CANTON, MA -- Next Generation Vending and Food Service announced that it has sold its foodservice division to Lessing's, a foodservice and hospitality company based on Long Island, in Great River, NY. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
"We have always been proud of our excellent service, but we have chosen to refocus our organization solely on vending services," said Next Generation Vending chief operating officer Joe Rogan. Headquartered in Canton, MA, Next Generation delivers vending and office coffee services for thousands of clients in the Northeast.
As a result of the acquisition, Lessing's will add some 80 college and business accounts, expanding beyond Long Island into Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and upstate New York.
Owned and operated continuously by the Lessing family since the company's founding in 1890, Lessing's has long been one of the Northeast's leading providers of food and beverage services to colleges, businesses and the general public through a variety of dining and hospitality operations. The company has 1,000 employees and operates in more than 120 locations, including eight full-service restaurants and a hotel.
