Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
While schools, gyms and business locations are the typical target for healthy vending machines—that is, machines that vend healthful foods and drinks—there is rarely a location that wouldn’t benefit from convenient access to healthful items. HUMAN ("Helping Unite Mankind and Nutrition"), one of America’s fastest growing franchisors and the leading convenient distributor of healthy foods, has placed 2,000 healthy vending machines across North America, including at many unconventional locations and some of America’s most respected companies. Below, HUMAN announces its top 7 most unconventional location types.
#1. Businesses & Non-Profits that Give Back
Famous for its one-for-one model of giving back, TOMS Shoes’ corporate location, based in Los Angeles, Calif., has a HUMAN healthy vending program on its premises for employees.
The San Diego, Calif.-based affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International is also home to a HUMAN healthy vending machine. Habitat for Humanity is one of San Diego’s most forward- focused organizations, building homes for ownership by low-income families in San Diego County.
#2. Cosmetology Schools
As a strategic partner with the American Association of Cosmetology Schools and Paul Mitchell School, HUMAN’s healthy vending machines can be found in cosmetology schools across the nation, including at the Paul Mitchell School in Houston, one of the largest Paul Mitchell School locations, which has four healthy vending machines.
#3. Famous Sports Locations
HUMAN’s healthful snacks and drinks fuel some of the nation’s top school sports teams.
For example, HUMAN services several healthy vending machines within Ector County Independent School District schools in Texas—the inspiration behind the movie and TV show, "Friday Night Lights.”
Sharks Ice, the official practice space for the San Jose Sharks (National Hockey League), is home to a HUMAN healthy vending machine as well.
#4. Fine Arts Locations
Healthy vending machines are the perfect solution for fine artists looking to consume convenient foods and drinks without compromising their health or performance. Dance studios, including the Debbie Allen Dance Academy in Los Angeles and Pure Movement Dance and Fitness in Allen, Texas, are home to several of HUMAN’s healthy vending machines. Similarly, musicians snack on healthy fuel from HUMAN’s machines at a prominent music conservatory in Northern California.
# 5. Independent Schools
While HUMAN healthy vending machines can be found in hundreds of public schools across the nation, they can also be found in independent schools, including an innovative learning academy in Austin, Texas and LongLeaf School of the Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina.
#6. Innovative Businesses
Innovative businesses that are home to healthy vending machines include four Apple stores across the United States; NYC Bicycle Share, which features thousands of Citi Bikes at hundreds of stations around New York available 24/7, 365 days a year; and Event Network, based in San Diego, Calif., the leading cultural attraction retail operator in North America.
#7. Kids’ Spaces
HUMAN has just launched at the new Children’s Museum, Thinkery, based in Austin, Texas.
Additionally, those taking a hike and in need of an electrolyte-replenishing beverage will find a HUMAN healthy vending machine to be a welcome fixture. HUMAN has healthy vending machines placed at several parks and recreation centers across the nation, including Shelby Farms Conservancy in Memphis, Tenn.
