5 Vending Machine Suppliers to Consider.

With there being so many vending machine suppliers in the United Kingdom, it can leave you wondering which is the best supplier to buy. You’ve spent a lot of time researching the top vending machine manufacturers on the market, but still can’t settle on the machine that’s right for you.

Every business owner has their own reasons why they may want to buy or upgrade the vending machine they have in their office or leisure facility. At Connect Vending, we have a wide variety of vending solutions that can be tailored to suit your business so that you have all your favourite food and drink options in the workplace.

Our piece looks at 5 vending machine suppliers you should consider for your workplace food and drink requirements. 


Coffetek has been at the forefront of food vending and refreshment solutions for more than three decades. Owned by Spanish vending machine company Azkoyen Group, the company specialises in manufacturing hot drink machines and office coffee machines. 

Our range of Coffetek machines are capable of producing a range of hot drinks, including tea, hot chocolate, espresso and instant coffee, as well as cold brew fresh milk coffees. If you’re looking to upgrade your hot drink offering, the Coffetek Neo brings fresh brewed tea and bean to cup coffee to your workplace, and will give you consistent quality drinks at high volumes.

If you’re looking for a compact coffee machine, then the Coffetek Vitro X1 tabletop coffee machine will take centre stage in your workplace. The X1’s easy-to-use interface makes it simple to order your favourite Americano or latte, in which the machine is able to make your favourite hot drink in seconds.


When you think of the top vending machine suppliers in the UK, you immediately think of Crane. The company has been leading the way in drinks and food vending for decades. Crane’s MEDIA platform combines its interactive touchscreen display with enhanced merchandising techniques, thus elevating the consumer vending purchasing experience.

If you are thinking about buying a snack vending machine which includes your own branding, the Crane Merchant Ambient Media 2 is worth considering. The 9-inch touch screen colour display is a great opportunity to engage consumers while also making it easier for them to buy multiple products at once with one transaction.

Looking for an eco-friendly cold drink vending machine? The Crane BevMax 4 is not only energy-efficient, but also has the latest technology to vend your favourite can of cola or bottle of juice in seconds. In terms of payment options, you can decide to pay for your soft drink with cash or using contactless.


Evoca is a name that’s synonymous with vending and coffee machines. The Italian-based company owns brands such as Necta and Saeco in which its products are used in more than 140 countries. 

Connect Vending supplies a wide range of Evoca food and drink vending machines, as well as coffee machines. If you are looking for a versatile vending solution that’s energy-efficient, but has all your favourite drinks and snacks, the Evoca Swing is the vending machine to have in your office.

When it comes to ordering your daily espresso or flat white, the Evoca Opera Touch’s 13.3 inch touchscreen provides lots of information about the drink you’re ordering. You can personalise your hot drink so that you can enjoy your coffee in the office or on your commute.


For more than a century, Franke has specialised in delivering catering, home and coffee solutions for families and businesses. The Franke Group has three businesses, which includes Franke Home Solutions, Franke Foodservice Systems and Franke Coffee Systems.

Our range of Franke coffee machines will ensure that you get the perfect cup of coffee that you will want to drink over and over again. Franke’s range of Swiss-built machines come with the latest self-cleaning hygiene technology, which means that you can order your favourite coffee with confidence.

If you’re in a busy office environment and your workforce appreciates a high quality hot drink fix, then the Franke A800 may be one to watch. Franke pride themselves on delivering great build quality and providing outstanding coffee, whatever your requirements. Its three-boiler system means there’s nothing to worry about in high-volume settings, as there’s always hot water ready to go from one cup to the next.

And with the growing demand for fresh milk coffees in the workplace, be it dairy milk or a non-dairy option, Franke is well worth exploring. Their fresh milk technology and range of peripherals give their range a great deal of flexibility to fit all settings.

Rhea Vendors

Now, we’ll be moving from Switzerland to Italy, and Rhea Vendors, a multinational hot drinks and coffee machine manufacturer who offer snacks, cold drinks and hot drinks machines, but also specialise in coffee solutions.

If you’re looking for something that fits a particular workplace aesthetic or are looking for something that looks sleek whilst remaining relatively compact, the laRhea range of machines are well worth considering. Why not start by taking a look at the laRhea Variplus Grande 2 Premium?

Their simple yet intuitive design makes for a fuss-free coffee vending experience, and with plenty of variations to suit different requirements, you’re sure to find something that fits the bill here.
