July 30, 2012 // Franchising.com // SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - Fresh Healthy Vending, a leader in the healthy vending machine industry, has officially launched their new line of machines, the Fresh Healthy Vending Cafés. The new machines, which will be located throughout office buildings, college campuses, call centers, and retail stores across the U.S. and Canada, offer consumers the ability to have fresh ground organic coffee with the touch of a button.
“These high-tech vending machines grind, and brew, organic coffee beans on demand, and around the clock, serving a selection of espresso coffee drinks, mochas, and vanilla lattes, along with an assortment of healthy snacks and drinks,” explained Dan Negroni, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending.
A leading competitor who also recently launched a coffee vending machine reports they expect to sell roughly 10,000 cups per year, per machine, with their machines being located in grocery stores alongside their current DVD vending machines.
“This is music to our ears, as our own Fresh Healthy Vending Cafés sell a larger selection of specialty coffee drinks, as well as a popular range of natural, organic and healthy snacks,” says Negroni.
Fresh Healthy Vending is expanding beyond its original healthy snack machines, as they continue to boost sales for its franchise network across America. The company anticipates around 250 of these machines will roll out by the end of 2012, with tens of thousands more being added over the next several years. Fresh Healthy Vending also has plans for another new high-tech vending machine coming soon, that is destined to revolutionize and rejuvenate the food vending industry once again.
According to the Lempert Report, a respected news and commentary source for the food and beverage industry, due to the rise of single-person households, the eating needs of younger people, and the time crunch of chief household shoppers, new markets now exist and are evolving for 24-hour vending with the right location strategies. This report observes that changing consumer lifestyles have increased the need for good food values for consumers on the run.
With Fresh Healthy Vending’s experience in high-quality healthy snack vending and knowledge in automatic retail methods, the new Fresh Healthy Vending Café will likely reach out to locations where it’s traditionally hard to find great coffee and healthy snacks. Soon, with their help of the new machines, fresh tasting organic specialty coffee drinks and healthy snacks will be at consumer’s fingertips 24-hours a day.
Based in San Diego, Fresh Healthy Vending Café is the latest exclusive revolutionary launch of Fresh Healthy Vending, a company that started in 2010 and is revolutionizing vending machines by filling them with healthy, natural and organic food and beverage options. Dubbed the "future of vending" Fresh is the largest Healthy Vending Company in North America. To learn more about Fresh Healthy Vending, visit the website at www.freshvending.com.
