In 1984, Wayne began vending with a gum ball machine as a side job to his full-time position at Goddard Space Flight Center. Over the next 12 years, his vending business grew and he quit his job at Goddard and vended full-time. He built a substantial vending business with 100 machines on the street. In September of 1996, Wayne & Amy opened Vend Central’s doors at 2010 Washington Boulevard. Since then our business has grown steadily each year. In 2009, Amy became owner of the company, and we moved into a new spacious location at 3914 Vero Road. Our customers come from all over Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. We have an exceptional team of employees and we have terrific customers!
