School Vending: How Does Healthy Vending Integrate?

An interview with Seden Harrison of Smart Source Vending harrisons

“We started in the vending industry interested in promoting the healthy vending options to the schools… and we learned very quickly that all healthy vending is not necessarily the way to go. People like choices – some of the products are healthy, but then there’s your traditional, not so healthy stuff, that’s also available in the machines.”

“Our biggest thing with the schools is… we make sure they are very well taken care of. So if that school needs something, we are there that day to take care of the problem… It’s a priority to take care of those kids that day and to make sure the administrators are happy.”

“There’s talk about all sorts of regulation that really is in the pipeline (regarding healthy)… to regulate the vending in schools… it’s going to become problematic because students will figure out how to circumvent the system.”

“Why can’t you marry the two together, why can’t that choice be there?”

Seden shares more experiences, opinions on regulation (quite humorous) with healthy vending and school vending in the podcast:
