Cory started his own vending operation in high school after his parents told him if he wanted to drive, he’d have to buy his first car. He grew his route to 26 machines and saw firsthand the need for better technology along his journey.
Cory met Evan while they were working together on avionics at Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, Ga. After Gulfstream, they both transferred to Georgia Tech to continue their pursuit of electrical engineering. Throughout this time, Cory shared all of his entrepreneurial adventures with Evan, and together, the two became hooked on business.
Gimme was founded in Atlanta, Ga., when the two Georgia Tech engineering students combined their vending experience and technical knowledge to disrupt the unattended retail industry with a last-mover advantage.
