SnackNation Makes Healthy Snacking Fun, Life
More Productive, and Workplaces Awesome


The SnackNation Story

It all started back in 2002, when Sean Kelly was at the gym in the Upper West Side of New York City. He saw a woman get off a treadmill, order a Coke from the nearby vending machine, and hop back on the treadmill. That spawned the launch of HUMAN (Helping Unite Mankind And Nutrition), which pioneered healthy food distribution via healthy vending machines.

Fast forward to 2013: After having placed thousands of healthy vending machines across the country, earning an Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Company ranking (#168), and positively influencing millions of snacking decisions, Sean and his co-founder, Andy Mackensen, saw an incredible and growing need for healthy snack delivery in offices.

SnackNation launched in 2013, to address the huge demand for healthy snacks in the workplace and an increasing focus on employee engagement, health, and wellbeing. Having convenient healthy snacks at work just makes sense!

Since our founding, we’ve delivered millions of healthy snacks across the Nation, and we owe a huge thanks to our loyal customers and community for joining us on this journey of helping people eat more healthily. We hope that you’ll continue to be a part of our story.


SnackNation has aligned itself with Feeding America whose mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

For every SnackNation box shipped, SnackNation donates 10 meals via Feeding America.
