Coffee meets bagel meets… put your cash in the box?

If you’ve hopped a flight at the Boise Airport recently, you might have noticed the self-serve coffee and bagel carts.  Grab some joe and a roll and drop your cash in a box and off you go.

It turns out the kiosks are a way to help cut down lines in the morning.

“The Boise Airport and Delaware North worked together to offer a coffee and bagel honor system in the Boise Airport,” Boise Airport Marketing Manager Sean Briggs said. “The station is set up during peak times during morning travel as a way to alleviate pressure on the line, and create a grab and go option for travelers who want drip coffee and a plain bagel.”

You might wonder if folks would be tempted to swipe free product – but Briggs said that hasn’t been a problem.

“This is something that has been in place for nearly two years and has worked well. The airport and Delaware North has not experienced issues with theft.”

There are two grab-and-go stations – one near Einstein Bros. Bagels and another by River City Coffee & Cafe.
