Generation Next Franchise Brands Hosts an Invitation-Only Event to Unveil the Company’s New Generation of Vending Robots.


SAN DIEGO, CA , April 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis & Irvy’s, Inc., a subsidiary franchise concept of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCB: VEND), hosted a Discovery Day for its franchisees, national retail and restaurant chains, prospective investors and shareholders to view the unveiling of the world’s only frozen yogurt vending robot.

Discovery Day 2018 took place at the Flex manufacturing facility in Columbia, South Carolina. Kicking off the day was presentations by key executives from Reis & Irvy’s, Flex, Stoelting Food Service, Hartfield, Re Think Motion and Dannon YoCream.

Reis & Irvy’s Chairman, Nicholas Yates, along with Sr. Director of Business Development for Flex, Lejon Aldenbrown, and Nico De Valencia from Dannon YoCream, provided a welcome keynote speech along with an overview of the frozen yogurt vending robot concept, an update on manufacturing progress and a layout of the day’s events. Over 125 attendees from across the country were treated to a tour of the Flex manufacturing plant and a live demonstration of the newly updated Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robot.  

This event marks the first time that the newly-engineered and redesigned technology was to be unveiled, giving the guests an opportunity to interact, enjoy and operate the machine. Flex Ltd., known for building and distributing the popular Redbox movie rental kiosks across the country, has an impressive and dedicated development and operations team that is focused solely on perfecting the Reis & Irvy’s vending robots.
While some of the audience toured the massive Flex facility, other guests had the opportunity to taste the delicious Dannon frozen treats that makes Reis & Irvy’s a hit, topped off with a personal introduction to the special guest of the day, the all-new Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robot.

Discovery Day attendees included new franchisees Ken and Nancy Karasick from Flint, Michigan who plan on installing the Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots in movie theaters secured on their behalf as part of the franchise contract, with future plans to branch out into Florida and beyond. This entrepreneurial couple are thrilled to be a part of the action.  “We are really excited to experience such an original, innovative product,” said Ken Karasick. “The improvements to the unit are just phenomenal and definitely worth the wait – we are excited to become ambassadors of the Reis and Irvy’s brand,” he added.

“Seeing the reaction from our guests was truly remarkable,” said Yates. “Watching full-grown adults get excited like kids in a candy store with smiles from ear-to-ear over frozen yogurt served by a robot validates why we decided to engineer and develop this product from scratch. It was worth the wait that’s for sure.”
