We haven’t always been #1 in the vending and office coffee business in Greensboro and the surrounding Triad but we achieved that status through hard work, dedication to our clients’ needs and by staying on top of innovations in technology. Building on those three pillars of success, we now have over 1,000 vendors and 300 contract coffee accounts and we keep growing!
We started out in 1949 with a single cigarette vending machine operating out of the back of Matthew’s Grill on Main Street. By the mid-1970s, Greensboro Vending had grown to 200 machines and had added snacks and coffee. Sodas and sandwiches were next on the list and then the office coffee division was created in the1990s. The 21st Century brought the bottomless, double-filtered water cooler, specialized catering, fresh fruits and salads, healthy options and new vending technology like the Avanti Market cashless system. Special event catering, gourmet pizza, awesome coffees, ice cream socials and “give-away” promotions are just some of the things that we can do for you and your employees.
Excellence is our business.
