Our extensive research and development led us to introduce the most ideal healthy vending machine ever – the HealthyYOU Vending System. As an owner-operator, your primary goal is to maximize your vending business potential. Rest assured that this will be achieved with our exclusively built HealthyYOU Machine, our unbeatable long-term support and the strongest guarantees in the industry. There’s a reason we’re recognized as the World Leader and #1 Choice of Healthy Vending Entrepreneurs in the Vending Machine Industry.

What makes HealthyYOU Vending’s machine the best?

To sum it up: “All of the virtues, none of the vices.” In other words, a HealthyYOU Vending machine offers all of the things you want in a healthy vending machine, and none of the things you don’t want. If you’re serious about making money, then you want a machine with exceptional looks, elegance and class. You want a machine that has the capability of accepting credit & debit cards. You want a machine that enables you as the operator the convenience of Remote Machine Monitoring (RMM). You want the optimal number of product selections for most consumers (see below). You want a Lifetime Warranty on your equipment. You want the easiest vending machine to service. You want a machine that can not only vend all the major healthy snacks & drinks, but also gives you the option of vending healthy entrées and side dishes (other machines can’t). You want versatility, security and stability. Above all, you want the best return on your money – you want to go into business with HealthyYOU Vending.

Why do smart investors choose HealthyYOU Vending as their equipment provider?

Experience. Reputation. Innovation. Not only do you want a healthy vending machine you can depend on, you want a company you can rely on. Welcome to HealthyYOU Vending. Our equipment, personal support and professionalism are unparalleled in the industry. You’re not just buying some vending machines − you’re starting a business “partnership” with an equipment provider. At HealthyYOU Vending, we’re in it for the long haul. So we’re with you every step of the way − to help you achieve your goals, by treating them as our own. In fact, our success depends on it.

Why is it important to have a Lifetime Warranty On Your Equipment?

It’s not just important to have a Lifetime Warranty − it’s critical. Your HealthyYOU Machines are income-producing assets. You need the ideal vending machine to GET INTO the best locations − but even more importantly, to STAY in the best locations. Malfunctioning machines take customers’ money and cause headaches for the location. Continuing problems will cause the location to ask to have the machine removed and a new location must be found. The bottom line is: no Lifetime Warranty on the entire vending machine = bad investment decision.

Why are 21 Snack, 9 Drink selections the optimal choice to maximize my cash flow?

To maximize your cash flow, and therefore your investment, you need the optimal number of choices in product selection. Too few choices equals less money put into your vending machines, and therefore your pocket. Too many choices equals stale, unsold products as the “law of diminishing returns” confirms. We have found that 21 healthy snack selections and 9 healthy drink selections are the ideal number of options for most consumers.

Why is it so important for my machines to have the flexibility of vending additional healthy entrée and side dishes with an optional Entrée/Side Dish Vendor?

Employees are sick and tired of unhealthy fast food − but don’t always have time to go out and get a good meal. You can solve the “burger-burnout” dilemma by providing hungry employees a variety of delicious and nutritious ready-to-eat entrées and side dishes with our optional Entrée/Side Dish Vendor. Not only can you offer employers a solution to keep workers on-site by “dining at their desk”, you can also command and reap higher-dollar vends. HealthyYOU Vending doesn’t want you to miss out on this exploding market and the ability to increase your earning capacity.

How much product can each HealthyYOU Vending machine hold?

Each HealthyYOU Vending machine can hold up to 337 healthy snacks and drinks. With the optional Entrée/Side Dish Vendor, your capacity grows to over 415 healthy snacks, drinks and entrées. We have found this to be the ideal amount of product to store in a single machine/location in order to maintain ideal freshness and variety for your customers.

Who finds the locations for my HealthyYOU Machines?

In addition to potential locations from your own contacts, our Prime Healthy Locations team can identify qualified placement opportunities for your new HealthyYOU Vending machines in the geographic areas you want to target. The bottom line is we offer multiple location procurement options based on your timeframe, connections and personal needs.

Do I need to give a percentage of the money I make to the vending location?

Not usually. The business owner/management allows the HealthyYOU Vending machine in his/her establishment because it is a convenience to their customers and/or employees. In the event that the vending location does ask for a percentage, we have a very effective strategy that you can utilize where you don’t have to pay a fee. Ask your HealthyYOU Vending representative for details.

Where is the best place to purchase healthy products for my HealthyYOU Machines?

NOT from a vending company! All they’re doing is marking up the products for a profit. In order to purchase your healthy products direct, and for ultimate freshness and the best price, HealthyYOU Vending will connect you with the largest and most efficient nutritional distribution centers for healthy vending products in the United States. These are the same sources where your local health food store gets its products. In other words, we cut out the “middle man” and save you money. You will be able to utilize a delivery system where products reach you within 24-72 hours of your order being placed, no matter where you’re located in the domestic United States! Placing an order is easy and can be completed either online, via fax, or with a customer service representative over the phone.

