Auto-Thick in Action – Part 1:
- Improve Resident Quality of Life by offering a complete thickened beverage menu by the glass, rather than a foil cup.
- Consolidate Inventory by reducing SKUs and freeing up valuable walk-in & dry storage space.
- Reduce Costs by offering Flavored Waters, Teas, Cocktails & Blends — not solely thickened Juice, which is costly.
- Fast-Flow Dispensing reduces demand on labor and streamlines operations.
Manually mixing thickened beverages is labor intensive and never absolutely consistent. Costly pre-packaged portion cups and bottles are only available in a limited selection, require constant inventory management, and demand substantial storage space. These realities created the need for an alternative, superior solution… and Auto-Thick is the answer!
