Zachary Sandler Wish is owner of Wish Inc. and Mason Equities LLC., parent company to many businesses, but most notably Midwest Linen & Uniform Service and Wish Premium. He joined the family business, started by his great-grandfather more than 130 years ago, in 2001.
The business, the third oldest active company in Detroit, is now one of the largest independently owned laundries in the country. In 2016, Zachary acquired the business and used his social media/internet expertise to keep it competitive in a market dominated by large national corporate entities.
In early 2019, Zachary founded Wish Premium, a rapidly growing cannabis brand. His goal is to make the benefits of medical marijuana understood and more accessible to and work to remove the “stigma” of cannabis. He has already assisted several Jewish community members who are or were in hospice and seeking help. He plans to open dispensaries across Michigan starting in February.
Zach established the Wish Children’s Foundation endowment in 2019. He pledges to donate $50,000 annually for grants to deserving high school students for college or trade schools. Wish Premium will also host an annual toy and a quarterly food drive for Pontiac residents. His inspiration comes from his children, Mason and Luca. His wife, Ella, is an advocate and a passionate volunteer for local charities and schools.
His other passion is fashion. His new brand Raire Vintage is set to launch in February in Detroit and Los Angeles. The brand has been in the works for the last two years, and Zach has tapped former collaborators from labels such as Nike, Fyounk and Supreme.
