Operator Mary Jo Tompkins Embraces New Business Opportunity With A Healthy Living Connection

Sprout Healthy Vending, a national leader in taking the vending industry in a healthy direction at work, school and in the community, announces expansion into Grand Junction, Colorado with newest operator Mary Jo Tompkins.

Like many other operators, Tompkins is driven by her own yearning to maintain a healthy lifestyle. “I was highly motivated to become a Sprout Healthy Vending Operator due to a burning desire to regain control of my own future—especially in today's crazy financial environment. I lead a healthy lifestyle and I eat health food daily, so Sprout was a perfect match for me,” she said.

Tompkins’ enthusiasm spread to her husband after he experienced some serious health issues a few years back. Tompkins explains, “My husband had Atrial Fibrillation (A-fib) several years ago, so we immediately emptied our kitchen and adjusted our menu to healthy and organic products. We wanted to try altering our food before going the extreme route with an invasive procedure. After some time of leading this new lifestyle, his health was on the mend. Today, his A-fib is gone and he does not need to take any medications but he does keep up with the healthy regimen.” Tompkins believes that the change in diet has substantially helped her husband.

When looking for the right company to join, Tompkins wanted to be supported by a great staff of people. After speaking with various people from the Sprout team she knew she didn’t have to look any further. “The Sprout staff from the very beginning has been excellent and I don't take that lightly,” she said. “The response time and the professional and personable manner taken with all my communications was a deciding factor for me to partner with Sprout Healthy Vending over the other companies out there.”

Not only does the team make Tompkins feel good about coming on-board, but she is just as excited about offering the product to her community because she knows they will benefit tremendously. “The potential locations I’ve been in touch with in my territory are just as excited as I am to see Sprout coming to the area,” adds Tompkins. “I am 100 percent sure it will be accepted with great satisfaction and appreciation since the community has been looking for something like this.”

According to Tompkins, “Grand Junction is a very 'outdoorsy', active, healthy, forward-thinking community. The city is always looking to the future and cares about watching the youth grow into healthy adults. I have no doubt this concept will be welcomed and sought after once it is introduced to locations.”

“We are thrilled to have Mary Jo come on board. She is someone that thinks of not only of the ‘now,’ but also the future,” Sprout Co-founder Christopher Wyland said. “She understands that Sprout Healthy Vending is not just about securing the best vending locations, but, more importantly, it’s about making long-lasting lifestyle changes to the communities you come across. We are excited to see her enthusiasm, and look forward to continuing on this journey with her.”
