The Empire Story- It is a real life, Cinderella Story. The main owner Jonathan Abernathy who is now 30 years old, started the
business with a couple of vending machines that he serviced out of the trunk of his car after his regular day job. His vision of
owning and operating his own company started early in life as he would use his allowance money and buy candy to sell at
school and kept investing his profits into buying and selling more. Once out of school he saw an ad on Craigs List of a guy
selling vending machines. He bought them and that is where the EMPIRE story started. Little by little he was able to keep
purchasing more machines and then came upon an opportunity to purchase a small operator. This is when his father and now
partner- Keith Abernathy quit his regular job and together they expanded and set forth on the journey to become an Empire.
I started working with Empire when COVID hit, at which time they were just starting with their first micro market. With great
resources like GTP and 365 retail markets technology the last 2 years have been a steady growth to now more than 125
markets. Empire has not just expanded into Micro Markets but also into Office Coffee Service and grown their vending
business beyond Houston and into Austin and San Antonio. It gives me immense pride to see a small family owned and
operated business have such a success story. Empire has become a leader in the great state of TEXAS.
