Risking it all for something better

What is the Seventh Wave Refreshments Story? What makes us different? Why do we exist? It’s about JOY! It’s about PEOPLE! It’s about PASSION!

Have you ever felt so passionate about something that you risk absolutely everything to see it come to life? That is where Seventh Wave Refreshments came from.

Our founders have been in the industry for quite some time. They both had successful careers and the honor of working together to create and install refreshments solutions for hundreds of Atlanta customers. They were a perfect team consisting of a super-passionate salesperson and an amazing “nothing is too big” operations guru!”

Until one day, due to changes beyond their ­control, a “WHY” started creeping in. Why are we running so hard? Why do we care so much about this industry? Why does this matter? One day the answer came … it was always about the people! Our suppliers, our customers, our family, our co-workers. They turned that “WHY” into a “WHAT IF” and realized that their mission was greater than themselves.

They took a leap of faith and founded a greater movement in refreshments – a movement to bring JOY! As the movement took shape, we were able to bring in the best in coffee, the tastiest food experiences, and the most loyal manufacturers you could ask for all who share this vision with us. Seventh Wave Refreshments is founded in passion for our mission, innovative solutions fueled by the greatest suppliers and partners in the industry, and surrendered hearts that have led us to where we are today!

Our integrity and passion cultivate strong working relationships

“At Hanna Brothers, we believe that a great meal brings people together. We also believe that the best products in the world are meaningless without a professional team delivering and servicing customers at the highest levels of trust and performance. As a fellow vendor to Chick-fil-A, we have had the privilege of working alongside Linda Saldana and have watched her earn the trust of our mutual clients again and again. She has become our go-to reference for new opportunities in her field of specialization and is a perfect complement to what we do inside an organization. It’s “refreshing” to see her work.”
