Corporate Essentials was featured on this week’s Small Business Spotlight on WCBS Newsradio 880. Host Joe Connolly speaks to Corporate Essentials’ Founder and President Judson Kleinman about what it takes to grow your business in a saturated market. The answer? For Corporate Essentials – innovation and value-added services.

Corporate Essentials has experienced double-digit growth over the past 5 years, making the INC 5000 list 5 times since 2007, and has an employee count that is approaching 100. All of this has been accomplished in the coffee industry – an industry that is dominated by heavy-hitter coffee brands like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts.

Much of this growth can be attributed to Corporate Essentials’ unique “fuel culture, work happy” vision for its customers. The company caters its services and works creatively to suit the needs of businesses large and small as they compete to attract and retain top talent. As Kleinman says in the interview, businesses want “a place where people want to come, where they want to work, where they want to be a part of.” For incoming talent, “it’s not just a job for them – it’s part of their life.”
