  1. New Healthy Vending business

    Sorry, don't have that video. But I'd sure like to see it if you find it.
  2. Cold Food

    Nope, no chocolate in my "healthy" machines?
  3. Cold Food

    I sell Greek yogurts, Oh Snap! Pickles, Sabra hummus and pretzel cups, Sargento Balanced Breaks (cheese/nuts/cranberries) in my combo machines. All my regular snacks get refrigerated and are fine with the temperature.
  4. Chip Card Reader

    I'm waiting on my first chip reader from Nayax right now. Though my guy told me that they have the hardware, but not the software yet. So the chip reader won't actually be able to be used yet.
  5. Healthy for You/Breakfast Items?

    I sell Belvita breakfast bars and Nature Valley almond biscuits, mostly to high school students.
  6. I use Nayax too, but I don't think I use it to its full capabilities. What management tools do you use nvb? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Healthy vending?

    Skinny Pop, Clif bars, Kettle brand Chips, Veggie Straws, trail mix, BuzzStrong cookies, GoGo Squeez applesauce, granola bars, Snack Factory pretzel crisps. All sell in my 'healthy' machines and have long shelf life. A crazy thing that has taken off in my best selling YMCA machine is Oh Snap! Pickle bites, but they must be refrigerated.

  8. New Machine company - anybody know them?

    I have 8 Jofemar machines that were from a HUMAN healthy franchise. They are great machines, easy to service and operate and very few misvends. Ive only had 1 real problem (coin mech) and it was easy to order parts online. Have any of you naysayers actually seen or used a Jofemar machine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Newbie

    I own 8 healthy vending machines. I bought them from a former HUMAN healthy vending franchisee who wanted out, not because the route was doing poorly. They are all Jofemar combo machines, from Spain (but have offices in Miami.) My locations are all YMCAs and schools and are the exclusive snack and (and all but 1) drink choices at the location. I like to call my products 'healthier' as I am not selling all fruits and vegetables, but snacks with whole grains, less sugar and fat, no HFCS, etc. Sales are good but I believe you have to find the right location. Kids in school are still going to be hungry, so long as my snacks are tasty they will buy them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. School healthy snack

    I have 5 machines in schools. Here are some of my top sellers: skinny pop, BuzzStrong cookies, pop corners, popchips, Nature Valley Oat&Honey granola bars, Gogo squeez applesauce, Kettle Baked 100cal chips, Nature's Bakery fig bars and brownies. If you are doing drinks, water, welch's 100% juice 10oz, Izze, G2 (HS only), 100% juice boxes, Kirkland chocolate milk. I buy all from Costco, Sam's and Amazon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I bought a route of 8 healthy machines (former HUMAN franchise, Jofemar machines) placed in YMCAs and schools. They gross ~ $40-45k per year, I've had them for 7 months and am a 1 woman shop operating out of my home. I paid $32k, which I feel was a very fair price. I think $140k is way too high.

  12. Just got back....

    I do not have any coil machines. I bought 8 Jofemar machines from a former HUMAN healthy franchisee. I have no experience with coils, but I love the conveyors/pushers. My machines also have the elevator product delivery with sensors, so I almost never have misvends. Occasionally products fall below the elevator, but the customer is not charged if the product doesn't make it into the delivery bin. The other great feature is that I can easily change the width of the individual rows. For example, each tray can hold 3 rows of chips, 6 rows of water or 8 rows of candy/granola bars, or any combination of them all. And I can change the clips on the conveyer for depth. 8 fat bags of chips, 14 skinnier snacks, or up to 28 cookies or fruit snacks. And, of course, the trays are easy to adjust, so I can have tall Gatorade bottles in one tray, and short granola bars in the next and not have a lot of wasted space. Machines are refrigerated, so I can sell drinks, snacks and things like yogurt, hummus and cheese (I am a healthy vending business[emoji1]) all in one. Not sure if that all makes sense. Here's a picture of one of my machines, it is in a busy YMCA and sits next to 4 drink machines (water, soda, Gatorade, tea)that are not mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just got back....

    Has a lot of the features my Jofemar machines have. Jofemar is based in Spain and has offices in Miami, I haven't had any problems getting parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Healthy vending

    Where are your machines placed? I own 8 HUMAN healthy vending machines that I purchased from a former franchisee. My machines are at schools and YMCAs and are doing pretty well.
  15. YMCA

    I have machines in 3 YMCAs, 2 are exclusive snack and drinks, 3rd is snacks only as Pepsi has 4 drink machines (this Y has 15,000+ members!) All snacks are healthier, like mentioned above, drinks are G2 Gatorade, water, Vitamin Water Zero, juice boxes, etc. They are definitely worthwhile accounts, the 2 smaller Ys do about $150/wk, the bigger does $250/wk.
