LOS ANGELES, March 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fresh Healthy Vending, with over 400 vending machines in the marketplace, announces that 14% of all its franchisees have added new locations/ machines within 90 days of beginning business operations. An additional 32% of the remaining franchisees have submitted letters of intent to reserve additional machines for their area within the first 6 month start-up period which is unprecedented for the franchise industry. "We simply don't stop until we get Franchisees the top locations in their area as our infrastructure is based around the most solid business fundamentals," said Jolly Backer, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. "This structure includes having the highest quality vending machines, bright recognizable graphics, specialized menus, ecommerce website for easy online ordering, in-house location development team and dedicated franchisee account management."

Fresh Healthy Vending continues to grow at a rapid pace as its selection process has yielded a match with franchisees capable of growing into great locations as they become available. "Once a franchisee launches in a new territory, we get dozens of requests from other high traffic locations signing up to have a machine placed on their premises," said Backer. "Machines are rolling into high traffic locations as fast as we can build them."

Huntsville Alabama's Fresh Healthy Vending Franchisee businessman Steve Bump began vending operations in February 2011 with 10 machines.
