Kafevend is one of the fastest-growing providers of workplace refreshments and vending machines in the UK


Kafevend was formed in 1992 as a subsidiary of Southern Business Group operating in the South East. In 1996 Kafevend was acquired by IKON Office Solutions Inc, a company that was then acquired by Ricoh in 2008.

Kafevend grew successfully every year, opening a second office in Enfield in 1996, a third office in Leeds in 1999 and a fourth office in Bristol in 2002. In 2005 with the support of ISIS Equity Partners, the management of Kafevend successfully completed a Management Buy Out. This provided a fantastic opportunity for Kafevend to expand and fulfil its potential.


Since then Kafevend has opened offices in Runcorn (2006) and London (2010) with a team in Scotland being introduced in 2010. More recently in 2010, Kafevend and Mars Drinks formed a significant partnership, built around our strong relationships, clear communication and exceptional customer focus. We are an extraordinary organisation - one to which Mars are proud to entrust their reputation and your satisfaction.
