How much will it cost my company?
Our Healthy Snack Zone Vending Machines are provided at absolutely NO cost to your business. In fact, not only do we provide the machine, we service and stock it on a regular basis. Your company may even be eligible for a commission from the profits generated each month.
Who services and stocks the vending machines?
We will monitor, stock and service the machine as often is necessary. Each of our operators are well trained to ensure that the quality of service provided is far superior to anything you may have experienced before with other machines. We are local residents of your community and are therefore eager to share our commitment to offering healthy products to your employees/customers/students/guests.
Who chooses the snacks and beverages?
You do. Your company can be instrumental in selecting the products that are offered to your employees and customers. We believe it is important to provide a good variety of healthy products in order to satisfy everyone. We initially fill the machine with the most popular healthy products selling in our area. Later, we will meet with you to discuss changes to the selections and your suggestions – and may offer some free product sampling events as well.
How often is the Healthy Snack Zone Box restocked?
It differs with how fast products are sold. The average is about once a week for restocking. Each machine is equipped with wireless remote monitoring technology so we know if a product selection is running low. If it is determined that it needs to be serviced more often than once each week, we can set up a more frequent service schedule.
Can our company get a commission on the products that are sold?
Your company may be eligible to receive commissions from the profits generated by the machine each month. Please talk with us about this option
How experienced is Healthy Snack Zone as a vending company?
We are health coaches and fitness freaks who have gone through extensive training in several areas, including the operation and maintenance of Snack Box Machines, nutritional guidelines, product management, inventory control, product sampling, and consumer relations. And the main thing is customer service – we are here to serve you and the users of our machine.
How many machines can you provide our business?
This depends on several factors. First we need to evaluate the volume of foot traffic on a daily basis. Next, we need to consider if there is competition from other vending machines located in your business if you have any. If these two factors confirm there’s enough demand for an additional machine, we will be happy to supply one to your business. Some locations such as large schools, businesses, colleges, etc. may have enough demand for multiple machines.
What types of healthy products will be stocked in your machines?
The healthy products we provide are all national name brand items. These are the same products you can find on the shelves of your local health food grocers such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and other fine health food stores and distributors. Many of these healthier products are now going mainstream and can be found on the shelves of traditional grocery stores and even convenience stores. Not only do the products we offer provide healthier alternatives, they also taste great while providing sustainable energy to your busy day.
If we have a contract with another vendor, can we still receive a healthy vending machine?
Depending on your contract, many contracts are exclusive only to “junk food” vending products (e.g. Snickers, Coca Cola, etc.). Therefore, this doesn’t cause an issue as we can create menu plans of non-competing items to those in a different machine. The reality is that many vending companies claim they can provide healthier options, but very few do.
Do we have to sign an agreement?
We ask that you sign a basic agreement that outlines the relationship between your location and us – just so everyone is comfortable. This contract has no time commitment. It basically states that we will be responsible for keeping the machine stocked and maintained.
