My staff keep pestering me to buy a coffee machine for the office but I’m afraid it would be just an unnecessary expense.
Here’s a fairly well-kept secret: a coffee machine on your business premises is actually an economical way of boosting staff productivity, providing them with a tasty pick-me-up that is available just down the hall rather than down the street. Whether you buy, lease or rent your coffee machine the cost falls into two categories: upfront costs including the purchase and installation of your coffee machine, and recurring or operating costs including servicing, restocking and contract fees. Don’t hesitate to ask for price quotes from coffee machine suppliers. You can compare their offers side by side and determine exactly what you’re willing to pay for before selecting the supplier that best satisfies your needs.
