Route 74

High impact, convenience, speed and choice of drink size is just what long distance truck drivers need from a 24 hour retail refreshment station.


Route 74 is located 26 miles south of Glasgow at Lesmahagow, Junction 10 of the M74 and offers secure parking for 150 trucks; trailer drops, refrigerated vehicles and transporter vehicles. The general public also have access to the car wash, 100 seat fully licensed restaurant and the 24 hour forecourt shop.

Coffee Tower.. as the public self serve a simple product display and coffee preparation area (sugar and lids) is vital.

Speedy service.. The Bolero and Kenco 2 Go boiler deliver drinks in 11 seconds (varies by cup size) which means everyone get served quickly.

Drink size options.. 12oz and 16oz cups, with up to 240 drinks per hour –  ensures convenience, speed and choice for drivers in a hurry.

Kenco Millicano Whole bean instant coffee.. was selected as a well-known brand  satisfying the instant coffee preference of many of Route 74’s customers, but also offering a premium mouth feel of a roast and ground for others. Cadbury’s Chocolate, PG Tips, Bovril and soups complement the range and appeal to the varied customer tastes.

Simplicity of cleaning and easy replenishing of the canisters was important for the staff, the Bolero’s smooth lines makes maintaining ideal for this location.

The engineer from Alba installed the machine with a flow jet pump system initially as we wanted the flexibility to move the Tower once the shop fitting had been completed. Staff training took place at the site and laminated daily and weekly routine sheet were also left to act as an aid for the cleaning procedure.

A telephone helpline and full parts and labour warranty are offered on both pieces of equipment. and a dedicated Account Manager offers additional support to Route 74 – helping with product and technical support and also offering re-training for new members of staff.

“I was looking to provide a quality coffee plus other hot drinks for take away service from our 24 hour, 7 days a week retail outlet. We needed a strong brand to match our competitors facilities - our customers get a free coffee with purchases of 300 litres”. Alba Beverage’s staff guided me through the process, from an initial meeting in their showroom I was able to try and agree on the choice of branded products, machines and housing. Delivery, installation and set-up went to plan and we’ve been provided with on-going account support ever since”.
