YESWAY + VIVIAN COMPANY: BEAN2CUP ProgramVivian Company
In February 2021, convenience store chain Yesway approached Vivian Company to aid in rolling out their new “Bean 2 Cup” coffee program. Using Schaerer brewing technology, these innovative machines offer freshly ground and brewed coffee on demand, both hot and cold.
This is fundamentally different from other so-called bean-to-cup machines because it does not utilize fractional packaging or other substitutes. Instead, it features integrated grinders and is preprogrammed to brew consistently to a chosen flavor profile in one step every time.
After identifying 115 locations they desired for installation of these systems, Yesway contacted the Vivian team to provide the groundwork prior to machine installation and calibration. We constructed electric, plumbing and drain lines as well as shut off valves and water filtration systems for these machines. Our team of experienced service coordinators created a seamless schedule for our technicians to execute the work from start to finish.
As a result of this extremely successful installation/rollout last year, we were chosen to coordinate Yesway’s 2022 shipping logistics, storage, delivery, electrical/plumbing work, equipment installation and calibration of coffee brewing units. To further ensure a successful rollout, our technicians completed training with the manufacturer to receive install/calibration certification earlier this year. We are proud to announce that we will help complete an additional 52 Yesway locations by the end of April 2022.
Our successful partnership with Yesway showcases Vivian Company’s capabilities in commercial interior remodeling. We can provide plumbing, electric, flooring, carpentry, logistics, and rollouts that are consistent in multiple markets. Paired with our superior expertise in food service equipment installation/maintenance and casework, we are able to offer many options for food service businesses nationwide.
