Industry-leading Stoelting will provide a customized, US-manufactured soft serve hardware solution, supported by a nationwide network of technicians 

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCB: VEND) announced today that it entered into a supply agreement with Wisconsin-based manufacturing company Stoelting Foodservice (a division of the Vollrath Company, LLC) in which Stoelting will provide premium soft serve technology and a national service network to Generation NEXT’s flagship franchise concept, Reis & Irvy’s. 

The Reis & Irvy’s automated robotic vending machines serve customers seven different flavors of frozen yogurt with a selection of six custom toppings, all at the point of sale and within 60 seconds. The patented technology will soon be installed in thousands of high foot traffic locations across the US, Canada, Israel, and Oman. 

Generation NEXT, which recently announced a partnership agreement with Dannon YoCream™, an exclusive manufacturing partnership with Flex, Ltd., and a partnership with Pitney Bowes for logistics, now adds Stoelting to the foundations behind its revolutionary robotic vending technology. Highlights of the agreement with Stoelting Foodservice are: 

  • All customized soft serve units will be manufactured in the United States. 
  • Each robotic unit will be provided to Reis & Irvy’s franchisees with the full support of the Stoelting National Service Network. 
  • All customized soft serve units will come with a 5-year parts warranty, as well as 2-year field warranty that includes on-site labor. 
  • All Froyo Robots will feature a 12-gallon hopper unit, allowing for 200+ servings. 
  • All units will be shipped to franchisees stamped by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and the National Automated Merchandising Association (NAMA). 
  • Stoelting will provide Hydra Rinse, which uses proprietary technology to standardize the cleaning and sanitizing process. The Hydra Rinse system reduces water consumption by 50% and is environmentally friendly, reducing cleaning time by more than 50%. 

“When it comes to soft serve, Stoelting has been the constant industry leader. In 1939, their engineering team manufactured the first ever soft serve dispenser for the Home-Made Ice Cream Company (eventually becoming Dairy Queen) thus pioneering a new market and captivating consumers throughout the U.S.,” said Nick Yates, Founder of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands. “Stoelting sees Reis & Irvy’s as the next captivating evolution in soft serve distribution, and we see a lot of long-term value in this partnership.” 

Stoelting Foodservice, a global manufacturer of frozen dessert equipment, shares in the excitement; “This partnership enhances the already developed technology of the Reis & Irvy's Froyo Vending Robot so that full-scale production with Flex Ltd. can begin early 2018,” said Rich Koehl, Executive Vice President, General Manager for Stoelting Foodservice. “We recognize that dependable and reliable soft serve equipment is an essential element to any successful vending kiosk project and we are excited to be a part of the evolution of this particular technology along with producing the creamiest soft serve for Reis & Irvy's customers who demand the best tasting frozen treats.”
