New vending machines put stop to unhealthy snacks | Health
(WMC-TV) – One vending machine company is doing its part to tackle the problem of obesity. Fresh Healthy Vending Café is giving businesses in the Mid-South the opportunity to offer healthier snacks in their facility. Amy Israel and William Pollack have purchased the healthy vending franchise and are in the process of selecting locations in the Memphis area for the machines.
This vending company started in 2010 and is based out of San Diego. Fresh Healthy Vending is recreating the idea of a typical vending machine by filling them with healthy, natural and organic food and beverage options. They call it the “future of vending.”
These vending machines of the future will sell yogurt, fresh fruits and vegetables, and a variety of other nutritious options as well as a healthy vending café with espresso and cappuccinos with whole organic beans
In addition to other locations in the Mid-South, Union University’s Germantown campus will feature these new machines.
