For healthy snacks and drinks, product prices retail at between $0.75 cents and $3.00 per item. The mark-up on each product is usually between 60% and 100%. The location is typically paid 15% of the net profit on each item and this commission is typically paid monthly to each location.

For coffee beverages, products retail from $1.00 to $2.50. Cost of each product sold (cup and consumable) is approximately $0.30. The mark-up on each product is usually between 300% and 500%.

How many hours per week will it take me to run a vending franchise?

This depends on how many Fresh healthy vending machines you are operating and how many products you sell from each machine. It is recommended that you visit each healthy vending Machine at least once every 2-3 days and each healthy vending Café at least once every 2 days for general maintenance. Each visit would generally take approximately 15-30 minutes. Remote monitoring software will inform you when you need to visit each location as well as prepare you for which products to take.

Does the Fresh Vending franchise require employees?

You can either service the machines yourself or hire an employee. It’s completely up to you. Wow. That is a choice most of us would like to be able to make: no employees!

Once you get to 30 machines or more you will likely require some help, but not until then. This is the most flexible business opportunity in the franchise world today.

Can I make this a family business?

Sure! Many of our franchisees get the whole family involved with developing vending business. It is up to you, but a great flexible business allows you the freedom to keep it in the family.
