COLUMBUS, OH -- Founded in 1988 as a division of Shaffer Distributing Co., Columbus, OH-based Shaffer Services is celebrating 25 years as a jukebox and games operation. The services company was formed when Steve Shaffer, a third-generation distributor, acquired and merged three operations in central Ohio -- Ace Vending, Modern Music, and GO Coin.
Today, the vending firm is run by a fourth-generation family member, Andy Shaffer, who became its president earlier this year. He is also a past-president of the Amusement and Music Operators Association.
