For those who follow us on Twitter, you may have noticed our little poll that asked our followers just how many KitKat varieties there were in Japan. It may seem a strange question, but a good one nonetheless because the answer is simply staggering. As 58% of you correctly guessed, there were indeed over 200 variations of chocolate wafer bar in production. And as this title *ever so subtly* hints at, there’s actually 350 of them…
When you’re an advanced vending company with a customer-centric approach like what we have, positive customer care results are almost to be expected. But thanks to a committed team that consistently push the boundaries for our customers, we never rest on our laurels. So you can image how chuffed we were to see some excellent customer care results once again for 2018!
We’ve posted an article like this before, but there seems to be few new machines popping up now so it’s only right to share an ‘update’. It’s hard to believe that such vending machines around the world exist, especially when you primarily deal in workplace refreshments like us! But without further ado, here’s some of the best vending machines from around the world…
It wouldn’t be the great British winter without a generous helping of snow and ice and it certainly hasn’t disappointed so far. And with even more forecast, getting to and from work is now a depressing chore. Such harsh conditions place even more emphasis on making your workplace a positive environment for your employees, as nobody wants to be heading out and about unless they really have to. Our hot drinks machines are perfect all year round, but extra special in the winter…

We recently found a couple of statistics that probably answer this question better than we ever could. 75% of employees believe that having high quality coffee in the workplace proves that the employer cares about their wellbeing, whilst almost the same figure said they would recommend their office as a good place to work because of access to high quality coffee.
2019 is here and with that comes an exciting lineup of vending machines. The Krea Touch from Evoca is just one.

Make 2019 the year you bring the taste of the coffee shop into your workplace…
The New Year is now upon us and with that comes a host of resolutions that we’d all love to stick to. From eating healthier to hitting the gym at least a couple of times a week, we’re all desperate to better ourselves after a Christmas period undoubtedly consumed with lots of alcohol and lots of chocolate…Step one, before anything else however, is to set manageable goals.
And just like that, 2018 is almost over. In similar fashion to 2017, 16 and all those before, another year has whizzed by in the blink of an eye. This year has seen new vending machine additions, charitable updates and special days and between each and everyone, 2018 has been a fantastic year for both the company and the vending industry. One that we can all be proud of.
Despite the big push from the government, there is still not enough being done for effective recycling. Walkers (a popular product brand found in vending machines) is looking to change this, with the first ever Nationwide recycling scheme for crisp packets. It launched on Monday 10th December and will be advertised on Walkers crisp packets from January 2019.
