Fresh Healthy Vending, International Inc. Reports October Sales Growth With Addition Of 74 Secured Locations And …

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc.[1] (OTC Markets: VEND[2]), North America’s leading healthy vending franchisor, today reported the addition of five new franchisees and 74 newly secured locations in the month of October. This brings the total number of appointed Fresh Healthy Vending franchisees to over 205.

With locations secured by Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc., the five new franchise owners will each manage machines in various locations throughout their territories.

Neil Watko and his two sons will manage 11 machines in Pittsburgh/Allegheny County, Pa. With a 35-year sales background, Neil prides his family in being health-oriented and active, and is excited to bring the first healthy vending machines to their community.

In Dallas, Jim Scofield has purchased 11 machines to encourage a healthy lifestyle movement for others in his area, after recently focusing on the importance of healthy eating in his own life and making drastic strides for his well-being.

Bryan and Dana Boutwell, in Fort Mill, S.C., found Fresh Healthy Vending through news of another local franchisee and will use the placement of their five healthy vending machines to further their message of healthy lifestyles throughout their community.

Other franchisees include Roy and Jill Bodinus, in Noblesville, Ind., with six machines, and Bob Schell, in South Bend, Ind., with five machines.

The 38 machines sold in October represent a total of $386,000 in future revenues for the company once Fresh Healthy Vending secures locations and installs machines for these franchises. Additionally, Fresh Healthy Vending collected approximately $180,000 in balance payments from current franchisees for whom locations have been obtained and machines will be installed.

“We are extremely proud of our sales successes in October, with both the secured locations across the country and addition of franchisees who are not only passionate about the business side of Fresh Healthy Vending, but also genuinely looking to make a positive change in their regions,” said Alex Kennedy, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. “With franchisees as the backbone of the business, Fresh Healthy Vending provides opportunities that can be described as a ’cause beyond financial benefit,’ which tie franchisees to a socially-responsible cause that is making for a healthier nation, one community at a time.”

In conjunction with the acquisition of the new franchises this October, Fresh Healthy Vending added two new territory managers to its team. Lauren Turner and Sherry Barbot will work to secure locations for current and new franchisees, as well as add to the thousands of locations across the U.S. with healthy snack options from Fresh Healthy Vending machines.

As the first and largest healthy vending company in America, Fresh Healthy Vending is unique in providing a range of products that meet and exceed the USDA standards. Machines are stocked with all-natural, organic and preservative-free snacks and beverages ensuring that nutrient-rich selections are available. Gluten-free, nut-free and kosher products are among the 6,000 choices.

The Fresh Healthy Vending machine locations secured in October are some of more than 2,000 locations throughout North America, with locations in office break rooms, school campuses, community centers, shopping malls, hospitals and more.

In addition to the healthier vending machines’ snacks and beverages, Fresh Healthy Vending also produces Fresh Healthy Cafe: a vending machine that distributes gourmet organic coffee drinks together with signature healthy snack options. In September, Fresh Healthy Vending announced the launch of its Fresh Healthy Vending Touch machine: the first-ever digital healthy vending machine. The interactive, fully customizable machine boasts a 46-inch, 3D touchscreen powered by Intel Processor. As of October 2013, Fresh Healthy Vending has appointed over 200 franchisees.

    How Can I Keep Up My Healthy Lifestyle Over Easter? I have been trying to keep a healthy lifestyle, build fitness and lose a little fat. But I am surrounded by Easter treats, mum has been baking loads, have Easter eggs from family and my bf wants to get me an Easter egg too. Don’t get me wrong, I love how sweet everyone is being, but all of this will just make me I’ll. What should I do?

    1. Reply

      If you’d like me to be honest, I think that the healthiest lifestyles include enjoying things. So every now and then, let go of the fact that “something will make me fat” and enjoy it. I think that often as people we give up a large part of living just to stay skinny. I used to be that way, and as much as I told myself it was worth it, it really wasn’t. Enjoy it, and don’t go on a guilt trip over it.

      That being said, there are several things you can do to avoid extra treats. Stay away from the kitchen as much as possible, as well as where things are being served. When you get things, get just a small bit. I’ve noticed that with a lot of sweetbreads and cakes and such, a very thin slice takes just as long to eat as a thick one and is usually just as satisfying. If not, you can even get a second (which, sliced thinly enough, is still smaller than the thick slices would be). Another trick I’ve learned is “sharing”–if it is a roll or whatever, just eat half of it and “share” the other half with someone else (maybe someone else who either just wants half, or someone who wants more than one).

      Enjoy Easter!

    How Will You Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle In The Future? Imagine yourself after college. You’re married with a few kids. You’re gaining a few pounds every now and then. How will you get yourself back on track into a healthy lifestyle?

      Minus the after college part, but I have 2 kids and am expecting the third one in a few weeks. We maintain healthy lifestyles by eating nutritious foods, lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies, and milk. We also get a lot of exercise in. Although my kids are still toddlers and I’m big as a house, everyday as a family my husband and I walk with the kids up and down the road, then when we get home my husband stays outside with the kids and plays with them while I get supper fixed. We don’t turn the TV on until after baths, forcing us to get up off the couch. Hopefully that will encourage our kids to maintain healthy lifestyles after they’re all grown up.
