Food Service Operators Can Capture the Highly Profitable Specialty Coffee Market With No Capital and No Risk

SEATTLE, WA–(Marketwired – Jul 27, 2016) – Concordia Coffee Company, a subsidiary of The Middleby Corporation and a leading manufacturer of automated and self-service coffee and espresso machines serving the commercial foodservice industry, today announced the launch of Plan Zero, an all-inclusive program that covers their lineup of coffee machines from installation to preventative maintenance, to repairs, all for a low fixed monthly payment. The company’s machines are currently operating at thousands of customer sites, spanning convenience stores, hotels, restaurant chains, office coffee and institutions. Concordia was the first to design, patent and bring to market fully automated espresso machines over 25 years ago.
