Provender Australia Story 

Provender, started life as Snack Systems (NZ) Ltd in 1991 as an honour vending business predominantly delivering Snack Boxes to businesses under the ‘Have A Snack!’ brand. Initially a pilot programme over some months was used to test the all new “honour vending” concept to New Zealand.

By January 1994 there were 15 Franchise Owners in a solid nation-wide network. As a result of sub-dividing and the re-allocation of customers, by October 1999 there were 39 Franchise Owners operating franchises of various sizes in New Zealand and 20 in Australia and at the start of 2002 there were 54 in New Zealand alone. By mid 2003 that number was over 70 and by late 2005 approaching 90.

In 2008 Provender purchased Australian Vending 24seven, subsequently further expanding the reach of this successful vending enterprise.  In 7 years, Provender Australia has grown throughout Australia and at the Franchise Management Office in Sydney we support a team of franchise owner’s driving their businesses.

Market penetration has continued to grow in spite of intensified competition from other snack and drink vending organisations. These achievements are testimony to the inherent strength in the Provender franchise system, effective operations, management and careful selection of Franchise Owners.

Currently we have 55 Franchise Owners in Australia.
