Does our facility have to pay for the machine?
Not a dime. We provide Machines at absolutely NO cost to your business. In fact, not only do we provide the machine, we service and stock it on a regular basis.
Who stocks the machine?
We do. We will monitor, stock and service the machine as often as necessary. Each of our operators are well trained to ensure that the quality of service provided is far superior to anything you may have experienced before with other machines.
Can our facility choose the products that go into the machine?
Yes – your facility can be instrumental in the products that are offered. We believe it is important to provide an awesome variety of healthy products in order to satisfy everyone. We will initially fill the machine with the most popular healthy products selling in our area, including organic, natural, and gluten-free options. Later, we will meet with you to discuss changes to the selections and your suggestions – and may offer some free product sampling events as well.
How often does the company stock the machine?
Typically, once a week. Each machine is equipped with it’s own cellular system for remote monitoring. We see the levels of products every day and make adjustments to the frequency of service constantly.
How many machines can you provide to our business – more than one?
This depends on several factors. First we need to evaluate the volume of foot traffic on a daily basis. Next, we need to consider if there is competition from other vending machines located in your business if you have any. If these two factors confirm there’s enough demand for an additional machine, we will be happy to supply one to your business. Some locations such as large schools, businesses, colleges, etc. may have enough demand for multiple machines.
What types of healthy products will be stocked in the machines?
We are proud to provide Natural, Organic and gluten-free options. These are the same products you can find on the shelves of your local health food grocers such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. Many of these healthier products are now going mainstream and can be found on the shelves of traditional grocery stores and even convenience stores. Not only do the products we offer provide healthier alternatives, but they also taste great and people really love eating them!
If we have a contract with another vendor, can we still receive a healthy vending machine?
This depends on the specific contract. Many contracts are exclusive only to “traditional” vending products (e.g. Snickers, Coke, etc.). Therefore, this does not cause an issue as we can create menu plans of non-competing items to those in a different machine. The reality is that many vending companies claim they can provide healthier options, but very few do.
