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. Kevin, Wade, and Chuck still own 100% of the company and are proud to provide employment to many families in Arizona and across this great nation. Ace Vending is a great example of the American entrepreneurial spirit. Through hard work, integrity and innovation Ace Vending has become the best choice in Vending and continues to grow and prosper.
