Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc., North America’s leading healthy vending franchisor, announces 100 locations secured in June, for the intended placement of healthy snack machines across the country. Rounding the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company has entered into agreements with a total of 273 new locations on behalf of its franchise network.
“Our location procurement team has been busy securing quality locations for our franchisees,” said Alex Kennedy, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. “As each month passes, our team continually demonstrates the attractive win-win values of our business model to decision makers in a variety of location categories. With that, we're finding more and more of those decision makers across the nation are taking the initiative to provide consumers with an alternative to the traditional, unhealthy snacks generally found in other vending machines.”
School campuses made up more than 30 percent of June’s secured locations, as Fresh Healthy Vending supports the efforts of the USDA's Smart Snacks in School standards, requiring schools to offer food items that meet certain requirements in relation to calories, sodium, fat and sugar. The Company recently launched its website platform www.freshandhealthy.org, which caters to the new USDA guidelines and supports locations looking to implement a healthy vending program.
