Oct. 8, 2012

The results of a sweeping office coffee service survey that reveal a host of strategic insights about how operators can enhance their business will be unveiled at the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) CoffeeTea&Water 2012 event in New Orleans, NAMA Director, Coffee and Water Service, Roger Stewart NCE5, CCS, announced. CT&W is the blockbuster coffee, tea and water service show for operators nationwide to be held Nov. 13 to 15, and the results will be presented Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the New Orleans Hyatt Regency. 

When asked about the results of the survey Stewart said, in a prepared statement, “The research clearly identifies opportunities that can help operators grow their business. Attendees will learn about new products that could be sold to accounts, insights into budgets and how that translates into increasing sales, along with how account decision makers view the business practices of their coffee service providers. Attendees to this session will walk away with specific facts that can help them develop new strategies to enhance their businesses.” 

The research was conducted by Heart+Mind strategies, a strategic research consulting firm headquartered in Washington, D.C. Heart+Mind President and Managing Partner Mike Dabadie will analyze and discuss the findings at the show. 

“Dabadie’s observations from this survey deliver real-world insights that can help you boost your business.  The results may change your thinking, help shape your strategy and the way your organization approaches accounts.  The findings are sure to help you expand your business among workplace employees and decision makers,” said Stewart. “You don’t want to miss this vital and enlightening education session.”

Dabadie is exceptionally qualified in his field of expertise. Before founding Heart+Mind Strategies, he spent more than ten years with WirthlinWorldwide, was the chief marketing officer at Community Coffee Co., and served as the pollster to several elected officials.

In discussing the research Dabadie said, "At its most basic level, coffee is 99 percent black water.  Yet, it engenders passion and commitment to products, services, and brands.  We are seeing the same trend of passion for tea and water.  And this extends into the office where consumers want a better and deeper experience with their beverages, with their service providers, and with their colleagues," he concluded.
