SAN DIEGO, CA - (Marketwired - May 6, 2015) - (OTCQB: VEND) Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. closed out April with 96 franchised units sold to seven new Franchisees, marking $980,000 in anticipated future revenue.
New Colorado Franchisee Tony Savignano is eager to embark on his journey with the Company. He remarks that he "chose Fresh Healthy Vending for 3 main reasons: the business model being a full service franchise where FHV helps secure locations; the trend in my area for people of all ages to eat healthier; and because I felt that it would be a great business to have in the twilight of my career."
Further, the Company announces 89 new locations secured in April that will feature its healthy vending machines and Fresh Micro Markets nationwide. Of note, the Company secured the Apple Store in Minnesota's renowned Mall of America as well as nine Florida courthouses, the Charlotte Nature Museum, several YMCAs and Boys & Girls Clubs, and the World Trade Center in Baltimore, to name a few.
In addition to its location procurement and booking achievements, the Company debuted its Fresh Micro Market to the vending industry at the NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Company was also honored by Entrepreneur Magazine as #7 out of 75 contenders for its prestigious Top New Franchise in 2015 award.
"April was a great month for Fresh Healthy Vending in so many ways. Launching our Fresh Micro Market to the vending industry for the first time with many established vending operators now considering joining our team as Franchisees is something we've been striving toward for a long time. We've wanted to convince the industry since our inception that our products and services can help them grow their own businesses and now we have a chance to do exactly that," said Chairman and Founder Nick Yates.
Yates continued, "We are also honored to be recognized and awarded as one of Entrepreneur Magazine's Top New Franchises in 2015, this being a true testament to the Fresh Healthy Vending team's hard work and persistence month after month."
