Kinchbus was founded in 1987 by former Leicester City Football Club director Gilbert Kinch trading as GK Kinch and based in Barrow Upon Soar. Before moving into local bus services, Kinch had operated coaches from nearby Mountsorrel since at least 1972. In the early 1990s Kinchbus began to expand with services around Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. In 1998 Kinchbus was sold to the Wellglade Group.
After the collapse of Nottingham based Premiere Travel on 25 January 2013, Kinchbus announced that it would reintroduce its route 9 service between Loughborough and Nottingham to replace Premiere's Red9 service.
Kinchbus operates several routes to local housing estates in Loughborough and some Leicester City Council contracted services in Leicester.
As of January 2019 the fleet has 35 buses.
