August 2, 2019


As consumers shy away from sugary drinks, forward looking operators are offering fresh, house-made drinks to capitalize on the movement. 


Lemonades & Limeades:

Lemonade is menued on 63% of restaurants. Limeade is menued at 2.7% of restaurants, although has seen significant growth over the last 4 years¹. The blend of sweet fruit and earthy flavors is an increasingly popular combination for hand-crafted lemonades and limeades.



Aguas Frescas:

A fresh and simple base allows operators to add their own special twist from herbs and fruit, to soda water and spirits.



Iced Teas:

Approximately 80% of tea consumed in American is iced². The change in seasons is the perfect occasion to introduce seasonal ingredients to iced teas.


Crafted Sodas:​​

Almost two in five consumers agree that most soft drinks are too high in sugar and the same percentage want to see more natural beverages on the menu³. To combat the decline of traditional sodas, operators should consider creative and unique combinations to offer consumers.


A strong beverage program is vital in a competitive industry and so is partnering with an industry leader.
