How it works

The Compagnon du Boulanger ® is a baguette vending machine. It is stocked every day with dough made by a local baker. The baguettes are stored in a fridge. They are then moved towards the oven to be baked and finally stored in a temperate compartment ready to be dispensed there and then, fresh and crusty, and the same quality as those from the bakery.

The Compagnon du Boulanger ® is composed of:

  • An oven with a capacity of 6 baguettes guaranteeing the quality of the baking of the traditional product
  • A ventilated cold compartment for storing and preserving between 80 to 240 baguettes

  • A payment system for paying with coins, pre-paid cards depicting the bakery and by credit card (optional).
  • A programmable logic controller for remote monitoring
    • Programmable baking parameters (time and temperature)
