Franchisee Wade Bergner aims to provide healthier, fresher options to dance students and teachers.
Fresh Healthy Vending, the leading healthy vending machine company in the United States, has expanded into Red Wing's Fusion Dance studio, providing teachers and students with a selection of healthy snacks such as yogurts, smoothies, fruit, vegetables, granola bars, baked chips and natural sodas at the touch of a button.
"Fusion Dance is excited to offer Fresh Health Vending to our dancers, staff and guests. In the past, we have offered typical vending at our studio, but we have always talked about ways to provide a healthier alternative," says Mary Plein, owner of Fusion Dance. "Dancers are athletes, so they must eat for energy, strength and stamina. Because dancers are performing at the top of their abilities, proper nutrition and fueling of the body is essential. We are pleased to offer fresh and healthy choices for our students."
Wade Bergner purchased the vending machine franchise rights from San Diego-based Fresh Healthy Vending, which offers healthier vending machine snacks as an alternative to traditional vending machine junk food of sugary drinks and snacks. Inspired to better his own community, Mr. Bergner is dedicated to improving access to healthier snack options for the dance studio. "I want to do my part to help change the perception of healthy food and vending machines," explains Mr. Bergner.
Fresh Healthy Vending touts its vending products as a means to keep minds and bodies in better shape. Their mission is to help eliminate junk food, which is associated with causing obesity, higher absenteeism and higher medical insurance rates.
"These vending machines are a great way to offer the community healthier food options tailored to their dietary needs," said Dan Negroni, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending. "Teaching kids the importance of eating healthfully and prompting them to make more nutritious food choices is something we believe is critical, especially considering the rise in childhood obesity. We are happy to see the community taking the necessary steps to safeguard their children and promote healthful living."
The Fresh Healthy Vending machine launching at Fusion Dance is one of the 1,700 locations throughout North America, with machines in office break rooms, school campuses, shopping malls, hospitals and more. In addition to the healthier vending machine snacks and beverages, Fresh Healthy Vending also produces the Fresh Healthy Cafe, a vending machine that distributes gourmet organic coffee drinks together with their signature healthy snack options. As of August 2012, Fresh Healthy Vending has more than 150 franchises.
