More About the Challenge
Coffee and other specialty beverages are popular with high school students, so the Child Nutrition Director knew it was a good option for adding additional revenue. The problem was finding a space for it and keeping it self-contained since the main kitchen wasn’t close in proximity.
The Multiteria Solution
Multiteria’s Essence counter had the perfect look and feel for the coffee shop atmosphere. Multiteria and Lakeside customized the counter to provide maximum functionality in a small space. The front counter accommodates the Espresso machine and a large glass merchandiser for specialty waters, fruit and pastries. An undercounter refrigerator and backcounter provide storage for ingredients and supplies. There is even room on the counter for all the equipment and space to do smoothies. In keeping with the Starbucks look, Multiteria also created a small utility counter with a cutout for trash and an area for utensils, straws, etc. Finally Multiteria tied everything together with a custom logo for The Brewed Awakening brand.
