Hard Numbers for Soft Drinks

Jun. 8, 2016

You stock your shelves with high quality beer, wine and spirits, but why stop there? You can provide your customers with a selection of soft beverages and mixers that are works of art, ready to take cocktails to the next level or win over fans on their own.

“Research indicates consumers are looking for alternative drink options. In fact, two-thirds (67%) of Americans sometimes or frequently purchase new/different beverages, and 18% say they drink a wide variety of beverages.” Research from Mintel, QSR Magazine, March 22, 2016

Now available in Wisconsin, the many flavors on offer from Q Drinks are winning fans across the state. According to IRI Data, sales for Q Drinks brands alone grew by 73.2% nationwide, and are up 51.6% in the state over the last three months.

Consumers want options, and non-alcoholic/low-alcohol beers are growing in popularity. Adding high-quality low-alcohol options can help increase your receipts.

“Non-alcoholic beers recorded a 2.54% 5-year CAGR in 2015 (by volume), while low alcohol beers reported a CAGR of 4.9%. This compares to 1.57% for the total beer market.” Rachel Arthur, Beverage Daily, Feb. 26 2016
