Why Healthy Vending?

WHY PROMOTE HEALTHY EATING?

Many companies have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, Corporate Wellness Programs as a means to help lower rising healthcare costs and promote a healthier, more productive work force. Eating a healthy, balanced diet has many benefits for the overall health of your employees including increased energy and work productivity — even fewer sick days. A healthy diet can also help to prevent health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.

YOUR EMPLOYEES & EMPLOYERS WANT HEALTHY OPTIONS

In a recent study, nearly all respondents reported that they are trying to improve at least one aspect of their eating habits. This same study stated that the “healthfulness” of a product greatly impacted (by 61%) a respondent’s decision to purchase it.

With over 1,100 healthy drink, snack and meal products to choose from, your employees or customers could soon be enjoying delicious items that can be:

  • Organic

  • Low-calorie

  • Low-fat

  • Kosher

  • Gluten-free

  • Low-carb

  • All natural

DO WE HAVE TO SIGN AN AGREEMENT?

We ask that you sign a basic agreement that outlines the relationship between your location and us – just so everyone is comfortable.  This contract has no time commitment. It basically states that we will be responsible for keeping the machine stocked and maintained.

DOES OUR COMPANY HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS MACHINE?

Not a dime.  Machines are provided at absolutely NO cost to your business. In fact, not only do we provide the machine, we service and stock it on a regular basis.

WHO STOCKS THESE MACHINES?

We do. We will monitor, stock and service the machine as often is necessary. Each of our operators are well trained to ensure that the quality of service provided is far superior to anything you may have experienced before with other machines. We are local residents of your community and are therefore eager to share our commitment to offering healthy products to your employees/customers.

CAN THE COMPANY PICK WHAT GOES INTO THE MACHINE?

Yes – your company can be instrumental in the products that are offered. We believe it is important to provide a good variety of healthy products in order to satisfy everyone. We will initially fill the machine with the most popular healthy products selling in our area. Later, we will meet with you to discuss changes to the selections and your suggestions – and may offer some free product sampling events as well.

WHAT TRAINING HAVE YOU RECEIVED?

We have gone through extensive training in several areas – including the operation and maintenance of the machine, nutritional guidelines, product management, inventory control, product sampling, etc.  But the main thing is customer service – we are here to serve you and the patrons of the machine.  We will provide you with a business card and a label on the machine with our local contact information should you ever need it.

WHAT TYPE OF PRODUCT GOES INTO THESE MACHINES?

The healthy products we provide are all national name brand items. These are the same products you can find on the shelves of your local health food grocers such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. Many of these healthier products are now going mainstream and can be found on the shelves of traditional grocery stores and even convenience stores.  Not only do the products we offer provide healthier alternatives, but they also taste great and people really love eating them!

 IF WE HAVE A CONTRACT WITH ANOTHER VENDOR, CAN WE STILL RECEIVE A HEALTHY VENDING MACHINE?

This depends on the specific contract.  Many contracts are exclusive only to “traditional” vending products (e.g. Snickers, Coke, etc.). Therefore, this doesn’t cause an issue as we can create menu plans of non-competing items to those in a different machine. The reality is that many vending companies claim they can provide healthier options, but very few do.
