Misconceptions of the Healthy Vending Machines Business

STOP LISTENING TO ALL THAT CHATTER!  THE HEALTHY VENDING MACHINES BUSINESS PROVIDES AFFORDABLE, HEALTHY PRODUCTS TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

Two major misconceptions that I seem to be hearing often are, one, “healthy products are bland and tasteless, and two, the products in healthy vending machines are just a little bit healthier than those other vending machines – so they’re not worth buying.”

MISCONCEPTION #1:  PRODUCTS IN HEALTHY VENDING MACHINES ARE TOO EXPENSIVE

As far as the cost of healthy products is concerned, it is a misconception that you will have to see to believe.  It costs $1.75 for a coke at the coca-cola vending machine at CSUN (Cal State University, Northridge).  It costs the same for a Dasani water, which as we know is owned by coca-cola – and, its freakin’ filtered water!

Now, let’s switch out the coke machine for one of those healthy vending machines and now my choices are healthy energy drinks, premium water (Fiji, Evian, etc.), and vitamin-infused water (vitamin water) all for around 2 dollars.  Hands-down the selection is better, and $0.25 more, for a healthier, better tasting product – “I choose Vitamin Water!”  After all, how much is your health worth?

The bottom line here is that healthy products are no longer as expensive to produce because of their relatively recent and exponential rise to popularity.  To us, the customers, that means MONEY SAVED.  And, it’s also good news for vending operators as they are now able to compete with their junk food dispensing counterparts.  I don’t know about you guys, but that definitely makes me happy.

MISCONCEPTION #2:  THE STUFF THAT COMES OUT OF HEALTHY VENDING MACHINES IS TASTELESS AND BLAND?      WARNING:  SNACK PORN COMING UP

Does this look bland to you?

Beef and Veggie Goodness! MMMMmmm …
Best Chips Everrrrrr!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Healthy vending machines vend all kinds of great tasting snacks and drinks.  From energy bars to water from one of the last  remaining artesian aquifers in the world (Fiji) to hot healthy food.  Stop listening to people who knock healthy food or snacks – chances are they’re stereotyping based on a bad experience.  Just point them in the direction of the nearest healthy vending machine and tell them to try again!
