Meet your coach: Lakinya Francis

Looking for a source of additional income that wouldn’t require too much of an investment of either time or money, iKrave Vending’s founder Lakinya Francis, discovered an opportunity to start-up a small vending machine service company. Though the initial start-up cost was reasonably affordable and her efforts took no time away from her full-time work, Lakinya found that finding high-quality equipment that wouldn’t break the bank and then obtaining locations in which to place her machines proved to be a challenge. However, her tenacity finally paid off after months of searching for a used machine that met her expectations and she was able to soon start enjoying the profits after placing her vending machine in a local mechanic’s shop.

After growing, Lakinya was able to partner with friend Jessica Brown to further expand their reach, adding more vending machines in a variety of locations.
