About Us
Master Brew is a local, independently owned and operated, full-service vending company. We started out in 1965 as Master Brew Coffee Service, primarily serving single-bowl coffee machines. As our company flourished, and began to include vending, water filtration, and servicing convenience stores, we changed our name to Master Brew Beverages.

Operating out of Northbrook, Illinois, since 1978, Master Brew serves thousands of customers throughout Chicagoland, northern Indiana, and southern Wisconsin. Our dedicated team of route drivers, service technicians as well an experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated office staff allows us to provide excellent service to each of our valued customers.



The National Coffee Service Association recognized Master Brew as the best in the coffee/vending industry by awarding us the "Silver Service Award" in 1990-91. In 1997, Automatic Merchandiser Magazine named us "Operator of the Year." Throughout our growth and awards, Master Brew proudly continues running as a family-owned and operated company.



Our philosophy stands strong: "Better is possible, good is not enough!" Our world-class service allows us to develop a partnership with all our clients, assuring comfort and stability. We have grown to provide the latest in technology, equipment, and products, yet maintained our small-time roots which always remind us that it's ultimately about responding quickly and accurately to all of our customers' needs.
