Coca-Cola tapped two Seattle-area tech companies for help developing its “Freestyle” fountain system that dispenses 106 different drinks.
Software from Bellevue’s Bsquare was used to develop the computerized machine, which also uses RFID chips from Fremont’s Impinj to manage its ingredient supplies.
Now, two years after the system debuted, it’s finally arriving in the Northwest. It’s going into service March 9 at the Taco Time on Elliott Avenue West. Other Taco Times will be setting up Freestyle machines later in the month.
That will give Warren Buffett, pictured in this photo from Coke’s Freestyle Facebook page, plenty of options if he gets thirsty while visiting the Gates Foundation.
