After 30 years of sales, operations, and project management in the energy sector, I have returned to Mississippi. Although I have lived all over the world, it is great to be home again.

It is also great to be working in a field of equipment sales that I enjoy! I love going to food trucks and carnival food trailers to try the creations that are unique in that atmosphere. It is a great way to try new things and experience different chefs' ideas on the same old, same old.

I hope to use my eclectic world experience to assist customers to get the product that best suits their needs!

Hi, I'm Tonya.

I'm a mother of 3 wonderful, but crazy kids. My husband, their father, now watches over us from heaven. We miss him every single day!

Most days, you'll catch us in the pool, or playing one of our many board games. It's always a blast playing, but one of the kids always ends up mad. Haha.

I believe you'll never work a day in your life if you truly love what you do. And it doesn't get any better than helping others to accomplish their dreams. Let me help you make your dream come true!

Hi, I'm Paula, a girl born and raised in New Orleans. I'm married to my soul mate who completes me. I am now a Yaya, and nana to eight grandchildren who have stolen my soul. I'm loud, sassy but that's the Italian, Cajun in me. (lol) Off-grid I'm an author of three books so far. When I need a break from writing, and I get that drive to create, my next venture would be to make primitive dolls. From a young child, my first passion among passions is art. I love charcoal drawing, acrylic, mixed media and oil paintings.

If I'm out and about, I love traveling and trying new restaurants with my hubby.

Hi, my name is Jude (Sam). The things I love most in life are hanging with friends, traveling, photography, cooking and spending time with my loved ones.

I think of myself as a mysterious, a little timid and yet outgoing person, although I've also been known to crank jokes when circumstances required.

I've been in the business for years, and I must say, I am having so much fun working and surrounding by great people at this company in which I never really got to do with my previous employment. It made me look forward spending more months and years of work with this company.

Hi, my name is Jhienny (Jeannie) I have been working with UsedVending since 2017.

I am married since 2012 with one child. I am a food lover, I love listening to music, watching movies with my family (action/suspense/comedy/sci-fi/you  name it), and it really excites me to travel unexpectedly/without planning, especially going to the beach (which happens always every year).

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life" - this really describes my experience working with the team, because they're great people. I am more than happy to help as much as I can.

Founder / President

Hey, I'm Eric! Great to have you here because we love making dreams come true! UsedVending was created out of my own desperation in searching for a career change in 1998 with a backporch prayer that found the path when I had none. I left Lockheed in 1999 a week after my first daughter was born. We have 2 boys and 2 girls now - along with 2 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, ducks, fish, etc... LOL, my wife won't stop!

We expect and receive nothing but honesty and integrity from our staff which makes business and life easy to love. They are the reason for our success, and you can't imagine how hard they work to protect you, our buyers and sellers.

We've made many friends over the years, and this is our pride & joy... have a look...
