14 Nov Fresh Foods and a Fresh New Look at ReminderMedia
Fresh, innovative marketing solutions are the focus of ReminderMedia’s growing Philadelphia based direct marketing business. And fresh foods are now the focus of the award-winning company’s new break room. With its latest office expansion, ReminderMedia is creating a great new employee oasis featuring local specialties, gourmet bean-to-cup coffee, and plenty of space to relax and unwind.
ReminderMedia’s King of Prussia, PA headquarters employs over 200 talented professionals and is continually growing. Their American Lifestyle magazine is recognized nationwide as a valuable marketing tool for generating leads and retaining valuable clients. The company has also received multiple awards and is proud to be recognized by Philly.com as one of the areas Top Work Places. Creating a welcoming new place for employees to relax, dine, and collaborate was considered an important part of further improving their great working environment.
Director of Human Resources, Dave Brodish, took the lead in pursuing a modernized break room concept. Dave knew the addition of fresh foods would upgrade the dining experience. He selected a micro-market format that would introduce a new menu of fresh foods and expand their healthy snack and beverage selections.
Dave involved his co-workers when it came to choosing their vending services provider. “I met with several break room suppliers and had them provide us with a sampling of their fresh food menu items,” Dave said. “We then hosted a good old-fashioned taste test in the office. One Source Refreshment was the winner, hands-down.”
One Source Refreshment is a Philadelphia based, family-owned, vending services company that prides itself on delicious fresh foods, gourmet office coffee, and a wide selection of healthy snacks and beverages. Their Business Development Manager, Ron Anderson, worked with Dave to bring his vision for the break room to life, creating a market-style concept that includes a convenient self-serve payment kiosk. Since One Source Refreshment is part of the USConnect® network, employees each receive a USConnect card that they can use to pay for purchases, earn valuable rewards, and even make donations to the charity of their choice.
For Dave, the USConnect card also provided a great opportunity to more efficiently invest in his staff. Before now, ReminderMedia used to stock snack baskets throughout the office. It was a great idea – but it was time consuming to maintain. It was also hard to plan for consumption and appeal to everyone’s tastes. With USConnect, Dave can redirect those dollars. He now provides weekly snack money on each employee’s USConnect card, allowing them to choose their own favorites. ReminderMedia employees consider it a valuable perk of their new micro-market.
From conception to reality, Dave was really impressed by how smooth the process went with One Source Refreshment. Ron guided him through the entire process – from layout to equipment to menu selections. He was surprised at the micro-market’s quick and easy installation. Dave also really appreciated that Ron and his One Source Refreshment team spent additional days in the break room greeting employees and explaining all of the exciting new features of their micro-market. It all made for an extremely seamless transition.
Dave already sees the positive impact the new break room is having on employees. “I know they appreciate not having to leave the office to grab a great lunch – and that they will value it, even more, when winter weather hits Philadelphia.” Employees are loving the additional break room features too, like large screen televisions, foosball tables, and ping-pong tables. Dave adds, “They are already at home in their new space, enjoying delicious fresh foods and snacks and refueling during the workday.”
