“Our people and our customers will always be the most valuable assets to our company.”
In 1994 Tom & Rhonda Hawkins started Accent Food Services in Austin, Texas.
A Vending Company that initially operated out of a garage, Accent quickly grew to service the Austin and Round Rock areas. As Austin grew, Accent was poised to grow with it. As early as 2002, Accent started to expand beyond its core market entering East Texas markets, Bryan/College Station and Nacogdoches. Soon after, Accent was off to San Antonio. Finally, Accent completed the plan by acquiring operations in Dallas (2010) and Houston (2012).
Today Accent is recognized by many in the Industry as an innovative leader by driving a culture focused on being the best place to work and by developing consumer solutions with a strong commitment to innovation through technology. Accent is very proud to be on the cutting edge of technology as it relates to our sales, operations, and consumer experience. As an organization, Accent was the first and remains the only in Texas, to fully deploy remote monitoring technology (RME). This technology enables our operations team to get real time data from 100% of our machines. We use this data to drive our Just In Time distribution, ensure on time full product fulfillment, and manage technical service opportunities before most customers know it ever occurred. The part we are most proud of is our commitment to sustainability. The investments in cutting edge technology allow us to reduce our use of fleet by more than 40% vs. our nearest competitor; and reduce our waste by 50%!
On the back of our strong vending business, Accent was first to market in 2011 with unattended retail solutions (micro-markets). Five years later, we are proud to have over 300+ retail stores. These stores replace traditional vending and/or food service with a 24/7 convenient solution. Over 300 unique products, fresh food, convenience, electronics, and traditional snack/beverages deliver a one stop shop for the workplace. This line of business is seen by many as the future of retail convenience solutions and Accent is proud to be among the leaders.
Our coffee and break room pantry solution is the third leg of our total refreshment solutions.
At Accent we are well positioned to service coffee, filtered water and ice, and break room provisions. In what is one of the fastest areas of growth, Accent offers concierge solutions. From delivery of fresh cut fruit, to traditional snacks, beverages and coffee solutions. Whether it is our proprietary blends of coffee, a catered meal, or filtered water and ice, Accent has a solution to serve all our customers.
At Accent Food Services, Client/Consumer engagement is priority number one. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by making it our mission to recruit a diverse and inclusive workforce with a strong focus on our workplace culture. We develop a team that understands our clients/consumers. We also look to connect with our client/consumers by continually adopting the latest communication tool, whether it’s through a call to our friendly customer care team or through the use of the latest technology. At Accent, simple and efficient transactions for our clients/consumers are a must! Accent will continue to innovate with latest in cashless payment, mobile payment applications, rewards/loyalty, and bio-metrics.

We would like to thank our customers for their faith in Accent to meet their workplace refreshment needs. If you aren’t a customer of Accent, what’s taking you so long? Come aboard!
What people are saying.
The addition of the Accent Foods Self Service Market has proven to be a major benefit to our Operations Center.
The employees enjoy the convenience and variety. From an aesthetic standpoint the units really give our breakroom its own uniquely high end feel and appearance. The addition of the market has also contributed to improved employee compliance to schedule adherence as employees are able to obtain and eat a meal onsite without leaving the facility to deal with traffic, lines at local restaurants, etc. As we continue to grow as a company I fully plan to continue to leverage Accent Foods for market services at all locations and would highly recommend Accent Foods to any company looking to provide quality food options for their employees
We have been a customer of Accent Foods since 2006.
We have over 800 employees using the vending machines and drinking Flavia coffee every day. The reasons we have stayed with Accent Foods for so many years is the quality of service, rapid response for any issues, the quality of the product, ability to provide me suppliers at other sites throughout the USA and reasonable prices. I do an annual review of other vendors to ensure I am getting the best supplier for the company. The answer every year is stay with Accent Foods.
Accent is on-time with deliveries and works within the budget.
Our snacks and coffee are a critical component to employee benefits and contribute to employee happiness. As with most companies, our employees often go from meeting to meeting and having a quick bite between meetings contributes to more focused discussions.
Two years into our relationship, Accent Food Services has over delivered on their commitment.
So much, we are working to see how we can bring Accent to our offices across North America. From day one I have felt like part of the solution. From custom menu’s made fresh in their kitchen, nutritional analysis, and superior service, Accent has been a best in class partner. The level of engagement from their local operations to their CEO has made this a very strong relationship.
