Where to Shop
JM Operations was established in 1986 by Joseph Micallef as JM Distributors; a sole trader organisation, with the scope of purchasing soft drinks, beers and mineral water from local manufacturers and providing door to door distribution of the same products to consumers all over the Island. At the time Joseph was the only person working in the business, owning one delivery truck and a small yard where he used to keep stocks. Today, the door to door distribution segment
consists of a team of individuals to meet consumers demand.
Besides door to door distribution, JM Operations established itself as a professional vending machines operator and maintains an extensive distribution network on the island under the JM Vending brand (JMV). JM Vending Services operates and services over 300 vending machines in the cold drinks, hot drinks, snacks, and ice-cream sectors which include machines of its property and rented machines from other parties.
To maintain quality standards, working order and cleanliness,
JMV provides regular vending machine replenishment, periodical maintenance and servicing as well
as 24/7 technical support.
Later in (insert year) the company introduced its bottle shop Discount Depot Cash & Carry which is now the hub of its business operations linking all segments of ‘JM Operations’.
Located in Zejtun, the bottle shop offers customers an extensive range of beverages at wholesale prices. It also boasts a disposable, toiletry, dry, refrigerated foods and frozen foods section as well as a variety of dry products for catering use. In addition, customers may also purchase ice and gas products.
A few years after JM Vending Services ventured into a canteen operator environment, it was realised that the two complement each other.
This led to the birth of JM Operations’ sister company. In 2015, JM Manufacturing was launched. JM Manufacturing initially started off as JM Catering, providing professional catering services for schools, colleges, language schools and factory canteens, while setting and continuously improving market standards. Later, the company grew to include Pizza Petrus and most recently Papajoe’s.
Pizza Petrus manufactures and distributes frozen food products all over the Maltese Islands.
Initially the brand launched to market with its signature cheesy crust pizza and classic crust pizza range but has since grown to include a variety of pies and most recently, a microwaveable mini pizza range.
Petrus products have been very successful locally garnering praise for their authentic taste and use of genuine ingredients.
In April 2021, the company launched Papajoe’s, a food take away and delivery service. Papajoe’s menu boasts a unique selection of bites, ribs, homemade burgers, pizza and more. The newly established food joint is committed to creating great quality food prepared using only the best
products on the market and elevating them through creative ingredient combinations by our talented Chefs.
