the Power Locker™ Story

It all started with a simple idea to help everyone feel better and snack healthier.

Our Story

Potential. We understand that magic mix of promise and drive. It lives in all of us. Fueling our success and challenging us to go a little bit harder. Work a little bit better. Be a little bit healthier and stronger every day.

That’s why we founded Power Locker™ to help you power through your day a little bit harder. Our innovative, smart snacking system is designed to fuel the athlete in all of us. Our certified and hand selected menu options provide clean, organic, and all-natural food and beverage choices within reach when you’re on the go.

We started small – a group of friends and former athletes passionate about the desire to live a fitness driven, healthy lifestyle while also being in charge of our own schedules. We shared common challenges: eating well consistently when life moves at warp-speed while also balancing our careers and our families.

We set out to develop solutions to two problems.

  1. Make it easy for busy, active people to make better food choices.
  2. Expand our movement by helping like-minded entrepreneurs start their own successful business. A business that offers flexibility, profitability, and supports the goal of eating well.

Whether you are considering launching your own Power Locker™ business or becoming a host location for a Power Locker™ machine our team will be there every step of the way. On behalf of our entire Power Locker™ team we look forward to working with you!
