Time to ‘Spring’ into Smoothie Action!

Step aside, Punxsutawney Phil… spring is right around the corner weather you like it or not! And as the flowers begin to bloom, smoothie sales begin to zoom! Year after year, coffee shops and cafes sell the smoothie basics (i.e. strawberry, mango, pina colada etc.), but now is the time to take advantage of the unique (and equally as tasty) springtime flavors.

Here at Stockton Graham & Co., we have got you covered. Our vendors such as Dr. Smoothie, Jet and Torani, produce top-of-the-line smoothie mixes and purees, which are perfect for this time of the year. Flavors such as Four Berry, Raspberry, Acai Pomegranate Blueberry and more will have your customers coming back for more like they’ve caught spring fever!

The best way to kickoff your smoothie season is to promote a featured seasonal frozen drink. We recommend a wild berry based smoothie, garnished with whipped cream, drizzled puree and a fresh raspberry to top it off. Promoting a specialty beverage such as this will surly grab the interest of your customers, while also allowing you to stand out from your competitors, who are only offering the basics.

Spring is also a great time to promote your other specialty beverages as well. Iced teas, frappes, Italian sodas and even espresso-based drinks all have the potential to participate in any and all seasonal promotions! For more spring promotional ideas or additional information on other seasonal products, be sure to give us a call today, toll free, at 1.800.835.5943.

Happy spring!
