The idea of Invenda came to our founder Jon Brezinski when he was managing a metro ticket machine project in Philadelphia. He realized how much more advanced these machines were compared to ordinary snack machines.
After visiting countless industry events and fairs and speaking with industry and thought leaders, his hunch was confirmed: Disruption and innovation in the vending industry were long overdue. His realization started our journey.
