AVT Brings Burrito Box to Life

Innovative kiosk called "The next Redbox" captures nationwide interest, and a slice of the $160 billion fast food market

CORONA, Calif., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in custom vending machines, automated retailing business opportunities, and self-service kiosks, announced that they have designed a new machine named "Burrito Box" for their client, and it has garnered massive media attention and social followings, including articles in People Magazine, the New York Daily News and the Los Angeles Times; and has been featured on ABC News, CBS News, Good Morning America, the Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Even Ashton Kutcher has tweeted about this amazing system.

"It's like Redbox, with burritos," according to the Los Angeles Times.

The world's first burrito kiosk distributes 100% natural burritos, with no hormones or antibiotics, and cage-free eggs, plus fresh guacamole and sour cream as sides. The machine also features free Wi-Fi.

"We are pleased to have been a part of the massive attention that this machine has generated, but we are more thrilled to have helped bring this creative idea to life," said Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT, Inc.

Entrepreneur Denis Koci, the owner of Burrito Box, is passionate about his new business. He saw a need for high quality food and healthy options for today's on the-go lifestyles. He turned to AVT to help turn his vision into reality.

"This is the real American dream," Illingworth commented.  "To believe in creating something that has never been done before, and have the courage of your convictions," he added. "That is what made this country great."

In the U.S. alone there are over 200,000 "fast food" locations. Revenue has grown from $6 billion in 1970 to $160 billion last year, an 8.6% annualized rate.

The first Burrito Box has attracted hundreds of customers within its first few hours of operation, and word of the great tasting food from a self-service kiosk is spreading like wildfire.

SB Nation, the fastest-growing online sports media brand, noted that the Burrito Box is "Your new reason for living."

Trendhunter.com probably summed it up best when they said, "I believe it can be said that that the Burrito Box–a vending machine that serves piping hot burritos–is probably America's greatest accomplishment since landing a man on the Moon."

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure.
