If you’re an entrepreneur looking for a great green business opportunity or the owner of an existing business looking for an employee benefit that might actually help boost productivity, you might want to consider healthy vending machines.
According to the Center for Disease Control, one in every three American adults is obese, which has a substantial impact on employee absenteeism – not to mention your company’s employee health care premiums.
However, savvy employers in West Palm Beach and elsewhere are beginning to realize the potential benefit of including healthy snacks in workplace vending machines. In fact, healthy snacks now represent $30 billion in annual sales, according to Mintel Research.
Replacing fatty chips, candy bars and donuts in your company’s break room, kitchen or employee lounge with healthier choices – such as organic coffee, fresh fruit and juices, natural drinks and yogurts, smoothies, and healthy snacks like granola bars and baked chips – could lead to higher productivity and even increase employee retention.
At the same time, entrepreneurs can profit by starting a vending machine franchise and furnishing these dispensers to numerous commercial customers in Palm Beach County and the rest of South Florida. One company that facilitates this business opportunity nationwide is Fresh Healthy Vending. For more information about this vendor, their products and franchise opportunity, click here.
Employee performance, the cost of health insurance and absenteeism are all related in some way to what your employees eat and drink. That being the case, switching to healthy vending machines could improve your company’s bottom line. It’s certainly something to think about.
