It’s not often that two industries happen to align perfectly. But the health and wellness industry pairs with the vending machine world in a way that is practically seamless. For entrepreneurs, it’s an ideal business opportunity, and the timing couldn’t be better. Here’s why:
You’ve probably noticed that healthy eating is more popular now than it was, say, two decades ago. With the huge societal push toward healthier diets, not to mention all kinds of niche dietary choices like organic foods, specialized diets, gluten-free foods, veganism, and vegetarianism, etc., healthy vending is situated in the perfect place at the perfect time.
Younger buyers are opting for convenience over cost.
With the busy, on-the-go lifestyles of the modern world, people are choosing convenience over cost — especially younger consumers. To put it simply, people don’t mind paying a little more in order to get something fast, healthy, and convenient. And that’s what the world of healthy vending is all about.
People still need vending machines.
It’s easy to think that people would be using vending machines less now that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed much about our daily lives. But the truth is that people still need and are using vending machines, especially as things start to reopen and people head back to the office. It’s all about strategic placement — if your machines are placed in areas where there’s a lot of foot traffic, you’ll get results, pandemic, or no pandemic.
Another reason why the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t decimated vending sales is that vending machines actually provide a significant advantage when trying to avoid interacting directly with other people: contactless service. All one has to do is make their selection on the keypad, and they’ve got ready-to-eat food without ever interacting with anyone else. Lots of people are looking for that right now!
You’ll make a lasting difference.
Beyond all of the financial and marketing reasons that vending is the perfect business opportunity right now, there’s one other important reason: you’ll be helping people and families to eat healthier and live better lives.
