Marley Coffee automated stores launched at prominent Marine Base

Published 28 May 2014

AVT, a leader in the design and development of custom vending machines, kiosks and automated retailing units, announced today that they have placed their Marley Coffee Automated Store Kiosks inside the US Marine Base in Quantico, Virginia.

Marley Coffee Automated Stores recently signed an agreement with Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) to install the kiosks.The innovative self-serve kiosks freshly grind premium Marley whole bean coffee to create a fast, gourmet coffee experience, with barista-class espresso style hot beverages.

Two kiosks were launched at the base in Quantico last month. Since their installation, each kiosk has generated robust sales that are exceeding expectations. Just days after the initial installation, MCCS placed an order for additional kiosks at the base.

"We are happy with the performance of these kiosks, and enthusiastic about the sales potential though this new military channel," said Ron Miceli, National Director of Business Development for Marley Coffee Automated Stores.

Earlier this year, Marley Coffee Automated Stores was awarded the contract for automated vended coffee at the Quantico Marine Base. These kiosks are owned and operated by the newly established Automated Retail Income Development (ARID).

"Partnering with the Marine Corps on this venture is a tremendous opportunity and a privilege," said Joe Menichiello, Vice President of Marley Coffee Automated Stores.

Marley Coffee Automated Stores is working in conjunction with Black Tie Services in Baltimore, Maryland for the kiosk service management. "Black Tie Services is doing an amazing job with the fulfillment of our kiosks," Miceli said. "They see the big picture with our automated kiosks and want to grow with us in this market region."
