It’s a tale as old as time- retailers have an abundance of products to display and never enough space to do it. Too much product on countertops can prove difficult for consumers to sort through while not enough product means retailers are missing a valuable opportunity to boost high-margin impulse purchases.
Displaying product is only half the battle; retailers must account for foodservice equipment and accessories as well. Dominating countertop space with separate on-counter cup, lid, napkin, and condiment dispensers, along with other assorted accessories, significantly limits opportunities to showcase product and ultimately hurts retailers’ bottom line.

Multiuse Condiment Dispensers: Instead of using a different dispenser for coffee stirrers, condiments, lids, and other odds-and-ends, retailers can utilize a combination condiment dispenser. Combination organizers not only utilize less countertop space but also make it easier for customers to find the items they need.
Tomlinson’s countertop lid organizer consolidates lids, straws, and other beverage accessories into one display to expedite service at beverage stations. These organizers are available in small and large sizes to suit any countertop.
In-counter Dispensers: Retailers can forgo countertop dispensers altogether with in-counter dispensers. Mounting cup, napkin, and other dispensers in counters optimizes counter space and allows store operators to display more product on countertops.
The Modular Simpli-Flex® 2000 Cup Dispenser utilizes 3 Simpli-Flex gaskets to accommodate paper, plastic, Styrofoam, and other cups with a lip diameter of 2-1/4” to 4-5/8”. Simpli-Flex dispensers can be mounted in counters or cabinets to maximize countertop footprint.
Combination Dispensers: For those who prefer on-counter cup dispensers, utilize a combination dispenser. Combination dispensers combine cups,lids, straws, and other beverage dispensers into one dispenser. While on-counter cup dispensers take up more space, combination dispensers help customers quickly find the items they need in one place.
Tomlinson’s Combination Cabinet Dispensers combine cups, conventional lids, domed lids, and straws into one area to eliminate clutter and optimize countertop space. These cabinets are customizable to fit retailers’ specific needs.
