Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Sprout Healthy Vending, a national leader in taking the vending industry in a healthy direction at work, school and in the community, welcomes newest operators, Sarah and Jeff Ulander. The Ulander’s will be placing their machines in and around the surrounding areas of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Running and maintaining a business has forever been a goal of the Ulander’s. Sarah states, “We have always had the dream of owning our own business and not ‘working for the man’. Fortunately, Sprout has given us the opportunity to do that by offering a healthy alternative to junk food! Who isn’t concerned with their health?! It is a win-win for us and for our customers in Charlotte.” This will be a passion project for the both of them with the added bonus of getting to work side by side every day. Sarah continues, “It is definitely a team effort. The goal was to be able to work together instead of spending 8-10 hours apart each day. We are an unstoppable team who can do anything we put our minds to.”
Thus far, their experience with the Sprout team has been nothing but positive. Sarah reports, “We couldn’t be more pleased with the Sprout staff; everyone has accepted us into the family as if we had been there with them from the very beginning. It is a great feeling to join a company that has welcomed us with their arms wide open and is so helpful with getting us up and rolling right away.”
Charlotte is an ideal place to get started in and the Ulander’s already see this being a successful concept in their city. “There is no doubt in our mind that we are in the perfect location to do this. Charlotte, North Carolina is considered a healthy city to start with so we are confident that the business will be embraced graciously.”
Ulander continues, “We are beyond excited to get started, we haven’t encountered any other vending businesses that offer what we offer. The level of quality in our all-natural organic foods is top notch and the people of Charlotte will definitely see that.”
Sprout Co-Founder, Chris Wyland sees a bright future for the Ulander’s, “We are thrilled to bring Sarah and Jeff on board. The passion and desire they have is exactly what we look for when considering adding operators to our family. It will also play a large part in the success of their business down the road. I look forward to seeing the positive changes the Ulander’s bring to the town of Charlotte.”
“Futuristically we are looking to own 30+ machines all over the Charlotte and neighboring areas,” Ulander shares. “Who wouldn’t benefit from eating healthier?! This is a convenient way to do so when you’re on the go. It’s an easy solution to help maintain that common New Year’s resolution that everyone makes, the ‘I am going to eat healthy and lose weight this year’ resolution. Ultimately we feel great about helping people obtain their healthy goals and resolutions.”
The Ulander’s state, “Sprout Healthy Vending is a great company, from the front office to the location specialists to all of the operators, they just get it. They know the business; they know the dos and don’ts and the team ensures that their operators are always set up to succeed. We could not be happier!”
