Sprout Healthy Vending, a national leader in taking the vending industry in a healthy direction at work, school and in the community, welcomes Lisa Sinclair Smith and Tony Balsa to the Sprout family.

Smith has had some unfortunate recent health emergencies, but it hasn’t stopped her from running a healthy vending business. She views her partnership with Sprout Healthy Vending as a great opportunity to endorse something close to her heart.

“As a breast cancer survivor, I am very concerned about eating healthy and I wanted to promote something I really believe in,” said Smith. “I’m also a Russian adoption facilitator having lived in Russia for 10 years and helped 1000+ Russian orphans to be adopted. Now I wanted to do something to help American children.”

Balsa also devotes his life to living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle after losing his wife to breast cancer several years ago. He is a gourmet cook with a focus on healthy eating. Together, Smith and Balsa decided this was the perfect way to sustain their own lifestyles as well as encourage their community to jump on the bandwagon.

“The Sprout team is very efficient and they are also a lot of fun to work with. They are responsive and have been extremely helpful to us in our new business with them,” said Balsa.
“We are very excited at the prospect of expanding healthy vending in Marin and Sonoma counties. Healthy vending in this area is long overdue and we think it will really make people ‘think’ about vending options besides the traditional ‘unhealthy’ ones. We especially feel that the schools could benefit from our Sprout Healthy Vending program.”

“The common denominator that ties our Sprout Operators together is that the concept of providing healthy snacks and drinks and owning a socially responsible business fits perfectly into their own healthy lifestyle,” explains Sprout Co-Founder Chris Wyland. “Lisa and Tony are perfect examples of this. With their business experience and our operational support I have no doubt that they will find huge success.”
