The H.U.M.A.N. Healthy Vending franchise was recently named winner of Empact 100’s “Largest Potential” category!

And for a great reason!

Companies across the US, including Apple, Tesla, and BlueCross BlueShield, are recognizing H.U.M.A.N.’s healthy micro markets as innovative and trendy solutions to poor eating. But even more, these companies, renowned worldwide as millennial thinkers and innovators, recognize H.U.M.A.N.’s potential. The H.U.M.A.N. platform, comprised of healthy micro markets, vending machines, and office snack delivery, has created a unique value for franchisees to service more locations in their communities than ever before.

The Empact Showcase, now in its fourth year, highlights the impact that young entrepreneurs are making on the global economy. And they are certainly making an impact! In 2014 alone, companies comprising the Empact Showcase, including the HUMAN franchise, contributed more than 10,000 jobs and controlled over $1 billion in revenue.

“Young entrepreneurs are having a big impact on our economy…” says Sheena Lindahl, Co-Founder of the Empact Showcase. “Many of the companies are social enterprises that are also making a huge difference in people’s lives. It is never an easy road to build a successful organization, and we believe it’s important to celebrate all the spirit and grit these entrepreneurs have put into making the world a better place.”

With an array of new implementations planned for 2015, we are proud to receive this honorary title, but not as excited as we are to put our plans to action. With a network of over 150 Healthy Vending Franchises across the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, H.U.M.A.N.’s potential lies in its ability to replace junk food options with healthier alternatives across the nation. As schools have begun compliance with the USDA’s Smart Snacks in School rules, we’ve taken a big step towards improving childhood nutrition.
