TUCKER, GA -- Southern Refreshment Services Inc., a Canteen franchise headquartered here, has appointed Jeff Parks as its president.

Parks worked for 15 years as an executive at Madison, WI-based CL Swanson Corp. He left the company in 2009 as president to launch Parks Strategies, a consultancy focused on the noncommercial foodservice industry.

Canteen Vending Services Inc. acquired CL Swanson's vending and dining business earlier this year. | SEE STORY

Southern Refreshment chief executive Dan Hart said Parks will relocate from Wisconsin to Georgia, home base to the company's 42 vending routes and five coffee service routes that serve almost half a million people a day in the greater Atlanta area.

Hart, who was honored as the National Automatic Merchandising Association's 2012 Operator of the Year, was featured on the cover of Vending Times' June issue. | SEE STORY
