The Crayola Experience, a popular destination for families seeking hands-on interaction with the iconic Crayola brand, is demonstrating a lasting commitment to promoting healthier habits for children and families. The 60,000 square foot facility now features two healthy snack vending machines on its premises, owned and operated by a franchisee of the largest healthy vending company today, Fresh Healthy Vending.
Visitors to The Crayola Experience, who have the opportunity to participate in everything from building a custom marker to animating their creations on a huge digital projection, are flocking to the machines to refuel in between activities. The franchise owner, Dominick Palmieri, says that the new installations are popular because they are giving more options to the health-conscious families who patronize the facility. “They appreciate having the choice of healthy snacks and beverages,” he said.
Palmieri, who also owns Fresh Healthy Vending machines located at two public schools, one private Christian school and a community center, believes that parents want better snack options than the traditional vending machine fare at schools and amusement attractions. “The way the world is changing, parents are looking for healthier choices for their children – and our success at Crayola proves that,” he said.
He contends that other recreational destinations with big name recognition could benefit from having Fresh Healthy Vending machines installed. “We need more healthy snack alternatives in places like this,” he said. “We used to say, the proof is in the pudding; now, it’s in the applesauce.”
