Vend Natural expands into Nashville

Vend Natural, America’s leading healthy vending company offering all natural organic, snacks and beverages, yesterday announced the expansion of its operations in the Nashville, Tenn. area, reflecting a growing national trend towards healthier living.

Adding to its growing footprint nationwide, Vend Natural of Tennessee - led by Franklin resident and company President Toni Pack - will provide access to a full range of healthy convenience eating options to schools, universities, hospitals and other businesses in the Davidson and Williamson County communities and beyond.

“The Nashville metropolitan area - long known as the center of the music industry and home to many colleges and universities - is the perfect place to welcome healthy snacking alternatives in convenience eating,” said Toni Pack, healthy vending entrepreneur. “We are all anxious to address the epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes. Vend Natural’s healthy snack machines, with their wide assortment of all natural, organic beverages and snacks, offer the right alternative to traditional high-fat, low nutritional value snacks in hospitals, schools and other public venues.”

Pack continued, “We expect strong demand for our healthy snack machines in both Davidson and Williamson counties as others hear about the Vend Natural solution. We know that even small changes can make big differences and we want to part of that kind of change for our community.”

Vend Natural CEO Gil Sanchez says, “We are pleased to see leaders in the Nashville area join our business across the country. Toni Pack is a strong operator with a real commitment to expanding Vend Natural’s presence in her home state. As a long-time resident of the Franklin area with a proven track record in business, Toni Pack and her operating team are strongly invested in ensuring that their community never has to trade health for convenience."

Vend Natural is America’s fastest-growing healthy snacking company and is based in Ventura, California and Annapolis, Maryland. The company was inspired by the vision of helping to transform eating patterns by providing healthy snacking alternatives in convenient vending locations across America. Specializing in placements in schools, hospitals and businesses, Vend Natural currently operates more than 550 machines in 22 states and the District of Columbia with plans for significant growth over the next several years.
