In this episode, host Bob Tullio sat down with Linda Saldana, co-founder of Seventh Wave Refreshments in Atlanta, to talk about her professional and closely connected spiritual journey.

Chances are, if you are in the convenience services business, you have heard the name, Linda Saldana. In 2023, Automatic Merchandiser named her as one of the Most Influential Women in Convenience Services.

In this episode, host Bob Tullio sat down with Linda Saldana to talk about her professional and her closely connected spiritual journey. Largely because of her visibility on social media and her presence at NAMA events – including the NAMA Show, the Fly-In and CTW – Linda has become a highly recognized name in the convenience services industry in a relatively short period of time. She joined the industry almost 12 years ago, rising to sales director at Southern Refreshment Service and fell in love with the business.

She co-founded Seventh Wave Refreshments in Atlanta in 2020, with a mission to “Bring Joy to the Workplace” during a most unsettling time – in the middle of a pandemic. Her faith, passion, perseverance and energy – all makes for a good story.

Later this month, be sure to listen to part two of the Linda Saldana journey, including business strategies and industry insights.
