San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
Fresh Healthy Vending acquired 90 diverse sites for its franchisees across North America in June, a record number for the organization. As the largest healthy vending company in operation today, Fresh Healthy Vending provides services that include securing prime vending location contracts for its network of over 200 franchisees.
The 90 new locations where Fresh Healthy Vending machines can be found are scattered throughout North America. They include Grand River Hospital in Ontario, Canada; North Carolina's Durham School of the Arts; the Commack Public Library on New York's Long Island; the YMCA of Greenwich, Connecticut, and Dublin High School in Laurens County, Georgia. The diverse geography of these new sites allows more people the opportunity to experience the Fresh Healthy Vending difference: high tech, healthy vending machines that offer only nutritious, wholesome snacks and beverages.
Fresh Healthy Vending utilizes an innovative strategy for selecting new markets and helping its franchisees secure locations. Its nearly two dozen dedicated Community Wellness Advocates, who represent franchisees in their chosen markets, use proprietary techniques to identify potential new locations. They contact decision makers at each site, gain insight into the positive impact that making healthy choices can have on the employees, students or customers at those locations, and confirm the prospect's interest before scheduling a meeting between the site administrators and the local Fresh Healthy Vending franchisee.
Wearing a Fresh Healthy Vending uniform and carrying professional business cards provided by the company, the franchisee brings Fresh Healthy Vending product samples, menus and marketing materials to the meeting. These are designed to support the presentation, and can be left with the prospective client for the decision-making process. After the meeting, the Community Wellness Advocate handles the rest — including all legal responsibilities for contracting with the location.
Fresh Healthy Vending believes its franchisee program is top notch in terms of the support it offers. “I still find locations that are blown away by the fact that a program like ours exists,” said Diane Bailey, one of the company's 22 Community Wellness Advocates. “I always love it when I can hear the smile in their voice, knowing they are making the right decision on behalf of the school or business they represent. I can tell that it makes their day,” she said.
Fresh Healthy Vending has committed $1,000,000 in grant funds to qualified locations that are prepared to provide the healthy vending option. To encourage communities to offer healthier snacks, the company created FreshandHealthy.org, a website designed to motivate decision makers at eligible locations to sign up for a free healthy vending machine. Monthly retention incentives are also available to these clients.
Fresh Healthy Vending provides opportunities that can be described as “a cause beyond financial benefit,” part of a socially-responsible lifestyle choice that helps others; franchisees are an integral part of the business. Machines are stocked with all-natural, organic and preservative-free snacks and beverages – all nutrient-rich selections. The 2,300 choices available also include gluten-free and nut-free products.
Keeping minds and bodies in better shape are part of the directives for Fresh Healthy Vending, the first franchiser of healthy vending machines. The company leads with first-to-market in products and equipment, and uses the latest vending technologies while offering the most comprehensive franchisee support structure.
