Why do businesses offer free tea or coffee?

Would you know why a business would give away free tea or coffee? Well, they have good reasons for doing it and I've listed a few of them for you below. 

The first reason is to introduce their product to you! When you try a company’s brand of tea or coffee, if you like it, there’s a chance in the future you’ll return to buy it. People love free stuff, and getting a free sample of tea or coffee is an excellent way to introduce potential customers to a product.When it comes to tea and coffee brands, there’s a lot of competition out there, and to get attention companies must think of ways to stick out of the crowd and draw you to their brands.

Moving on to the second reason, the brands aim to gain your loyalty. You know of a supermarket that is giving away free tea or coffee. Chances are you’ll want to shop there. Think of complimentary tea or coffee as a perk. It entices you to want to spend your money at the store because you’re gaining something extra as a result. So give yourself that bonus when you supermarket shop and get your free cups of tea. After all, you deserve it!
