With more consumers demanding healthy, portable snacks between meals or as meal replacements, juice-based specialty beverages have become a new daypart. Specialty beverages can drive traffic, encourage repeat business, and increase sales during off-peak dining hours.
More than half of consumers (51%) say they eat snacks at least twice a day, and 31% say they’re snacking more frequently than they were just two years ago.
Smoothies and juice blends deliver on two of the most important snack attributes – healthfulness and portability – and are a perfect option for a snack or meal replacement.
Using Sun Orchard® Juicery juices as a foundation for smoothies or juice blends, plus fresh fruit, veggie or herbal add-ins, can make your restaurant a snacking destination for all times of day. Create and promote LTO beverage specials during mid-morning snack time, as afternoon “pick-me-ups”, or for a non-alcoholic option on your happy hour menu.
