A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11928911B2) discloses a remote beverage dispensing system designed to efficiently fill multiple orders with various beverage selections. The system includes a point-of-sale device that receives orders and a beverage dispenser located remotely from the point-of-sale device to fulfill these orders. The beverage dispenser features an interface with a point-of-sale order queue screen that displays the separate beverage selections grouped together in each order. This screen also indicates when the selections in each order are filled, with order identifiers organizing the beverages. Additionally, the beverage dispenser includes a manual selection screen for user interaction.

Furthermore, the patent details a system where multiple point-of-sale devices are connected to one or more beverage dispensers through two-way communication.

The interface of the beverage dispenser includes a point-of-sale order queue screen and various beverage icons to facilitate the filling of orders efficiently.
