Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013 - Jenny Craig, one of the world’s leading authorities on weight management, has opted to have Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. (OTC Markets: GEEM) machines installed at its Carlsbad, California headquarters. Because the Jenny Craig brand is renowned for helping program participants lead healthier lifestyles, the machines of Fresh Healthy Vending (also a San Diego-based company) are well suited for the facilities of this international weight loss brand.
Both companies are ambassadors of healthy living, believing that portion control and a balanced approach to living are keys to a healthy lifestyle. Fresh Healthy Vending provides sensible portions of nutritious snacks and beverages through a convenient vending machine, perfect for the active and on-the-go lifestyles of Jenny Craig employees and customers.
“Partnering with Jenny Craig is a perfect fit,” said Nick Yates, VP of Corporate Operations at Fresh Healthy Vending. “With over 6,000 natural, organic and healthy snacks and beverages to choose from, we provide options that align well with the healthy lifestyles of Jenny Craig customers and employees. Since the machines were installed, we've seen a positive response to the program and it complements our newly formed Corporate Owned Operating division perfectly.”
Fresh Healthy Vendingoffers the opportunity for locations to individually choose the many products featured in their machines. A sampling event gives facility employees the chance to decide which products they would like to be able to access. “Just last week, we held a sampling event party at Jenny Craig for employees to submit their special product requests,” Yates said. “An event like this allows us to fill the machines with items that the employees love, which leads to healthier employees and increased productivity at work. Business owners and corporate wellness managers love the program.”
Carly Forster, product development assistant at Fresh Healthy Vending, attended the sampling event. "The event was a huge success," said Forster. "We had a great turnout and the enthusiastic response to our products was overwhelming."
During the sampling event, popular requests from the Jenny Craig employees included Stacy's Pita Chips, Pirate's Booty Popcorn, Kind Bar Almond Coconut, San Pellegrino Blood Orange Drinks and Steaz Iced Tea. Categories of snacks offered also include baked chips, fresh fruit, granola bars, yogurts and smoothies.
Fresh Healthy Vending placed one vending machines in the corporate office cafeteria and one in the adjacent call center building. "With varying call center shift times and limited cafeteria service times, the convenience of having healthy snack options in their own building was eagerly welcomed and appreciated," said Diane Bailey, wellness advocate at Fresh Healthy Vending.
