BUNN has innovated service delivery with technologies including field service management, IoT, and AR.

More than 170 years ago, Jacob Bunn opened a grocery store in Springfield, IL. As the story goes, a young Abe Lincoln was one of his first customers. That grocery store evolved into Bunn Capitol Wholesale Grocery Company, which was later managed by George R. Bunn, who founded a beverage equipment division in the late 1950s. Bunn-O-Matic Corporation was officially incorporated as a separate entity in 1963, and since has been a leading beverage equipment manufacturer.
