NationalLink Inc. Celebrates 25th Anniversary

NationalLink Inc., one of the largest providers of ATM solutions in the United States, is proudly celebrating its twenty-fifth business anniversary in the ATM market.

Sam Kandah, who serves as president, founded the Glendora, California-based company in 1992 with a focus on credit card processing. With the deregulation of ATMs in 1996, Kandah took the opportunity to add the ATM product line, allowing businesses of all sizes to earn additional income through managed ATM programs. NationalLink now has a network of over 16,000 ATMs in all fifty states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands and is proud to serve cannabis retailers nationwide.


Since the U.S. has yet to legalize cannabis at the federal level, this poses challenges to retailers operating in states where it is legal to conduct cannabis sales. Sales that involve a card transaction or credit card processing of any kind may be flagged as suspicious, but cash remains an acceptable form of payment. The solution to this issue is having an ATM inside cannabis retail locations so customers can withdraw cash to pay for purchases. NationalLink serves cannabis retailers across the country, providing turnkey ATM placements at no cost to merchants.

Over the past twenty-five years, NationalLink has expanded its product and service offering to provide comprehensive cash management solutions, adding SmartSafes, cash recyclers, and cash-handling equipment to the product line. Sam explains, “We responded to customer demand for expanded services in reliable, secure, and efficient cash logistics solutions.”

NationalLink serves a diverse B2B marketplace including banks, financial institutions, credit unions, hotels, malls, convenience stores, gas stations, hospitals, universities, entertainment centers, and cannabis businesses across the nation.

Business Development Director Herman Trejo, a NationalLink employee for twenty years, proudly states, “We’re always innovating so we can offer customers even better ways to manage cash and payment processing in the ever-changing cannabis business platform.
