Why Bar Merch and Why Now?

Sunshine sells drinks

With summer’s hot temps and extended hours, bars and restaurants usually see a boost in sales. In fact, according to BevSpot, a tech company that streamlines bar processes, spirit and beer sales sour in summer months. The popular phrase: sunshine sells drinks had to come from somewhere, right? Now is the perfect time to start branding everything in your bar. Let Brand+Aid help, it’s what we love to do.

Create an enhanced customer experience. Using carefully curated items can enhance both your customer’s experience at your bar or restaurant and your brand. Surrounding your customer with branded items – from serving glasses to matches to bar mats – builds brand awareness and loyalty. It also helps create a unique story and experience at your restaurant that will have them coming back again and again!

Employee loyalty and morale. Bars and restaurants are notorious for having high turnover. By creating branded merchandise for your employees – think uniforms, t-shirts, hoodies – employees will feel part of the team. Everyone loves getting free merch! These added incentives, however small they may be, can contribute to a better work environment and culture among your staff.

Create added revenue streams. Creating a bar or restaurant merch line is a great way to create an additional revenue stream for your organization. Compelling merch that speaks to your specific target customer, aligns with your branding, and is priced right, will attract a following. No question.

One of the best reasons to work with the Brand+Aid team is having the resources and access to wholesale merchandise. This access allows you to price your merch competitively while still earning money off the top. And, we keep our eye on design at all times. Working with us, you know your products will look good. Create a merch line and boost revenues and your bottom line.
