Sacramento® Tomato Juice Is Here to Boost Your Beverage Delivery!

News & Trends

February 16, 2021



Crafting your own beverage delivery campaign can revive sluggish dine-in sales during the pandemic. According to Datassential, 24% consumers have ordered alcoholic beverages with their food delivery, but 79% of consumers say that they are interested in some form of alcohol take out or delivery. In fact, 50% say they are interested in cocktail deliveries on their own, even without food. Those most interested consumers tend to be male, Gen Z or Millennials with high incomes and self-described “foodies”. That demographic mix is a perfect match for you to dial in your profit margins and with premium Sacramento® tomato juice. Here are five insights on how Sacramento can help grow your beverage delivery business.

  1. Bloody Mary’s Are Trending – Up 8% since 2016, 37% of all casual dining restaurants offer a Bloody Mary on their menu. Even more impressive is the 14% growth in Bloody Maria’s (tequila instead of vodka) and the 10% growth in Michaladas (red Mexican beer). All three are best served with Sacramento Tomato Juice or Bloody Mary Mix.02-008-1216_RG_RUSH-SyscoSocialMediaPackages_ArticleFramesHiLoDiner
  2. Single Serve vs. Multi-Serve – Consumers during COVID are boozing it up both ways with their take-out or delivery orders says Datassential. 53% say they prefer multi-serve quantities and that means a higher ticket. Thus, pre-mixing a half-gallon container of your famous Bloody Mary or Bloody Maria is not out of the question and has other advantages.
    1. It’s a great way to build back your Brunch business for small groups or families and an entrée into your big brunch menu.
    2. It’s a great way to promote to consumers tailgating at home through fall sports.
    3. When using a reusable container – put your brand or QR code on it on it! It’s billboard in the customer’s home.
  3. Let Them Play with A Branded Beverage Kit – Some online retailers are charging upwards of $90 for Bloody Mary beverage kits. Consumers are ready to play bartender with their beverages after largely sheltering at home for most of the year. Sacramento 5.5 oz. Tomato Juice individual portioned cans are an ideal addition along with some premium vodka or tequila single serving bottles. Throw in a container or ramekin of your own secret ingredients and offer an upgrade with some bar condiments ranging from stuffed olives and pickle spear or even bar mix!02-008-1216_RG_RUSH-SyscoSocialMediaPackages_ArticleFramesBetterHalfMake it a Hungry Man’s Deluxe by adding bacon strips, chicken wings or cocktail shrimp.02-008-1216_RG_RUSH-SyscoSocialMediaPackages_ArticleFramesHellsKitchen
