New Coffee Product Launch at NCRLE
Stockton Graham & Co. will be launching a new coffee product specifically designed for restaurants, bars and foodservice operators at the NCRLE! Customers’ interest in premium coffee is at an all-time high. In fact, one out of every two cups sold in the U.S. is premium coffee. To capture this lucrative market, on-trend foodservice operators are moving toward craft roasted coffee that provides customers with coffee house quality flavor and an exceptional coffee experience. Our new product will make serving high-quality craft roasted coffee easy in a restaurant, hotel, bar or foodservice environment. Visit our booth to learn more!
Restaurant Coffee Sucks—And Why Yours Shouldn’t
We are also honored to be the only coffee roaster on the roster for the NCRLE Educational Program at the Expo. On September 22 at 3:30pm, our Thom Swain and Brady Butler will be serving up expert advice on how restaurants can improve profitability and customer satisfaction with craft-roasted coffee. Don’t miss their session in Room 303 at 3:30pm titled Why Restaurant Coffee Sucks – And Why Yours Shouldn’t.
Coffee is the fastest growing option on a restaurant’s beverage menu, growing from 10% of all restaurant beverage sales to nearly 15% today and representing $24B in sales. Year-over-year growth is running upwards of 7%. Even so, according to Grub Street, up to 30% of Michelin-starred restaurants use low-quality pod coffee. That’s a shame: In most cases, coffee is the last thing patrons taste during their dining experience—leaving, literally, a poor taste in diners’ mouths. Improving the quality of coffee served in your restaurant or hotel can improve customer satisfaction, increase overall beverage sales and drive repeat business.
