IRVING, TX -- CDS Vending Inc. has announced a program designed to assist veterans to make the transition from military service to small-business employment or ownership.

To support this program, the company has established the CDS Vending & Food Service Academy with the objective of offering America's veterans the opportunity to begin new careers in food and beverage industry. The academy has prepared a four-week course with a curriculum providing best-practices instruction, counseling, on-the-job field training and motivational presentations.

"The United States of America's service members are extremely well-trained and have the drive, self-discipline and skills that are essential for the foodservice industry," said CDS Vending president and chief executive Carl D. Shepherd, a U.S. Navy veteran.

Shepherd founded CDS Vending Inc. in 1999 to develop and manage vending and high-volume food and beverage supply programs for businesses, government organizations and nonprofit institutions. Since then, he has built the company into a recognized high-quality, dependable veteran and minority-owned enterprise. CDS has the capability to supply international, U.S. government facilities and businesses.
