Accent Food Services Expands West With Ace Vending Merger
Monday, September 18, 2017
Ace Vending Inc. and Accent Food Services have completed an asset purchase agreement to bring Ace Vending Inc.’s strong customer relationships and sophisticated technology into the Accent family. This transaction represents the largest for Accent and will expand our Western U.S. presence under Accent’s West Division. The ownership group of Kevin Van Hazel, Wade Stooks, Chuck Walton, & JD Stooks will all play key roles in the continued success of Accent’s West Division. In addition, we expect that the entire Ace Vending service team will join Accent and continue to provide the highest-level service to customers as part of the Accent team.
“In support of our vision to build the best convenience solution company in the away from home retail environment, it is critical we recruit the best talent, partners, & geographic footprint. The team at Ace demonstrates best in class talent, process, and use of technology. I cannot think of a better fit for our journey,” said Josh Rosenberg, CEO of Accent Food Services.
“On behalf of my partners and our staff, we are excited to join the Accent Team. The opportunity to continue the brand we built, with my team, and the support Accent is a great outcome for all. We look forward to building our combined vision while stretching the boundaries for how and who we serve,” said Van Hazel, a Founder of Ace Vending Inc.
