HUMAN ("Helping Unite Mankind and Nutrition"), America’s fastest-growing healthy vending franchise and the leading distributor of convenient healthy foods, recently held its inaugural franchisee development bootcamp called “the Elevation Summit.” Unlike HUMAN's Healthy Business-Building Bootcamp (HB3), which occurs when franchisees first sign on to the HUMAN franchise, the Elevation Summit is a three-day event focused on continued education and training for franchisees who have already launched throughout their local communities.

The Elevation Summit, which occurred from February 19 to 22 of this year, brought nearly 30 HUMAN franchisees from across the nation to HUMAN headquarters in Culver City, Calif. to accomplish one task: to optimize their healthy vending franchises. HUMAN is proud to continually pave the way when it comes to franchisee development and coaching.

“The Elevation Summit was an exciting event for us—not only did we get to see our franchisees’ smiling faces again, but we also had the privilege to announce our new technologies and services to them,” said Sean Kelly, CEO and Co-Founder of HUMAN. “We’re proud that our socially-conscious platform of healthy vending, micro market and snack delivery services have the potential to yield additional revenue streams for our franchisees while also effecting our mission to make healthy food more convenient than junk food.”

Elevation Summit attendees participated in the following events:

  •     Healthy Micro Markets Overview & Training
  •     Overview of HUMAN’s New Healthy Snack Delivery Service, "SnackNation”
  •     Advanced Training on HUMAN's Machine Line-Up, Including the HUMAN Touch and AutoPod
  •     Advanced Instruction on the USDA’s “Smart Snacks In School” Rules
  •     Dinners & Masterminding with HUMAN's leadership
  •     Product Demonstrations, Discussions & Sampling of HUMAN-Approved Products, including: Hint Water, ips All Natural, Kind Healthy Snacks, Larabar, Luvo, Inc., Pop Chips Pure Bar and Somersault Snack Co.

"It's been a great experience to get to interact with a lot of people that I met at HB3 [and] people I've never met before [but] talked to some of them on the Facebook Forum. Even though I'm already operating a market, I feel like I've learned a lot," said Jason Bryant, a HUMAN franchisee based in Concord, New Hampshire.

Together, HUMAN’s network of franchisees buy millions of healthy snacks and beverages per year to sell in HUMAN-brand vending machines, micro-markets and its healthy snack food delivery service called SnackNation, which made the Elevation Summit an excellent opportunity for healthful product brands to get in front of influential buyers.
