Reducing coffee waste with smart equipment

Waste is a serious problem at colleges today, and operators are taking notice. Here are some tips on dealing with coffee waste on campus.

Operations

Coffee fuels patient, customer satisfaction in healthcare

Offering a robust coffee program has become an increasingly important element in ensuring patient, employee and visitor satisfaction in the healthcare segment.

Noncommercial operations are keeping pace with trendsetting restaurants, especially with breakfast.

To compete with chain cafes, healthcare foodservice operators should strive to offer the latest trends in format and flavor.

Personalizing options at breakfast to ensure greater diner satisfaction can translate to more food and beverage dollars.

With just a few small upgrades, healthcare operators can create an enjoyable experience for patients, visitors and staff.

Hospital food has recently undergone a culinary transition, moving toward customizable options and hotel-style room service for patients, staff and visitors.

Catering to a busy staff that have little time to waste and demanding patients that expect a quality cup of coffee demands an organized and efficient coffee program.

Beverage consumption patterns have changed from tidal waves of carbonated beverages to small, steady streams of specialty beverages coming onto the market. Nowhere is this more apparent than in colleges and universities, where dining halls, cafes and convenience stores combine to offer a full array of cold-beverage options to a captive audience that is open to experimentation and tasting the next big thing.

On menus, “clean” means a lot of different things, from natural and less-processed ingredients to more holistic concepts such as authenticity, transparency and sustainability.
