Healthy Midwest Vending Introduction Video
What inspired your consciousness about healthy vending options?
A few years ago I had gastric bypass surgery and that was when I decided to change my entire lifestyle. I started eating better, working out and that was when I realized how difficult it was to find healthy options, even at places you would traditionally think should have better vending options, like a gym.
What sparked the idea behind Healthy Midwest Vending?
There weren’t ANY healthy vending options in the area. Without the option, people can’t make healthier choices, so I wanted to make that more convenient for people.
Your small business is definitely unique.
What do you, personally, think makes it most unique to the Quad Cities Area?
We’re the first! There’re no other healthy vending options available in the QCA.
What is your favorite part about owning and operating a healthy option vending service?
That we really can make a difference in people’s lives! Given the option, I truly think people will try to eat healthier. Or for people with allergies or different dietary restrictions, that can be an isolating feeling so we want to make sure everyone has options, even on the go.
If the Quad Cities needed to know one thing about your business, what would it be?
We’re family owned and operated, founded right here in the Quad Cities. Each member of our team brings a different background to our business. My personal history with gastric bypass and lifestyle changes, my daughter is currently in chiropractic school and her husband is a former D1 football player, so we all bring a different expertise to this business.
What is your favorite part about being located in the Quad Cities?
It’s such a growing area and I can see an overwhelming movement toward health and wellness that it’s exciting to be getting started at such a perfect time.
What is your personal favorite part about living in the Quad Cities?
Very few people get the amazing experience of living right by the Mississippi River.
What are your hopes/vision of Healthy Midwest Vending for the future?
Really, I think the possibilities are endless. If people are given a healthier option, even if it’s just for one snack or drink per day, it really can make a difference in their general health.
Is there anything you would like to see more of in the QC?
The Mississippi River is such a beautiful natural resource, I think the more we can utilize the riverfront and turn the Quad Cities into a true tourist destination of the Midwest, the more recognition and money that will continue to come to the area.
