Over 30 years ago, Paul Pietrowski started a small vending company in Corbin, Kentucky with the purchase of 500 one cent bubble gum machines to place in various businesses in the area. The company was called Tri-County Vending. Over the years, the business grew with the addition of various other types of snack food and vending machines. Paul, along with his son, Paul Jr., soon moved their operations out of their garage, hiring employees and adding routes to keep up with their strong growth.
Paul retired and sold his company to the Pepsi Cola Bottling Company of Corbin, Kentucky and it became Breaktime Vending Southeast. Paul Pietrowski Jr. has continued to work for the company and is currently in a senior level management role. The company continued to grow and expand its footprint in the Southeastern Kentucky area.
The company moved into a 50,000 square foot state of the art distribution center in a major Corbin Industrial Park. Over the years, Breaktime Vending acquired other vending operations in the area, including companies located in the Mount Vernon and Middlesboro, Kentucky areas.
Breaktime Acquired Madison Vending Services in Richmond, Kentucky from Shirley Revel, who had owned the company for the past 30 years. This expanded Breaktime’s service area into Lexington and the surrounding area. Over the next couple of years two additional vending companies in the Lexington and Berea area were purchased and were integrated into Madison Vending Services operation.
Breaktime acquired the assets of G and S Vending in London, Kentucky from Gary Elliot, who had founded the company 30 years prior. Gary remained with the company and is in a senior management role for the combined operations. A new distribution facility was built in Richmond in 2012 to service the rapid growth in this area.
Today, Breaktime/Madison Vending services multiple counties in Eastern and Central Kentucky as well as Northern Tennessee from it’s three sales and operations facilities. Currently operating over 25 routes and several micro market locations, Breaktime Vending prides itself on its excellent customer service, its people, its state of the art technology and the wide array of quality products it offers its customers. We look forward to remaining a family owned business and being a part of the future growth in the areas we service in the years to come.
