Coombe Abbey Park, located on the outskirts of Coventry, is set in 500 acres of beautiful gardens (designed by Capability Brown) and woodland with extensive lakeside walks and family picnic areas.
Beverage Genius were approached by the F&B Manager, Ryan, following an initial recommendation: Ryan wanted to feature frozen slush drinks in the main café with a view to adding additional machines if they proved successful
As Beverage Genius have several ownership options we met Ryan on site to get a feel of what would work in order to provide the best solution.
After discussing Ryan’s needs and ‘must-haves’ we decided on the BGFD2 twin-bowl machine. Manufactured by Electrolux Professional, these robust commercial drink machines have a high-capacity, are easy to operate & maintain and also capable of operating in higher ambient temperatures than most of the competitors. Not only that, but Beverage Genius also supply this unit with a class-leading 24 months on-site warranty included!
Ryan took advantage of our Atomic Ice ‘syrup bundle’ offer whereby we supply enough drinks to cover the purchase cost of the machine, our great-tasting Atomic Ice products are UK manufactured to a reduced-sugar recipe using natural flavours and no nasty AZO colours.
We installed and commissioned the new machine, together with full staff training, within a week.
Although there was a mini-heatwave at the time, it’s fair to say that we were all astounded at the popularity of Atomic Ice; within just 10 days a replenishment order was required, meaning that the machine had paid for itself well within the 8 weeks that we had expected!
Two additional machines were installed in the park kiosks shortly afterwards and, again, phenomenal sales meant both had paid for themselves within a couple of weeks, not only outselling all other drinks on offer but with a considerably higher profit margin too.
