The UK’s leader in Locker and integrated Vending Solutions 

Vending by JSR is a family-run business covering the whole of the UK supplying and servicing automated retail solutions designed to sell goods and fresh food directly to consumers.

The family run business (JSR Services Ltd) is built on egg production and were exploring methods to sell their fresh eggs direct to customers. 8 years ago, they purchased the first locker style vending machine to sell fresh eggs directly from the farm.

Since it was the first of its kind in the UK, some other forward-thinking farmers approached them to see if they could source more.  In negotiations with Roesler Ltd from Hamburg, Germany, they were thrilled to be offered the contract to distribute these machines in the UK. Thus, Vending by JSR was born.

Over the years, due to customer demands their vending technology has developed into larger touchscreen multi-function machines.  At that time, they were the only vending machine that had software control allowing them to have a class leading fully remote monitoring solution called “Vending Web” which is still industry-leading today. 

Fast forward 8 years, Vending by JSR have supplied over 250 vending machines to food producers all around the UK. Financially benefiting them as they take higher margins selling directly to the consumer and with lower overheads selling through their vending machine.
