7 Reasons Healthy YOU Vending Is Better Than a Franchise
You’ve finally decided to start your own business and are looking for franchise opportunities. Good for you! Things to consider include your initial investment, long-term business goals, budget, interests, support and more.
If you’re still researching your options, here are seven reasons why Healthy YOU Vending is a better fit than a standard franchise for reaching your business goals.
1. Franchise-level support.
Unlike many traditional franchises, Healthy YOU Vending is here for YOU. We strive to provide the franchise-level support you need without the restrictions a franchise might include. A few of our healthy vending owner/operator benefits include:
- No long-term fees. We don’t collect royalties or other ongoing fees. After one upfront investment to pay for your machines, your healthy vending business is completely under your control. You get to choose the amount you spend to stock your machines without worrying about paying royalty and other fees to us.
- Location support. Healthy YOU’s placement experts work tirelessly to find the locations that will work best for your healthy vending machines. We study the best companies and locations for your machines to make sure you succeed.
- Healthy YOUniversity. Going into the vending machine business with no idea what you’re doing? We’re here for you. Healthy YOUniversity is a two-day program designed to answer your questions and leave you feeling confident as you enter the vending machine business. You will receive hands-on instructions about our vending machines as you learn with expert trainers, owners and executives.
- Lifetime Coaching. Still have questions? Never fear, our Lifetime Coaches are only a phone call away. Our support team is always ready to answer your questions and help you overcome any challenges you may have. And if you need technical support, we’re here for you, too. IT support is available by phone, live chat or email, ensuring that you get the help you need.
2. You keep the money.
Some vending companies sell a franchise model and charge you astronomical fees, both upfront and ongoing—Yikes! Healthy YOU Vending will never burden you with franchises for sale, royalty or recurring fees. After all, this is YOUR business and you should keep the money.
3. No geographic restrictions.
Exclusive territory is an illusion marketed by franchises. They limit your expansion as a business and restrict your opportunity to grow. At Healthy YOU Vending, we believe you should be able to expand your vending machine business at the rate YOU determine, in any location you choose, without consequences. We’ll help you place your machines, but we’ll never limit your locations or tell you when and how many to place.
4. You’re free to purchase products anywhere.
Unlike some vending machine franchises, Healthy YOU Vending lets you buy your snacks, drinks and meals anywhere. We don’t mark-up products and force you to buy them from us or make you buy from an approved franchise product list. We’ll introduce you to the largest and most efficient nutritional distribution centers in the nation so you can buy direct, or you can choose to purchase healthy vending products from your local warehouse store. It’s your choice! This is just another way Healthy YOU Vending helps you achieve a healthy bottom line.
5. Enjoy higher earning potential with Healthy YOU Vending’s exclusive SmartMart vendor.
Healthy YOU Vending is virtually the only healthy vending company to offer an optional entrée/side dish vendor. Our SmartMart exclusive addition to your vending machines allows you to be rewarded with higher dollar vends, while providing convenient meal options that other healthy vending companies can’t offer—adding a whole new dimension to your vending business.
And SmartMart can offer more than just entrees and side dishes. You can choose to stock yours with anything you’d like. Some vendors choose to stock their side vendor with supplies like headphones for the gym or items that are often forgotten in hotels like phone chargers, razors and toothbrushes. Some choose to stock their machines with larger snack options that won’t fit in a typical vending machine. The choice is completely yours to make when choosing what will suit your location best. And be sure to consider the advantages of our Wellness Centers!
These unique add-ons will give you a competitive advantage when building your vending business.
6. Work from the comfort of your own home.
Aside from the occasional machine service and restocks, very few in-person appearances are needed to manage your healthy vending machines. Machines are monitored virtually and you are notified via text or email about any important machine updates, whether it is a part in need of repair or an item that needs to be restocked. You can access machine information from any device any time of day, meaning you can run your business without having to leave the comfort of your home.
7. Work with a company you can count on.
You may be new to healthy vending but we’re not. With 23 years in business, over 5,000 vending business owners nationwide and nearly many thousands of machines sold, we know what it takes to help you be successful in the vending industry—and we’re here for you every step of the way with complete training, ongoing support, lifetime coaching and the strongest guarantees in the industry.
