The Empire Story

Empire was born from a single vending machine and a dream. From the Abernathy family’s garage and a five machine vending route, to becoming a nation wide leader expanding beyond the original South West Texas Region. Empire has solidified itself as a leading small business in the competitive world of vending, markets, and coffee.

Jonathan Abernathy started the company in 2012 at 21 years old. Working two full time jobs at the time, Jonathan knew he had a desire for something much greater. After hours upon hours of research, he finally settled on vending machines as the best business to begin with smaller capital. He found a vending route for sale on Craigslist, and sought the funding from his father Keith.

Keith Abernathy was a CPA, and the Vice President of Finance at a large oil company in Houston before deciding to take a gamble and lead an Empire. Keith joined full time in the Spring of 2014, and the two together have grown the company into what it is today, the premiere vending machine company in the South West Texas Region. Now with Jordan Abernathy joining the team as Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
