Aimee Eklund began her vending career at a very young age in 1999, working part time in the warehouse for her stepfather, Mark Young. She moved up through the ranks, making menus, placing orders, and eventually assuming full responsibility for product purchasing.
Not bad for a 21-year-old.
And she loves the business. “I love food,” she explained.
One thing she especially likes about her current role is seeing all the new products being introduced. She also likes being involved in providing meals for people in the industrial locations the company serves.
Aimee developed an interest in photography at an early age, and in the last few years, she has established herself as a professional in this field. Long term, she hopes to eventually devote all of her time to this passion.
She has utilized her photographic skills developing marketing literature for Apple Automatic Food Service.
Aimee took a leadership role in implementing DEX handhelds in the company's routes and in automating the inventory controls and accounting. At some point, she hopes to get a degree in business.
