Wilkes Vending is a third-generation family business and extremely proud to be one of the largest independently-owned Vending Operators within the UK.

We are a local, growing company, expanding year on year, currently celebrating our 70th Year and incredibly proud of our people, business ethics and the individual service we offer to each one of our highly valued customers.  

Our main business activities are the operation and maintenance of vending machines. Typical clients include Colleges/Universities, Purchasing Organisations, Leisure Centres, Local Authorities and many private companies. The majority of our work is undertaken in the North of England, operated from our Head Office in Wakefield, West Yorkshire and our Lancashire depot in Blackburn. 

Wilkes Vending currently employs over 100 people operating a total of 40 routes, with ten of those routes working from our Lancashire depot

Wilkes Vending is flexible, accommodating and keen to try numerous methods in which to benefit the income/service provided to all our Clients, old and new.  It is our firm belief that we are not only able to meet, but will make every attempt to exceed expectations.  

As a result of our long and successful history, we are financially secure, instilling total confidence within our Clients.  Wilkes Vending currently generates an annual turnover in excess of £5m.  Each machine, vehicle and property under our care is owned outright, providing stability and assurance to all clients and members of staff. 

The dedicated resources and personal service we offer is a quality we feel sets us apart from any other Vending Operator.  It is our wish to build a trusting and solid relationship between our organisations to move forward in the most positive way. Through the wide range of products available, teamwork and a happy working environment, this is something we aim to provide - at all times.
