It’s not just “nice-to-have”; providing an array of snacks and drinks in the workplace is an integral aspect of fostering a positive work environment. Having access to a variety of snacks throughout the day not only offers employees a handy way to refuel, but it also creates a sense of community and belonging. That may sound strange, but it’s true! It encourages them to take breaks, engage in conversation, and return to their desks feeling refueled, recharged, and appreciated.  

At Gateway, we believe that variety is key. We offer a broad selection of both fresh and frozen food options for the breakroom that can accommodate all tastes and dietary restrictions. Whether your team prefers healthy snacks or indulgent treats, our range caters to everyone. The benefit of this is two-fold; it not only meets the diverse needs of your employees, but also shows that their wellbeing is a top priority.  

Beyond the immediate satisfaction of a tasty snack or drink, offering a diverse selection can also contribute to overall job satisfaction and productivity. When staff feel cared for and valued, they’re more likely to perform at their best. So, don’t underestimate the power of a well-stocked breakroom. With the right selection of snacks and drinks from Gateway, you can create an environment where everyone feels catered to and ready to tackle the day’s tasks.

Coffee – The Breakroom Essential

Coffee, often dubbed as the lifeblood of the workplace, is an essential part of a well-stocked breakroom. It can be a vital kick-start to early mornings, a much-needed boost for afternoon slumps, or a comforting warm cup during break times. Gateway acknowledges the significance of this beloved beverage in the daily office routine, which is why we offer an extensive variety of coffee beans from high-quality, respected producers. Our assortment caters to the vast array of taste profiles, from light, medium, to dark roast; there’s a perfect brew for every coffee aficionado in your office. Whether your team prefers a bold, strong blend or a smooth, mellow flavor, our diverse selection ensures everyone’s coffee cravings are met. Keep your breakroom well-stocked with coffee from Gateway Supplies to keep spirits high and productivity soaring in your workplace. 

Coffee Sweeteners and Creamers, Oh My! 

Creating a top-notch coffee experience in your breakroom isn’t just about the beans, it’s also about the additional elements that help bring out the full flavor of your coffee. We understand that everyone likes their coffee a bit differently. That’s why we offer an array of creamers, from traditional dairy to lactose-free and vegan options, to cater to the diverse dietary preferences of your staff. Our sweetener range is just as extensive, encompassing everything from classic white sugar to healthier alternatives like stevia and honey.  

And let’s not forget about flavoring syrups. Whether your team likes a dash of vanilla, a hint of caramel, or a touch of hazelnut, our selection includes a spectrum of flavors to delight every coffee lover’s palate. 

Sodas, Soft Drinks, and Energy Drinks 

Every employee has their own preference when it comes to quenching their thirst. While some find comfort in a steaming mug of coffee, others may prefer the fizz of a soda or the reinvigorating jolt of an energy drink. With this in mind, Gateway Supplies offers a wide assortment of non-coffee beverages to keep your team hydrated and energized throughout the workday. 

Whether it’s a refreshing cola, a zesty lemon-lime soda, or a chilled energy drink for that mid-afternoon push, our selection ensures your breakroom is equipped with a diverse array of drink options. In addition, for those seeking healthier alternatives, we offer a range of low-sugar and sugar-free soft drinks, in addition to a variety of brands of bottled water.  

Ensuring a varied beverage selection in your breakroom not only helps keep your team well-hydrated but also showcases your company’s commitment to catering to their individual needs and preferences. So, let Gateway assist you in creating a vibrant, all-inclusive beverage station that your team will appreciate. After all, hydration is a vital part of maintaining energy levels and focus, making it an essential component of a productive work environment. 

Food Service Disposables for Easy Disposal 

A well-equipped breakroom is incomplete without essential food service disposables like paper coffee cups, plates, disposable cutlery, and paper towels or napkins. They add convenience to break times, making for an efficient and hassle-free experience. At Gateway, we understand the importance of sustainability, which is why we provide options that are not only useful but also environmentally responsible. Choose from our array of sustainable disposables and lower your carbon footprint while maintaining a well-functioning breakroom.
