Natural and Organic Vending Options....Snack Healthy!

About Us

Dedicated to improving the quality of life that starts now and lasts a lifetime!


South Dakota Healthy Vending became a reality for Chris and Breann Stiefel in 2009.  They started the company because they were passionate about wanting people to have options about what they ate.  Everyone snacks… that is just the way it is.  But, why not give people the option to snack healthy?

The food we put in our body’s today, affect how we will feel tomorrow.  We have all been told that over and over again.  When the Stiefel’s heard that statistically, parents are going to outlive their children; they were determined that wouldn’t happen to their family.  Healthier living is always on their mind.


Chris and Breann have been married for over 11 years and are raising 3 daughters, Ciana, Kelsey, and Tenlee.  With all the fast food and convenience foods out there, the Stiefel’s want to make sure that their girls grow up knowing that there are choices when it comes to food.  They aren’t perfect eaters themselves, but they know the benefits of eating healthy.  They want everyone to have the opportunity to, especially when at work or school.

Chris grew up in The Black Hills of South Dakota and moved to Mitchell to attend college.  After receiving his telecommunications degree and
working for a local company for 4 years, Chris decided to start his own company. Chris started Absolute Construction, Inc. in 2004 and loves watching the Sioux Falls area grow.

Breann graduated college with a Business Degree.  After working in the banking and retail business fields, raising a family became more important to her and Chris.  Breann became a stay-at-home mom when Ciana was first born.  She has continued to have that role while owning and operating SD Healthy Vending, and is a member of the National Association of Professional Women.

SD Healthy Vending Continues to Grow


With the continued growth, Dale and Bonnie Rippentrop have joined the business in 2012.  Dale and Bonnie are the parents of Breann and have become a vital role in the success of spreading the word of healhy snacking.

Dale and Bonnie have been married for 37 years and raised 4 children; 3 boys and Breann.

Dale works in the Maintenance Department of a local hospital facility and Bonnie has been in the banking business most of her career.  They are both excited to join such an important business and help others have options on the choices they make for the food that goes in their body.

The Stiefel’s are excited to watch their family grow healthier while watching the SD Healthy Vending
family grow too!  You can join us,
