Bill Wotochek, Director of Franchise Development
Bill Wotochek is the Director of Franchise Development for HUMAN Healthy Vending and has been since joining the company in August of 2011. Bill is dedicated to HUMAN’s mission of creating “Easy Nutrition Everywhere” and has a passion for fighting the obesity epidemic. Bill and HUMAN are doing this through a national network of franchisees that operate 100% healthy vending machines in schools, hospitals, YMCA’s, and offices across the country.
HUMAN now has over 200 operators in over 40 states including Canada and Puerto Rico, and has been named by Forbes Magazine as a top 50 “Most Promising Company’s in America” two years running. With a fast-growing foundation comprised of passionate social entrepreneurs, there is no question that HUMAN will continue to be a leader in the fight against childhood obesity, malnutrition, and diabetes for years to come.
Hear what some of our HUMAN Healthy Vending franchisees have to say about Bill:
“Bill Wotochek is welcoming, patient, understanding and informative. These are some of the words I would use to describe a relationship that began during a workout with a nonchalant tone of interest and ended up three months later with a 4k mile trip across the US to meet our partners in health.
Bill is an honest energetic, enthusiastic proponent to the HUMAN brand and the values that it encompasses. My wife and I had been researching for years for something that not only fit our interests, but also something we could manage as a family, especially with a two year old daughter. We are currently in the LDA phase of our campaign, but are confident that with some hard work, organization and an underlining belief in the core h.u.m.a.n. values, we will build a successful social responsible local business.
Being new to the “vending” business or the idea of partnering in the business, we wanted to align ourselves with the brightest, most knowledgeable and furthermore the most forward looking thinkers. Prior to visiting the h.u.m.a.n. offices, we viewed the team as innovative and different than what you would think of as a traditional “vending” service. After our HB3 training we not only solidified our partnership with the team, but also returned with an empowered model that uses the h.u.m.a.n. brand as the leveraging board to making nutritional food more convenient than junk food.
Our dive into the healthy automated retailing business and social entrepreneurship against obesity with not be at our current growth phase if it was not for Bill’s persistence to connect our family’s goals with that of h.u.m.a.n. Our focus to live and eat healthy, educate our daughter and promote lifestyle changes in our local community is not what you would usually define as a “vending” business. It is through our partnership with h.u.m.a.n. that we will be not only we growing a business, but also laying the path for a healthier society.”

“I must say, dealing with Bill Wotochek was the utmost KEY to making a decision to proceed with our decision to go with h.u.m.a.n. as a business venture. Bill was extremely personable, passionate as well as completely upfront with our questions. Bill answered all of our questions and concerns with the utmost sincerity and transparency. I truly appreciated Bill’s knowledge and expertise in the nutrition and health industry. This made the telcos very engaging and worthwhile.
We wanted to take a few moments to share our experience with HB3 as well as LDA. First off, HB3 was fantastic. It was very exciting meeting all of you, including the leadership teams in California. It was extremely valuable to learn the vision and see the passion with which h.u.m.a.n. conducts business. The overall experience really helped us to focus on what we are truly in business for. Our interest in nutrition and health was even more enhanced through the three days we spent with the team in headquarters. Our vision and passion to improve access for nutrition in our local community was reignited after HB3. We truly look forward to the upcoming launch process through the LDA process.
Regarding LDA, we are extremely excited about the opportunities that we see in our local community. Our ESN and LDA lead have been really great in helping us understand the process and helping us to understand how we need to make sure to team up to make this successful. We look forward to the upcoming weeks/months as we launch our programs together.
We are very excited to have become partners with h.u.m.a.n. and believe we will have a jointly successful business venture.”

“I can confidently say that business ownership was a life goal of mine, and was a daunting, exciting, terrifying, and very satisfying experience. I consider myself a relentless entrepreneur – constantly looking at components of business in every aspect of my daily surroundings. Eventually, after researching many many businesses, I landed on healthy vending.
I looked into many different healthy vending franchises. I ended up investing in HUMAN, and am happy I did. There are several reasons I chose HUMAN over the other companies, but one of the most important reasons was their ability to communicate well, provide personable service with realistic explanations of the business, and consistently provide motivational and positive support that is absolutely essential for any entrepreneur.
The first person I encountered on my journey to becoming a HUMAN vending operator was Bill Wotochek. Bill was the first person to reach out to me after my initial interest in the HUMAN franchise. Since that first phone call, I have had many interactions with him in person as well as emails and phone calls. It’s always a pleasure to re-connect with Bill, as time and time again he represents that same quintessential element of positive energy that has played such a huge part in our own success.
Bill is the face of the company in many ways: he is the first to reach out to fresh entrepreneurs, and sets the foundation for the future vending operators’ outlook and understanding of the business. I applaud Bill for having consistency and transparency in all his interactions, and ultimately bringing me into the successful vending business I have today. Thanks again Bill!”

“Joining h.u.m.a.n. Healthy Vending has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. The first teleconference with Bill Wotochek lasted nearly 2 hours. The intense level of passion for easy nutrition everywhere absolutely saturated each conversation. You can instantly assess that these men and women truly believe that they go to work each day and make a meaningful contribution. That’s the team I want to be on!
The key decision makers have been accommodating to my unique schedule and, so far, have delivered on all promises made to me during the initial agreements. Bill Wotochek’s motivation is completely transparent: get the right people with the right machines in the right locations. Not the quick buck or the easy placement.
The best experience of the process is the Human Business Building Bootcamp (HB3). I got loads of time for hands-on machine training and had the pleasure of meeting like-minded, fellow franchisees and a truly exceptional corporate staff. Every member of the corporate h.u.m.a.n. team is passionate, energetic and fun! They’re truly excited to meet you and build the brief in-person relationship and each team member is an outstanding ambassador for the unique culture at h.u.m.a.n..”
