Coffee, tea and refreshments
Coffee and the employee workplace experience
Coffee stations provide a natural hub for collaboration. We understand this, and work with our clients to figure out the best location and presentation of their coffee, tea and refreshment stations. We build them to fit, and personalise them so they belong to the organisation.
The workplace of today needs to be equipped with high quality services and amenities, and it’s not just because about better tasting coffee (although that’s important too!). It’s about making your people feel more engaged, valued - and happier. In fact 79% of employees agree that the quality of the tea, coffee, and refreshment facilities are a critical factor in their happiness (more here).
We use these insights to continuously improve our design, equipment and, yes, our coffee!
Snacking that’s better
As a nation we’re snacking more frequently - not surprising as the working day extends, and conventional meal times get skipped. In fact we’re in the middle of a ‘snacking revolution’ which has seen average adult consumption of snacks increased from 29g in 1979 to 89g in 2015 (source: Defra UK).
For us snacking is about providing fuel and sustenance 24/7. We continually review our range in response to trends. The ideal snacking offer is designed with the needs of its audience in mind - and that differs depending on location, user profile and routine, and time of year. So we work with our customers to devise the optimum mix.
We service, clean, merchandise and monitor our full footprint of machines up and down the UK and Ireland. This allows us to make sure they’re performing as they should. It also allows us to be vigilant on shelf life, and to report on usage patterns to our customers, weekly, daily and hourly. We use vending tech to amplify the user experience - like video screens to inform on nutri count or suggest combinations, and telemetry to report on stock levels.
As good starting point, we believe in a mix of snacks from the Good for You, to the Better for You to the Fun for You. After all, what’s a week without a little joy?
you can count on us
It’s part of our promise.
And by this we mean that we maintain and manage all of our customer sites. To do this we have a team of 60 operators and technicians, operating from our six bases across UK and Ireland. Our brilliant road crew is supported by our 12 strong Operations team, working in our operational HQs in Basingstoke, Dunboyne and Warrington.
By maintaining our own equipment we make sure it continues to perform as it should. We fix service issues, check stock and performance, calibrate machines, clean, vaccum and sanitise.
Essentially we concern ourselves with the details, the small things that contribute to the bigger picture of a better workplace experience for employees. And you can count on us for that.
