The 'automatiek' is a typical Dutch vending machine.

FEBO (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈfeːboː]) is a chain of Dutch walk-up fast food restaurants of the automatiek type. Founded in 1941 in Amsterdam, FEBO is most notable for this automatic format: a counter is available for purchasing French fries, beverages, and hamburgers. Other FEBO snacks can be bought from the automats. The primary automat-vended items are krokets, frikandellen, hamburgers, Kaassoufflés and similar items.

The FEBO motto De Lekkerste (Dutch, pronounced [də ˈlɛkərstə]) is translated as "The Tastiest".

According to the company website, FEBO has almost 60 shops all over the Netherlands, with 54 being franchises.[1] There are 22 shops in Amsterdam alone.

FEBO was originally a bakery named "Maison FEBO" after Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam, founded by Johan de Borst (1919-2008). While the concept changed, the name was shortened to just "FEBO".
