Want to hear a secret? People care more about why you do something than what you do, or how you do it.
At HUMAN, we know why we’re disruptors of the $42B vending industry: we want to make healthy food more convenient than junk food. It started with Sean Kelly’s a-ha moment at a New York fitness club and has since transformed into an award-winning healthy vending franchise system.
If you’ve wondered what it’s like to lead your life with a compelling “why,” meet Brad Adams, a HUMAN Healthy Vending partner, based in San Jose, CA, who is living his dream of being his own boss with a health-conscious business.

In the video above, Brad discusses a day in his life as a healthy vending operator and explains why he chose HUMAN amongst the other franchise opportunities he researched, why HUMAN’s technology assists his business, and why a common sentence you’ll hear from him upon removing the cash from his machines is: “I don’t know if all of this money is going to fit in here!”
More and more people are asking why and are on board with HUMAN’s mission to make healthy food more convenient than junk food.
For example, Washington State recently announced that it is planning to implement voluntary nutritional guidelines that will further restrict the foods and beverages allowed in vending machines at state agencies and institutions. In order for snacks to qualify as “healthiest” or “healthier,” they must exclude trans fat (which typically comes from partially hydrogenated oils) and added sweeteners, such as high fructose corn syrup, and contain no more than 360mg of sodium.
Additionally, if you recently caught NBC’s TV Show Parenthood, you would have seen healthy vending gets its fair share of prime time. The young character Max triumphs as class president by getting vending machines brought back to his school after the PTA (which he coined the “Parent Totalitarian Association”) dumped the junk-food ones. The new machines turn out to be healthy vending!
Have a great weekend, HUMANists!
