Let’s face it…without it, your team members will likely make at least one, if not multiple, trips to Starbucks or another coffee shop throughout the day. They’ll yawn through afternoon meetings and, to make it worse, they might groan about their coffee addiction all the while.
And if you’re more analytical, just do the math: If you have an employee that makes $100,000 a year or $50/hour ($65/hour “fully loaded”), that means a 15-minute Starbucks run will cost you $16 of lost productivity.
“If he or she’s making that coffee run two times a day, that’s $160 of lost productivity per week.”
If he or she’s making that coffee run two times a day, that’s $160 of lost productivity per week. So when it comes to keeping 10 engineers caffeinated, the cost a free machine provided by Family Vending with a minimum purchase of only $200-$400 per month your office ends up saving over $200 a month!
It’s more than just that straight productivity. If it costs just a couple hundred dollars to make your team happier and more present, then that coffee machine is a no-brainer.
It starts about 10:30 am. People begin gazing at the clock, longing for lunch time, the sound of their stomachs grumbling heard faintly in the background of keyboards clicking and phones ringing. It may not seem like much, but that is at least an hour every day that your employees are distracted by hunger, and that is just in the morning. The same thing starts all over again about 3pm. If you are considering adding snacks to your breakroom supplies, here are some benefits that you may not have considered.
- Greater productivity: Not only will a quick trip to the breakroom for some Lance Crackers satisfy the hunger that threatens to reduce workflow, but workplace snacks can be life savers on busy days. Snacking at work can get someone through a project that demands their time through lunch or later into the evening. When energy flags, an energy jolt from coffee and a small snack can keep productivity high until the job is done.
- Increased morale: Employees can sometimes feel that nobody notices their efforts or long hours. You can show your employees that you care about them and their comfort by providing them with snacks. Something as simple as bottled water and popcorn will be greatly appreciated by those hard at work. Incidental benefits such as providing breakroom snacks can make a surprisingly significant impact on employee morale.
- Improved health: Yes, snacking can be good for you! Snacking has suffered from a bad reputation due to the junk food that we often choose to snack on. Providing nutritious snacks like Nature Valley bars helps your workforce stay healthy. Rather than raiding the candy jar, allow your employees to nourish their bodies with what it really needs. Snacking throughout the day, rather than eating three larger meals, is better for our bodies and keeps energy levels constant, avoiding the highs and lows caused by extended periods between meals.
Family Vending is an experienced provider of everything you need for breakroom supplies. No other supplier in South Florida will present you with the customized service required by your business. Coffee, creamer, water, and snacks are greatly appreciated additions to the expected office provisions.

Employers at many cutting edge companies have discovered that today’s best employees are captured by sometimes surprisingly simple benefits. While some can be lured into dedication with 401k options and good health insurance, others are most excited about benefits that affect their day-to-day life, and one major factor in daily happiness is food!
Many modern offices are providing their employees free lunch often through food delivery services. By having healthy and satisfying food delivered to your office, you build a sense of family in the workplace, resulting in surprising outcomes.
Offices that provide free lunch to their employees as a benefit often see a rise in productivity as employees that would normally leave the building for lunch are more likely to spend less time on lunch. The shared experience of lunch as a benefit encourages stronger teams and enhances team-building. This sense of unity encourages employee retention because employees feel they are a part of a family or other closer-knit group identity.
Further, providing lunch to your employees either by food delivery or office catering can also be a tax deduction. Consult with your accountant to see how spending money on delivered food for employees lunches can actually save you money.

In folklore, strawberries are considered to be the fruit of love and are claimed to be able to attract new love and to renew old love. Regardless, there’s no denying that strawberries are a delicious fruit that can be enjoyed fresh from the field or baked into pies and coffee cakes. When pairing your passion fruit in a pastry or pie, consider the fragrant, sweet and smooth flavor of our Breakfast Blend to complement your fruited cuisine.
Take a minute to walk into your business’s break room. Have a good look at your current coffee maker. Is it an old urn from the 1980s with a brown stained interior that, were it cut into, would indicate its age via rings much like those found in tree trunks? How’s the coffee in your break room? Could it pass for potting soil, or is it something that you are truly excited to drink? Imagine serving it to a potential client during a meeting. What does it say about your company, about the standards it holds itself to?
If you read that last paragraph and determined that your current coffee delivery business is leaving you in the lurch, then now is the time that you should think about upgrading to a better coffee delivery business, one that can meet your needs to satisfaction and offer you coffee of a caliber that would instill pride and excitement in the coffee drinkers amongst your employees.
Utilize Family Vending for Coffee Service!
Perhaps your company has been using the same coffee delivery business for your coffee needs for longer than anyone who works there can remember; perhaps that coffee delivery business was the best of the best a decade or two ago. If nobody can remember why you use the coffee delivery business that you currently do, then it is about time for an upgrade!

