History of Davians

Davians is a second-generation family-owned business founded in 1958 by David and Vivian Kwarciany (the basis of the “Davians” name).

Headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Davians evolved from a small vending business into a leading provider of food and beverage services with a reputation for excellence in delivering the highest standards of quality and service to our customers.

In addition to the vending service business, Davians diversified into allied fields, including operating company cafeterias; providing catering services for special events; a coffee service division; a nutritional program for the elderly of Milwaukee County; and Micro Markets that utilize automated self-checkout technology.

The business started in the founders home, moved into larger buildings in 1969 and 1973, then built a new 45,000 square-foot corporate building in 1990 that included a banquet & conference center for special events.

David and Vivian have been proud to have four of their six children grow up with the business and advance into integral roles in its day-to-day operation.

The Kwarciany family feels strongly that a major reason the firm has experienced its growth and acceptance in the local business community has been the efforts and dedication of all their employees.

Davians continues to investigate new trends, tastes, techniques, and technology to improve the customer’s experience, while providing quality food, beverage and impeccable service.
