Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Sprout Healthy Vending welcomes newest operator to the family, Corey Buckles. Sprout Healthy Vending is a national leader in taking the vending industry in a healthy direction at work, school and in the community. Buckles will be placing his machines in and around the Greater-Boise, Idaho community, which will extend into the Mountain Home Air Force Base.
No stranger to maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle, Buckles joined the United States Armed Forces prior to 9/11 and was sent on combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan in an Airborne Infantry unit. He has also worked for the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, the Department of State, and an Anti-Poppy force in Afghanistan. Most recently, Buckles just finished working for the Department of State Air Wing doing air transport for the Ambassador and company. With all of this experience under his belt, partnering up with Sprout Healthy Vending was not a tough decision for the Utahan native. “Knowing that I would be able to profit from something I can fully stand behind and feel good about was a driving factor to get involved with Sprout right away. I’ve always wanted to have my own business and this is the perfect solution for me. Furthermore, I love the machine and unique products it has to offer!”
In addition to the overall great concept, a sound business plan, and amazing product selection, Buckles appreciates the hard-working, supportive staff at Sprout. “The Sprout team has been great! From the first phone call I made inquiring about the business to the most recent email I received--it has been a great experience all around!”
“Sprout Healthy Vending is a simple solution to a huge and prevalent problem in America. The problem being: overall obesity rates continuing to climb in the United States. Providing healthy snack and beverage options to our schools, YMCAs, gyms, and offices, Sprout Healthy Vending really will make a difference,” Buckles states.
Looking closer at this major problem, obesity in America has tripled in the past 30 years. And approximately 17% of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are considered obese. “I think the market largely accepts this concept because of this very concern. Sprout addresses this issue head on and consequently people feel really good about this idea when sharing it with others. Also, people always seem so proud to be associated with Sprout and the message of health and wellness.”
Co-Founder Chris Wyland echoes the sentiment, “Just like Corey stated, we know that our concept is going to be widely accepted all over the country due to the drastic increase in obesity rates over the last few decades. We at Sprout have tapped into a market that will have a major positive influence on the overall health of the United States. We, as well as our operators, feel good about what we do and the message we are conveying. Who wouldn’t want to get involved knowing the positive impact it can have on your community and furthermore, the country?”
“I am thrilled to be able to provide these healthier options to the people of Boise. I think there is a huge untapped market for this idea with little to no competition, which is great! From what I’ve seen so far in speaking with locations in my community, everyone absolutely loves the concept and they are excited to get involved,” Buckles shares. “It is a great feeling knowing that at the end of the day I can say I have done my part by contributing to my community. I really feel confident in my success by offering these particular products in my Sprout machines.”
“I know that the community will benefit immensely from this healthy switch. We offer healthy snack and drink options to the public and bottom line is they will feel better about their snacking choices at the end of the day!”
