Sheehan Brothers Vending, a pioneer in automated food-service merchandising has announced its selection of Mvix digital signage systems for its new, innovative service called Micromarkets (aka Contemporary Cafes). As a part of this service, Sheehan will equip these on-site markets with state-of-the art, cloud-based digital menu boards provided by Mvix.
Founded in 1956, Sheehan Brothers Vending is a family-owned, full line vending service that operates vending machines, commissaries, and cafes in businesses, schools, hospitals, government offices, recreation facilities, factory floors, and executive board rooms. With the inception of its new service called Micromarkets, Sheehan Brothers Vending is establishing small, convenience store like open markets where customers can make purchases using a self-checkout kiosk at offices and work-sites. These custom-designed, unattended, 24/7 micro convenience stores carry several hundred fresh-food items for office employees and the workforce.
“We decided to add the media boards and your software into our markets because we wanted to promote our specials we run in the market each week to our customers. Instead of printing out signs for each market every week that no one would really look at we decided we wanted to go digital. It falls right in line with what the contemporary cafes are all about. It gave our cafes a more contemporary look and saved us time and money printing out and posting signage,” said Patrick Sheehan at Sheehan Vending.
As a part of this new service, Mvix’s digital signage systems equipped with large display screens are being installed in these contemporary cafes to display menu information, fun facts, weather and other trivia. “We are delighted to be a part of this new venture,” said A. Jay, Director of Business Relations at Mvix. “Sheehan Brothers Vending is a reputed name and an established institution in the vending industry. We are humbled to hear this news.”
“We compared Mvix with some other digital signage solutions and really no one else had what we were looking for that could beat the price,” remarked Patrick. The digital signage systems were evaluated at the corporate warehouse for multiple weeks before this decision was made. “We are very satisfied with the overall solution and found it to be very user-friendly. The technical support has been remarkable and quick. The system has been really great so far and has exceeded all our expectations,” commented Patrick.
Mvix, based in Sterling, Virginia, was founded in 2005 and has become one of the industry leaders in the field of cloud-based digital signage and menu board solutions.

Jay. “The affordable cost structure and intuitive, hassle-free content management system is the core of Mvix platform and our clients appreciate that.”
