Welcome to Forward Vending and Catering – Essex Vending Machine Suppliers


At Forward Vending and Catering, we can cater for you if you require the very best in Essex vending machines. We have been in the business since way back in 1971, when we first started supplying vending machines of the highest quality to clients across the UK. We offer a wide range of catering vending machines and are now able to offer espresso and barista-type machines too.

Coffee has played a big role in our activities over recent years. We are now able to offer a wide range of machines for hot drinks, including table top, bean to cup, Cappuccino table top and push button machines. We always listen to feedback from our clients in order to continue catering to their needs, and to remain at the forefront of the market. What’s more is that we are now able to offer innovative Millicano machines too. Our clients don’t just have to settle for machines – we’re also able to provide all goods needed for the machines, including coffee, chocolate, powder, soups, cups and more. You’re welcome to get in touch with us at any point if you do have any questions about the solutions we offer.

We can count clients from a vast range of sectors amongst our clients. We supply Essex Vending Machines to a huge number of customers across the UK, particularly in the Midlands and the south of the UK. Our diverse catalogue of machines means we’re able to cater for a wide range of needs. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular types of machines we offer.

In Cup Machines


In-cup machines allow staff to access a cup of coffee easily, quickly and hygienically. Cups are served prefilled and sealed, before the drinks themselves are dispensed at the touch of a button. Cups of coffee work out at just 1p each, making in-cup machines ideal for companies keen to cut costs even if they’re giving out drinks for free.

Some of our most popular in-cup machines include the compact Mini Cup Flex vendor and the Refresh 700 In-Cup Machine. These machines don’t just dispense soup and coffee – they can also be filled with cold drinks for the summer. They are ideal for companies of all sizes from all industries and renowned for being easy to maintain and repair. Should you face any difficulties using your in-cup machines, just call us and we’ll be more than happy to help. You can buy vending packs in bulk if you wish, which will enable you to stay fully stocked up and avoid leaving your staff disappointed. What’s also great about these Essex vending machines is that they’re remarkably portable, so you should be able to move them around with ease whenever you need to.

Table-Top Vending Machines 


If your staff have become accustomed to the kind of high-quality coffee found in the High Street, we have the solution. Our table-top coffee machines can sit on the surface of your table top dispensing drinks of the standard you’d expect from a leading coffee house. These machines are easy to use, compact and cost-effective. They can make a vast range of drinks at the touch of a button, and you have a range of high-end machines to choose from, such as the Krea bean to cup, which is ideal for espresso fans. The Koro and Brilliance bean to cup machines also have a fantastic reputation, as does the Café Elite UV, a high-capacity machine also capable of providing a vast selection of drinks. We can also provide you with the pleasingly straightforward Cafelino Trio and the robust, dynamic Bolero Turbo XL 403.

Barista Machines


We are also renowned for our range of barista-type machines, which include the EXPOBAR 2 Group Compact; this offers a range of fantastic features, such as a steam arm for flawless milk frothing, automatic water filling, a copper boiler and a programmable cleaning cycle. This machine is ideal for restaurants, canteens, pubs and clubs as well as offices. This is just one of several high-end barista-style machines we supply.
