Bananas, fresh cut vegetables and fruit…in a vending machine? Today, this is possible thanks to the emergence of healthy snacking companies that are eliminating Doritos and Coke (with little to no nutritional value) to bring all natural and organic snacks and beverages to locations across the country. Vend Natural, Inc., today’s fastest-growing healthy snacking company, is expanding its operations into the Dallas-Fort Worth market.

It is time to take a stand against junk food. The Dallas-Fort Worth community deserves access to healthy snacks and beverages, even when they are on the go.

Vend Natural, Inc., today’s fastest-growing healthy snacking company, is expanding its operations into Texas and has identified Dallas-Fort Worth as the next exciting market area for placement of the company’s state of the art healthy vending machines. The company is putting out a call to all schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and other locations seeking to transform how the community snacks. Many of today’s organizational leaders responsible for the health of their employees, students and patients, are launching wellness initiatives that include looking closely at the nutritional value of the snacks and beverages offered on their premises.

Vend Natural, founded by company CEO Gil Sanchez, was formed to address the declining health of our nation and skyrocketing teenage obesity rates by providing healthier snacking alternatives to schools, hospitals and businesses. The company’s mission is to support improved eating practices by offering healthy products that are easily accessible and affordable to everyone.

“Dallas-Fort Worth is the perfect place to welcome healthy snacking alternatives in convenience eating,” said William H. Carpenter, Jr., Vend Natural President. Vend Natural’s healthy snack machines, with their wide assortment of all natural, organic beverages and snacks, offer the right alternative to traditional high-fat, low nutritional value snacks in hospitals, schools and other public venues.” Carpenter continued, “We expect strong demand for our healthy snack machines across the Dallas-Fort Worth area as others hear about the Vend Natural solution. “

Vend Natural CEO Gil Sanchez says, “Our partner locations are smart, health-conscious leaders who believe in the mission of providing healthy snacking alternatives.” He continued, “We know that Dallas-Fort Worth will be a terrific market for our business. We hope to be noticed by many organizations that will join with us in leading the healthy snacking revolution so that the community never has to trade health for convenience.”

Vend Natural is the only healthy snacking company in the country that not only partners with business owners coast to coast, but also owns and operates its own machines on the west and east coasts. This enables the company to test new equipment and products before full roll-out and provide the most relevant training and customer service operation for its distributors. “We don’t just ‘sell’ the business, we are IN the business, which makes us significantly more knowledgeable about what works and what doesn’t,” said Mr. Carpenter.
