Our clients typically save between 25%-50% on their beverage spend. Depending on your hospital system size, that usually translates to anywhere between $100,000 to $7,500,000 per year in true, net, bottom-line savings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doesn't my cafeteria operator already have a great deal?
Not likely. While cafeteria operators often have beverage deals in place, they don't typically benefit the host hospital -- and they certainly weren't designed with the hospital's interest in mind. Other host properties (universities, stadiums, etc.) don't allow third parties to control their beverage deal. Why should you?
Won't my employees revolt?
No. Retail beverage volumes always increase in the first year of a beverage deal. Your employees and guests will benefit from better merchandizing, engaging promotions and give-aways, and new product categories.
Isn't it wrong to remove choice?
Beverage deals actually expand choice. Both Coke & Pepsi have expansive product portfolios -- including teas, juices, waters, coffees, etc. Partnering with one brand prevents duplicative products from crowding the shelves and creates more space for the new and innovative products your guests and employees want.
Aren't beverage deals promoting unhealthy food?
Not if they are structured in the right way. The top selling beverage product on hospital campuses today is bottled water. You can structure your beverage deal to promote healthy beverages and fund wellness initiatives.
Can't I do this on my own?
You can, but it's not a good idea. Beverage negotiations are unlike any other negotiation, and the industry is changing more rapidly now than it has in the last 50 years. Shifting consumer tastes, increased product selection and new equipment technology are all critically important factors to consider in your next deal. While your team excels at negotiating deals that are core to your business, you should get expert help when it comes to your beverage deal. If the biggest restaurant chains in the world seek the guidance of consultants, should you be doing it on your own? Don't leave money on the table.

We Don't Want Your Money

We want to dramatically increase how much money you make - or save - with respect to beverages. And then we want to take a small percentage of that new money that we earned for you. That’s our pay-for-performance model. It ensures that our incentives are aligned. It's why our clients think of us as a true strategic business partner and not just a vendor.
