The Golden Coffee Opportunity

Coffee and hot drinks, as part of a retail offering, in any modern facility is still in huge growth. Starbucks, Costa and numerus smaller, local companies have branched out from the traditional coffee house offering. Many are choosing “Grab & Go” retail offerings to satisfy the consumer’s ever growing demand for 65 million cups of coffee sold each day!  

More than ever the consumer is looking for an attractive, clean, sleek solution offering a high quality drink – as a nation we are ‘mad for it’! And the market is growing all the time. If your business isn’t supplying the public this service and reaping the rewards then rest assured someone else will be! 

Whether it’s a silky flat white (the nation’s fastest growing café style coffee drink) self-served from a luxury food-on-the-go retail point, or an indulgent mocha served in crisp white porcelain across a trendy bar counter, consumer tastes are diversifying rapidly.

The innovative payment technology on the market now ensures the availability of hot drinks 24/7.  Many coffee machines are completely autonomous and don’t require human intervention at the point of sale.  The advent of attractive touch screen technology provides options to digitally advertise company’s message or gain further revenue through advertising. 

The modern coffee solution placed in a retail environment needs to have a high element of design to wow the consumer and attract their attention. The aroma of coffee alone won’t produce the sales. It will help though. Choose your supplier carefully, there are numerous deals available from a huge number of suppliers in the market. Don’t be blinded by the brand name, choose a partner that will help you to achieve the results that you want for your business. There are a number of basic elements that will need to be considered before a final decision is made.
