SAN DIEGO, CA -- Fresh Healthy Vending International Inc. franchisees can now add micromarkets to their repertoires. The company has collaborated with Reliable Contractors Inc. and VirtueBuild, both of San Diego, to design and build the hardware components and software features for its own self-checkout kiosk.
Called Fresh Micro Markets, the installations reportedly offer extensive transactional data processing, from daypart metrics, business analytics and merchandising strategies to Internet connectivity for open-system payments processing and transaction tracking. A franchisee is required to pay a monthly fee for software use.
San Diego-based FHV says it has appointed more than 230 franchisees throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, with machines installed in more than 2,500 locations. It acquired a micromarket company earlier this year. | SEE STORY
