Franke Coffee Systems – Americas was selected as the CSP 2023 Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest Winner in the Foodservice Equipment: Dispensed Beverages product category for its latest innovation in hot coffee. Now in its 20th year, the Best New Product Contest honors top product innovations and solutions, focusing on the most successful product launches from the past year.
At the NACS Show in Atlanta, CSP Magazine awarded Franke Coffee Systems the 2023 Retailer Choice Best New Product in the Foodservice Equipment: Dispensed Beverages product category. This win is particularly exciting because retailers had the opportunity to vote on their favorite finalists in CSP magazine’s 20th annual Retailer Choice Best New Products Contest (BNPC). The editors of CSP identified finalists in 23 product categories from products nominated by convenience store industry members. Then it was left to convenience store retailers to select the winners of the BNPC coveted award.
In the c-store channel, foodservice category sales growth is driven primarily by prepared food and hot dispensed beverages. A good coffee program is critical to the hot dispensed category – today’s consumers expect high quality coffee, wherever they go. Franke’s product innovation around bean-to-cup equipment, most recently introducing the A400 Fresh Brew, grind whole beans fresh for each cup – delivering on consumers expectations for high quality while also reducing waste by brewing on-demand. This type of innovation contributes to category sales growth and allows Franke to customize coffee programs to meet the specific needs of its customers.
“We are incredibly honored to be named the CSP 2023 Retailer Choice Best New Products Contest Winner; and especially thrilled by the fact that our c-store partners voted us as their favorite,” said Brittany Tresemer, Marketing Director at Franke. “This award is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire Franke team. We have always strived to provide our partners with innovative professional coffee machines, and this recognition motivates us to continue to stay ahead of category trends and our c-store partners’ needs in terms of quality, performance, and innovation.” Through the development of innovative technologies, Franke is proud to receive this award in 2023 along with the Convenience Store News (CSN) Category Captains Award announced earlier this year. Both awards align with its commitment to its customers to be innovative, creative, and insightful to meet the needs of the evolving consumer.
