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.

If we haven’t already convinced you about why Healthy YOU Vending is the perfect business opportunity, you can check out their profile here for all the good stuff.

Franchise Financing Options

Recently I've received a few questions from our users about what their options are when it comes to financing their franchise. So I figured it might be a good idea to put together a quick post outlining some of the options out there for financing your new franchise.

Franchise Hurdles

The first point I made ties into this, but you need to make sure you’ve done your research before you go ahead and sign a franchising agreement. And that doesn’t just mean from a financial perspective. There are so many other aspects in running a franchise that you need to understand before you get started. Most of this information can be found in the Franchise Disclosure Documents. Some of the most important things you should take a look at would be any legal issues the franchisor might have and the churn rate of franchises. Both of those could potentially be pretty significant red flags that might make you want to reconsider whether or not you want to open that franchise.

A Primer on Cooperative Advertising and Outdoor Ads

Larger parties (e.g manufacturers, brands, and franchisors) typically covers the lion’s share of an ad’s cost via reimbursement or in trade. This makes local advertising affordable for your business, while simultaneously lowering out-of-pocket and inventory costs.
