Two teen age brothers ran the business alone for the next 12 years before hiring their first employee in the late 80's. Today with over 20 employees, KoffeeKing is one of the largest and most respected independent coffee and food service companies in Central New York. We Service over 650 customers, with coffee service, bottled water, catering, and a complete line of vending machines.

Koffee King History

We are a local, family owned business that has grown from virtually nothing into the largest local, independently owned coffee and food service company in Syracuse.

Being blessed with terrific parents, my Dad not only taught us principles that have lasted a lifetime, he introduced us to the vending business as a career that he started late in life. After learning the ropes, my brother Gary and I went out on our own with our first machine at a gas station where we sold coffee and hot chocolate for just fifteen cents a cup! For the next twelve years, we ran the business alone. In the late 1980’s we hired our first employee, leased a bigger building, and we were on our way. The rest is history.

Today, Koffee King has twenty-five employees who service some 650 customers in the Central New York area with restaurant and office coffee service, bottled water, catering, paper products, and a complete line of vending machines. We have matured into a total food service company that offers professional expertise and personal service to all of our valued customers. This is what sets Koffee King apart from other companies. 

We would love the opportunity to prove it to you.
