There's No Better Time To Open a Healthy YOU Vending Business
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. To state the obvious, the economy has been shifting over the last few months. While many sectors and markets have been impacted, we believe that over time, many new opportunities will also come forward as we venture into new ways to go about our day-to-day lives.
We recently came across this article by ModernRetail titled: “‘The timing couldn’t be better’: Vending machines are entering a new golden age”.
The article sums up some of the key perks of owning a vending machine business - it checks off all the essential points of social distancing regulations, leverages technology and reduces labor cost. However, there are so many more benefits to opening a vending machine business!
All about Healthy YOU Vending
The first time we heard about Healthy YOU Vending’s business concept, we fell in love. More than just a food vending business, Healthy YOU Vending specialises in dispensing healthy snacks and beverages - like those commonly found at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, but in single-serve sizes. The machines are technologically rich and automatically monitored through a remote cloud system, providing alerts when goods are running low, or currency bills are fully stacked.
But there’s so much more to this business opportunity!
Convenience within your neighborhood
Healthy YOU Vending machines can be placed conveniently in neighborhoods, reducing the number of grocery runs to stock up on snacks.
P.S. The optional SmartMart Side Vendor offers location-specific products - ranging from razors, to headphones, to even vitamins. You can bring all these things to the convenience of your neighborhood too!
Fully automated technology means working from the comfort of your home
It is important to still remain safe while trying to be your own boss - and this is the perfect way to stay inside. Automated cloud tracking allows you to monitor your machine from the comfort of your own home, and you only have to head out for maintenance when absolutely necessary.
More than keeping your customers safe while getting snacks, this also keeps you, as the owner, safe at home.
Making healthy snacks easy to access and convenient to your neighborhood
Let’s be real here - how many times this month have you made boxed macaroni and cheese because it was the simplest thing to make? Staying in has definitely made our lifestyles a little more sedentary, so you can make a change in your neighborhood by bringing healthy snacks to the people near you!
As businesses continue to pivot to meet the changing demands, Healthy YOU vending presents a unique position amidst a pandemic. Considering our shifting cultures and economy, there is nothing more important than flexibility - what more, an opportunity to do it safely. Both for the new entrepreneurs who look for convenient business opportunities, and for the customers who are looking for healthy food options.

What Experience Do I Need To Open A Franchise?
A very common question with no easy answer. The kind and amount of experience you need depends on the franchise you’re looking to buy into, of course. However, here are some common themes to help guide your search.
Advice From Franchisees Who Have Been There

The franchise agreement should also address who gets to use the franchisee’s phone numbers after the franchise agreement expires. Traditionally, this right has belonged to the franchisor, but with home-based businesses becoming the norm, franchisors that allowed franchisees to use their home phones or existing cell phone numbers might have an issue regaining control of this component of their former franchisees’ business presence.
