After what seems like only 5 minutes since last year’s event, Black Friday has returned with a bang. Express Refreshments has welcomed this shopping phenomenon with open arms, but probably not in the way you’d expect. Black Friday doesn’t have to be all about sales and discounts. Just like last year, we are working closely with our Micro Market customers to support each of their chosen charities through product sales. Together, we will help make a difference to some fantastic organisations.
Remember when we announced before Christmas that ‘My Coinadrink’ was in development? We’re now excited to say that some aspects of the portal are now on trial, and customers have the option as to whether they want to take part in its progress and contribute to its growing evolution.
This years’ MacMillan Coffee Morning has come and gone but what a morning it was. In fact, it was so good that we extended it over both the Thursday and Friday! Colleagues at Coinadrink excelled themselves with a terrific display of delicious goodies: I only wish I was there to see it myself! Without wishing to blow our own trumpet, Coinadrink and charity work go hand in hand and we managed to raise a total of £80! It’s clear our staff pulled through once again for such a fantastic organisation.
It’s not every day you’re selected as a finalist in an awards entry, is it? You may have noticed on our social media platforms that we entered the Black Country Chamber Awards a few months back for the Customer Commitment Award and now we’re thrilled to say that our efforts have so far paid off!
Hi, I’m Alistair, and I’ve been having a little think recently. I’ve been keeping you up to date with everything that’s going on in our industry since January 2017 but I’m now keen to take it further. You may think vending isn’t anything special, but I’ve developed a few new ideas for our blog that I’m very hopeful will change your perception. Bear with me here…
When you think about it, hot drinks connect us all. How many of you cannot function without one in the morning? It’s believed that 70 million cups of coffee and 165 million cups of tea are consumed in the UK every day. So it’s clear most of you can’t!
