Joshua Giambra
Joshua Giambra, owner of Giambra
Vending in Panama City, FL, started
his business in 2005 at the age of
22 with three Red Bull machines and
five honor boxes. From there, steady
growth brought Giambra Vending to 300
assets on location in 2018. But in October 2018, Category
5 Hurricane Michael landed and took down 100 machines.
Not knowing if there was still a vending company,
Giambra decided to come back better than before. With
that drive, he upgraded 75% of the business with credit
card readers and inventory control.
