Build a QSR and C-Store destination for freshly blended drinks

The smoothie market is strongly skewed toward “freshness”

  • Incremental sales – the number #1 reason for any menu addition is to generate incremental revenue and profitability

  • The smoothie market continues to expand in multiple foodservice categories, including QSRs, up nearly 8% in the past 3 years, while other beverage types are flat to declining

  • Capitalize on different food occasions for incremental add-on sales (beverage or snack choice) or as an incremental visit (meal substitution or snack occasion)

  • Menu variety including additional healthy choice options – expand customer appeal

  • Smoothies have a healthy connotation, and depending on formulations can truly be a healthier alternative to other beverages, snacks or even meals, expanding your customer base

  • Customized beverage line – maximize opportunity with proprietary branded product

  • Add a new smoothie line to fit your brand personality and positioning

Maximize your Beverage sales

Smoothies are clearly a growth area in the traditional restaurant, fast casual, QSR and C-Store categories.

  • Many who do not drink smoothies say it’s because they simply didn’t think of it. So plant the seed and then offer value incentives that soften the perception of high price points.

  • Take advantage of our increasingly snack-centric society by positioning smoothies as a filling late-morning or late-afternoon snack. Or bundle them with foodservice items for a complete meal offering.

  • Frozen Beverages are one of the primary draws to the c-store and representing a veritable goldmine of profitability and a vital foodservice counterpart, essential in bundle meals as well as a stand-alone draw for customers who continue to demand made-my-way, customized food and beverage options. 

  • The desire for more flavor options has led to the emergence of the made-to-order (MTO) trend in c-store beverages.

  • A consumer’s first need state is usually thirst as they enter a c-store. Beverages have become increasingly important as a traffic driver for QSR and c-stores.
