HUMAN stands for "Helping Unite Mankind And Nutrition" and we started the Healthy Vending Industry back in 2003. We're looking for top 10% entrepreneurs to "crush it" with their own quickly growing, ridiculously fun, incredibly fulfilling, health & nutrition franchise. In short, we help entrepreneurs launch and grow their own healthy vending businesses so they can make money, help people, and become truly fulfilled.
- Massive Market. Did you know there are over 5 million vending machines in the U.S. and over 13,000 vending operators? The industry generated over $20B in revenue in 2010. It's big.
- Proven Business Model.Vending has been around for hundreds of years. It's a proven business model that works.
- Lower Start-Up Costs. Starting a vending business costs a fraction of what it takes to start a "brick and mortar" business.
- Simple to Scale. You can grow your business one machine at a time or in lots of 10. The choice is yours. Compare this to growing a brick and mortar business and you'll see that growing your vending business is a lot simpler and less capital intensive.
- Lower Risk. In a "brick and mortar" business, you open up shop and hope for people to walk through your doors. In a vending business, you find where people convene and you place a machine in front of them. Completely different approach.
Why "Healthy" Vending?
- Obesity Crisis. Did you know that over 2/3 of adults and 1/3 of kids are overweight or obese? Our president has called it "...one of the most urgent health issues facing the country" and it's costing our healthcare system over $150B annually.
- Massive Void. There are over 5 million vending machines in the U.S. and only 2000 of them offer 100% healthy vending items.
- Huge Demand. Look at the explosive growth of Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and the entire healthy food industry. There's a huge demand for healthy products and the traditional vending industry has been ignoring it.
