5 healthy beverages for your Los Angeles office

We’re all looking to improve our health and what we put in our bodies. In fact, more Los Angeles companies are requesting healthy options in the workplace. In addition to healthy food options, they are also requesting healthy beverage choices. Therefore, we’re dedicating this blog post to sharing our top 5 healthy beverages to keep you fueled throughout the workday.

Water

It may seem old-fashioned to some but drinking water is important to your overall health. Water carries nutrients and oxygen to your cells, flushes bacteria from your bladder, aids digestion, normalizes blood pressure, and much more. According to experts, most people should drink about four to six cups of water each day. However, water intake is different for each person. Therefore, you should check with your doctor to make sure you are drinking enough water. Premier VendGroup offers Los Angeles businesses custom water filtration services to provide your office with pure, clean drinking water through our plumbed-in, floor, and countertop units.

Green Tea

While there are a number of healthy teas, we’re going to focus on green tea. It has many health benefits. It boosts brain function, aids in fat loss, and lowers the risk of heart disease. Plus, it’s an ideal soothing drink when you’re having a rough day and need some downtime to relax. We offer green (and other teas) through our Los Angeles office coffee and tea service.

Coffee

Drinking coffee in moderation can be healthy. Visit almost anywhere in the world, and coffee and tea are two of the most served beverages. Drinking coffee can lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and certain neurological diseases, protect again depression, and more. Moreover, who doesn’t love the smell of a fresh cup of coffee in the morning?  Premier VendGroup offers a Los Angeles office coffee service whether you’re looking for traditional ground, single-cup, or bean to cup brewers. Our team will work with you to customize our coffee service to meet your needs.

Blended Juice

For those who find it difficult to eat enough vegetables or fruits throughout the day, consider drinking blended juice for additional nutrients. Blended juice incorporates the whole fruit and vegetable including the skin and fiber. The texture is thicker, almost like a smoothie, and you’re getting the full benefits of that fruit or vegetable. Check out our Los Angeles office pantry and micro-market services for juice options we can bring to your office.

Milk

As old-fashioned as it seems, milk is filled with essential nutrients that benefit health including calcium, protein, potassium, and more.  Drinking milk helps build strong bones, repairs muscle, and maintains the immune system. So go ahead, visit your Los Angeles micro-market and grab a cold bottle of milk to add to your cereal or enjoy it as is.

Supporting your goals

To sum up, more businesses are focusing on employee health. They understand that healthier employees are happier, more productive, and take fewer sick days. Premier VendGroup is committed to supporting Los Angeles businesses by providing healthy beverages in the break room.

Optimizing our Los Angeles micro-markets

At Premier VendGroup, we’re always exploring new ideas to enhance our refreshments services. That’s why we recently welcomed Colin to the team. His job is to use data to improve our micro-market products and sales in Los Angeles and Southern California.  Ideally, these improvements will offer our customers a better experience. And, we’ll have less waste and fewer expired products at each micro-market. By using data, we will improve the customers’ experience at our micro-markets.

What are micro-markets?

Micro-markets are unmanned retail spaces where customers can buy a variety of foods, drinks, and snacks. Our team installs the micro-market at the client’s workplace in the break room.  We also install cameras for security purposes. Customers purchase products at a self-checkout kiosk using credit cards, mobile wallets, or cash. Micro-markets are open 24/7. This makes them convenient for customers no matter how early or late they work. The business benefits because employees can eat meals and snacks on-site. And, this can lead to increased productivity. Employees can save money because they don’t have to leave work to buy refreshments. Micro-markets are a big and important part of our business. Therefore, we must improve them for our customers.

3 ideas to optimize Los Angeles micro-markets

Micro-Markets | Los Angeles Micro-Markets | Refreshment Solutions

It’s important that we test and try different ideas to enhance our micro-markets.  Here are three we can implement now.

  • Review products that are not selling and replace them with a different product in the same category. For instance, if regular milk is not selling, we may replace it with another nut-based milk.
  • Colin will build relationships with the Premier VendGroup route drivers to get their feedback. After all, they interact with customers every week. They know which products customers are excited about and buy. The route drivers get this feedback while stocking the micro-market.
  • Colin will keep his ‘finger on the pulse’ and test products that the general public is excited about.

Data-driven decisions for Los Angeles micro-markets

In addition, we will also look at demographics to further optimize our product mix. For example, we looked at some data and found a few interesting insights. We noticed that businesses with Millenials and Generation Z employees want energy drinks in their micro-markets. However, businesses with Generation X employees want tea, enhanced water, or naked juices. For this second group, we may offer tea through our Los Angeles office coffee services.  In the future, we will look at more of this type of data to customize each micro-market to that particular group of customers.

To keep the micro-markets exciting for our customers, we’re also looking to introduce new products. In fact, we often add new items to our Los Angeles vending and other services. Our inspirations come from many places. We look at products that are “trendy” or popular at the moment. We will also look at local and healthy products to add to the mix since we serve Los Angeles and Southern California.

Benefits of a tailored approach

A tailored approach to each of our micro-markets has many benefits.

  • We provide a better experience for customers because we’ll offer the products they want.
  • We decrease the number of expired products in the market. No one likes to see expired food when they are shopping.
  • Ideally, we will increase sales and revenue for our company.

Enhance the customer experience

To sum up, our goal is to provide customers with the best mix of foods, snacks, and drinks in the micro-market.  We know that we can increase the levels of engagement in the micro-markets if we optimize our product mix. At end of the day, it’s all about providing the best customer experience.

If you’re looking for lighter fare, why not try a yogurt and granola breakfast? It’s high in protein, calcium, vitamins, and probiotics, and great for gut microbiota.  Through our office pantry service, you can enjoy the health benefits that come with a yogurt and granola breakfast. However, if don’t want granola, then try our cereals with fresh milk. Your employees can enjoy convenient grab-and-go options like cereal, parfait, oatmeal, and granola through our Los Angeles office pantry service. Most importantly, it’s a great way to show busy employees that they are valued and appreciated in the office.

Fruit is a great option

For those looking for lighter fare in the morning, fruit is a refreshing way to start your day.  Eating fruits has many benefits. They are a source of essential vitamins and minerals and are high in fiber. Fruits provide many health benefits and can reduce a person’s risk of developing heart disease, inflammation, and diabetes. Get your fill of fruits at the office through our Los Angeles food vending machines.

Breakfast has its benefits

Breakfast is such an essential part of the day. And, if you’re still not convinced, these reasons may help change your mind.

  • Give your body plenty of essential nutrients.
  • Boost brainpower and improve concentration.
  • Prevent weight gain and avoid higher-calorie foods later in the day.
  • Eggs are packed with protein, vitamins, and antioxidants which help you maintain healthy skin.
  • Increase your energy and avoid a mid-morning slump.

Is it even a complete breakfast without a hot beverage?

We customize our service to meet the needs of your Los Angeles office whether you’re looking for traditional,  single-cup, or bean-to-cup coffee brewers.
