Regardless of the size of your car showroom business, it is very likely that there will be a significant portion of coffee lovers in your midst. Choosing which hot drinks dispenser is right, however, for not only the preferences of your team, but for your company is of utmost importance.
Whether this is about trying to reduce outgoing costs, the amount of people your machine is required to serve or ease of maintenance, each business will have different requirements.
With over 50 years experience supplying coffee machines for your car showroom, at Nexus we have extensive knowledge of the key factors that are important when choosing a hot drinks dispenser.
When it comes to hot drinks dispensers for car showrooms, the two most common types of machines are bean to cup and single serve. When it comes to deciding which is best for your workplace there are three important factors that should be considered– machine maintenance, hot drink selection, and whether you will charge.
Maintaining your car showroom coffee machine
With bean to cup machines grinding the coffee internally, this means that they require taking apart after a certain amount of use for cleaning. Whilst the frequency of cleaning will naturally vary from model-to-model, in workplaces with larger teams, this can mean fairly frequent maintenance.
This issue can, however, be navigated to some degree if your business is happy to train staff properly on how and when to clean the car showroom coffee machine. As a result of their pod brewing method, choosing a single serve machine can be another, more convenient, way to solve this issue.
The hot drink selection that suits your car showroom
The second key element to keep in mind when choosing between these two options is hot drink selection.
Although coffee is often the preferred choice of hot drink in most businesses, it is important to ensure that everyone’s preferences are thought of. At Nexus Drinks, our single serve Flavia and Klix models serve some of the UK’s favourite hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
These machines are great for car showrooms people have a wide selection of favourites.
Charging for drinks
When it comes to selecting a hot drinks dispenser for your car showroom, it is also crucial to consider the expense of hot drinks. In smaller teams, providing free hot drinks can be simple and cheap way to boost morale, but in larger teams this can become pricey very quickly. Our machines, such as the Flavia, can be fitted to charge for drinks if this is something that you think would be better suited for you business.
Can using coffee machines in car showrooms be environmentally friendly?
At Nexus, we are aware of the environmental issues that are associated with packaging. This is why we work closely with organisations such as Terracycle for packaging that is hard to recycle and also make sure that we supply sustainably packaged options in every area that we can.
