For the third year in a row, the The Franchise Brokers Association (FBA) has recognized Naturals2Go Healthy Vending as a successful business opportunity program for people wanting to start their own business. The prestigious award was presented at the 2014 International Franchise Brokers Conference and Expo among the franchise and business opportunity industries’ most celebrated and successful peer organizations.
Naturals2Go received the award for a great business startup program in a year that included many accomplishments for the Idaho-based company. Amidst new technological innovations like AirVend credit and debit card processing, live nutritional information reporting on all snacks and drinks, and recently announced facial recognition software, the company has continued to grow through the sale and successful launch of more than 108 home-based businesses throughout the United States since last year’s conference.
“Three years in a row tells me that we’re doing something right,” says Randy Francis, the President of Vend Tech International. “While our industry gets more crowded year after year, these awards and recognitions we continue to receive have convinced me that we have a program that works. I am continually humbled to know that our reputation as honest business people who simply want our customers to do well for themselves is still attracting attention.”
The company specializes in helping people start their own healthy vending businesses in the local markets where they live. Naturals2Go, a division of Vend Tech International, is a business opportunity, meaning that the company does not charge franchise fees, royalty fees. Business owners use Naturals2Go healthy vending machines, the company’s highly rated technology services, and their business startup training program to open their own brands of vending machine service in their local markets. Many people start their businesses with Naturals2Go with the plan of the business becoming a full time commitment, while others opt to use the company’s rapidly scalable program to create additional revenue streams to supplement existing jobs and wages.
"When we won our first Business Opportunity of the Year Award in 2012, it was easy enough for our competitors to write it off as a one time deal." says Makayla Seger, Director of Business Development with Naturals2Go. "But this is our third year in a row - at some point you have to admit that what we're doing is unique in the industry, and that we're providing a value that no one else can replicate. Our team is phenomenal, and they really make the difference count for every new operator we partner with."
The work at home home based business opportunity offered by Naturals2Go require substantially less capital to start than many traditional, brick-and-mortar businesses. Additionally, the company’s business startup training program is designed to help people who have never operated a business. As a result of this smaller investment requirement and ease of entry, Naturals2Go attracts people from all backgrounds, careers, and experiences.
