Say it with signature serveware
The days of the ubiquitous white diner mug may be numbered. Today, it’s all about presentation, and trendsetting breakfast operations all across the country are differentiating with appealing beverage serveware–iced coffee glasses, artisan ceramic and glass mugs and designer takeout cups. It’s a great way to premiumize your beverage offerings without even changing a thing about the beverages themselves–and it sends a message to your customers that you care about quality.
Put it on ice
If you’re brewing hot coffee and not offering an iced option, you’re missing a major all-day profit opportunity. All Coffee-mate liquid creamers blend quickly and completely with both hot and cold beverages, making them an easy way to add signature flavor and richness to iced coffee offerings. Even if you can’t brew coffee, you can still serve iced coffee with Coffee-mate’s innovative Iced Coffee Liquid Concentrate–just add two pumps of the concentrate to ice and water for a delicious French Vanilla and Cafe Mocha single-serve solution.
While traditional favorite flavors like Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel and Mocha remain strong on beverage menus, other flavors, such as Pumpkin, Spice and Hazelnut are increasing in popularity.* With 8 on-trend specialty flavors–plus seasonal LTO flavors like Pumpkin-Spice and Peppermint-Mocha–Coffee-mate makes it easy to let your guests customize their cup.
Don't forget the finishing touch
A simple garnish that gives a cue to the flavor of a drink lets your customers indulge even before they take their first sip. Try adding a fresh mint sprig to an Irish Cream flavored coffee, a cinnamon stick to a Pumpkin-spice coffee, or crushed peppermint candy to a peppermint mocha. Take a page from those trendy baristas and add a dusting of cocoa or cinnamon, or a drizzle of caramel or chocolate syrup over a dollop of whipped cream to top any hot or cold coffee drink.
