DURHAM, NC. – Muncie, Ind.-based Munsee Meats has launched a new service for consumers looking to buy foodservice quality meats and locally sourced goods in a safe and secure environment. In partnership with QuickCollect Solutions, powered by Bell and Howell, a leading provider of automated grocery pickup solutions, Munsee Meats is offering local customers the Automated Farmers Market for orders placed through the company’s website.
Online customers can place an order on MunseeMeats.com and have their order filled and stocked in the Automated Farmers Market, a modular system of self-serve temperature-controlled lockers. Once customers place an order, they will receive a confirmation QR code that their order is ready for pickup. When a customer arrives at the lockers, they simply scan the QR code and retrieve their order from the The QuickCollect GL self-serve lockers.
Munsee Meats partners with local farmers to deliver premium meats and locally sourced goods to foodservice customers in East Central Indiana, including Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne and the areas between. The company is using the locker concept to expand its selection of meats and goods to retail customers.
“We are always looking for unique ways to grow, especially our e-Commerce efforts,” said Jason Mauck, chief executive officer of Munsee Meats. “The QuickCollect GL is a unique locker solution that helps us offer the safest and quickest method for families to get the highest quality meats, meals, and local goods. It also enables us to scale our reach very quickly and cost-effectively. We are revolutionizing the way people interact with their local farmers and businesses.”
The QuickCollect GL, part of the QuickCollect Solutions portfolio of automated pickup solutions offered by Bell and Howell, features a modular, temperature-controlled locker engineered for indoor and outdoor installations. Each column can be remotely adjusted to be any temperature, from frozen to heated, to meet any specific storage temperature requirements. The lockers will be available first in select locations in the Muncie area, with rapid expansion plans in the works.
“We are proud to partner with an innovator like Munsee Meats,” said Joe Zuech, vice president of Online Grocery Solutions. “With our temperature-controlled grocery lockers, Munsee Meats can now deliver an easy, convenient order pickup option that their customers will love. We are excited to partner with them on this journey.”
