Vegetables in Vending Machines? You Bet!

Vegetables in Vending Machines? You Bet!

While it may seem odd at first to find vegetables in vending machines, the country is about to see this not only become a trend, but find out it’s here to stay! This food revolution comes as a result of the vending machine make-over by a San Diego-based company that has franchises stretching from one end of the country to the other.

"People have had enough of all the unhealthy food options. They really want something more nutritious, today,” explains Jolly Backer, the chief executive officer of Fresh Healthy Vending (www.freshvending.com). “Until now, getting something healthier might not have included convenience, which is something else that people want. So we have paired the two in a perfect combination.”

Patriots traveled to National Society of Black Engineers Annual National Convention

Patriots traveled to National Society of Black Engineers  Annual National Convention

What an awesome experience!  The Patriots traveled to participate in the National Society of Black Engineers 37th Annual National Convention held in St. Louis, MO, on March 24-27th was indescribable.  Seeing thousands of young professional men and women come together to handle their business of preparing for college and achieving their career goal was simply incredible.  And, for the Patriots, our participation gave each and everyone who attended and/or contributed to this experience something to be proud of.
