About Pride Vending

Lee Prantl

  • I am just a farm boy from Gervais.
  • My lifelong dream was to be in business for myself.
  • After owning a bar in the 70s and working a vending company out of Portland, I started Pride Vending in 1981.
  • It has grown through the years from the golden age of videogames to the current platform of ATMS, digital jukeboxes and entertainment machines.
  • Currently president of state association OAMOA (Oregon Amusement and Music Operators Association).

  • Raised in an arcade in Springfield in the 70s, where I started the amusement game fascination that has carried through my entire life.
  • I like to think I’m a pro on the pool table, but lose more often than I win.
  • After spending four years in the Air Force moving bombs around, I came back home and started working with a local beverage distributor. This job brought me back on to the operating scene of jukeboxes, pool tables and amusement machines.
