Vending Vixon

I’m new at the office, so when I started managing the office, I made a point to ask everyone what their concerns and requests were for improving the office. Almost everyone told me they wanted a vending machine in the office, so I called SF Bay Area Vending and set about making it happen. I wasn’t necessarily doing it to gain favor in the office, but it definitely didn’t hurt.

I started by asking everyone what kinds of snacks they wanted to see in the office and went with the vending machine company that had the most options available. In this case, it was SF Bay Area Vending– they had great snacks and even better customer service.

Another way that I accidentally gained favor in the office was asking my superiors if they would subsidize the snack machines. All that means is that they helped pay for the snacks to make them cheaper for the rest of us. Brilliant!

I’ve now been in the office for over a month and people are still talking about the vending machine addition. Sure, I could have started with other improvements, but let’s just say that I’m pretty happy with how things turned out.

 

Vending Machines in the City

Normally, I don’t writing about San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines, but I had a great experience recently so I don’t feel badly about talking about it here. I try to keep the masses entertained with my pop culture and political banter, but today’s post is all about granola bars. Yes, granola bars.

I’m sure you would assume that because I don’t care what people think of me, that I also don’t care about what I eat. This is not the case. There was a time that I didn’t much pay attention to what I put into my body, but now I enjoy living a robust and full like– I much prefer to fuel myself with high quality energy these days.

So when I quit my retail job in favor of a desk job, I was worried that I would gain weight. It is also part of corporate culture to have a plethora of snack (read: junk) food at your disposal. But I was wrong. At my new job, even the vending machines were full of healthy snack options. I wouldn’t have to worry about making poor choices just out of convenience.

Bay Area Vending was the company they used for vending machine service in San Francisco. They were great because they had so many options for people who didn’t want to be eating Snickers bars all day long. They had healthier chip and nut options as well as granola bars and enhanced water. It was excellent!

Snack Time!

San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines was the perfect solution to our office-wide problem of dangerously low blood sugar during late afternoon brainstorming sessions. Most of us try to pack snacks, but when we can’t get away from the office, it’s a great tool to have a vending machine available.

We found San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines from a Google search and immediately called them because they had a modern website and they seemed to have a wonderful selection of snacks, from candy to granola bars. Our office has pretty diverse tastes, so we really liked how customizable the options were both for snacks and beverages.

One option we really liked was that we could have the office subsidize the snacks and reduce the price—this was definitely a major reason we went with San Francisco Bay Area Vending. We loved that the company could contribute to, for example, healthier snacks, thus promoting healthy eating in the office.

San Francisco Bay Area Vending has really made a difference in how our office operates from day to day. Since most of us are stuck in front of our phones and computers all day, it’s really hard for us to get away to get a reasonable snack. But with the new vending machines, it’s much easier for us to get what we need without disrupting our work.

Vending

I’m in charge of an office in San Francisco and we were in desperate need of some vending machines in the office. Employees needed snacks and beverages available to them and it would keep them from needing to go all the way to a local shop to get these small items. I looked at local San Francisco vending companies and immediately saw San Francisco Bay Area Vending.

Corporate Cuisine has great options and the latest machines. All of their equipment is new and they have healthy snack options. Their prices were competitive and the process of signing up was so easy. They were an easy choice.

I picked what machines we wanted and what we wanted to be provided in them. I was so happy that they had healthy options and I know that will go over well with our employees. They brought the machines into the office and put them right into place and set them all up. They got them stocked and were on their way, it was so easy!

Offering Healthy Options with Vending Machines

Living in the Bay Area, there are many people who are concerned with health. When deciding on options for vending machines I our office, we decided to go with San Francisco Bay Area Vending Machines because of the customization they allow—also because they offer healthy choices for those concerned with that.

The most important function we wanted in a vending machine was customization because we have a variety of clients and employees, all with difference preferences and tastes. We wanted to offer some classic choices as well as healthier options based on the requests of the employees. For example, we offered Coca-Cola products, but we also made sure to add regular water, tea and Propel (an energy drink) to those who don’t drink soda.

As for snack foods, we also wanted to offer candy like Snickers and Milky Way, but made sure to include granola bars and lower fat chip options like Baked Lays and Sun Chips. Because we want to encourage health in the workplace, we want to offer as many healthy choices as possible, but also honor what the employees want too.

One option brought to us by Corporate Cuisine was to subsidize the vending machines that we had. For example, we could offer free snacks from the ending machine, or offer them at discounted rates. This was a great option because we wanted to provide snacks at an affordable price, but didn’t necessarily want to provide free snacks because we imagined that it would need to be refilled much more often than we would like.

We have stayed with Corporate Cuisine for our office vending machines because they offer customization as well as great service. They were completely friendly and gave us excellent service. I wouldn’t go with any other company because of their commitment to customer service and great product. Also, they provide a great array of products that my staff loves.

Great Cafe in the Marina

On my recent trip to the marina district of San Francisco, my girlfriend and I spent the day walking the streets and window shopping. The marina district in San Francisco is perfect for window shopping. There are plenty of great shops, restaurants, bars and beautiful views of the bay.

As we were walking down Chestnut St, we stumbled upon a quant cafe called the Pacific Catch. They specialize is fresh fish from the pacific ocean. What I liked about the restaurant is that the kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant allowing the chefs to cook right in front you.

I ordered the fish tacos and my girlfriend ordered the same. We both loved our dishes and have now found a nice go to cafe that is reasonably priced. Next time I vist the Marina District, I’ll more than likely stop off at the Perfect Catch. For more information on the restaurant, here is their Facebook page.
