YoNaturals Continues to Install Healthy Vending Machines Throughout San Diego Schools.
SAN DIEGO -- Leading healthy vending snack supplier YoNaturals, Inc. of San Diego recently announced the addition of new vending machine locations at schools in the Greater San Diego area.
Aviara Oaks and Calavera Middle Schools in Carlsbad, and Grace Lutheran Schools in Escondido have all entered into agreements with the rapidly expanding food and beverage marketer, providing students with state-of-the-art vending machines offering a selection of healthier snack foods and beverages.
"We're of course very pleased at our rapid expansion across school systems," says YoNaturals CEO and healthy vending advocate Mark Trotter. "Word-of-mouth continues to broaden our schools market and also provides us with an entree into other market segments."
David Kalk, Assistant Principal at Aviara Oaks Middle School, also finds much to like about the new agreement. "We prefer to be proactive when it comes to child nutrition, and the healthier YoNaturals snack menu dovetails nicely with both district standards and our own preferences. And the profit sharing plan helps us meet budgetary needs."
Vended items are chosen from top-selling snack products that meet California State standards for reduced content of fats, sodium and sugar.
Operator Janet Davis sees continued growth for YoNaturals as more school districts respond to media attention given to the worsening problem of childhood obesity. "It gives an extra buoyancy to our marketing efforts," says Davis. Adds Trotter, "And as reduced budgets force administrators to look harder for revenue opportunities -- we should prove to be an increasingly attractive option."
Will burgeoning demand for their healthy vending machines outstrip resources and perhaps force adjustments to the YoNaturals business plan? "No," says Trotter. "The growth we've experienced, particularly among schools, has at times challenged the pace of deliveries from our vending machine manufacturers. But we've actually benefited from the general economic slowdown in that manufacturers have often been able to accelerate their delivery schedules to us -- thus providing us with extra capacity to meet demand."
