We wanted to take a moment and share a video clip from the National Automatic Merchandising Association's National Operator of the Year Award Ceremony. Our founders, Scott Halloran and Michael Calkins, accepted this honor at the annual NAMA conference in Chicago last month. Thank you once again to all of our employees at Trolley Hospitality who continue to work hard to make prestigeous awards such as this possible. This award paired with being recognized as one of Virginia's Top Workplaces demonstrates just how amazing our employees make us.

What is a Micro-Market? A micro-market is best described as a mini-convenience store located right in your office. Markets turn the ordinary breakroom into a collaborative space where employees will find a variety of beverages, healthy & fresh meals, snacks, candy, pastries, and more.

It was an honor to have Taylor Keeney, the Republican nominee for Virginia's Seventh Congressional District, visit our headquarters today. She took time to meet with our leaders, Michael Calkins & Scott Halloran, to learn more about what we do, and how as a small business in Virginia we were able to raise all of our employees to $15 an hour.

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
This one really cracked us up! Sorry, we couldn't resist! The Glaum Egg Ranch in Aptos, California, is a farm with dancing animatronic chickens. Yup, they have dancing robot chickens. With four crisp dollars, you'll get 22 fresh eggs and a two-minute show featuring singing, gyrating robot chickens. Farm owner's wife changes chicken outfits frequently so you can always get a farm fresh show! It sounds like an egg-cellent time every time!

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
As customers avoided stores out of fear due to the pandemic last year, Svea Marx feared her butcher shop would lose business. She ordered a vending machine so shoppers can choose their meats, pay with a card or cash, and retrieve their meat after it drops into a bin without queuing inside or interacting with a salesperson. “People no longer wanted to shop in crowded places,” says Marx, whose family has operated the outlet in Woltersdorf, a village of 300 an hour away from Hamburg, for more than three decades. Now her Coronavirus rescue is becoming a vital part of her business. Stores in Germany are required to close on Sundays and public holidays, but vending machines have no such restrictions, resulting in increased sales when the store is closed.

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
The self-proclaimed Most Unusual Vending Machine in the World has been built as a promotion for the launch of the book Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer's Guide! In one easy-to-use vending machine, you can find everything from taste-bud-bending miracle berries to color-changing powders. In New York, the Gastro Obscura vending machine will be at FREEHOLD In The Park's Union Square location on Thursday, October 14th before touring the country. You will not find anything like this in our machines and micro markets - just the freshest in the business.

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
Did you know there was a coin shortage in America? American citizens have been encouraged to replace their old coins with new ones by the U.S. Mint in a PSA. While so many of us in our nation now use electronic transactions, so many more still do not. The US has approximately $48.5 billion in coins already in circulation, much of which is lying dormant inside 128 million households. The return of coins to circulation through vending machines will make a significant difference for millions of Americans and businesses who use coins to conduct cash transactions. You could make a difference today by digging through your sock drawer for some old change so that you can treat yourself at a Trolley House Vending Machine!

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
Take a moment to imagine that you just won the lottery! What's the first thing you should buy? Of course, nothing would be more bourgeois than a Moet & Chandon vending machine! Individually crafted with your name. It will only set you back $35K plus another $3500-5000 to pack it up with mini bottles of champagne. There is no denying that it is a bit expensive, but it's only 250 bucks to ship it, but remember you just won the lottery.

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
Maybe not as fun as usual, but definitely dropping some knowledge!
Whether you're standing at the vending machine or shopping at your local grocery store, you've probably noticed that some of your favorite items are missing. As you may have heard, a global supply chain issue is currently taking place which is hitting the food and beverage industry particularly hard. From how food and beverage manufacturers get raw materials, to how these items are packaged, to how they are delivered, these issues have impacted every aspect of the industry. As a result, we are ordering from multiple vendors in order to increase our internal inventory. Frequently, the additional inventory we need is not available, and the inventory we have been out of cannot be replaced. You can rest assured that we are looking into every possible avenue to obtain products as quickly as we possibly can.
We hope you find this useful and understand why the next time you can't find that much needed 3:30 in the afternoon favorite soda!

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
Dough know how we feel about this one, but I guess our neighbors up north are rolling out Piestro! You probably already heard of Sally the robotic salad maker and Flippy the burger flipping robot, but Piestro, the self-serve robotic pizza machine, goes one step further by letting customers pay with their faces or order via an app. A total of 500 Piestro machines will be available to Fast Fired franchisees across Canada, as the company expands its market presence. Does that sound like a little slice of heaven to you, or is it more like pie in the sky?

Thursday Fun Vending Fact!
It's HOT but we think this is pretty cool! Vending machines first appeared in the 1930s which sold soda on ice in a cup, but before World War II they were replaced with machines powered by electricity to keep drinks cold. Tens of thousands of bottled soft drink machines were ubiquitous in grocery stores, service stations, and other locations by 1942. Today a variety of cold drinks are available in vending machines worldwide to help quench your thirst. Stay cool friends!

Thursday Vending Fact!
In 2016, 8 vending machines in Grenoble, France, distributed short stories. Customers insert their Euros and choose 1, 3 or 5 - which means stories take 1, 3 or 5 minutes to read. These stories are drawn from an extensive database of more than 5000 entries submitted by anonymous authors. Bibliophiles in France were so happy with the machines that they are now spreading the scheme nationwide as well as internationally: A similar machine is already in operation in San Francisco.
Trolley House isn't selling short stories (yet), but we'd love to hear your story! Contact us today for help with any workplace coffee, vending, or micro market needs.

Thursday Vending Fact!

Did you know that Wrigley's was originally a soap company that provided free baking powder with every soap purchase. Baking powder was more popular than soap, so they switched to selling it with chewing gum as a gift. It is no surprise that the gum was more popular than the baking powder, so Wrigley's switched to selling the gum. Chew on that little bit of knowledge!
