The company announced a new vending initiative this week called "Hello Goodness." The revamped machines will have climate control capabilities that allow for perishable and non-perishable items to be shelved together.
Federally mandated standards for schools, hospitals and government buildings have spurred some of the greatest losses for vending machine operators recently.
But with the industry's revenue this year still expected to be above $7 billion, it's likely worth Pepsi's time to try to carve out a niche.
