Whether you run on Dunkin’ or can’t drive past your local coffee shop without spending some bucks, we can all agree that America is one caffeinated nation. According to the National Coffee Association, coffee drinkers in the U.S. consume an average of 3 cups of java per day. In 2018, more than a third picked up their morning pick-me-up outside of their own kitchens. While more than 60 percent agree that it’s wise to limit caffeine intake, it doesn’t look like Americans are cutting back on the joe just yet.
The internet has made it easier to find local coffee shops, and even purchase blends and equipment for the percentage who choose to make coffee at home. At ROI Consulting, we like being part of that process to keep America caffeinated by empowering the coffee ecommerce business. Pour yourself a cup and learn about how ROI Consulting is helping energize these coffee businesses.
Founded twenty years ago by Don and Linda Eckles, Scooter’s Coffee began as a single drive-thru coffeehouse in Bellevue, Nebraska (home to ROI Consulting!). Scooter’s—so christened after their daughters’ nickname—has remained committed to high-quality drinks and speedy service, all with a smile. (And a smiley face sticker.)
Fortunately, even those who don’t live near a Scooter’s can still enjoy the Scooter’s Coffee experience through whole bean coffee and single serve cups for K-Cup brewers. Scooter’s hosts their B2B ecommerce store through Clearnine and, more recently a B2C store launched on WooCommerce. By adding IN-SYNCH by ROI Consulting to their blend, Scooter’s can ensure that customer order information flows freely from their ecommerce platforms to their Sage 100cloud to make sure coffee orders are processed correctly and delivered on time.
Ballard Brands, LLC
You probably won’t see a Ballard on the corner of Main Street, but if you’ve ever seen PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans, The Original City Diner, or WOW Café, you’ve seen a Ballard Brand business. Formed in 2001 by the Ballard brothers, Ballard Brands, LLC owns, operates, and manages restaurants and food/beverage concepts in 28 states and three countries.
In addition, Ballard Brands also operates wholesale brand New Orleans Roast coffee. This brand is available in restaurants, hotels, airports, and convenience stores. If you just can’t get enough New Orleans Roast, you can also buy coffee by the bag or the K-Cup online. Ballard also offers its PJ’s Coffee online. Your caffeine options are endless. So are Ballard’s online stores. They operate multiple Shopify and Amazon ecommerce stores, most recently launched in March of 2018. Keeping track of all those orders is no easy feat, but Ballard Brands keeps their java jiving with the help of IN-SYNCH. With IN-SYNCH, order data speeds from ecommerce to Sage 100 ERP and back again, ensuring that customers are never left out of stock of their favorite beans.

The world leader in specialty cleaning products for coffee and espresso equipment, Urnex helps make sure that your cup of coffee is exactly the way you like it every single time.
