IRVINE, CA -- Sprout Healthy Vending has launched Grow Vending, a turnkey program that delivers a mix of "healthy" and traditional vending products to smaller sites via a field-replaceable product-magazine loading system.

The program, which targets workplace populations of 50 to 150, consists of modular snack, beverage and Keurig K-Cup coffee machines and software.

Route drivers can reportedly exchange depleted product cartridges with full ones pre-stocked in the warehouse in three to four minutes. This ability enables profitable service of multiple locations with moderate machine traffic, according to the company.

The company's GrowLogic software uses best-selling product data, location type and dietary restrictions for each location to generate customized planograms that combine better-for-you vending items with traditional snacks and drinks. Franchisees have access to more than 1,000 all natural, organic and traditional products.

The software also tracks sales data to ensure an optimal product selection in each machine taking into account any changes that take place in each location.

Sprout Healthy Vending reportedly has more than more than 90 franchisees providing healthy and organic vending across the country.
