Fresh Healthy Vending has appointed 145 franchisees since its inception in 2010. It reports that over 33 percent of the franchise owners have grown their businesses by adding more machines, a statistic that is overwhelming for the franchise industry as a whole and a true indicator that Healthy Vending as a category is the most promising within the vending industry.
Fresh Healthy Vending provides a business model that incorporates bright, colorful and high-tech Healthy Vending machines that can be operated and monitored remotely. These machines accept debit and credit card and sell a range of popular brand name items such as smoothies, yogurts, organic gourmet coffee, fruits and vegetables in addition to beverages and snack items such as iced tea, protein shakes, organic cookies, bars and chips.
Dan Negroni, the company's CEO, claims the reason his established franchisees are buying more machines is because the model is scalable. "Our goal with each franchisee is to deliver the healthy vending machines to locations that provide the best possible chance of financial success." Negroni said in a prepared statement. "Our in-house locations team has become exceptional at identifying which locations will provide our franchisees with the highest possible return on investment; we then go one step further and secure contracts with each location on our franchisee's behalf."
Negroni further stated, "In addition to securing the best locations, we have mastered the art of marketing our franchisee's businesses within each territory so that we create demand. This makes the job so much easier as locations all over the country are calling us every day asking for our product. Both these programs combined lead to more successful franchisees who continue to add machines to their established routes."
