Irvine-based Sprout Healthy Vending has expanded to Louisville, Kentucky, placing its health-conscious vending machines in three different locations in the region. Students at Mercy Academy High School and St. Francis High School, as well as participants at the Southeast Family YMCA, now have access to a wide range of healthy vending machine snacks, giving them access to food aside from the sugar-loaded selection found in traditional vending machines.
The energy-efficient, LED-lit vending machines offer healthy and organic snacks, such as yogurt, fruit, crackers and granola bars. The range of products also includes kosher, gluten free and vegan choices.
“We couldn’t be more excited for these new locations in Louisville. I am confident that the Sprout machines will be well received. I always like placing machines in schools, knowing that children are being offered healthier food options. It’s the procurement of these types of high volume vending locations that really sets us apart from our competition,” said Chris Wyland, the company’s co-founder.
