We live in a fast-moving, ever-changing world. Trends are constantly shifting and resources such as social media help us keep up. We also are living in a world of personalization where it’s important to know your industry and know your people. Continue to grow in tailoring your products, services, and benefits to the individual needs of your customers and employees, or run the risk of losing them.
Trends have shifted quite a bit in the world of vending and micro markets over the last several years. Industry experts have revealed a few impactful trends in 2019 which are revealed in the article “Changing Seasons, Changing Trends.” These trends included:
- Consumer demand for more variety and healthy options
- Popularity of breakfast in the workplace
- Hot to cold coffee
Let’s take a look at how Dependable Break Room Solutions stays on trend in each category.
Variety and Healthy Options
Dependable Break Room Solutions continues to look for ways to grow in innovation and stay on trend. We pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of snacks and beverages including healthy, fresh food options. Even before this study came out, it was an important initiative of ours to provide not only a variety of options, but also a way to tailor your food offerings to the specific needs of your employees. One size rarely fits all, so let’s talk about personalized micro markets and vending machines to best fit your work environment.
And what about breakfast? It’s the most important meal of the day and can get those employees in your door even earlier. Consider pantry service or even catering for special occasions. Maybe a “thank you” breakfast for a job well done at quarter end, or a celebration of each birthday and work anniversary your people had that month, or simply a special holiday treat.
And last but not least, we can’t forget about the trend of coffee. Rather have iced coffee on those warm Southern California days? Choose from an assortment of coffee flavors and brands and pour over ice. Or, go with one of our coffee machines that specifically makes iced coffee. Pro tip: freeze coffee in ice cube trays and use those frozen cubes as ice in your coffee to prevent diluting it.
We will continue to work to stay on trend and offer the very best. Contact us at [email protected] for more information and improve your break room today.
