San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2013 - Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc.(OTC Markets: VEND), North America's leading healthy vending franchisor, announced the opening of its first satellite office in Rockville, Md., a suburb of Washington D.C. The establishment of an East Coast office will allow Fresh Healthy Vending to increase face-to-face franchise sales and its local presence in markets including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C, Raleigh, Atlanta and Miami.
Headed by Sr. Director of Franchise Development Aaron Goldberg, the new location will be staffed with East Coast-based franchise development representatives and territory managers, giving potential franchisees the opportunity to visit the office, meet with representatives and see and use the machines, all prior to becoming a franchisee.
Goldberg brings extensive knowledge of the industry and market to the Fresh Healthy Vending team with past franchise and sales development experience for AT&T Wireless, Pizza Hut, T-Mobile and Boardwalk Fries.
"It is with great pleasure that I join the Fresh Healthy Vending family and establish the company’s long-anticipated presence on the East Coast," said Goldberg. "Our mission to provide healthy snacks to our Nation’s youth and public resonates strongly with me as a father, uncle of 13 and active member of my community. I am eager to connect with future Fresh Healthy Vending franchisees in embracing the concept of social entrepreneurship in some of the largest markets in the US."
Fresh Healthy Vending CEO Alex Kennedy noted, "Although our machines are located throughout much of the East Coast already, not having a corporate presence there has made interaction and testing of our machines challenging for interested franchisees. Being on the East Coast will give us the bandwidth and opportunity to maximize our interactions at local discovery days, industry trade shows and franchise seminars, as well as launch some of our own industry events down the line."
Convenience meets health with Fresh Healthy Vending and its pioneered concept of vending machines stocked with tried-and-tested fresh, healthy snack options. The San Diego-based company offers three different types of machines: The Healthy Vending Combo, Healthy Vending Café and the brand new Healthy Vending Touch; the only 46" 3D interactive touch screen vending machine.
Fresh Healthy Vending is an operator and franchisor of healthy vending-related products and services. The company has appointed more than 200 franchisees throughout North America, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas and has granted more than $1 million to businesses and schools in grant funding.
Fresh Healthy Vending International Inc.’s stock is traded through the OTC Markets, Ticker Symbol: VEND.
