There’s nothing quite as enticing as walking into a lobby on the way to work in the morning and being greeted by the delicious aroma of freshly brewed coffee and hot croissants, straight from the oven. No matter what kind of work you do, there’s something utterly scrumptious about having a favorite drink and snack to enjoy as you make your way into work. This is obviously why so many corporate lobbies and outdoor lunch areas have easy access to food kiosks or cafes like Starbucks. Just knowing that it will be easy to run and get a delicious bite to eat before (or during) work raises spirits and makes everyone smile, even if there’s a tough day of work ahead.
Easy Ways to Provide Refreshment
Though some people like to “brown bag it” for their daily lunch or afternoon snack, many people like to take a break and buy a freshly made lunch that’s different than what they’d get at home. Many kiosks offer a range of different types of food, from sandwiches to pastries and soups, which provides customers a great way to enjoy some extra variety during their day.
Major cafe chains like Starbucks and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf now offer a wide range of food items, with choices of salads, healthy wraps and hot sandwiches all on offer. These cafes tend to switch up their food offerings frequently, in response to feedback from customers. Starbucks now offers many organic and vegan items on its food menu, which provides customers with many options, and an alternative to the ever popular cookies and pastries on their menu.
There’s no doubt that the way to put people in a truly productive and positive mood is to tantalize them with something delicious. In this way, corporate America is truly on to something as kiosks and cafes continue to proliferate near offices nationwide.
