DENVER, Colo., Feb. 20, 2023 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — It’s President’s Day. And the Kiosk Manufacturer Association news centers around dispensing machines/kiosks and in particular legal cannabis and naloxone. Terrapin just deployed some extraordinary robotics for “bagging” and delivering marijuana here in Colorado. See the intro video in the post. Facial recognition, 1100 products, big touchscreen and the users get to watch thru a glass panel. We have a nice video demonstrating that. In the naloxone news: last year (and year before) there were zero dollars budgeted by state, local and federal agencies for kiosks that dispense naloxone and also fentanyl detection strips. So far in 2023? Almost $500M.

Featured Sponsor this month is Panasonic. We published a case study on Wendy’s recent POS upgrade. Along with that we also included drive-thru headsets, drive-thru whitepaper and menu boards. Of note in the Shake Shack news the big phrase over and over is “drive thru.” We see where Wendy’s teamed up with Doordash & Roku to let users order from their TV [link to story]. We need to get an update on the facial ordering that Wendy’s Japan deployed.
