How much does it cost to keep a coffee machine in a small office?
The cost of your coffee machine will depend on whether you buy, lease or rent. Whatever you choose, the cost falls into two categories: upfront costs including purchase and installation of your coffee machine, and recurring costs such as servicing, restocking and contract fees. You can set up your coffee machine to take coins or provide your employees with rechargeable payment cards to pay for coffee from your vending machine. The coin method is probably the simplest way to go but you will have to take care of emptying the money from your coffee machine on a regular basis and also set up rules for how to reimburse employees who may lose money in the machine. If you opt instead for a coffee machine using payment cards you can set the price point at whatever amount you choose, so you can determine in advance how much your employees contribute to the cost of your coffee machine. A coffee machine in the office is actually an inexpensive way to boost staff productivity, providing a pick-me-up without the need to leave the office. Check the Web for coffee machine suppliers, compare quotes and you’ll see that it’s cheaper than you thought.
