​How investing in quality coffee delivers great ROI

Yes, it’s true, by making consistently great coffees, teas and other hot drinks readily available to your staff and clients you will reap big financial dividends. It all boils down to motivation – and every successful business-owner recognises the motivational stimulant of good caffeine…

Motivated staff perform better and motivated clients are more open to being won over – it’s basic human psychology, and it all stacks up.

So how does good vending coffee stimulate your ROI?

  • No more staff time lost chatting around the cosy kitchen kettle, several times a day. And we all know instant isn’t that good.
  • A refreshing response to your client request for coffee – a swift, positive signal that your business is on the money when it comes to customer service.
  • No longer is it simply a question of white or black. It’s now cappuccino, mocha, hot chocolate, caramel macchiato and hazelnut latté.

    Facts and figures: the maths, the evidence

    Annual return on investment, based on a business of 50 – 200 employees:

    Machine cost: c. £1380 per annum

    Ingredients cost (beans, milk, sugar): £4680 pa (based on 50 staff - 750 drinks per week)

    Compare this with how much it would cost from a popular local big brand coffee shop – about £58,500.

    Also, consider the downtime of kitchen kettle operation, i.e. about three people, three times a day @ 10 minutes a session. That’s 1.5 hours a day, 7.5 hours a week.

    A coffee machine takes just two minutes to do the same job. That’s a downtime reduction of 18 minutes/day and 1.5 hours/week.

    By investing £6060 a year, a business of this size will reap £58, 500 worth of coffee-fuelled motivation plus nearly 11.5 days extra work completed.

    That’s a mammoth ROI of 965%

    Further proof that quality vending = quantity ROI

    To leave no shadow of doubt that first class vending pays, here are further facts and figures from a recent survey of 750 consumers by coffee specialists, UCC Coffee UK & Ireland:
