Rheavendors Servomat, FreshFood24 and Miluxor have partnered to collectively develop a new automated canteen solution for workplaces called MrLunch.
Rheavendors Servomat is the German branch of Italian vending firm Rhea Vendors Group, while FreshFood24 manages catering services for businesses and Miluxor is a German coffee producer.
Intended to be open 24-hours a day, MrLunch features fresh meals that have been prepared by FreshFood24, which are then stocked in Rhea vending machines that can also dispense Miluxor coffee, beverages and snacks to create a ‘complete menu’ for workplaces.
According to a joint statement from the companies, the MrLunch solution aims to provide a fully-automated canteen and catering service that meets the post-pandemic requirements of businesses, such as varied working patterns and a mixture of home and office work, that could make traditional office canteens less cost-effective.
Florjan Kamberi, managing director of FreshFood24, said: “The classic “nine-to-five” job no longer exists and the closure or limited accessibility of bars and restaurants in the vicinity of offices makes it more difficult to meet the lunch break needs of workers.
“For this reason, we have come up with MrLunch, an automated, unstaffed canteen that can be designed in a modular way to meet the various needs of companies of all sizes.”
Sven Kliebisch, general manager of Rheavendors Servomat, added: “We are really pleased to have been chosen by FreshFood24 for this innovative project and to have worked, also together with Miluxor, on the creation of a solution that guarantees the highest possible levels of food and beverage product quality.
“MrLunch is an example of how automation can bring innovations to the catering world, guaranteeing the same quality as an onsite kitchen while, at the same time, meeting new company food consumption requirements. Thanks to their close focus on design and the customisation opportunities they offer, our machines can be developed on the basis of the needs of every single client.”
