Azkoyen achieves big success in EU’Vend 2013

The ‘15 points to boost operators’ income’ caught the attention of hundreds of visitors at the three-day EU’Vend 2013 event held in Cologne, Germany. EU’Vend is a leading trade show for the vending industry in Central Europe that attracts trade members from emerging markets in Eastern Europe.

‘Azkoyen’s bet on EU’Vend 2013 was very important. We began announcing the fair on our site in June, and dozens of companies interested in attending it and learning about our new products and services contacted us,’ says Azkoyen Vending Systems Marketing Manager Eduardo Andueza. ‘Our stand welcomed more visitors than in previous editions, and they were really interested in our news, which to us was quite motivating. No doubt we’re on the right track, and European operators acknowledged this fact.’

New Azkoyen Barista V20 14g coffee group

Azkoyen had announced 15 points to increase operators’ income, and at EU’Vend 2013, we got to know what those interesting 15 points were. The most outstanding news, especially because it adapts perfectly to the Central European markets, is the release of the new Azkoyen Barista V20 espresso group, with 14g coffee capacity, which allows for long services with genuine full espresso flavours like those you can find in any coffee shop in the style so popular in Anglo-Saxon countries. The coffee group is available in the Vitro model and is coming soon in more Azkoyen models.

EU’Vend 2013 was a showcase for the new Zen and Zensia hot drink vending machines, whose design and functions are similar. They come in table-top and free-standing units that replace the renowned Tempo and Sienna systems, successfully supplied by Azkoyen for more than five years. These new ranges stand out for their innovative customisable design, increased autonomy, courtesy of the optimised hoppers, and the new Customixer and Extra-shot functions. With these exclusive configurations you can choose how much sugar, coffee or milk you want in your cup, which increases customer satisfaction and average profit margins.

New Zen and Zensia ranges

Azkoyen’s bet on design and innovation is pretty clear in the new Zen and Zensia hot drink machines. They come in table-top and free-standing units and were exhibited for the first time at EU’Vend 2013, where buyers were able to see how they are used and find the new Customixer and Extra-shot functions, which help raise average profit margin per service while offering a value-added service to end-users. With the new functions, drinks can be personalised as in coffee shops.
