Rethink Your Drink - How to Expand Drink Options Without Losing Café Space

Thursday June 23, 2016 // By Lizzy Baldwin


Dr. Smoothie Multi-Beverage Solutions - Fruity Lemonade RefresherSpace in your café is one of the scarcer resources in the coffee industry - you can always buy more syrup, but getting more counter or fridge space requires playing café tetris or even remodeling your space. Like many café owners and managers, there may just not be room in your budget or schedule for a remodel. So, you eliminate any non-essential products possible, and maximize whatever space you can; however, you are always still looking for ways to expand your drink offerings.

Expanding your drink menu doesn’t necessarily require that you buy new products that will take up your valuable space. If you want to expand your drink menu, but do not have the space for new products; expand your menu with ingredients you already have on hand. Never be afraid to experiment with drink ideas. Every drink in history started with someone trying something that was not conventional. Can you imagine the first person who put dried leaves in their water?

Dr. Smoothie is a great example of a product that is extremely flexible when it comes to beverage options. With Dr. Smoothie fruit concentrates, smoothies are the first things that come to mind, and if you don’t have a smoothie offering, it may be something to consider. However, these fruit concentrates can be used for a variety of drinks including lemonades, teas, and sparkling fruit chillers!

Check out these 3 refreshing drink recipes for you to try with your favorite Dr. Smoothie Flavors!