Steel Horse Coffee is a powerhouse in a single cup of coffee. The engineers at Mars Drinks designed this coffee with cocoa, which contains flavanols. The combination of caffeine and flavanols is designed to provide stamina for your body as well as a focus for your mind.
Steel Horse Coffee has its own unique blend and has very rich notes–it’s like no other coffee we have tried. This single cup serving of coffee is so good that it has become a hit with everyone we have talked to about it. Many of our customers are very pleased that Mars Drinks and Alterra have given ear to the people in South Florida who use these brewing systems and who wanted another very intense single cup of coffee.
When you open the box of Steel Horse Coffee you will see a little card that states, “Made for the Creation 400 Drink Station,” but we assure you this coffee will work in any Flavia Coffee Brewing System. It will work in the Fusion, SB-100, Creation 150, Creation 200, and of course, the Creation 400.
Steel Horse Coffee is the only coffee of its kind. It is so unique that Mars Drinks has patented the single cup filter packet. It is the very first hot power/energy drink on the market anywhere. I have a feeling that this may replace some peoples’ need to buy cold energy drinks. The energy of this unique coffee comes from the cocoa within. Steel horse coffee will benefit you from a healthy perspective, from your head to your toes. Steel Horse Coffee was designed to increase your blood flow as well as increase your point of focus.
If you are the person out there who misses the Intense Roast coffee that Mars Drinks discontinued, then Steel Horse is going to make your day! To place an order online, visit www.shopfamilyvending.com
Everyone looks forward to waking up in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee. Or perhaps take that much needed break away from the desk and sip on a hot cup of Joe before heading back to work. Coffee is a soothing treat after a big meal out with friends. Coffee, whether it’s decaf or regular, is enjoyed all over the world.
Coffee is so prevalent in most countries that it would be difficult not to find a Starbucks on the corner or Folgers Instant in a market wherever you are. While not many people actually make coffee, most tend to know that it comes from another country and contains lots of caffeine. But coffee is a very interesting commodity, with a lot of facts that most consumers are unaware of.
Here are 5 interesting things you probably didn’t know about coffee:
1. Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world. Apart from water, coffee is the most sought after beverage and has been consumed in some form for over 1,000 years.
2. Coffee is grown all over the world. Coffee is grown in over 50 countries, but the one place it’s not grown is on the mainland of the United States. This is due to the climate and growing conditions being unsuitable. Hawaii is the only state in the country that can and does produce coffee.
3. Coffee is one of the most heavily traded commodities in the world. Coffee comes second only to oil as the most traded commodity. The reason coffee is so much cheaper is that it can be regenerated over and over again, whereas oil is a precious resource.
4. Coffee beans are not really beans. Botanically speaking, coffee beans are actually berries. They grow on trees that take about five years to reach maturity.
5. Coffee only affects the body up to a certain point. The coffee fans out there who think having 10 cups a day is what keeps you going is not true. After a certain number of cups have been drunk, typically four depending on the individual, consuming more will provide no further stimulation. Have your four and call it a day.
The office water cooler is a steadfast part of office culture. It’s the place where casual conversation occurs and office friendships are sparked, but for one office in Miami, the office water cooler was the source of a business-halting inferno. The Miami fire department has concluded that the office fire was caused by a faulty heating element in the office water cooler.
That steadfast officemate, the water cooler, is one piece of office equipment that is easy to forget about replacing. It doesn’t start to jam paper like so many other machines in the office, but the technology behind water coolers does improve with time, much as any piece of office equipment does.
Replacing office water coolers may seem like a low priority to many businesses. It’s a priority this Miami office is certain to wish they had observed.

Germophobes may want to leave the room for this one, or perhaps they shouldn’t. Office coffee mugs, it seems, are a terrifying breeding ground for bacteria and other germs according to Professor Charles P. Gerba of the University of Arizona’s Department of Soil, Water, and Environmental Science. Further, how we drink our office coffee and how we wash our office coffee mugs, silverware, and equipment further exacerbates the problem.
Gerba suggests that leaving your office coffee mug on your desk for creates an ideal breeding ground for the microorganisms that likely already live on the mug. His study found that 20% of office coffee mugs carry colonies of fecal bacteria and that a full 90% of office coffee mugs contained other germs. Bacteria, once transferred to a coffee mug, can live there for a full three days and is often deposited on your favorite office coffee mug by the “bacteria-laden sponges or scrub brushes” typically used to wash mugs in office break rooms.
As frightening of a prospect as this is, it is a problem easily solved. Gerba suggests that mugs be washed with “hot water, soap and a paper towel” at the very least but that bringing your mug home to run through a dish washer with its dry cycle is a great idea if your office lacks one. The dishwasher drying cycle reaches temperatures that destroy bacteria.
Disposable Coffee Cup Office Coffee Service
If that seems as if it is unlikely as a practice in your office and you are concerned about the welfare of your fellow office denizens, then finding a coffee service that offers disposable coffee cups as an option is another solution. The Family Vending Company offers disposable coffee cups and accessories that are more environmentally friendly than ever before, often using corn plastics and other biodegradable materials in their products.
Shop around and find the cups that work best for your office. Also, remember to wash your office coffee mug! Blech!
