Should I Invest in a Healthy Vending Franchise?

healthy for you vending reviewsIf you’re considering buying a healthy vending franchise from companies like Healthy You, Healthier 4U, or Naturals2Go, I have a few words of caution before you decide.

I have received too many calls and complaints lately from adventurous entrepreneurs who have heard the great sales pitches from the various business-in-a-box vending franchises that all claim to offer you a world of support to start up your business, a big warranty on the machines, locations for the machines, accounting software and the latest and greatest vending machines on the market.  Unfortunately, after you’ve listened to them for a few hours and checked their references, you realize that the price is quite exorbitant.

Healthy Vending Reviews And Advice

I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to spend $100,000+ to get great insider secrets and a high quality healthy vending machine.  At the Discount Vending Store, we have high quality healthy vending machines for sale at half the price of the Franchisers, and many times we are selling the exact same machine which they offer!

All of the healthy vending machines we sell will accept credit and mobile payments, have beautiful healthy graphics on them, they will vend healthy drinks, snacks and entrees, and yes they will track all of your inventory remotely too.

You will not find a better deal anywhere! We provide you with everything you need to know to help you get up and running, and succeed in the healthy vending market. You need training? We provide it. You need tech support and a warranty?  We certainly include that also.

I don’t want to hear any more complaints from regretful healthy franchise business owners.  To help our customers succeed in the Healthy Vending Business, we will customize the machines inside and out.  That means we will customize the entire exterior vinyl wrap for you and your customers.  We will also change out the coils and shelves inside the machine to accept more or less drinks or snacks as needed by your customers.

We’ve even had customers completely customize the interior coil systems to handle t-shirts!

If you’re reading this article, then you’re the kind of entrepreneur that does their due diligence. You want to understand the details and nuance of this industry, and the differences between what’s being offered.

We love people like you. Discerning, inquisitive people make the best long-term customers for The Discount Vending Store. Why? Because we offer the best machines in the industry.

We know you’ll agree.

Vending Machine Franchise Success Depends On Location, Location, Location (and a couple more factors)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the number one thing you need to succeed in vending is a good location.  The second is a sharp looking, reliable machine.  If you’re buying into one of the big box franchises for any other reason, then you’re a sucker.  Sure they will offer you a lot of extra fluff but it’s just not worth the money. Many franchises do offer locations as part of their package or you can upgrade for an additional $1,000 or so.  Please be very careful to not overpay for a location that is no good. I have personally heard from too many good people who were scammed by the company’s vending locator. Be sure to check their reviews and ratings, and don’t trust their referrals they send you because they will pay them to talk to you.  Further, you don’t have to be part of a franchise to get obtain good locations. There are plenty of good independent vending locators that you can hire, or you can do it yourself.

Most franchises also offer a warranty on the healthy vending combination machines and free phone support as well.  Let me just say that a warranty is only as good as the company that’s backing it up.  What are the chances that a one year old company will be around to honor their extended warranty? Many healthy vending franchises never live to see their warranties expire so please be very cautious of this. Recently we’ve been seeing companies offer a “lifetime warranty”, but be sure to read the fine print.  By “lifetime warranty”, some companies are only offering 50% off parts after the first year and then they raise their prices by two-fold in order to cover the 50% discount!

If you are new to vending or are looking into the Healthy Vending Business, then I can see how you might feel intimidated to do this alone. It sounds reassuring to spend thousands of dollars to “get the right education” before jumping into the business.  This is exactly how the franchisors wants you to feel. Starting a healthy vending business is not hard and at The Discount Vending Store we can help you succeed by providing you with a world of knowledge, on-site training on our machines, and protecting your pocket book at the same time.  Check out our blog for more secrets to success in vending or call us at 855-200-VEND(8363) and we’ll be happy to help.
