PHOENIX, AZ – Ace Vending, a full line vending service operator recently purchased two industrial buildings, one in Gilbert and another in Tucson. The company is privately owned and provides full service coffee, fresh food, snacks and beverage vending throughout the entire United States.
Ace Vending was founded in 1998 by Kevin Van Hazel, Wade Stooks and Chuck Walton. The three partners grew up together in Casa Grande Arizona and have been lifelong best friends. Ace Vending started in a garage in Phoenix Arizona with one vending machine, a pick-up truck and three strong backs. It has since grown into a nationwide company with thousands of accounts.
