We all struggle to eat right, and with so many American's losing the battle of the bulge - many suffering from Type II diabetes or cardiac woes -- because of unhealthy eating habits, we couldn't think of a better time to join the fight against obesity and poor nutrition.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 27, 2008
The nation's foremost meal replacement program, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating, opens today in Kansas City and will serve the greater Kansas City area, western Missouri and all of Kansas, announced Seattle Sutton, founder of Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating. Meal orders can be placed now by phone (1-800-442-3438) or through the Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating website.
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating is a blend of science-based nutrition and portion control. The company serves fresh, well-balanced, delicious meals from a five-week rotating menu based on food-science guidelines. The company carefully monitors health and nutrition research and makes adjustments as necessary.
The meals are low-fat, low cholesterol, sodium restricted, zero trans fat and DO NOT contain hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, food dyes, harmful additives or harmful preservatives. Customers can either pick-up their meals from a near-by distributor location or have them delivered to their home or office twice each week. Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating disdains gimmicks. The meals are freshly prepared, and many include fresh fruit and salad.
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating's Kansas City franchise is owned by Sue Herrin and Darryl Vennard. The wife-husband team sold more than $50 million of wine during their 20 year-tenure in the high-end fine wine business. Meeting Seattle Sutton and learning about her mission and business inspired Herrin and Vennard to make a career change.
"Seattle Sutton has made a great difference in so many people's lives," explained Vennard. "This really attracted Sue and me to the business. After spending time with Seattle, learning about her standards, reading testimonials of her clients and experiencing first-hand her passion for helping people to eat healthfully, we knew she was someone with whom we wanted to work."
Added Herrin: "We all struggle to eat right, and with so many American's losing the battle of the bulge - many suffering from Type II diabetes or cardiac woes -- because of unhealthy eating habits, we couldn't think of a better time to join the fight against obesity and poor nutrition."
Founder and CEO Seattle Sutton, R.N., BSN, praised the new franchisees. "We're very careful--some would say picky--about awarding franchises because we have be sure our standards will be met. After getting to know Sue and Darryl, I'm so glad to be able to work with them. They share our mission and have an incredible devotion to customer service and conducting business in the right way. I know they will exceed our expectations."
Though only a few will be selected, Vennard and Herrin are interviewing potential distributors.
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating is the front-runner in science-based Home Meal Replacement. Other replacement companies run the gamut from gourmet to powder. Customers respond, because home meal replacement is one of the fastest-growing segments of the food industry, with sales of over $1 billion per year.
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating follows a simple format. Twenty-one meals per week are provided each customer, who selects either a 1,200 or 2,000 calorie per day meal-plan option. Another feature that sets these meals apart from other home delivery plans is that Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating uses fresh fruit and vegetables, and features healthy renditions of many popular dishes, such as pizza, oven fried chicken, and chili. The portion controlled menu also provides variety since it never repeats the same meal within a five-week period.
In addition to furthering weight loss, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating is very helpful for Type II diabetics--many of whom reduce or eliminate their need for medication while on the program--and for cardiac patients, people with eating disorders, seniors, nursing mothers, and other adults who want or need the convenience of not having to prepare meals.
The cost of 21 meals is roughly $129. Unlike other meal replacement programs, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating customers pay on a weekly basis rather than months in advance.
The Kansas City franchise will create 35 to 50 new jobs in the KC area over the next two years. The first distribution location will open in early July, with several more to follow almost immediately.
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating was founded by Seattle Sutton, a registered nurse, in 1985 and began franchising in 1996. The Kansas City franchise is the second franchise granted by Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating in the last three years. Today, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating has approximately 200 distributor locations in seven states. Last year, the Company did more than $30 million in business.
