Our name originates from the Greek word Agora which was a central spot in ancient Greek city-states. The literal meaning of the word is “gathering place” or “assembly”. The agora was the center of athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city. The name “Agora” is a statement that we have set out to be a different kind of Refreshment Company. Our consultants’ main objective is to create a gathering place for conversation and a sense of community, bringing about a feeling of connection between our client companies and their valued employees and customers.
Our ownership consists of a father and son team both born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. With a combined experience of over 50 years in service industries, we know the value of quality products, customer service, and strong client relationships. We know that anybody can fulfill orders, but our clients decide to work with us because we build the best solution for their unique needs. We define expectations, offer value, and follow through. That is our formula for success.
Bringing our passion for coffee, health and hydration, and innovative solutions to the modern break room and hospitality segment.
Agora’s vision is to become the market innovator and leader in the refreshment markets that we operate. We will continually seek to invest in technology to make us more responsive, lean, and grow so that we can optimize the overall service experience for our clients. We want to drive revolutionary programs that disrupt the status quo, and focus on sustainability, providing healthier options, and supplying customer demand.
We want to grow swiftly through a motivated sales force without sacrificing quality or our obligation to those who support us. We are not satisfied with anything less than excellence, and should follow through from every point of contact. Lastly, we will return our success through goodwill programs that support our community and the greater good.
