Generation Next Franchise Brands is introducing a pilot with The Kroger Co.’s Atlanta Division for its Print Mates digital photo printing kiosks. The pilot phase will measure consumer engagement and response to the Print Mates kiosks, which are designed to “reinvent” the photo printing experience.
Print Mates’ easy-to-use, touchscreen kiosks allow customers to print high-quality photos directly from their smartphones or from social media and cloud storage accounts. They also can order other photo products, décor and gifts ranging from fridge magnets, frames and posters, to jumbo-sized prints, canvases and wood prints. All products are shipped to their homes in as little as one day.
Print Mates unattended kiosks will launch at the Kroger stores at 2452 Morosgo Way, Atlanta; 5550 Bethelview Road, Cumming; 6001 Cumming Highway, Buford; 2875 N. Decatur Road, Decatur; and 800 Glenwood Avenue SE, Atlanta.
“At Generation Next, we’re committed to bringing consumers the next level of convenience through innovation, and we’re thrilled to pilot our latest innovative solutions, Print Mates kiosks at supermarket titan Kroger,” said Nick Yates, CEO of Generation Next. “Kroger is the epitome of in-store innovation and technology, and we are honored they recognize our new approach to photography development as something their customers will benefit from.”
“Kroger is always looking for ways to offer our shoppers more from our stores. We are a company that embraces technology that empowers our customers and provides them with amazing in-store experiences. We are eager and optimistic to see how Print Mates performs in our Kroger store locations,” said Felix Turner, corporate affairs manager for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.
