Dec 14 - Burger King Putting Coke Freestyle Machine at All Company Stores

Coca-Cola Co.'s Freestyle soda fountain got its biggest endorsement yet, with Burger King Corp. planning to install the high-tech machine in all 850 U.S. company-owned restaurants.

Burger King expects to install the machines, which offer more than 100 drink flavors and feature a touch-screen menu, by April 2012, boosting the total number of locations with a Freestyle fountain by nearly 50%. The chain, with 7,250 U.S. locations, is also recommending that U.S. franchisees install the Freestyle machine on a voluntary basis, making it the largest restaurant chain to do so.

Coca-Cola's Freestyle is currently in 1,772 locations, including restaurants, movie theaters, stadiums and super markets, and lets customers choose from dozens of sodas and other drinks, like Coke Zero with Raspberry or Fanta Strawberry, as opposed to the dozen or so flavors on a traditional soda fountain. The company started developing the machine in 2005, and has started to get traction in recent years. Chains like Firehouse Subs and Five Guys Burgers & Fries have agreed to put the machine in all their restaurants this year, and Freestyle is being tested in some Wendy's Co. and McDonald's Corp. locations.

Coca-Cola hopes its new soda fountain can address stagnant beverage sales in recent years in the food-service segment, a problem for both Coca-Cola and its restaurant customers. Over the last five years, restaurants have seen servings excluding tap water decline 6%, losing out on 2.7 billion servings, according to NPD Group, a research firm. In that time, consumers have increasingly opted for tap water or didn't buy a drink to save money.

Coca-Cola spokeswoman Susan Stribling said that restaurants that have installed Freestyle saw double-digit increases in beverage services, total transaction and total restaurant sales in 2010. Nearly two-thirds of consumers also say that the Freestyle machine impacts which restaurant they'll visit, Ms. Stribling said.

Credit-Suisse in July said that Coca-Cola's goal is to get Freestyle machines into more than 70% of food-service locations over the next five years.

A key concern for fast-food chains is whether the new machine with more options would slow up service for customers. Jonathan Fitzpatrick, Burger King's chief brand and operations officer, said there was no impact on service times, although it took some customers time to get used to the new machine.

Mr. Fitzpatrick added that the machine helped boost beverage sales, and it also looks snazzier than existing fountain machines, improving the image of the restaurants. "People referred to it as the iPod of beverage machines," Mr. Fitzpatrick said.

The broad selection of the Freestyle machine also jibes well with Burger King's "Have it your way" tagline that touts the customer's ability to customize orders.

The Freestyle machine creates the drinks by mixing concentrated ingredients with water and sweetener. The flavors come in cartridges that are easier to store and cheaper to ship, as opposed to bulky bags of syrup used in traditional fountain machines.

Stribling declined to comment on how much Freestyle machines cost. Previous reports said Coca-Cola charges 30% more for Freestyle than traditional fountains.

Burger King last year was acquired by the New York-based private-equity firm 3G Capital Management in a deal valued at $4 billion.

has anyone else used these machines before? I was not impressed with them, it seemed that any drink that I chose had an odd flavor to it.

I have had them before they have them at this Dominos at UCF. Anyways the mixes are really good but people will spend time thinking about what they want to get too many options.
