Five Reasons to Join the Healthy Vending Industry
Vending/automatic merchandising is a multi-billion dollar industry, and growing. Every day, employees and busy on-the-goers turn to vending machines to meet their nutritional needs. But traditional vending machines (filled with sweets, sugary sodas and greasy potato chips) simply don’t meet the preferences of an increasingly health-conscious public.
According to one survey, 70% of Millennials said they prefer snacking throughout the day, as opposed to eating larger meals. Of those, 80% said they look for healthy, balanced bites. Plainly, consumers want healthy and convenient snacks.
The healthy vending industry is perfectly aligned to meet the changing nutritional preferences of busy consumers. The purpose-built Healthy YOU Vending machine vends these sought-after, wholesome snacks, drinks and even entrées.
It Saves Time
Nowadays, it seems we all have one thing in common: we’re busy. Healthy vending makes delicious, healthful and affordable options easily accessible to time-constrained consumers. Whether it’s in a gym, school or office building, your customers will appreciate not having to leave the confines of their facility to grab a nutritious lunch or mid-day snack. Simply put, it’s a time-saving device.
It should come as no surprise that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people eat. According to a survey by the International Food Information Council Foundation (IFIC), 27% of consumers said that they’ve been snacking more. The same number of people say they’re eating healthier than usual.
And when the pandemic ends, the healthy vending industry will continue to be perfectly positioned to offer nutritious and convenient options in schools, gyms and workplaces throughout the country.
Modern, packaged snacks provide real nutritional value. WebMD points out that certain low-sugar snacks can provide important nutrients when you’re on-the-go. These include products from brands like Nature Valley, Clif Bar, Kashi and KIND.
And healthy vending drinks offer a satisfying, hydrating alternative to the likes found in traditional machines. Gone are the days of sugary sodas and chemically-enhanced energy drinks. Some of the most popular healthy vending machine beverages include water, cold coffee, iced tea, non-dairy smoothies and sparkling water.
Not to be forgotten, nutritious entrées and side dishes provide a hearty meal. When there’s no time to go out for lunch, your customers will love the option of filling their bellies with healthy and filling choices right from a vending machine. The Healthy YOU Vending SmartMart Side Vendor is specially designed to fit an assortment of these unique products.
It Offers More Than Healthy Foods and Drinks
From selling headphones at gyms to toiletries in hotels, the Healthy YOU Vending machine is not limited to only offering wholesome snacks, drinks and entrées. The revenue-enhancing capabilities that come with specialized vending machines are endless. And that’s true now more than ever before.
Our optional Wellness Center Side Vendor is positioned to offer travel-sized hand sanitizer, pre-packaged wipes, protective masks, over-the-counter medications, hygiene essentials and other important, personal care products. These items are more important to individual health and wellness than ever before—all made available from the convenience of a vending machine.
It Can Help Encourage Employee Wellness
Employers are realizing the health and productivity benefits of workplace wellness programs. Healthy vending is an effective way to promote a wholesome diet in the workplace. The recent pandemic ushered in even more interest in living healthy lifestyles. With so many of these choices available in a healthy vending machine, it’s a common-sense solution to promoting employee wellness at your place of work.
