“This powerful piece is important as we continue to work to shape the image of the industry by showcasing key elements of our business:  customer service; entrepreneurship/career opportunities; technology and providing “better for you” options.  Our thanks to Craig and the entire team at Monumental Vending for telling his story and in doing so, helping the entire industry,” said Roni Moore, NAMA’s VP of Marketing and Public Relations.
