Fresh Healthy Vending expands in Alabama
March 17, 2011, Huntsville, AL. – Fresh Healthy Vending, has announced the addition of Steve Bump as its new franchisee for Huntsville, AL.
Bump is installing Fresh Healthy Vending machines in the following locations: Huntsville Utilities (3 machines), Huntsville Botanical Gardens, Early Works Museum, Empire Fitness (2 machines), Huntsville YMCA SE and the Huntsville YMCA Downtown.
"As a parent of two active kids, I liked the thought of having healthier vending options at local businesses and potentially in our schools,” said Bump. “Today's typical vending machines are full of candy bars, soda and fried potato chips and such. I wanted to provide choices that might include fruit snacks, gluten-free snacks and organic snacks, fruit chips and juices, smoothies, protein shakes and even yogurts…in other words, just a better choice for what we put into our bodies.”
Since launching its nationwide healthy vending initiative in 2010, Fresh Healthy Vending has grown to almost 400 locations nationwide.
"The response to our healthy menus in the machines has been fantastic and we have received emails and calls from employees, students and HR personnel supporting Fresh Healthy Vending's efforts," noted Jolly Backer, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending.
