SAN DIEGO, CA - (Marketwired - Apr 28, 2015) - Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. (OTCQB: VEND) -- Entrepreneur Magazine recently released its 2015 new franchise rankings and Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. has been awarded number seven on this prestigious list of 75 new franchises. Earlier this year, the Company was honored by Entrepreneur as the number one vending franchise on its Franchise 500 list.
According to Entrepreneur Magazine, "all companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. We also consider the number of years a company has been in business and the length of time it's been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing."
As of January 2015, the Company has over 220 active Franchisees in 44 States of the U.S. who operate a combined 2,750 healthy vending machines and Micro Markets. The Company plans to continue its rapid growth by building solid foundations, launching innovative, new products to the industry, and providing superior service at every level.
"It's always nice to receive accolades that are a result of our hard work at Fresh Healthy Vending. What's great is that our concept is still considered to be so new, innovative and timely which allows us to continue growing our footprint of Franchisees across the nation. What's even better is that there is still so much territory available for new Franchisees to sign up for," said Nick Yates, the Founder of the company.
