Product Development Team Launches New Platforms For Healthy Vending Franchisees
Team Approach To Understanding What Sells Results In Franchisee Success
San Diego, California (PRWEB) May 31, 2013 - With national growth and global expansion the ‘standard’ at San Diego-based Fresh Healthy Vending, the company’s commitment to teamwork and service is as strong as ever. The supportive approach offered by this healthy vending company provides franchisees with personalized service and complete access to their in-house Product Development Team.
This department provides support for franchisees so that their business can operate as efficiently and successfully as possible. Work on a new contract for each new machine location begins with staff researching the extensive guidelines and restrictions based on laws and ordinances along with operator-specific instructions.
Once the research is complete, they create individualized menus or “Plan-o-Grams” specific to each location. These are based on national nutritional guidelines for schools, hospitals, businesses and gyms along with franchisee requests. Megan Willshon, Product Development Manager, said “Franchisees have the option to adjust the menus once they see what may or may not be selling. Basically, anything someone requests, we try to create.” From there the department handles order submissions through a personalized e-commerce web site and manages all billing and invoicing so the franchisee deals directly with one point of contact only.
The department can pull reports based on top-selling items to help generate the greatest profits for each location. While managing a plethora of moving parts and adding new items, the company continues its dedication to providing great franchisee service. According to Willshon, “We talk to each individual operator on a one-on-one basis and provide updates every week.”
The Product Development Team also advises on market trends, bestselling products and new items to expand ordering options. Franchisees have access to test kitchens where new products are tried. They also have the opportunity to introduce local or regional products that are not offered through Fresh Healthy Vending suppliers.
Fresh Healthy Vending can place machines in locations that have existing contracts with Coke or Pepsi, in turn, menus can be created with non-competitive products. The machines can be stocked with very specific nutritional options that can range from nut free, kosher only, gluten free, vegan, non-gmo, organic or other restrictions.
With a full, in-house Products Development Team to support them, the latest vending technologies, access to over 2,000 products and online ordering, the company boasts the most comprehensive support structure. Each franchisee has a unique opportunity to go beyond standard know-how and expand their growth based on real-time research and notable trends.
They introduced a completely new concept, the Freshandhealthy.org initiative for potential locations. It offers $1 million in incentives to sites around the country that want to provide healthy vending. So far, more than $300K has been given away.
