As a pioneer in the industry, Grow Vending is the only company of its kind to give vending operators and locations a healthy balanced approach to vending. Grow offers over 1,000 healthy and traditional products to meet the needs of locations nationwide.

Born in Hong Kong, Grow’s newest operator, Lily Wentz came to the United States when she was only one year old. Years later Wentz graduated from CSULB and found a position with her current job shortly thereafter. Wentz is currently living in Ladera Ranch but is moving in the coming weeks to Huntington Beach and will place her machines in and around Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Costa Mesa areas.

Wentz has been working in the finance industry for 14 years now and she also has been teaching a cycling class for about eight years. Wentz says she found a new personal confidence after she completed her first marathon in 2009. She has always wanted to branch out into her own business in the health & fitness industry, but was waiting for the right opportunity. She feels as though Grow is the perfect opportunity.

“I’ve been working in the finance industry for about 14 years now and thought it was time do something that I am passionate about [in health & fitness], but still had the freedom to create my own schedule. When I found Grow, it was the combination of freedom and bringing healthier food to the masses that won me over,” Wentz shares.

No stranger to healthy living herself, Wentz has completed several marathons and half-marathons over the years. Her personal goal is to finish ten marathons by her 40th birthday.

“I am an accountant by day and a spin instructor by night. It would be hypocritical of me to offer anything other than healthy products!” Wentz jokes.

Having grown up in the area, Wentz knows that she is surrounded by people who choose to lead healthier lifestyles as well. “I believe this concept will do really well in this area. I know people in South Orange County are very health-conscience and would appreciate that I am now supplying healthier options,” Wentz states. “Also, with the alarming obesity rates and heart diseases that are effecting so many, I think this will be extremely beneficial to anyone and everyone.”

Grow is a unique company that uses proprietary technology and a passion for the vending industry to provide its clients with a superior customer experience and a turnkey opportunity.

“In my mind Grow is the new generation of vending. It’s leaner and cleaner. It’s a very attractive way to introduce healthier options alongside traditional items. There is something for everyone in these machines. I am looking forward to watching my business take off!” Wentz says.

Co-Founder Chris Wyland shares, “The patented Grow Modular Vendor System offers a revolutionary breakthrough approach to vending. Our system combines healthy and traditional vending with a patented field replaceable product magazine loading system and the most technically advanced software on the market. With over 80 operators all over the country, Grow is fast becoming one of the most sought after business opportunities in the industry.”
