Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating Expands Franchise Area to Kansas City
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating is proud to announce its newest franchised area, Kansas City, MO, is now open for business. The freshly prepared, delicious meals are now available for pick up or delivery, depending upon location.
The new Kansas City franchise has a network of local distributor locations -- i.e., storefront retail establishments -- serving customers in the area, as well as provide customers meals via shipping. The distributors provide clients with freshly prepared, portion and calorie controlled meals. The franchise will gradually expand out to accommodate customers with additional distributor locations throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area, western part of Missouri and the state of Kansas.
The Kansas City franchise is owned and operated by Sue Herrin and Darryl Vennard -- both bring numerous years experience with them as seasoned business professionals. Most recently they sold fine wine through their distributorship, totaling sales of over $50 million in the St. Louis area over the course of twenty years.
"We look forward to their involvement and know they'll be a great addition to our franchisees. Their business experience will greatly benefit them and contribute to their success as franchise owners," said Seattle Sutton, RN, BSN, Founder and President of Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating.
About the Franchise Concept
Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating Corporate and its franchisees operate kitchens that supply meals to distributor locations, retail establishments where clients order the healthy, prepared meals and obtain their meals for the week - breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating Kansas City franchise is the seventh franchise for the company, which began franchising the popular business concept in 1996 to a select few franchisees. The company has approximately 250 distributor locations in those areas and serves the remainder of the United States via its national Home Delivery program, shipping meals from coast-to-coast.
The Kansas City franchise is the second franchise granted by Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating in the last three years after the company began its national Home Delivery in 2005, serving clients from across the country via its headquarters in Ottawa, Ill., located nearly 80 miles southwest of Chicago. The most recent franchise awarded was Arizona in December 2007, which is currently in the process of building its kitchen operations in the Phoenix area.
