If you are running a small business you know that one part of the equation is getting your product in front of the customer.
The link provides you with a creative solution being used by one local foods entrepreneur. The business owner didn’t invent anything new but simply took existing technology and put it to use somewhat differently. In this case, the different way was the selling of local meats.
As noted in the article, such machines are, and have been, used in similar ways for a few years. I can remember getting food out of vending machines in college and airports. So why not use it for local foods.

This is just one way that a creative thought can move your company forward. Remember, standing still is not an option.
