In most offices, it makes business sense to provide free tea and coffee for your staff and visitors, but many larger employers choose to charge a small sum to cover running these costs. For businesses that have a public waiting room on their premises, a Flavia coffee machine can provide a welcome refreshment to your customers while they wait, and make a tidy sum for your business, especially when its is well displayed on a base cabinet in an accessible location with a pay pod. Have you thought about how your office tea and coffee could work for you?
Keep Them In House
Most of your staff's daily coffee consumption hours probably occur during the work day so you have a captive audience not to mention the work time that will be conserved when your staff don't have to leave the premises for a take away coffee. A Flavia tea and coffee machine will keep your staff and customers in house. Why lose money when people walk out the door to go grab a take away coffee cup?
Save Them Money
There is also the added benefit of saving them money with Flavia hot drinks being massively cheaper than the £2.50 they are likely to pay at your local coffee shop. Flavia coffee machines can offer Lattes, Mochas & Cappuccinos so no one will have to compromise. Check out this article from Metro on how much people are spending a year on takeaway coffee!
Pair the Flavia coffee machine with one of our attractive Flavia base cabinets and a merchandiser to make sure it really looks the part. The Flavia hot drinks machine itself looks stylish with its glossy finish and user-friendly touchscreen adding a touch of the state of the art.
Up To Date Technology
What is essential in making it profitable is the Flavia pay pod. You can choose between coin operated or a cashless system as we carry both Flavia pay pod options. Our cashless pay pods are either VMC and Nayax card readers.
Whichever you choose, the card readers are extremely reliable and intuitively easy to use so you don't have to worry about flustered or confused customers. Having loose change in pockets isn't necessarily the norm anymore so this also helps you capture those customers whose pockets only contain a card.
Most people wouldn’t consider office coffee a great substitute for the hand made drink they may get at a coffee shop. The Flavia coffee machine quickly will dispel any of those thoughts quite quickly with its impressive and delicious varieties of drinks including single origin coffees, black and herbal teas, lattes, mochas and cappuccinos.
Having the widest range of Flavia freshpacks possible will keep people coming back for more. Offer coffee from brands such as Lavazza Coffee and black, herbal & infusion teas from the Bright Tea Company. There is also cult favourite Taylors Yorkshire Tea and Cadbury's Hot Chocolate for those who prefer their coffee break to be a little more indulgent.
Flavia coffee machines offer the two-pack system meaning that you can make cappuccinos and lattes which is something most single serve coffee machines just can’t offer. Just pop in a Real Milk Froth sachet to get barista style drinks at the touch of a button.
Don’t forget that we also carry an excellent range of ancillaries. Milk pots, sugar and stirrers are essential to any well stocked drinks station.
Tea drinkers may also appreciate a bit of honey on offer especially in the winter where it may help them feel better if they are feeling under the weather. Coffee drinkers may enjoy an office drinks station stocked with all the other little extras such as cinnamon, cocoa powder and syrups. These small details will really give your Flavia Coffee machine a cafe feel.
The range of hot drinks from Flavia has more choice than any other single serve coffee machine. Flavia drinks also have excellent sale by dates, so you rarely must worry about sachets that aren’t as quick moving going out of date on you and wasting money.
Location Location Location
Having your coffee and tea located in accessible, high traffic areas will ensure that grabbing their favourite coffee cup will be hard to resist when they are passing. If your Flavia coffee machine is in a dark corner of the office between filing cabinets or behind someone's desk it’s just never going to be as appealing.
If you make sure there is plenty of room, good lighting and even maybe a comfortable seating area then making it everyone's favourite place to congregate is a snap. It is well known that encouraging your staff to socialise encourages creativity and outside of the box thinking which can only improve your business.
Cleanliness Creates Trust
The office drinks station needs to be appealing and keeping it tidy is half the battle. The Flavia coffee machine's stylish base cabinets not only provide ample room for the machine, merchandiser and pay pod but has plenty of space underneath it to coral all of your surplus coffee supplies and cleaning materials.
What's worse than a stinky overflowing rubbish bin. Yuck!
There is space underneath the Flavia coffee machine base cabinet for a bin and an outer chute, so you don't have to keep an unsightly bin outside.
