In response to consumer demand for delicious, healthy, on-the-go food options, The Green Moustache Organic Café has launched its first vending machine, located at the Meadow Park Sports Centre in Whistler, British Columbia. The Green Moustache vending machine menu offers ultra-tasty 100% organic, gluten-free, nutrient-rich meals and desserts; the perfect food to fuel your workout.
“We are excited to launch this approach in our hometown” said Geoff Telfer, Chief Strategy Officer and Partner. “Unlike the traditional vending machine model, we are re-stocking daily with freshly prepared meals and snacks. We believe these modern vending machines are an efficient and sustainable way to expand our reach and to further our mission of bringing health-promoting, nutritious food to every neighbourhood.”
“Our aim is to take advantage of new technologies such as our mobile app – which allows customers to order online, earn reward points and send digital gift cards – and now our vending machine, to enable us to meet our customers’ needs for easy, fast and truly healthy options, and to bring these to a wider area.”
Whistler’s Mayor, Nancy Wilhelm-Morden, congratulated the Meadow Park Sports Centre and Green Moustache teams on working together on this pilot-project, adding, “Personal health is an important aspect of our community priority of enriching community life. The new healthy-option vending machine at Meadow Park Sports Centre is a positive step forward in promoting healthy eating and overall wellbeing for our active Whistler community.”
Following the success of the Meadow Park vending machine The Green Moustache plans to place vending machines in more communities across Canada, in facilities such as hospitals, schools, sports and recreation centres, and workplaces. Green Moustache Franchisees will also have the opportunity to purchase and manage vending machines in their communities.
“With most vending machines out there offering highly processed, unhealthy snack foods, our vending machine is a much-needed alternative that provides people with quick and tasty meals without compromising on nutrition and quality,” said Nicolette Richer, Green Moustache Juice Co. Inc. Founder and CEO.
“Rates of chronic disease and obesity are sky rocketing in Canada and consumers need more options for healthy eating that help them achieve optimal health. Our customers give us incredible feedback about the quality of our food and customer service, and we are thrilled to be able to reach people in more areas via our healthy vending machines.”
Whistlerites and visitors looking for some quick, tasty and nutritious #greenmotogo can access the Green Moustache vending machine during the Meadow Park Sports Centre’s regular hours: 6 am – 10 pm, 7 days a week.
