If you’ve been looking for a new business opportunity that you can get started with only a small investment, doesn’t require much capital, has low overhead and can be done at multiple locations, there’s a simple solution. How about starting a healthy vending machine business?

Why Invest in Vending Machines?

Whether you’re looking to fully invest in running your own company, or looking for a snack-filled side hustle, consider these facts:

  • 100 million Americans will use one of seven million vending machines each day.
  • Vending machines average over $7 billion a year in sales.
  • Over $64 million a year in profits are generated by the snack and vending machine industry.

Vending machines are found everywhere throughout the country, and while you probably think of chips and candy when it comes to the convenience of a vending machine, the future is with healthier options-and the future is now.

The Desire for Healthier Food Options

According to one survey, healthier snacks outsell traditional snack foods by 300 percent, which is good news considering snacking on junk food can lead to various health issues such as obesity, heart diseases, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Due to growing health concerns related to snacking, consumers are now more inclined toward healthy eating habits, which is creating a surge in demand for healthier options. In fact, in a survey from L.E.K. Consulting, 93 percent of consumers want to eat healthy at least some of the time, with 63 percent trying to eat healthy most or all of the time.

The solution?

A vending machine that helps meet all of these needs.

Starting a Healthy Vending Business

With vending franchises, you have a built-in solution to many of the inherent risks of starting a company from scratch or buying an existing business, and you don’t need experience to be successful. This is the main reason franchises have been described as “the greatest business model ever created.”

Today, companies like HealthyYOU Vending offer all the benefits of a franchise without any of the drawbacks, like significant overhead, franchise fees and royalty payouts. These low-cost franchises have no hidden expenses, no building to buy, lease or build, no employees to hire and no continued royalties.

You can truly be an entrepreneur, and with no geographic restrictions, you can pursue your American dream wherever you want to go, with as many vending machines as you want to operate. There’s even a location acquisition team to assist you in finding placement opportunities for your machines and 90 percent of the secured locations don’t require any commissions.

On top of that, you’re helping people truly make healthy choices and an investment in their overall well-being.

The Future of Vending

Given the country’s desire for healthy options-and convenience-the healthy vending business is going to continue to grow and expand exponentially. Why not be a part of the solution and maximize your opportunity. It doesn’t require anything more than some initial startup costs and what every startup business requires-some education, hard work and a strong motivation to succeed.
