Goochland Vending Operator & Team named “2019 Pros To Know” by Automatic Merchandiser Magazine and


Manakin-Sabot, VA: November 21, 2019. For Release on or after December 13, 2019

Located in Manakin-Sabot, VA, Healthy Living Vending is a new vending and micro market business that Kimberly Jenkins and her team built from scratch without sacrificing their vertical market strategy of “healthy” and “better for you” vending.

Driven by the goal of doing a common thing uncommonly well, Healthy Living Vending offers better for you products and service that exceeds the expectations of its customers. By taking on the initiatives of leadership and mentoring, Jenkins and her team have created their own operation manuals and inside training programs for every position within the company.

The challenge they face in the company is to continue to grow their customer base while simultaneously building a solid infrastructure of hardware, software and general operation systems. To do so, they have partnered with companies like USA Technologies for cashless payment options and VendingZoo for cloud based vending software with mobile inventory apps for route drivers. Additional industry challenges that require all operators to improvise, adapt and overcome include unattended micro market, water and office coffee service offerings and of course the current low unemployment rate.

The sixth annual Automatic Merchandiser and Pros to Know Award recognizes vending, micro market and office coffee service industry professionals who are leading initiatives to help prepare their company, organization and the industry for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This award highlights both individual and group achievements that promote industry innovation and future growth.

Automatic Merchandiser and’s mission is to facilitate the success and growth of the vending, micro market and office coffee service (OCS) industry by reporting on industry issues and providing actionable insight, future trending and hands-on information regarding products, technology, industry and operations management.
