Innovative Retail Solutions Call For Innovative Packaging Solutions

April 10, 2012


It’s pretty sweet that you can just waltz up to one of the plentiful ATMs found basically on every other block in busy parts of any city and oh-so-conveniently pull money from your bank account. Just like that. But even sweeter? In some locations, you’ll soon be able to actually pull tasty, saccharine treats from a cupcake ATM. Seriously.
As it turns out, Beverly Hills-based Sprinkles cupcakes opened its first ATM in that city on March 9, and the bakery’s got plans to have ten up and running by the end of the summer. The appeal of the machine is that with just the swipe of a debit card, those seeking a sugary pick-me-up have access to cupcakes from Sprinkles 24 hours a day. Cupcake flavors will be rotated regularly, and each machine will be able to hold up to 600 at a time.

Innovative, right?

These days, companies are not only selling their products in brick-and-mortar stores — they’re also selling their wares from online shops, from pop-up stores and food trucks, and in many other creative ways. And when retailers sell their products in innovative ways, they need packaging that’s equally innovative to match.

Oh, and if you want us to do something normal with boxes, we can always do that, too.
