Kepak has formed a collaboration with market leading service providers Nebrak, 365 Retail Markets and Coffetek, to extend its integrated food to go solutions for retail across into the Out of Home industries.

The food to go industry is growing at pace and set to reach over £20bn by 2026. As a result, the Micro Markets concept is having a big impact on the vending channel, providing the ideal option for companies looking for alternatives to costly catering solutions while offering hot, fresh and tasty meal options 24/7, every day of the year.

Following the launch of Rustlers into the OOH channel in 2019, Kepak saw the rise in demand for Micro Markets and the potential to work alongside market leading companies to offer customers a one stop shop for food to go solutions.

The quartet brings together their expertise in unattended retailing to provide customers with the ultimate turn-key operation, covering food to go, interior design and automated retail.

Carl Hunter at Kepak says: “Rustlers has been taking the lead in providing quality hot and convenient meal options for many years in the retail sector. These attributes work perfectly with unattended retail solutions and led us to establish great relationships with a number of innovative companies. Bringing together our expertise, we continue to develop and introduce market leading solutions.”

Paul Howard at Nebrak says: “Nebrak is always looking to innovate and deliver distinguished interior furniture solutions for clients who want to differentiate themselves by creating food and drink experiences. By working with forward-thinking leaders in their sector we have successfully realised and delivered a new vending and retail solution”.

Ian Johnston at Coffetek says: “Our mission is to become an industry reference for coffee systems in automated retail. This partnership brings together experts in the fields of food to go, interior design and automated retail to create next generation solutions through winning collaborations and partnerships”

Jeff Veres at 365 Retail Markets says: “365 Retail Markets will always aim to be a leader in the vending industry through personalised self-service technology partnerships. The quest is not only focused on our operators but our supplying partners, and the strategic partnerships crafted that we can go to market with.

In collaboration with the likes of Kepak, Nebrak, and Coffetek, we feel that we have taken it one step closer to achieving that inside the UK market and without each of their support, we would not be speaking with some of the clients we are today.”
