Employers throughout the NYC/NJ metro area are bringing employees back to the office more and more . . . and they are tasked with finding office perks that their teams desire.  An elevated break room experience is one office perk that’s making a difference. And when you make Corporate Essentials part of the plan to elevate your break room, everyone at your location benefits—from the business owner to the office manager or human resource director to your employees. 


The Importance of A Rewarding Break Room Experience

When a company offers a nice break room, employees notice—and use it. A well-appointed break room space is where teams gather to relax and refresh—both physically and mentally. It’s where they leave workday stress behind for a while as they socialize and refuel, or hold an impromptu team meeting over coffee. In short, a rewarding break room experience reflects your company’s positive corporate culture and fuels greater productivity and employee satisfaction.


At Corporate Essentials, we’re helping New York metro companies create compelling incentives for their teams to return to the office. A great break room makes them want to be there and shows you care.


The Benefits of Offering Snacks in the Break Room

Key benefits of a break room stocked with great snacks are “yum” and “thank you”!   It keeps employees happy and coming back for more throughout the workday.  And they don’t have to go anywhere to enjoy fresh fruit, chips, cookies, trail mix, and more. Better break room snacks that employees crave also become a benefit to you as the employer, giving businesses a competitive edge when attracting top talent in the New York City job market. Your Corporate Essentials consultant will show you what’s hot on today’s upscale snack shelves so you can have them on yours, with in-demand, healthy snacks throughout the work week.  


That’s because we believe it’s not just providing products; it’s making sure you have the right product at the right time and that it’s being displayed well. You want to make sure you’re dealing with a company that understands the relationship and service aspects better than anyone else.


Our break room “snack-ticians” deliver the goods, stock your shelves, take inventory, break down the boxes, and leave your team with what they want to perk up their day. Our customized programs are based on your specific needs and team preferences, and we’ll switch up your snack offerings on a regular basis.


Depending on your break room setup, you can boost the snack offerings with healthy dips and spreads, yogurts, crudites, and cheese & crackers. Yes, we have those, too!


Brewing Up Specialty Coffee To Fuel Your Team

Coffee service is a long-time staple of the workplace. Partnering with a pantry service provider that has specialty coffees makes a big difference in fueling positive workplace culture.


At Corporate Essentials, we know that today’s discerning coffee drinkers are looking for the ultimate cup of coffee at the office without having to go around the corner. Many employees are looking for locally roasted, artisanal coffees for the coffee house experience in the office break room. It’s a big reason why we work with the best local roasters in the New York metro area to bring that craft coffee experience to your break room.


As with all our office coffee and break room services, we’ll help you select the right specialty coffee for your team, including top national name-brand coffees.


The Right Coffee Machine Sets the Tone

We’re also experts in coffee machines and brewing equipment to make sure your employees are always enjoying great coffee at its best. Our wide range of coffee brewing machines—from bean-to-cup brewers to the elegant app-driven TopBrewer—accommodates every budget, capacity, and break room for your NYC/NJ office. Our coffee machine experts simplify the selection process and help you choose the right equipment. They’ll also adjust your coffee machine’s factory settings so it correctly brews the coffee you’ve selected to enhance the break room experience.


Additional Perks and Offerings to Make Your Office Stand Out

Are you offering specialty beverages beyond hot coffee? Leading the beverage trend today are kegged cold brew coffee, kombucha, and functional beverages, as well as teas, juices, and filtered water. If your team is all about the coffee, we can arrange coffee tastings with the roasters, who come to your office to talk about their products and process and share samples of their coffees.


Consider adding workplace dining to your menu of office perks. The Corporate Essentials culinary team can whip up some amazing meals that bring the farm-to-table dining experience to your office. Our catered meals are made with locally sourced ingredients, menus change seasonally, and we can accommodate various dietary restrictions and preferences.
