At least a handful of wine kiosks will reopen on Tuesday in Pennsylvania. The hi-tech, self serving, dispensing machines were unplugged days before Christmas after widespread malfunctions.
The kiosks, a first of its kind dispensing machine in unveiled in Pennsylvania last summer, have had their share of kinks.
Jim Lesser attributes most if not all of the problems to tens of thousands of faulty resistors. Lesser is the chief executive officer of Simple Brands, the company that distributes the machines under a contract with Pennsylvania’s Liquor Control Board.
A contract that Pennsylvania’s Auditor General is now scrutinizing.
Incoming Governor Tom Corbett intends to sell off state run liquor stores, which would jeopardize the future of kiosks.
However, Lesser said his company is looking to market them to convenience stores throughout the country.
