Industry-First Platform & Technology
HUMAN is now offering its franchisees an entire platform of potential revenue opportunities and avenues to materialize its goal to make “Easy Nutrition Everywhere.” For example, HUMAN is the first healthy vending company to bring nutrition activism to the corporate world with its new healthy micromarkets. HUMAN’s healthy micro-markets are self-serve natural foods stores integrated seamlessly into an office space. Free to offices that meet minimum qualifications, micro-markets are a great option for workplaces that want to provide a breadth of healthful snack and meal options, improve employee health, boost morale, increase productivity, and slash health care costs.
While HUMAN is adding services to its platform, it is also continuing to ensure its healthy vending services and technologies are on the cutting edge.
HUMAN’s industry-first, next-generation vending machine platform unites 100% touch-screen controlled technology with proprietary remote monitoring and telemetry software. The following are some of HUMAN’s new technological developments:
- State of the art touch screen technology that consumers can use to instantly gain valuable information on the products in the healthy vending machine, including photos, ingredient lists, and nutrition facts.
- New mobile payment technology allows users to store monetary and credit card value on their phones via a safe mobile app, which allows cashless payments at the point of sale.
- A loyalty program allows consumers to easily access their previous purchases, purchase base on their order history, bundle sales (purchase multiple products in the same transaction), gain insight into similar products (i.e. recommendations), and access exclusive coupons and promotions.
- Advanced healthy vending machines that offer real-time collection of point-of-sale information for analytics tracking. Franchisees have access to sales information, inventory, planograms, and more, from any computer, or mobile device with a web browser.
- Lastly, HUMAN franchisees have access to in-the-field, live video tech support.
Industry-First Franchisee “Ascension” Mastermind
Additionally, HUMAN continues to expand its coaching offerings to its franchisees with its new Ascension Mastermind. Through monthly live video and in-person meetings, the Ascension Mastermind connects franchisees that are in similar stages of their business’ growth, and empowers them to collaborate with each other and HUMAN’s brain trust to ensure they continue making steady progress towards their big picture goals. Each meeting contains topics, projects, and hot seats unique to the collection of franchisees in any given group. Peer-to-peer accountability further encourages franchisee growth and experience sharing. When a franchisee hits a certain level of performance, he/she then ascends to a new tier in the Ascension Mastermind, which will suit the franchisee’s current goals and growth schedule. In short, the Ascension Mastermind leverages the collective experiences of all franchisees to help each franchisee grow, overcome obstacles, and become a better social entrepreneur.
Legislation Boosts Healthy Vending & Micro-market Growth

With the increasing necessity for healthful snacks and beverages in schools due to the USDA’s new “Smart Snacks In School” rules and the growth in corporate wellness programs, the market demand for healthy vending machines and micro-markets has never been higher.
