Phoenix Business Journal:

Fresh Healthy Vending is expanding its presence in the Phoenix area with the addition of 15 new vending machines set to debut in the next several months.

The San Diego-based company franchises machines filled with healthy, natural snacks and beverages such as smoothies, soy milk, fruit, vegetables, yogurt, granola bars, baked chips and natural sodas.

Phoenix-area franchisee Jennifer Grill is accepting submissions for free locations and placements of 15 machines throughout the area, adding to the roughly 30 Fresh Healthy Vending machines already in the Valley.

Grill said she wanted to offer healthier snack options for local schools.
