May 17, 2011 // Franchising.com // SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – This week is officially known as National Small Business Week, a week dedicated to recognizing the contributions that small businesses make in America. In fact, the U.S. Small Business Administration reports that there are 27.2 million small businesses in this country. In addition, it is estimated that small businesses create 60-80 percent of all new jobs in the nation. Fresh Healthy Vending is one company that has helped many other small business owners see their dream come to fruition.
"We have had a great year and are proud to have contributed to this year's small business growth and added job opportunities," explains Jolly Backer, chief executive officer of Fresh Healthy Vending (www.freshvending.com). "We have made it simple and affordable for people to become their own small business owner through our popular franchising program."
Fresh Healthy Vending entered the scene by offering a new twist on an old concept. They took the traditional vending machine and filled it entirely with healthy foods and drinks. This concept has been popular with those looking to start their own franchise, as well as with consumers who are seeking healthy food options on the run. To date, over 600 Fresh Healthy Vending machines have been established across the country, and the rate shows no signs of slowing.
The vending machines used by Fresh Healthy Vending franchisors are dual-climate and are stocked with a variety of healthy food options, including everything from healthy beverages to yogurt, soymilk and fresh fruits and vegetables. By giving people the ability to franchise, Fresh Healthy Vending has created small business opportunities for people across the country.
Those who are interested in setting up a small business that provides healthy on-the-go snacks will likely have success at setting up the machines in shopping malls, hospitals, college campuses, health clubs, and other such public areas.
Fresh Healthy Vending helps these small business entrepreneurs be successful, because it provides them with comprehensive training and support, marketing and sales reporting tools, and the benefits of the company's marketing and public relations efforts.
"We look forward to helping more small business owners get started and become successful," adds Backer. "Franchising is easy, and it makes entrepreneurship less risky. It's really a win-win situation in the small business sector."
