About Us

How we began - In 1982, I started my career in the vending business employed by a local company to fill and clean vending machines. In 1989, I left the company to start my own vending business serving only a handful of locations with mechanical tabletop snack machines. Over the years, our company has developed into a full-service vending, micro market and office coffee company providing services to over 500 businesses, schools and office buildings throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding areas.

Apple Automatic Food Service began with a few simple philosophies:

Do business the old-fashioned way with a handshake
Deliver on promises, that what we say means something, and we do it
Not only meet our customers’ expectations, but exceed them

Passionate about our industry – We promote ethical business practices, and we are active members in our local and national vending associations.

Giving back to the community – Over the years, we have been providing charitable donations to our local Courage Center and American Red Cross. We are involved in many ways with the businesses and schools we service by participating in their annual United Way Drives, Little League, local fundraisers and educational scholarships.

Today, we continue to uphold our simple philosophies. We believe our company, along with the customers and suppliers we do business with, will continue to grow and prosper in the years to come.

Warmest regards,


Mark S. Young President
