Returning Office Workers, Emerging Opportunities for Suppliers
The U.S. office coffee service (OCS) market is projected to expand at an average rate of 24% annually, reaching $4.4 billion in 2026 from a historically low 2021 base, due to both returns to the office and rising prices. Gains will follow the pandemic-induced bust of sales in 2020 and 2021 when most office workers began to work from home full-time or part-time.
However, working from home is here to stay. Some companies are reducing the size of their office layouts in anticipation of a permanent decline in the number of employees present on-site at any given time. Still, with the increasing view that offices are places for collaboration instead of solo work that can be done at home, more offices are realigning to include spaces to accommodate such work. Since casual conversations are often done around snack and coffee spaces, this presents an opportunity for office coffee suppliers to outfit such spaces for collaboration.
