The hottest butcher in Wisconsin is willing to sell products day or night, takes cash or credit and is never closed during holidays. It’s so popular that people stop in to take selfies while picking up their bratwurst, burger patties or cheese curds. Meet “Regi,” the new meat vending machine installed at RJ’s Meats in Hudson, Wis.
While vending machines in the United States mostly serve sodas and candy bars, German butcher shops have been utilizing them to sell sausages and other products for some time. Rick Reams, owner of RJ’s Meats, first learned about them at the IFFA Show in Frankfurt four years ago, but the manufacturer was not selling them in the United States yet. He renewed his interest at least year’s show and even got to see one in action by visiting a butcher shop in Bavaria.
