Healthy Vending Industry Sees Demand from New Location Categories
Non-traditional locations previously reluctant towards vending are signing up for Fresh Healthy Vending machines.
(PRWEB) May 07, 2013 - Fresh Healthy Vending, the Nation’s largest healthy vending company, is seeing overwhelming demand from new location categories never before considered by the vending industry. The company is receiving hundreds of requests each month from churches, car washes, day spas, yoga clinics, dance, karate and gymnastics studios to name a few.
Sarah Phan, community wellness advocate for FreshandHealthy.Org, an initiative established by the healthy vending franchise with $1,000,000 in grant funds offered to qualified locations, has been securing healthy vending locations for over two years now says, “I’ve never seen a response quite like the present in our industry. Every day I call between 30-40 locations on behalf of our franchise network in an assortment of communities all over the country and people all of a sudden are much more receptive to accept our socially responsible vending program."
Last month Fresh Healthy Vending secured 86 new locations for its Franchisees. Its goal in May is to contract a further 140 locations which would be a record for the company.
Michelle Valency, Chief Community Wellness Advocate for Fresh Healthy Vending was quoted as saying, “An assortment of new location categories is the basis for the company’s recent success. We generally target approximately 500-1500 locations for each of our Franchisee’s territories. We have introduced a proprietary method that allows us to be very specific in preparing a list of individuals with whom we choose to speak. Our message is so strong now that almost no one can ignore it. Healthy Vending was once a concept and now it’s a reality supported by Government, school decision makers, parents, corporate wellness managers and business owners."
The Fresh Healthy Vending program offers locations free healthy vending machines with up to $500 cash just for signing up. Monthly commission of anywhere between 15%-25% are also paid the locations. The company’s Franchisees are the owners of the machines. They are completely vested in the machines’ success, which results in the highest level of service. The machines have built-in modems for remote, real time monitoring, which means the Franchisee knows when to visit the locations, what products to take and if the machine may require service of any kind. Each Franchisee refers to himself or herself as a healthy vending ambassador. These ambassadors are uniformed, educated on health facts as well as being product specialists.
