Vegan Vend has arrived The Galleries.
Following the success of their first all-vegan food vending machine, aka Daisy, at The Island on Nelson Street, Vegan Vend have now also installed a machine in The Galleries too.
Named Violet by public vote, the machine is located on the top floor, opposite the car park and close to the entrance from Union Street.
About Vegan Vend
Vegan Vend is a Prince’s Trust supported business, which began when owner Remi found it a struggle to find quick and easy on-the-go vegan options. She wanted a variety of choices that not only looked great, but delivered on flavour too. The idea of an all-vegan food vending machine was born.
Remi says: “I knew I wanted to start the business in Bristol so I moved here and ran a three-week crowdfunding campaign to pay for the first machine. Thanks to the public, our target was hit and the vending machine was bought.”
The first vending machine, which is decorated with a colourful design by local artist Hope Talbot (@hopetalbot_ on Instagram), was named Daisy by a public vote.
The new machine, Violet, has been designed by another local artist, Liv Caro (@livcaroart)
“My dream is to have more machines and cover each one in a different design by a local artist”, says Remi.
Remi uses two main suppliers – Kind Cakes Mean Bakes (@kindcakesmeanbakes_bristol), a talented local baker who makes delicious sweet treats and yummy pastries and The Real Wrap (@realwrapco), who provide a range of tasty vegan sandwiches and wraps. You will also find delicious brownies from Dark Matter (@eatdarkmatters) in the machine – try the salted caramel swirl brownie; you won’t regret it.
