In operation since 1949, Pelican Rouge Coffee Solutions (formerly known as Autobar), is the UK’s largest and highest quality vending operator. With our unique Public Sector & Education vending solutions, and our dedicated team of industry professionals, we believe we are the best vending partner TUCO members.

We always aim to understand consumers and staff at each of our sites and we use these insights to make our services relevant, profitable, socially responsible and of the highest quality. We believe that by delivering equipment and products that meet the needs of the consumer, everyone wins!

We focus on partnering closely with our clients which, when coupled with our industry leading operations, allows us to maximize service levels throughout the contract period.

Our vending services include:

•    The maximum commercial return for clients
•    Café quality, 14oz/12oz, bean to cup, fair-trade hot drinks
•    Best-selling snack and cold drink brands (plus fair-trade, ethical, healthy and innovative product choices)
•    Flexible and reliable fully managed operations (with a rapid technical support service)
•    A full range of the latest equipment (attractive, specially branded, and 30% more energy efficient)
•    Cashless/contactless/Applepay payment for machines in high volume areas
•    Professional machine housing installation
