Brandon Stallings, a Jacksonville native and graduate of Florida State University, started his first vending business while still in school at age 20. Before graduation, he took up an interest in health and wellness, and on February 29th, 2012, launched SmartBox.
The company embraced a sharp focus on wellness, stocking machines with natural and organic snacks and beverages. But it took only a short time to gain key business insights about what else is missing from the quiet vending machine industry. In 2016, he expanded into the micro-market business where customers can buy fresh salads, wraps, snacks, drinks and more using any form of digital currency. In 2017 SmartBox partnered with Condaxis Coffee and Tea creating an exclusive line of blends only available for SmartBox customers.
