SAN DIEGO, CA - (NewMediaWire) - November 24, 2015 - (OTCQB: VEND) - Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc., the leading franchisor of healthy-alternative vending machines and micro markets, is partnering with Armed Forces bases across the country to help fight the junk food vending blight and make healthy foods readily available to our servicemen and women.
With more machine installs planned for the coming months, 31 healthy vending machines have already been installed across the country's military bases, including Dobbins Air Force Base in Georgia, Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming. Fresh Healthy Vending machines give the men and women of America's Armed Forces a better way to get healthy snacks and beverages when they're on duty for America or on-the-go. Other bases with Fresh Healthy Vending machines include Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma, Moody Air Force Base in Georgia, the Maryland National Guard Base in Maryland, and Selfridge National Guard Base in Michigan.
"Oftentimes bases are isolated and food choices are limited," says Fresh Franchisee Rick Haughey of Marietta, Georgia. "The members of our United States Military are expected to be in top form physically, so it's the very least we can do to provide them with convenient healthy alternatives to typical snack fare as they work so hard to serve and protect our country."
Fresh Healthy Vending has historically focused on providing the very best nutrition options in locations such as hospitals, corporations, schools, college campuses and community centers in addition to Military bases.
"Providing healthy food alternatives to those who serve this country is very important to us," says Fresh Healthy Vending Chairman Nick Yates. "These women and men bravely provide freedoms on our behalf and we at Fresh are proud to be able to give back to the country's military in any way we can."
Fresh Healthy Vending has a highly qualified team of in-house, dedicated health and wellness ambassadors who are tasked with securing high traffic, high demand locations for its franchisees' healthy vending machines. The Company's healthy vending machines and micro markets can be found at over 3,000 locations across the United States.
