HEALTHY VENDING Unhealthy Lies

Healthy Vending ScamThe TRUTH About Healthy Vending Opportunities

Healthy Vending franchise companies want you to buy their business opportunity dream… and it seems they’ll to lie to do it.

Fresh H. Vending claimed that convicted fraudsters Mark Trotter and Nick Yates had nothing to do with the company.  They lied.

YoNaturals also lied about its connection to Trotter & Yates.

Sprout Vending co-founder Chris Wyland previously worked for FHV, where he also swore Trotter & Yates had nothing to do with that company. He lied.

HUMAN Vending concealed the checkered past of its VP of Sales, Bill Wotochek, and has never come clean even after we confronted them.  In our opinion, their marketing is rife with dubious and misleading earnings representations.

Naturals 2 Go does an amazing job hiding the fact that it is, in essence, the often maligned U-Turn Vending, with the same address, management and fax number.

    It’s hard to believe that Mr. Wyland, co-founder of Grow Healthy Vending, decided to become a member of the BBB earlier this year before this came to light:

    SALT LAKE CITY — After several years of being the target of allegedly false, misleading and slanderous accusations at consumer complaint websites, 1 800 Vending Inc. said it is taking legal action against one of its competitors.

    One 800 Vending, parent of HealthyYOU Vending, a vending business-opportunity firm, has accused Grow Franchise Group LLC and one its owners, Christopher Wyland, of posting bogus statements about 1 800 Vending and one of its owners, Jeff Marsh. It has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking monetary and injunctive relief on account of defamation, unfair competition and Lanham Act violations. (The Lanham Act, passed in 1946, prohibits trademark infringement and dilution, as well as false advertising.) The lawsuit, which is demanding a jury, was filed on Oct. 3 in the Utah District Court Northern Division.

    Nearly all of the bogus postings, made anonymously or under pseudonyms, were fabricated by people pretending to be customers of Kaysville, UT-based 1 800 Vending and HealthyYOU Vending, the lawsuit charges. Over time, the postings allegedly become viler, the suit claims. In February 2014, for example, one posting claimed that the company is “a complete scam ran by crooks and pedophiles” and “their owner Jeff Marsh has been indicted for lewd acts with children.” Further, the post stated, “I am sure they are under investigation by the government for stealing money from people.”

    Through its own investigation, 1 800 Vending found that this particular defamatory post was made by someone posing as a HealthyYOU Vending distributor from Salt Lake City. The post originated from the residential address of Christopher Wyland in Multnomah County, OR, 1 800 Vending said.

    In a press release, 1 800 Vending said it believes that other phony posts critical of the company and its healthy vending division were also authored by Wyland and others acting in concert with him, or on his behalf.

    “It is regrettable that one of our competitors feels the need to make fraudulent postings to damage our company’s reputation and cost our company millions of dollars in lost revenue,” Marsh said. “And it is outrageous that Mr. Wyland needs to resort to such appalling attacks against me personally, which as a father and grandfather make me sick.”

    Grow Franchise Group, which includes Grow Healthy Inc. and Sprout Healthy Vending LLC, has offices in Irving, CA, and Portland, OR.

    the HealthyYou “business opportunity” is certainly a scam. A big part of the sales pitch is that they get the locations for you. I bought 10 machines and after 3 months I have no locations. I have one delivered to my home and the quality is pretty bad. Now that I know what the machines are like I can tell you they are worth 5k each not 8k.

    They offer a training course in UT. Most of us exchanged emails address to keep in touch and many people are in the same boat — 3 months in and zero or 1 machine in place. If you bought more than 2 or 3 you are really losing money every month because we pay for storage.

    So Joseph, What are you planning to do now? Do you still have the machines?

    I bought 30 machines from Grow and they only found 10 locations after 2 1/2 years and still can’t find me locations in a very busy 70 mile radius in the Maryland/VIRGINIA DC area.
