SITUATION – FRUSTRATION!

The catering crew at Ralph Allen School in Bath were serving up hot drinks, over the counter using an old machine that was constantly breaking down. It was “out of order” so often, that they had to resorted to making drinks by hand. They were so frustrated seeing the queues for hot drinks grow, and knowing they were letting the students down, and not realising the revenue that was readily available to them.

RESASSURANCE REQUIRED

Investing in a new beverage machine could be expensive and would need to deliver school-compliant drinks – but would they live up to the student’s expectations? What if the drinks weren’t popular enough to sell the volume needed to make the investment worthwhile, or cover any rental costs? Additionally, there was a real concern that they could under-specify a machine and be left with one that wouldn’t meet the demands of busy break times and dinner hours. When budgets are tight, the last thing the catering team needed was to commit to a machine that fell short on compliance, capacity, or quality expectations.

THE CANTEEN TEAM HAVE SEEN A SIGNIFICANT BOOST

“The Lavazza Skinny Options machine has become essential to the sites we’ve introduced it to. It provides students with premium brand, healthy drinks that compare favourably to those they experience on the High Street. Since the test the canteen team have seen a significant boost – not only in hot beverage sales – but also a general uplift in the football to the canteen overall.”
Catering Manager, Ralph Allen School

THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING… IS IN THE EATING!

The catering team had identified the Skinny Options machine as being a low cost option, and they had faith that the Lavazza coffee brand might just resonate with the students – after all, it’s Italy’s most popular coffee brand AND the Hot Chocolate was low calorie and school compliant! To prove that they had indeed found the machine that would deliver school compliant drinks, during busy breaks and lunchtimes that the students loved, Options offered a FREE taste test day. The proof of the machine and its hot beverages would be in the drinking!

EXAM DAY

The Lavazza Skinny Options machine was put in place ahead of the morning break, set to FREE vend low calorie hot chocolate and toffee hot chocolate alongside skinny latte, mocha and cappuccino Lavazza coffees. As expected, mention of “FREE DRINKS” caused quite a stir! Students and members of the teaching and support staff descended on the canteen and put the machine through its paces.

HIGHLY COMMENDED

At the end of a very busy day, the catering team were beaming. They loved the fact that the machine was compact and didn’t take up much space, but small proved to be mighty as it quickly dispensed perfect drinks, time-after-time, at the touch of a button. They were so impressed, that they decided to keep the machine on site. It was configured to accept a bespoke, prepaid card payment system and went straight into action, leaving the catering staff to focus on food provision and leave the machine to serve up the hot drinks.
