“Our success so far in 2016 is a direct result of the message we have chosen to send to the market. Solid franchising principles such as careful location procurement, combined with industry leading support on all levels is what Fresh Healthy Vending represents. We believe this coupled with our ability to continue identifying new technologies and trends that allow our business sustainability and longevity, is what prospective franchisees are looking for. It’s why they partner with us,” said Nick Yates, Chairman of Fresh Healthy Vending. “As the numbers continue to grow for Fresh Healthy Vending, expansion remains the key to our success.”
The Fresh Healthy Vending locations team secured 88 new franchisee locations in February, with over half of these locations being education facilities. Expansion through
critical key location partnerships such as the University of Oklahoma, who signed for six healthy vending machines in February, is imperative to our franchisees’ success as we continue to expand our brand into the nation’s largest education, health care and corporate institutions.
