No matter what you call it - virtual
or online work, remote or at-home
job, distributed teams, or telecommuting
- a new flexible work culture
is taking hold and has changed OCS,
perhaps lastingly.
Looking back, OCS had enjoyed
consistent annual growth between
2010 and 2019. Moderate increases
in white-collar workplace populations,
greater ranges of refreshment
products, new brewing and pure water
technologies, and improved operating
efficiencies collaborated to expand the
OCS market through those years.
And while the U.S. unemployment
rate was historically high in April
2020 (almost 15%), a month into the
officially called COVID-19 pandemic,
it was the immediate swing to at-home
work that dealt the severe blow to the
OCS industry.

In the early stages of the pandemic,
some 35% of all Americans worked
from home, nearly 50 million employees,
according to the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics. However, at the end
of 2020, studies conducted by the Pew
Research Center found that 71% of
office workers were doing their jobs at
home all or most of the time.
As a result of the vast reduction
of location staff and restrictions on
access to shared breakroom amenities,
90% of operators taking part in this
survey reported a decrease in sales last
