Jolly Backer, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending, says that "Fresh Healthy Vending machines are becoming an 'in demand' program across the country, as locations are inundating us with requests for machines due to the rising popularity of healthy snacks and drinks. We see Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Fresh & Easy stores popping up all over the country on a weekly basis, and our healthy vending machines offer essentially a smaller selection of what these retail stores offer, including fresh juices, yogurts, organics chips and bars, and many other healthy and organic treats."

What separates us from the rest?

"Fresh Healthy Vending simply has momentum," says Backer. "Our business model is turnkey, easy to operate and happens to be in one of today's most exciting categories, being health and wellness. The most appealing aspect of our business is that we have so many successful franchisees in the market already, which makes the decision from new franchisees an easy one. There is little guesswork in our approach."

Consumers are now seeking out healthy and organic snacks and drinks because it fits into their new healthy lifestyles that many in the U.S are adapting. "Our Fresh Healthy Vending franchise appeals to socially responsible entrepreneurs, because they want to own a business that makes a positive impact on their community, and at the same time, own a business that they are proud to tell their families and friends about," added Backer. "At the rate we're growing, we're on track to completely sellout the U.S. market by the end of 2013."
