Taking a Much Needed Break

Pressure builds up at the workplace at times and one doesn't have time to notice what is going on around oneself. Nor does one have time to take full-fledged meals. It is common enough for people who work under high pressure and for long hours to skip meals or make do with snacks. However, making do with snacks does not have to mean threatening one's health with confectionery items and cookies. More and more employers are realizing the importance of stocking the office vending machine with healthy snack options. These could be things like cereal bars, soy crunchies, oat flakes spiced to taste like potato crisps, or even mixtures of crisps which have a significant proportion of cornflakes, nuts, oats and soy nuggets.

So if you are looking around for the right office vending machine , then also check what are the options you have about the kinds of snacks you can stock up on. Further, check to see what are the kinds of drinks that can be stocked. Are you just stocking on hot drinks or can you also vend fruit juices and fruit smoothies? This applies equally to any coffee vending machines that you may be planning to install. You need to be clear in your mind whether you are offering snacks and beverages to your staff as an add-on or are they expected to pay for them? This would dictate the variety of products that you would want to stock and the kind of beverage or drink options that you would want to offer.

If the users are expected to be paying for their own snacks, drinks and/or beverages make sure that the office vending machine and/or coffee vending machine has payment options like tokens or coins etc. Check out whether these coffee vending machines are vending only coffee or other kinds of hot drinks like health beverages or soups or even tea.
