NBC: Muslim Brothers start “Online Vending Machine”

Online Vending Machine Solves Thinness Problem

The office snack machine is broken, and your magical kicks just aren’t bringing it back to life this time. Or maybe those plain M&Ms are always gone the exact moment you want them, leaving you stuck with those blasted peanut ones.

If only someone could have just delivered exactly what you wanted straight to your door. But wait!

Fortunately, the Yousuf brothers of Loudoun County, Va., offer a satisfying solution — as long as you can think ahead. The brothers have launched an online vending machine.

Their website, Snack&Munch, gives snack cravers the ability to create “snackpacks” of any 24 snacks ($24) from a selection of 250-plus. Customers can choose to make a one-time purchase or set up a recurring monthly plan.

The snackpack ships immediately after purchase, with continual snackpacks (if wanted) shipping every 30 days thereafter. The service is available nationwide.

“We wanted to make snacking easier for people,”said Snack&Munch cofounder Farooq Yousuf. He and his brother Ammar founded the idea only four weeks ago.

Thanks to them, our sweettooths (sweetteeth?) are satisfied… for now. Let’s get them working on an immediate snack digital download, though.
