Smart Soda UK’s high-end healthy hydration solution at No1 Soho Place is ‘a European First’

Smart Soda UK has installed a purpose-designed, self-serve, multi-drinks bridge tower dispensing system for Apollo Management International LLP at its new premises at No1 Soho Place, London. It is believed that this is the first, and only, dispensing unit of its type in Europe

Tricon Foodservice Consultants was briefed to deliver a system that provided a free-issue self-serve hydration solution, consisting of a wide range of non- and low-sugar beverages. At the same time, they were asked to eliminate all plastic waste from the premises.

Smart Soda‘Apollo had experience of self-serve multi-drinks systems in its New York offices, but those mainly featured branded sugary sodas’, said Tricon Foodservice Consultants Project Director Chantal Bourquin-Quéva. ‘The client asked us to find a supplier which could meet the brief both for heathier drinks and a more environmentally friendly solution. We found Smart Soda UK, which was able to offer more than just plain water and already provided a variety of dispense solutions. We then began the process of designing something special which suited the unique needs of the client and the aesthetics of the building.

‘Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do, and we are always looking to implement systems where we can use reusable products and avoid disposables’, Chantal said. ‘The development of the bridge tower self-serve dispensing system has been a complete success. We work with architects and interior designers, so the look and feel of the Smart Soda bridge tower drinks system is hugely important. Alongside the benefits of healthy drinks and the sustainability gains, all parties were impressed by the ease of installation and how flexible the solution can be. That’s why we’ll be recommending similar solutions to other clients in the future.’
