Hey all, my name's Mike. I own and manage Sarasota Pool Builders. We're considering investing in a commercial coffee maker, so I could use some advice. We've never had an actual office until just recently, so anytime we'd talk to customers, we drove to them. We now have an office customers can visit, but it's somewhat plain. I thought it may be a good idea to purchase a coffee machine for the customers to enjoy. Car dealerships have them sometimes, I just don't know if it's worth it for us. I did some searching online and found the one pictured below. 6 different types and holds about 6 gallons; it's about $3k. Most times when a customer comes in to talk about building a pool, they're there for at least 30 minutes because we have to talk about budget, timing, pool size, materials, how the construction process works, and so on. Personally, I think it'd be great if I were the customer, but I just don't know that it's worth the money. Any thoughts on this? Do you think it's a good investment?