What are the best healthy snack and drink products to use? Does the product choice really matter?

With hundreds of different healthy snack and drink products available, what you fill your machines with will depend on each location. HealthyYOU Vending will not only connect you with the largest supplier of healthy vending products in the United States, but we will also provide the best tips and strategies based on the types of locations your HealthyYOU Machines are located in as well as who the patrons of your machines are. For example, your HealthyYOU Machines may be placed in a fitness center, a college campus or in the lobby area of a building with 300 employees. Each location is different with a different clientele. HealthyYOU Vending also provides the industry’s most comprehensive vending software to track and therefore maximize your profits. Strategy is the name of the game!

What is Remote Machine Monitoring (RMM) and how does it work?

In addition to the capability of your HealthyYOU Machines accepting credit/debit cards, they are also equipped with the ability of Remote Machine Monitoring (RMM). Quite simply, RMM is a much more effective and efficient way to monitor and manage sales, profit margins, inventory, etc. − all from your PC or laptop. Imagine receiving a confidential report each day that breaks down everything you want to know about how each of your HealthyYOU Machines performed the previous day. For instance, access information on gross sales, net profit, exactly what and how many of each product was sold, how much was collected in cash, how much was collected in coins, how much was collected in credit cards and how much was collected in debit cards. This is POWERFUL information at your fingertips that can be viewed and monitored in your pajamas.

Does HealthyYOU Vending charge me extra for bill validators, coin acceptors, credit card readers, remote monitoring, software, training, locks, keys or other things that I need?

Absolutely not! Unlike other healthy vending companies, HealthyYOU Vending doesn’t “nickel and dime” you for bill validators, credit card readers or other critical parts/services we feel are necessary for your success. Every item mentioned above, and much more, is included in all of our packages.

Do I have to pay HealthyYOU Vending licensing, trademark or other ongoing fees/royalties?

Why should you?! Our philosophy is different than any other healthy vending company. This is YOUR business, so we let you keep the money. We take nothing. You never have to pay HealthyYOU Vending licensing, trademark or other ongoing fees/royalties

How often do I restock each machine?

Most of our operators restock their HealthyYOU Machines once each week on average. However, machines located in very high traffic areas may need to be restocked sooner. Our Remote Machine Monitoring (RMM) feature also allows you to check your machine’s inventory at any time.

How long does it take to service each healthy vending location?

Because our HealthyYOU Machine is the most simple healthy vending machine to service, it takes only about 20 minutes to service each healthy vending location.

Will I need a truck or van for my healthy vending business?

Usually not. Most of our operators can conduct business with the vehicle they already own. As their healthy vending business grows, some operators choose to invest in one or more company vehicles, which can be a great tax deduction.

Will I need any employees?

No. One person can service scores of machines on a part-time basis. Of course you can hire employees as your healthy vending business grows.

Will I receive the support I need after my healthy vending business investment?

Absolutely! Although you will be in business FOR yourself, you will never be in business BY yourself. Our experienced in-house coaching staff at HealthyYOU Vending stands ready to assist you in every aspect of launching and maintaining your new healthy vending business. For questions, concerns, instructions, or ideas − just ask!

Will I also receive personal, hands-on vending business training?

Of course! We highly recommend that you attend Healthy YOUniversity, our intensive, personal, hands-on vending business training conducted at our Corporate Office and Conference Center over the course of two days. The information and networking opportunities at this healthy vending business training are priceless. Ask your representative for details.

How do most operators get started and how many HealthyYOU machines do they invest in?

Every healthy vending entrepreneur has a different goal in mind. Vending is truly a numbers game. The more HealthyYOU machines you have in good locations, the more money you can make. The only two questions are: how fast do you want to get started, and how much money do you want to make with your HealthyYOU Vending machines?

Do I need to worry about shipping damage?

Unlike most vending companies, HealthyYOU Vending won’t make you go through the hassles of filing a claim with the shipping company should there be any damage to your machines. In the unlikely event of shipping damage, we will resolve the matter quickly and without delay.

Aren’t there tax advantages in the healthy vending business?

Absolutely. In fact, the tax advantages in the healthy vending business are outstanding! According to Section 179 of the United States Internal Revenue Code, during 2017 (as a purchaser of new vending equipment) you may be qualified to receive a tax deduction for the entire amount of your initial capital investment up to $500,000! Additionally, you as an investor are allowed tax deductions for expenses incurred in generating and collecting revenues and in operating and servicing your equipment. Consult your tax advisor to be sure you take advantage of the numerous tax deductions and depreciation in starting and operating your new vending business.

Does HealthyYOU Vending offer any guarantees?

Yes. HealthyYOU Vending is so confident in the success of our HealthyYOU Machines that we offer our “Five Star Guarantee” in writing. This includes our Lifetime Warranty on each and every part of every HealthyYOU Vending machine, our Lifetime Vandalism/Fire/Theft Protection Guarantee, as well as our Shipping Assurance Guarantee.
