Vending machine service provider

Kafevend is a drinks and snacks vending machine service provider, supplying hot drinks, coffee vending machines, water and snack vending machines to SMEs and corporates across the UK. It is headquartered in Crawley with offices in London, Epping, Bristol, Manchester and Scotland.

Our investment funded the MBO of Kafevend from IKON Office Solutions. The investment allowed the management team to strengthen the sales force, and improvements in the quality of vended products created huge growth potential for the business. Kafevend successfully developed a leading product portfolio delivering refreshments to over 10,000 sites throughout mainland UK.
