Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Power-Up ENERGY (http://www.power-upenergy.com) announces it has reached an agreement with Vroom Foods, Inc. (http://www.vroomfoods.com) to become the exclusive U.S. distributor of Buzz Bite Chocolate Energy Chews to the single serve bulk vending channel. In 2004 Vroom Foods created the energy chew category and remains committed to supporting its bulk vending partners. Vroom Foods understands that Buzz Bites are a natural product for bulk vendors and wishes to support all bulk vendors who wish to be a part of the explosive energy vending category. Buzz Bite Energy Chews come in Chocolate and Mint Chocolate flavors and contain roughly the caffeine equivalent as one energy shot, one energy drink or a cup of coffee, all in one little energy chew that is both affordable and portable.
"Buzz Bites are a perfect product for bulk vendors of all machine types," says Keith Woodard, President of Power-Up ENERGY. "Buzz Bites can be capsulated in 1.1" or 2" capsules and vended from any bulk vending machine with a 1" or 2" product wheel" says Woodard. "Buzz Bite Energy Chews was the first energy product available to bulk vendors in the energy category and is the fastest growing segment of retail sales" says Woodard. According to industry resources, there are 10,000 bulk vendors in the U.S., but it is estimated that there are as many as 2 million home business vendors who have placed vending machines. New bulk vending machines can be purchased for $50-$75 and used machines can often be found online for as low as $25. A low cost machine combined with the right product can pay for itself in a couple of months," says Woodard. Keith Woodard is counting on energy chews to become as popular as energy shots have recently become. "First we had coffee, then energy drinks, followed by energy shots and now energy chews," says Keith Woodard, "Buzz Bites have roughly the equivalent energy of the leading selling energy shot or energy drink, without the off taste or the inconvenience of a liquid, at about 1/6th the cost; it makes sense for consumers and vendors."
Vroom Foods also sees strong growth in the bulk vending market. "This is the first product available to bulk vendors that can be vended in any bulk vending machine without the requirement of buying into a business opportunity-like program," says Jason Kensey, Founder and CEO of Vroom Foods. "For a few hundred dollars one can buy a few machines and product to test with their other bulk vending machines at existing locations". "We have already seen strong vending sales in businesses, workforce lunchrooms, colleges, restaurants, gyms, and retail locations. With Power-Up Energy as our distributor we can reach even more customers through the bulk vending channel. For only 50 cents consumers can purchase the same energy as one energy shot, drink or cup of coffee from any bulk vending machine."
