Aurora Café is a Slovenian family-business vending operator providing high quality vending services since 1997.

Oto Helbl, Director of Aurora Café, explained why the company has joined the EVA, “We are really honoured to join EVA after 23 years in vending business, which happened on symbolic date, 1st of October – International coffee day. Our main reason for joining the EVA is the desire for cooperation, information and support.
As we all know year 2020 is not the nicest year for business and we are all in the same story where we have to struggle for our existence. The events with personal meetings like fairs Venditalia and EU Vend that are very important to us are also missing and leaving a gap in business socialising.
We wish to become stronger together, only then we can achieve higher goals and contribute to people’s awareness that the use of vending machines is still safe regardless the pandemic situation. Together we can remain brave for the future.”

Erwin Wetzel, EVA Director is pleased to see Aurora Café join the EVA. “I extend a warm welcome to Mr Helbl and his team to the EVA. Aurora Café is the first Slovenian vending operator to join our Association and I’m proud that the services and connections the EVA offers for national vending operators continues to be attractive to every corner of the continent.  Indeed it also demonstrates that the needs of vending operators are similar from market to market and that there are big benefits in comparing and learning from peers and experts in other regions, determining together best practices and ultimately driving quality and standards even higher. We look forward to a productive partnership with Aurora Café.”

Aurora Café, based in Maribor, joins the EVA as a Supportive Member.
