24/7: Fresh Healthy Vending at Miami’s VA Medical Center

Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Dade County’s large Veteran’s Administration Medical Center operates around the clock. That’s a good thing for Veterans and for Fresh Healthy Vending Franchisee Pamela Santucci. Turns out, it’s also a good thing for staff members at the facility.

Santucci shared that from the reports she generates online, she can tell which items are sold from her machine and when they are sold. Turns out, some of her best sales come in the wee hours of the morning.

“We like to supply items that can function as a light meal or meal supplement. We see the protein drinks and bars selling late in the night at break and meal times for the shift personnel,” said Santucci. “We know the staff makes some of these purchases. The food service area is shut down then and so is the Starbucks; and they don’t want to make the trip out to the convenience store at that time of night.

“We’ve had feedback from the staff and it’s all positive, they’re so grateful to have healthy food available. We only have one machine, it’s in the vending area with 6 other machines and we’re the only one with nutritious choices.”

The Territory Managers at Fresh Healthy Vending’s corporate headquarters in San Diego secured the location for her. The Medical Center houses a hospital and a rehab facility along with many other services. “The place is huge and the location has been fantastic. The facility is open 24/7 with access to the machine 24 hours every day. The products are very popular and we have to restock regularly,” she said.

Santucci has 10 machines total, some are in Broward County adjacent to Miami Dade County. Her locations include schools, a casino, an auto headquarters and an outpatient clinic that is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. But the VA Medical Center machine easily outsells all the others.

“We know the machine provides food for the Veterans there too, it’s a major health center. We’re near a hot coffee machine but our refrigerated, bottled coffee beverages and the Tazo green tea are some of our most popular items,” said Santucci.

She has lived in Florida for over 30 years, most of the time just outside of Fort Lauderdale. Her career for the past 20 years was in state and local health departments, “government work,” she noted. So perhaps the VA Medical Center is a good fit in that regard too.
