TFS launches Vending Man & range of Summer Coolers at Mumbai airports

Our Bureau, Mumbai
Travel Food Services (TFS), India’s leading travel food and retail company, has launched Vending Man, a new concept at Terminals 1B and 1C of Mumbai’s domestic airport. It has also unveiled Summer Coolers Fiesta, a range of 42 special beverages, to Terminals 1 and 2 of Mumbai Airport.

Vending Man
Reasonably priced, these vending men will offer a range of ready-to-eat and drink options with instant billing at the gate. Inspired by food@gate, another successful concept by the company, Vending Man has been conceptualised to cater to last-minute requirements with its neatly-packaged Grab and Go options.

These vending men are a boon, especially to last minute arrivals and passengers on a busy schedule, who do not have the time to spend at the various outlets. By offering quick and easy access to hot and fresh food, the move promotes the ‘grab and go’ concept for passengers on a busy schedule.

A typical Vending Man would carry a mobile tray with a limited range of best-selling products, and will keep moving at the gates. The tray will be equipped with a tab and a Bluetooth printer for instant billing and invoicing. The inaugural menu consists of summer cooler drinks, and will soon add munchies and quick bites as well.

Gaurav Dewan, chief operating officer and business head, TFS, said, “We, at Travel Food Services, are committed to constantly elevating the travel food and beverage (FnB) experience in India, and Vending Man is an extension of the same.”

“Considering the volume of travellers and the rush at terminal gates daily, we wanted to create an option for busy passengers to have easy access to quality, freshly packaged, to-go food products. While we are currently testing with two vending men, we plan to increase the number to cater to all kinds of F&B needs of travellers,” he added.

Along with the food and beverage products on offer, a Vending Man will also carry other items like tissues, condiments, and straws. You can find these vending men roaming the gates between 8am and 10pm daily. Currently available at Mumbai Airport, it is expected to soon expand to other cities across India as well.

Summer Coolers Fiesta
Passengers travelling until May 30, 2018 can visit TFS’ lounges and outlets for Summer Coolers, which are available 24x7 and priced from Rs 60 onwards.

The lounges and bars will offer a vast variety of special cocktails and mocktails, in addition to do-it-yourself (DIY) Classic or Melon Sangria.

The food courts will have a special menu, where you can choose from delicious drinks, including lassi, chaas, coolers, shakes, frappes, fresh juices, iced teas, lemonades, smoothies and special faloodas.
