Canteen Vending Services Inc. has acquired St. Louis, Mo.-based Jackson Brothers, which operated 12 vending and coffee service routes and three manual feeding locations, from owner Kendall Jackson. Jackson, who founded the company in 1978, said all 49 employees, including his son, Jimmy, and his daughter, Jessica, will remain with Canteen.
The purchase did not include Jackson Brothers operating facility, Jackson said. He said the vending and coffee service routes will be folded into Canteen’s existing operations.
The purchase did not include Springfield, Mo.-based Jackson Brothers of the South, which became a Canteen franchise earlier this year.
