Five Star Announces Acquisition Of Metro Atlanta Vending Company

Aug 22, 2022

Five Star Food Service announces the completion of the acquisition of metro Atlanta’s Elite Vending Company, an independent operation that services Fulton, Cobb, Douglas, and Clayton counties in Georgia. The acquisition adds to the company’s existing base of business in the Atlanta region. This is not the first transaction between the two companies. In 2015, Five Star acquired routes from Elite that, at the time, were based in competing geographic areas.

“Our growth into the Atlanta region in 2018 made way for this opportunity to partner with Elite on another transaction. We are thrilled to add multiple routes to our business in northwest Atlanta. Josh and the team at Elite have done a great job serving their clients, and Five Star is excited for the opportunity to continue to serve them,” commented Richard Kennedy, Five Star’s President and CEO.

Elite Vending Company was founded by Josh Matthews in 2002. Prior to starting Elite, Josh worked as an operations manager for Eagle Vending, now Five Star, for nearly a decade.
