Restaurants, cafés, quick-service restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores and other foodservice outlets rely on fresh and clean water for daily business. Controlling water quality can be vital to building customer loyalty and maintaining brand identity.
You may consider incoming water to be fixed, stable and unchanging, but quality varies widely from region to region and even street to street. High levels of dissolved minerals, the use of disinfectants and the presence of tiny solid particles — even residual bacteria — may result in unpleasant taste. Untreated water may also cause scaling on internal parts, corrosion on metal surfaces and degradation of gaskets and seals within your valuable appliances.
Don’t choose between providing high-quality water and protecting your equipment — both are possible! Protect your business’s bottom line by implementing a filtration system that you can trust.
From the ice in your beverages to the steam in your combi oven, the quality of your water makes an impact on the quality of your customers’ experiences.
As a brewer of beverages, almost everything you serve starts with water, and the quality of your finished drinks is reflected in the quality of your water.
Smoother coffee. Clearer ice cubes. Combi ovens running at full steam. When you work in food service, the quality of water you use is key to the right customer experience. Having quality filtration products may save time and money in the long run. Reducing impurities that may be in your water helps things taste and look better. Filtering water also helps reduce scale build-up, so your machines can run more efficiently with fewer service calls.
One of the most noticeable problems — usually leading to customer complaints — is that untreated water may result in off-flavours. These may be caused by a number of contaminants that may be present in your water, including dissolved minerals and sediment particles or disinfectants like chlorine or chloramine. Reducing such contaminants helps products taste better. For example:
Even if customers have no complaints over sub-standard food and beverages, low-quality water can damage machinery. One of the most damaging water quality issues is scale caused by dissolved minerals deposited onto machine surfaces. This may lead to more machine breakdowns, requiring more maintenance, and ultimately reduced machine lifetimes. For example:
Unhappy customers and unreliable machinery can only lead in one direction: a negative effect on business. Here are just a few examples of how poor water quality can directly affect business:
Help your school's water pass the lead test. Reduce up to 99% or more of the lead in your educational facility's drinking water, while reducing cysts, chlorine taste and odour, with 3M water filtration solutions.
