Producers from The Food Network’s popular show “The Secret Life Of” have confirmed that the episode on vending will air May 21 at 10 p.m., National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) president and CEO Richard M. Geerdes, NCE, announced in April.

At the 2006 National Expo a team of network producers spent the day taping footage that will make up a substantial portion of the episode. In addition to the expo, producers said the show will include a segment on the history of vending as well as interesting vending machines in other countries. The episode also covers a wide array of “better for you” products currently available in vending machines.
 
In discussing the episode Geerdes said, “When this episode airs it will help change the way that people view our industry. Most people have no idea that a vending machine can dispense more than simple snacks, and this episode will show viewers the convenience our industry delivers to help make people’s lives easier. This feature on our industry will reach almost a hundred million viewers who will see a new side to vending.”

The Food Network ranks first among ad-supported cable networks on year-to-year subscriber growth and first among food websites.

“People need to understand that our industry delivers the freshest products possible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and this show will help convey those messages,” said Geerdes.
