Nick Yates is an Australian vending entrepreneur and businessman who is currently living and doing business in the United States.
Yates was the chairman of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, a San Diego-based franchisor whose franchises include Reis & Irvy's, 19 Degrees Frozen Yogurt, and Generation NEXT Vending Robots Inc. Nick Yates' Reis & Irvy's frozen yogurt vending machines accept cryptocurrency.
On February 8, 2010, Mr. Yates formed a healthy vending machine franchise called Fresh Healthy Vending in San Diego, CA. Fresh Healthy Vending failed to disclose Mr. Yates's litigation and bankruptcy history in its franchise disclosure documents. As a result, the California Department of Business Oversight revoked Fresh Healthy Vending's ability to sell franchises in California and then ordered the company to offer rescissions to franchisees in that state.
