8 Things About HealthyYOU Vending Every Operator Should Know
Since your machines are the income-producing assets of your healthy vending business, it’s important to understand how HealthyYOU Vending machines are superior compared to the competition. Here are eight things everyone considering healthy vending should know:
First in the industry
In 2007, HealthyYOU Vending began selling the first healthy vending machines in the nation, several years before most of our competitors were in business. Being first allowed us to set the benchmark for the industry, as we discovered how different healthy vending was from traditional vending.
Entrepreneurs choose HealthyYOU
More entrepreneurs have chosen our company than all of our competitors combined. The HealthyYOU Vending machine is one of the main reasons why.
Machine designed with you in mind
We designed the HealthyYOU Vending machine ourselves based on an analysis of other machines on the market and the feedback of thousands of our operators. Since this is our proprietary machine, no one else can sell it.
Ease of use
The HealthyYOU Vending machine was designed for those new to vending so we made it plug-and-play for ease of use. New owners will learn to operate and maintain their new healthy vending machines at Healthy YOUniversity.
Made in the USA
HealthyYOU Vending machines are made in the U.S. at the Seaga manufacturing facility in Illinois. Seaga has been manufacturing vending machines for over 30 years and has made machines for big-name companies like Coke and Pepsi.
Having a U.S.A.-made machine is important to us. The steel for our machines comes from the Midwest. It arrives at the Seaga manufacturing facility in Illinois, where it is cut, punched, formed and painted into the cabinet and door for our machine. Components are added and then the machine is rigorously tested. Quality is part of the Seaga culture, and it’s one of only a handful of vending manufacturers with both an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and a BBB accreditation. Visitors are welcome at Seaga’s manufacturing facility to watch HealthyYOU Vending being manufactured. We are also one of the few healthy vending companies with a U.S.-made main computer board in our machines.
A focus on quality has allowed us to have our machine NAMA-certified. NAMA is the National Automatic Merchandising Association and is the watchdog of the vending industry. This certification means our machine meets the rigorous 45-page standard covering the materials, design, construction and performance of vending machines. NAMA certification is actually required in 23 states, but not all competitor machines meet those standards. The fact that our machines do meet NAMA certification is one reason we are able to offer such a great warranty.
HealthyYOU Vending machines meet ADA requirements. The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that for wheelchair accessibility no operable part of a vending machine can be higher than 48 inches from the floor.
