Benders Verona Vending Cups – 2 times winner of Vendies Best Cups

Tuesday November 1, 2016

Research published by the Automatic Vending Association (AVA) from its latest industry census found that the UK vending industry as a whole had a turnover of £1.5 billion in 2015. The average hot beverage vending machine was dispensing 282 units per week and consumers are expecting a larger variety of high quality premium coffee options.

Benders single wall paper vending cups are specifically developed to support the vending of premium hot drinks. As an industry specialist, Benders understand vending, and understand that performance is key, which is why their vending cups’ design, size, shape and construction is engineered for reliability. Driven by the influence of the coffee house culture, the deep, warm colour palette of the Verona design compliments coffee bar culture seamlessly. This enables operators to take full advantage of the growth in image and service quality today’s consumer expects.
