Twenty Years Tells Us… Keep It Fresh!

Spring CleaningIt’s that time of year again when we start our Spring cleaning and begin looking ahead at the warmer months. While keeping a neat and tidy business is important, so is changing things up a little. This can be done a number of easy and inexpensive ways.

Start by moving furniture and fixtures around. This can change the vibe of the store and can even highlight certain products. When we owned retail outlets this technique was especially helpful when certain retail items weren’t moving as quickly we liked. Older items began to sell better, and we didn’t even have to mark them down!

Spring CleaningYou can keep it fresh by adding new items to your menu. Offer seasonal or limited time only options. Customers really respond to new and interesting choices and will often spend more for them.  One of our customer’s introduced a cupcake latte once and sold more of those than mochas during the promotion period.

We’re keeping it fresh too. You can expect to see several new products this Spring (like Sweet Heat from Torani). So, be sure to call us at 800-835-5943 and ask our Customer Care Associates for ideas on what’s new, and what’s old that can be made new again.
