Vegan Vend is a Prince's Trust supported business and began in 2018 when I (Remi) found it a struggle to find quick and easy on-the-go vegan options where I could be met with a variety of choices that not only looked great, but delivered on flavour too. So the idea of an all-vegan food vending machine was born.
I knew I wanted to start the business in Bristol so I moved here and ran a 3 week crowdfunding campaign to pay for the first machine. Thanks to the public, our target was hit and the vending machine was bought. The first vending machine was named Daisy by a public vote and adorned with a colourful design by local artist Hope Talbot.
We now have machines in Bristol located at UWE Frenchay, UWE Glenside, Desklodge House and both BIMM Sites.
I have 2 main suppliers - Kind Cakes Mean Bakes, a talented local baker who makes delicious sweet treats and yummy pastries for Daisy and The Real Wrap, who provide a range of tasty vegan sandwiches and wraps.
We hope you enjoy eating the delicious food from our machines just as much as we do!
