Help improve product consistency, customer experiences, business continuity and your bottom line with filtration solutions from 3M.
Restaurants, cafés, quick service restaurants, coffee shops, convenient 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 — or 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. Combi ovens running at full steam. In the foodservice industry, quality water is essential in helping to ensure positive customer experiences. High quality filtration helps reduce impurities that can have a negative impact on the taste and the look of your beverages and ice. It also helps reduce scale buildup in your machines, so they run smoothy and require less maintenance.
One of the most noticeable problems — usually leading to customer complaints — is that unfiltered water may result in off-flavors. These could 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, require more maintenance and ultimately reduce 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:
To help reduce food and beverage quality impacts, business interruptions, added cost and, ultimately, reduced customer satisfaction, follow recommended guidelines on when to change your 3M water filter. Knowing more about what affects your local water quality will help you manage integrating water filtration into your business.
