Coffee amenity with reporting
Residents have responded positively to the quality of the locally-roasted coffee provided by SipWithMe, and Roman has the data to prove it. Monthly, automatic usage reports that come from SipWithMe is something Roman looks forward to so he can make future adjustments to better serve his community – whether it’s changing the cup allowance amount, or adding additional mix-ins. The residents particularly love that the coffee is local from Caffe Vita, and that the beans are freshly ground to order.
Community building through SipWithMe events
Roman envisions SipWithMe as a catalyst for community engagement. By hosting events, like the upcoming coffee and dessert gathering, he aims to create informal settings where residents can share feedback and connect with the property management team. This approach humanizes the management team, further fostering a sense of care and community. "SipWithMe events will make our connection to tenants closer, and they will feel taken care of."
Economic benefits and resident retention
Roman emphasizes the economic advantage of SipWithMe, noting the significant savings for residents compared to local coffee shops. By offering just 15 free cups, residents save over $100 on barista-level coffee drinks each month. Plus, the ability for residents to craft their own specialty drinks further enhances the appeal, contributing to increased resident satisfaction and potentially attracting future residents.
