National Women’s Small Business Month
HealthyYOU Vending Celebrates Women-Owned Businesses
National Women’s Small Business Month celebrates the giant strides women have taken as small business owners in recent years. There are more than 11 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., and since 2007 women-owned businesses have grown five times faster than the national average.
“Women entrepreneurs are growing at an unprecedented rate,” says Maria Contreras-Sweet, Administrator the U.S. Small Business Administration. “More than one in four U.S. companies is owned or led by a woman, and these firms employ more than 7.8 million Americans.”
HealthyYOU Vending encourages entrepreneurship by offering franchise-level support for all operators right from the start. From our two-day intensive Healthy YOUniversity business training to lifetime coaching and a 24-hour online support center, HealthyYOU Vending offers the most comprehensive healthy vending business support training in the industry.

“Women’s Small Business Month is a great time to highlight the advancements made by women in business and celebrate women business owners,” says Amanda Brown, Executive Director of the NWBC. At HealthyYOU Vending, we agree. Take a look at some of our women owned business success stories:
With more than 20 years of successful experience, Terrie Matz knows a thing or two about small business ownership. But when a gluten allergy diagnosis derailed her health, she knew she wasn’t the only one who could benefit from healthy convenience food. Now in her fourth year of business as a HealthyYOU Vending operator, Terrie operates 19 healthy vending machines throughout Lehigh Valley, PA, including Crayola corporate headquarters and manufacturing plants.
When Alli Gardner sought out a new business opportunity, she wanted it to complement her existing health and wellness coaching business, Core of Health. Within a year her healthy vending business saw the kind of success many small business owners dream about, with healthy vending machines in Salt Lake City, Utah-area hospitals, emergency centers, and health-based call centers.
