ROCKY HILL, CT – The Connecticut Vending Association will hold its first general membership meeting under the leadership of its new president, Scott Miller of Maple Hill Farms (Bloomfield), on Wednesday, April 4. It will be held at the Dakota Steak House here.

Miller succeeds Mark Lathrop from Lathrop Vending (Uncasville, CT) who was instrumental in protecting the industry on the legislative front, including maintaining Connecticut's vending sales tax exemption, during his tenure as CVA president. | SEE STORY

Topping the agenda will be a recap of the positive publicity CVA garnered at the state capitol, where its members met with the Gov. Dannel Malloy and other key legislators. | READ MORE

Coca-Cola of Northern New England's Steven Perrelli will share the details of Gov. Malloy's recent visit to Coca Cola's new facility in Waterford, CT.

Perrilli, an active participant in CVA and vocal vending industry advocate, was among those who arranged the governor's tour of Coca-Cola of Southeastern New England's new distribution and vending machine service center in Waterford.

He took the opportunity to point out to the governor that Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Southeastern New England, a subsidiary of Coca-Cola of Northern New England, has been an important contributor to the business in the region. The plant now employs 110 and distributes more than 3 million cases of Coca-Cola products annually in Connecticut and parts of Rhode Island. Coca-Cola officials hosting the event also thanked Malloy for fostering a positive business environment in Connecticut.

The sprawling 85,000 sq.ft. facility combines operations formerly housed in two states into a single more efficient and eco-friendly facility. It includes warehouse space, a truck maintenance depot, a vending machine service shop and a drive-through loading dock, along with administrative offices.
