Fresh Healthy Vending Launches in Northwest Arkansas

Local business owner inspired to make community healthier with healthy vending machines.

Rogers, AR, December 05, 2012 - (PR.com) - Fresh Healthy Vending, has launched in Northwest Arkansas through franchise owners Dennis and Carla Laing. The Laings currently have 20 Fresh Healthy Vending machines installed throughout the area, and wish to expand by installing additional machines throughout the area, giving the community the option of healthy, natural snacks and beverages such as smoothies, soymilk, fruit, vegetables, yogurt, granola bars, baked chips and natural sodas.

“These vending machines are a great way to offer healthier food options tailored to their dietary needs,” said Dan Negroni, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. “Teaching kids the importance of eating healthfully and prompting them to make more nutritious food choices is something we believe is critical, especially considering the rise in childhood obesity. We are happy to see the community taking the necessary steps to safeguard their children and promote healthful living.”

Laing purchased the vending machine franchise rights from San Diego-based Fresh Healthy Vending, which offers healthier snacks as an alternative to traditional vending machine junk food of sugary drinks and snacks. Inspired to better their own communities, these entrepreneurial franchise owners are dedicated to improving access to healthier snack and beverage options.

“I was disappointed to see the food options available in our local schools,” said Carla Laing. “I want to give children the option of eating healthier, while still maintaining the convenience of a vending machine. Fresh Healthy Vending is the perfect choice, and they have been a big hit among children and schools locally and nationwide.”

The Fresh Healthy Vending machines launching in Northwest Arkansas are some of the 1,700 locations throughout North America, with machines placed in office break rooms, school campuses, shopping malls, hospitals and more. Locally, the Laings have placed machines in Gentry Public Schools, Fayetteville Public Schools, YMCA of Northwest Arkansas, Boys & Girls Club, and other locations where families spend their time. In addition to the healthier vending machine snacks and beverages, Fresh Healthy Vending also produces the Fresh Healthy Café, a vending machine that distributes gourmet organic coffee drinks together with their signature healthy snack options.

Our mission at Fresh Healthy Vending is to offer healthy, natural alternatives to junk food--all at the touch of a button. We specialize in locating and dispensing snacks and drinks that meet the needs of the health conscious, ensuring that our products contain few preservative and dyes, and are, whenever possible, organically produced.

Don’t sit on the sidelines. The Healthy Vending Revolution is happening now. Join it!
