Fresh Healthy Vending announces new franchisee, seeks placement locations

Fresh Healthy Vending, the company that revolutionized the vending machine sector, announces a new franchisee in Charleston, South Carolina.

Nathaniel Mercer has purchased the healthy vending franchise and is in the process of selecting locations where each machine will be placed. With limited opportunities available, those who would like a vending machine placed in their facility will need to act quickly. "We are happy to bring fresh vending to Charleston County in South Carolina. People are ready to embrace this as a way to obtain healthy food on the run," explains Jolly Backer, chief executive officer of Fresh Healthy Vending. "Those who get one of the vending machines in their facility will find that they do well simply because of what is offered." The Fresh Healthy Vending placement in South Carolina joins over 1,100 other machines that have been established throughout North America. The machines will be offering a vending selection that is completely stocked with all-healthy foods and beverages. Aside from the monetary benefits of hosting a vending machine, it also provides access to healthy snack and drink options, which will help keep minds and bodies in better shape. This in turn helps to eliminate the junk food, which is associated with causing obesity, higher absenteeism, and higher medical insurance rates. New workplace wellness programs are now in place all across North America in companies to promote healthier lifestyles.  The vending machines are stocked with such items as soymilk, yogurt, fresh fruits and vegetables, and a variety of other nutritious options. For many, this comes as a much-needed tool in helping to combat the obesity epidemic. It provides people with healthy options, without having to the time to shop or prepare them, which is often a complaint people have about eating healthy. The vending machines make a good fit for such places as middle schools, high schools, office buildings, hospitals, college campuses, health clubs, shopping malls, and a variety of other public venues. Locations where the Fresh Healthy Vending machines are currently being placed:

  • Ashley Hall – Charleston, SC
  • First Baptist School – Charleston, SC
  • Medical University of South Carolina (x3) – Charleston, SC
  • Charleston Airport Administrative Office (x2) – Charleston, SC
  • Charleston Air Force Base (x3) – Charleston, SC
