Royal Vending uses dynamic routing to service pantries, a rising demand in Portland.

But the innovation won't stop here; the company also plans to leverage its online ordering, warehouse and delivery capabilities to add an online store for customers this year.

Owner Ryan Harrington has studied technology since he launched the company 10 years ago with two vending machines working out of his garage. In four years, he grew to 100 machines.
