According to a recent survey by the Automatic Vending Association in the UK a staggering £6bn products are vended each year. Vending alone is responsible for 15k jobs throughout the UK. The most popular vended products include beverages, with coffee being among the most favourite vended items purchased by consumers.
Vending is a growing sector within the UK economy. Our lifestyles and need for products 24/7 is why vending has become such a great success from humble beginning in 1880 the first coin operated machine allowed the user to create postcards, now you can buy drinks, snacks, personal hygiene products to suggest but a few ideas.
Many vending franchise opportunities are van based. Ideal for a would-be franchisee who wants to escape from the 9-5, and would enjoy visiting outlets within the franchise territory replenishing, maintaining equipment and most importantly collecting the cash!

Coffee Shop Franchises
As the British cafe culture grows last year the UK spent over £7.9bn in coffee shops.
The number of coffee shops grew to well past 20,000 in 2015, driven by a 12% increase in the number of branded coffee shop chains, according to the Project Cafe 2016 UK report from Allegra World Coffee Portal.
Costa, Starbucks and Caffè Nero, which when combined control more than half of the branded coffee shop market, led the coffee shop sector with a growth of 15% to an annual turnover of an amazing £3.3bn
With this sort of grow you can see why some many successful coffee businesses decided to franchise to enable them to compete with the major brands and take a slice of this ever growing market. Some of these coffee franchises are the traditional coffee shop like the above major brands but some have also been innovative and even made mobile coffee shop franchises, a coffee shop on wheels by converting vans to deliver to offices, industrial estates etc which both lower the businesses overheads and also brings coffee shops to more people that maybe would work too far away from a traditional coffee shop.
