The Best Office Drinks for Every Price Point

    Best office drinks at every price (1)

    Ah, drinks: They hydrate us, caffeinate us, and give us something to do with our hands when we're awkwardly standing around at a work event. And if you're an office manager or member of a workplace team, beverages can be the difference between a bubbly, engaging environment and one that falls flatter than two-day-old Coke left out on the counter. 

    In a recent Flavia survey, nearly half (46%) of employees said free beverages would encourage them to come into the office—making drinks the number one requested on-site perk! Additionally, the USDA reports that US adults drink between 10 and 11 beverages per day. Your employees aren't just hoping you keep them hydrated, it's integral to their day. 

    But all drinks aren't created equal or priced that way. According to the U.S. Beverage Manufacturing & Filling Locations Database, there are approximately 2,458 beverage manufacturers in the U.S. alone. Not to mention a laundry list of flavors, textures and dietary-related options available at the market. Having that many choices makes deciding which drinks will satisfy your team and budget a tall order. Below, we've rounded up the top office drink suggestions that are guaranteed to make a splash, no matter the cost.

    Soda🥤

    Pepsi

    Value 💰

    Pepsi 

    We're not going to weigh in on the Pepsi vs. Coke debate (hey, to each their own!), but we will say that on average per can, this Pepsi option costs less than its competitor.

    COKE

    Moderate 💲

    Classic Coca-Cola 

    Sometimes, only the bubbly, crisp taste of a classic Coke can hit the spot. Did we mention we also sell Coca-Cola in a glass bottle in most locations?
