Regardless if you’re cramped or you have counter space to spare, you can take your veterinary reception and waiting area to the next level by offering your clients something to eat or drink while they wait. Your clients will appreciate the welcoming touch, especially if they have a long-term wait. Not sure where to start? Here are some of our favorite spaces used for serving beverages and snacks to those waiting.
Tight space can still be the right space. Just look at Cleveland Park Animal Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina. In their reception area they house a small sink complete with a Keurig and variety K-Cups for their guests to choose from.
Bring the bakery to you with a beverage and snack bar like Palm Beach Veterinary Specialists has in West Palm Beach, Florida. Their lobby features a coffee machine, baked goods and complimentary Wi-Fi.
There can be comfort in every corner. Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California, hosts a nook in their reception area that offers cookies, bottled water and coffee to enjoy during the wait. Plus we’ll take the smell of fresh-baked cookies over anal glands any day.
Café the veterinary client’s way. At Petit Brook Veterinary Clinic in Colchester, Vermont, those waiting in the reception area can help themselves to tea and coffee in a variety of styles and flavors.
Rustic décor and refreshments pair well at Happy Tails Veterinary Care in Bethlehem, Georgia. Here, veterinary clients can help themselves to juice, water, or coffee—set up in a chic barn-style setting that will make them feel at home.
At Veterinary Healthcare Associates in North Augusta, South Carolina, those waiting in reception can cool off or warm up with coffee or a selection of juice and water from a glass-front fridge.
A counter just for clients. Westbury Animal Hospital in Houston, Texas, offers clients an array of water, tea, bottled water and cookies, all spread across a counter before them to choose from.
