, the main benefit of this new system is minimizing physical interaction with the machines. We know how much customers love our large bright touch screens on the machines, but we also know is that now everyone prefers to stay safe and avoid touching things in common spaces. The main aim of our company is to deliver great customer service no matter the circumstances.

When will the new QR code system launch?

We are still working on the final touches to the system which will make your customer journey safe and sound. Though we can already promise that as soon as it’s ready we will implement the system not to only new machines but to all the old ones as well. Thus, we make sure to care equally about our new and old customers.

How do you ensure the safety of the jar machines before the new QR code system?

Even without the QR code system, we can guarantee that the Jar team makes everything possible to ensure you get your beloved healthy nibbles in the safest way. We sanitize our machines regularly to get rid of any unwanted bacteria. We are also happy to come and sanitize it on demand when our customers feel they need it the most.

Let us know what you think about the new QR code system of the Jar Healthy Vending and please stay safe!

Your Jar Team
