Greenville, South Carolina (PRWEB) August 26, 2011
For many Greenville residents, healthy vending is an unfamiliar concept--but not for long. Local vending operators, Buck and Meggie Bradberry, saw a need for change in the nutritional options available in the community. Like many Greenville residents, they recognized access to healthy foods was a challenge.
“We saw a problem: limited access to healthy, nutritious snacks and beverages in our community,” said Meggie Bradberry. “We found the solution: increase access to nutritious foods, making it easier and more convenient to be healthy.”
By teaming with HUMAN Healthy Vending and forming their own healthy vending company, Upstate Healthy Living, Buck and Meggie Bradberry are making access to healthy snacks and foods easier than ever. They plan on doing so through their premium, HUMAN Healthy Vending machines, as well as through their healthy snack catering service for business meetings, large functions, and kid-friendly events.
Upstate Healthy Living will be placing HUMAN Healthy Vending machines in top-notch locations across Greenville, including Kemet Electronics, Elliott Davis, St. Joseph’s Catholic School, Caine Halter YMCA, GHS Family YMCA, Middle Tyger YMCA, Pickens Branch YMCA and YWCA of Greenville. Each location is excited to offer healthy choices to employees, customers, gym members, and students in the Greenville community.
“One exciting aspect for our locations is that they are receiving the most technologically advanced vending machines in the U.S., with credit card capability, remote monitoring, and a vend sensor system that guarantees a successful vend every time a purchase is made,” commented Buck Bradberry. “And our favorite part of the machine is the digital LCD screen on top, allowing us to educate the end-consumer about the benefits of the product they are about to purchase, as well as displaying some fun, healthy living tips!”
The partnering of Upstate Healthy Living and HUMAN Healthy Vending is monumental for Greenville. Never before has such a program existed in the area. With the obesity epidemic reaching an all time high, communities are now recognizing a need for change. “The benefits from treating your body well by simply eating healthy foods and exercising are priceless,” said Buck Bradberry.
Now, with the launch of 100% healthy vending machines, maintaining a healthy lifestyle has never been easier for Greenville residents.
