Increase Sales Through Retail Coffee and Seasonal Drink Trends

Is your New Year’s Resolution to increase sales and profitability in 2015? We’re here to help.

Offer Retail Coffee

money-bean-guy2As we have said before, a majority of the coffee business remains in the home, where most people are brewing up their first coffee of the day. Providing customers with high-quality specialty coffee that they can take home with them for their first cup of the day will not only increase the profitability of your store, but it will increase customer loyalty as well. A bag of coffee bought from your store will remind customers of the type of product you provide and will keep them coming back to their favorite local spot again and again. Coffee is a popular gift item and an appealing retail bag will increase recognition of your store.

Stockton Graham & Co. has all of the materials necessary to help you bring a thriving retail coffee program to your store. All of our coffees can come prepackaged in six count, 12 oz. or 16 oz. retail bags, so you don’t have to do a thing! We can even help you create your own private label to promote your store on your custom bags. Another option is to set up bins that put your freshly roasted beans on display. This affordable option allows your staff to have a personal moment with customers as they fill the bag and hand it off.

Stay On Trend

Another great way to meet your sales goals for 2015 is with seasonal options that cater to consumer trends. Stockton Graham & Co. monitors the specialty beverage industry to inform our customers of what seasonal products to offer, and we can help you set up a limited time offer program to keep your menu fresh and exciting.

For example, as we all ring in the New Year with health centered resolutions, having sugar-free syrups, smoothies and snack options like KIND Bars and oatmeal are a great way to stay on trend and give sales a little boost. Sugar-free alternatives to the popular flavors like vanilla, caramel and hazelnut give those health conscious customers an indulgent treat without the calories or guilt. Smoothies like, Dr. Smoothie purees, are packed full of nutrients to power through the day and stick to health goals. KIND Bars and oatmeal are great options for a coffee shop to bring in because they are shelf-stable, healthy and a customer favorite.

For more information about seasonal trends or to talk to our team about retail coffee, give us a call at 800 835 5943.

Just add hot water, wait 3 minutes, stir and enjoy!

Building Your Business with Frozen Blended Drinks!

frappeSmoothies and frappes are among the fastest growing segments in the specialty beverage industry.  According to our product vendors, frappe sales bloomed to $4.3 billion in 2012 alone. Smoothies are also on the rise… they are increasing at a sales rate of $2 billion per year and expected to reach the $9 billion plateau (worldwide) by 2015. There is money to be made with these blended specialty drinks, and Stockton Graham & Co. is here to help you!

Frozen coffees and frappes first hit the stage in the late 90’s when Starbucks introduced the “Frappuccino®”. From then on massive franchises and independent, locally owned shops alike have implanted these frozen treats into their beverage menus with tremendous success. The flavors available are endless, drinks can be blended with milk alternatives for those with dairy aversions, and health supplements can be easily added to every drink! Frappes also appeal to coffee lovers when the weather is warm, and hot drinks, like drip coffee or espresso, seem less appealing. With leading industry brand names such as Big Train, Caffe D’ Amore, Dr. Smoothie- Café Essentials and recently Torani Real Cream, adding frappes to your menu can nearly quadruple your margin per ounce.

Fruit smoothies are nothing new to this industry, but in the past few years, their sales have reached all-time highs. Fact is, only about half of the population in the U.S. claims to be “coffee drinkers”, so there is still a large market for alternative specialty beverages.  Smoothie sales are sky rocketing, not only due to the fact that smoothies are so delicious, but also because of the diversity of their market. The smoothie market appeals to children, adults, the health conscious, customers looking for a sweet treat, or those needing a meal replacement to get through their day. Nearly every fast food franchise has made smoothies a permanent fixture on their menu, showing how valuable they are to the specialty beverage menu. Here at Stockton Graham & Co., we offer leading smoothie brands such as Dr. Smoothie, Torani, Jet, Monin and more, so be sure not to miss out this smoothie season!

Dr. Smoothie is offering a promotion right now to show you how well supplements fit into your smoothie business. If you buy 2 cases or more of Dr. Smoothie concentrate, you will receive a 3lb jar of Whey protein for free. Read more about this promotion and the benefits of supplements in our recent blog. DaVinci and Jet are also offering a promotion to show you how blended drinks can be easily flavored with syrups to add a special touch. Click here for more information. Our vendors know that blended drinks are a big seller, and they are looking to meet all your needs in this market.

If one or both of these drinks are missing from your shop’s menu, this is the perfect time to add them. For the rest of this month, Stockton Graham & Co. is INSTANTLY giving away several FREE cases of frappe powder or smoothie concentrate with ANY purchase of a Vitamix or Blendtec blender. The sales generated from the free product will cover the complete cost for multiple blender packages, so be sure to check this promotion out if a blender is (or will be) on your shopping list! For more information on our blender/free product promotion, visit our blending equipment page.

The numbers speak for themselves when it comes to frozen beverage sales and the profits they can generate. Here at Stockton Graham & Co., we can help outfit your store with the right frappes, smoothies and blenders. We even offer a Specialty Beverage Basics Coffee College course to assist your shop in learning to prepare these blended beverages. Adding these drinks to you menu now can be fast, easy and most importantly, profitable, so be sure to call us at 800.835.5943 to get your frozen beverage program started today!

Dr. Smoothie Whey Protein Promotion for Summer!

smoothieceauticals-wheyStockton Graham & Co. and Dr. Smoothie are teaming up to give you a great summer promotion! When you purchase 2 cases or more of Dr. Smoothie product, request your FREE 1 (3lb) jar of Smoothie Ceuticals Vanilla Whey Protein Concentrate! Limit of one promotional jar per customer, offer ends on May 31st 2013.

Dr. Smoothie recommends adding whey protein to their 100% and Classic smoothies to make them healthier, creamy and more valuable. Many shops charge an extra 50 cents to a dollar for the scoop of protein, thus raising profits! For example: it would cost you $1.64 to make a 100% crushed Dr. Smoothie smoothie with protein (based on product cost only), and if you charged $5 for it (an extra $1 for the protein) your profit on that drink would be $3.36! That’s a 28% increase in gross profit per drink.

Whey fluffs up when blended into the fruit concentrate, meaning you use less Dr. Smoothie fruit smoothie.This saves you at least 1oz of smoothie concentrate a drink, and in a bottle that offers roughly 8.6 drinks, you’ll be saving 8ozs of smoothie concentrate with each bottle: which means 2 more drinks per bottle!

The easiest recipe for using whey to make a 16oz drink is: 4oz of smoothie concentrate, 2oz of water, 1 scoop of whey protein and a 14oz cup of ice. You can mix smoothie concentrate flavors or add fruit for even more exciting menu options!

Everyone is looking for ways to be healthier with their tasty beverages, and many people are using protein smoothies as meal substitutes. The athletic community requires more protein to help get leaner muscle and many use supplements as a way to receive this protein. Whey protein is low in saturated fat and carbohydrates, which makes it a beneficial substitute. *

With this gift of whey, your shop can try out new drinks and start targeting a healthier market. This will introduce new clientele to your business and increase your bottom line. To take advantage of this offer, be sure to mention this promotion to your customer care associate upon ordering!

Adding supplements to blended beverages is becoming a huge trend in the specialty beverage market, don’t let your shop miss out on opportunities to please customers! This is a limited time offer, so call Stockton Graham & Co. at 800.835.5943 today to order, or learn more about this protein packed promotion!
