BUNN is not only a recognized manufacturer; Bunn is also a family name. Over 170 years ago, Jacob Bunn opened his grocery store in a developing Springfield, IL, USA, and a young Abe Lincoln was one of the first customers. That venture grew into Bunn Capitol Wholesale Grocery Company and was later managed by George R. Bunn who founded a beverage equipment division in the late 1950's and officially incorporated Bunn-O-Matic in the early 1960’s.
Today, the company remains privately-held and family-owned through five generations. Arthur “Hy” Bunn has been the President and CEO since 1988, assuming overall management and leadership of the worldwide beverage equipment company that his father founded.
In the mid-1970’s the first BUNN home coffee maker was launched, spring boarding from the expertise that was propelling the growth of the commercial equipment division at that time.
Today, the home collection continues to evolve with the changing needs of the customer without sacrificing the exclusive and unique brewing process that results in the smooth, rich taste that has become the trademark of a BUNN home coffee maker.
From the Bunn family to your family, we are honored to share a cup with you.
