'N Kruidenierswinkelketting in Michigan probeer 'n dranklisensie kry, sodat kliënte 'n glas alkohol kan koop

As u die term 'n nuwe betekenis gee, "shop totdat u val."

Stel jou voor dat jy inkopies doen vir jou weeklikse spensbenodighede: melk; brood; eiers; organiese, glutenvrye boerenkoolskyfies, terwyl u terselfdertyd 'n glas wyn geniet. Dit klink 'n bietjie vergesog, maar die nuutste neiging om inkopies te doen, kan 'n bietjie ongemaklik raak terwyl jy die belangrikste dinge opdoen.

Busch's Fresh Food Market, 'n klein kruidenierswinkelketting in Michigan, soek 'n dranklisensie vir 'n winkel wat eers wes van Detroit oopmaak. Die ketting beplan om 'n bistro in die middel van die winkel te bedryf, met bier en wyn beskikbaar vir dors kopers.

"Michigan is 'n baie, baie versadigde kruideniersmark," het John Hunter, direkteur van bemarking vir Busch's, gesê het Michigan Live gesê. "Dit is belangrik om mededingend te bly en 'n stap voor die mededingers te bly."

Busch’s is nie die enigste nie. Whole Foods het wynkroeë sedert 2013 bedryf op 70 plekke. Target het ook bier en wyn per glas bygevoeg op sekere plaaslike markte in die Chicago -omgewing, en Kroger het selfs groeistasies in sy winkels bygevoeg, wat maklike hervulling moontlik maak. Kruidenierswinkels sê dalk dat hulle die kliënt se ervaring wil verbeter, maar hulle is waarskynlik ook bewus daarvan dat 'n effens dronk koper meer sal koop.


Kitskoskettings soos Taco Bell, Chipotle en Shake Shack gebruik alkohol om skares te lok

Die kitskosbedryf het blykbaar 'n stywe drankie nodig.

'N Toenemende aantal kettingrestaurante, soos Taco Bell en Chipotle Mexican Grill, bedien alkohol om nuwe kliënte te lok wat andersins elders kan gaan bier, wyn of cocktails gaan haal.

In die mededingende wêreld van kitskos benodig restaurante 'n voordeel. Volgens die navorsingsfirma NPD Group het die kettings in die jaar wat in September geëindig het, geen toename in kliënteverkeer gesien nie. Om alkoholiese drank by 'n bestelling te plaas, is 'n manier om verkope te verhoog. Gemengde drankies het 'n wins van tot 90% en bier 25%, volgens restaurantkonsultant John Gordon van die Pacific Management Consulting Group.

Taco Bell beplan om ongeveer 150 nuwe plekke in die Verenigde State oop te maak wat bier en bevrore drankies met tequila, rum, vodka en whisky sal bedien. En Pizza Hut, wat bier en wyn by ongeveer 3 500 van sy sitrestaurante bedien, gaan nog 200 by die spyskaarte voeg. Chipotle toets 'n bevrore weergawe van sy margarita, terwyl Shake Shack, met ShackMeister Ale en rooi en witwyn het 'n beperkte tydswyn aangebied om die terugkeer van die NBC TV-program "Will & amp Grace" te merk.

'Dit veroorsaak 'n bietjie gons-in beide sin van die woord', sê Aaron Allen, 'n wêreldwye restaurantkonsultant in Orlando. "Baie drankies met alkohol sal $ 3- $ 8 kaartjiepryse hê, afhangende van hul promosiepryse. Voeg 'n paar daarvan by en jy verhoog die tjekgemiddelde. Jy kan die inkomste verhoog sonder om die verkeer te lok."

Studie na studie toon dat 'n bietjie alkohol nie so erg vir jou is nie. Angeli Kakade (@angelikakade) het die storie.

Om 'n paar hooch te bereik, help ook kitskos en vinnig-toevallige kettings, wat die meeste van hul sake tydens ontbyt en middagete doen, om meer aandete te kry.

"Hulle probeer al jare om mense in die nag te laat inkom. Russo. "Dit is geensins 'n groot geldmaker nie. As hulle 'n bietjie bekostigbaar (alkohol) kan maak, wie weet. Dit kan wees."

In 2016 was drank verantwoordelik vir 'n half persent van die verkope, oftewel $ 1,4 miljard, in kitskosrestaurante en ander kettings waar kliënte by 'n toonbank, soos pizzawinkels, bestel, volgens Technomic, 'n konsultasiefirma in Chicago wat die neigings van die voedselbedryf volg. .

Jose Juarez het 'n paar ShackMeister Ale geniet met sy worsbroodjie -middagete die afgelope middag by Shake Shake in Madison Square Park in New York. Hy het gesê dat hy verbaas was om bier op die spyskaart te sien, maar hy betaal graag $ 5,79 vir die plastiekbeker van 16 gram.

'Ek was lus vir 'n bier en ek het dit gekry,' het die 34-jarige animator gesê, wat in San Jose, Kalifornië, besoek het, maar hy wonder ook of die tradisioneel kindervriendelike omgewing van 'n kitskosrestaurant die beste plek is om in te trek. "Dit is 'n gesinsplek. Jy wil nie 'n man hê wat te veel drink nie. Ek weet nie of dit heeltemal 'n goeie idee is nie."

Hy is nie alleen in sy bekommernis nie. Die restaurante laat u veral nie brouery's uit u motor koop nie. Die kettings bedien nie alkohol by hul aandrywers nie. Die meerderheid state het wette wat oop houers alkohol, soos bierblikke of wynbottels, in motors verbied.

Die groep vir voorstanders teen dronkbestuur, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, het gesê dat hy toevoeging van alkohol aan kitskos-spyskaarte monitor en dat hy aandag skenk aan oorbediening, die verhoogde beskikbaarheid van alkohol en die gemengde boodskappe wat dit aan minderjariges stuur.

'Ons gaan dit baie fyn dophou', het die nasionale president van MADD, Colleen Sheehey-Church, gesê. "MADD is nie teen die verantwoordelike verkoop van alkohol aan volwassenes nie. Die sleutelwoorde is verantwoordelik en alkohol en volwassenes. Ons bekommernis is die veiligheid van die publiek sodra mense die restaurante verlaat."

Op sy beurt het Taco Bell gesê as mense na een van die restaurante gaan wat alkohol bedien, gaan dit oor mense wat saam ontspan, nie in- en uitzoom nie.

"Dit is gewoonlik 'n sosiale geleentheid, 'n groep vriende wat bymekaar kom vir aandete of na 'n aand uit. Kliënte is geneig om 'n bietjie meer te kuier. Hulle wil kos en alkohol deel. Niks gaan beter met taco's nie," het Rob Poetsch, woordvoerder, gesê.

Die grootste kommer is oor die bediening van alkohol op plekke waar jong mense gewild is

'Hoe meer alkohol beskikbaar is, hoe meer mense sal drink en hoe meer waarskynlik dat u meer probleme sal sien,' het mede -professor David Jernigan, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, gesê. 'Dit is nie soos om slaaie by hul spyskaarte te voeg nie.'

Hy noem dronkbestuur, geweld, selfmoord en alkoholisme en is bekommerd oor die jongste kliënte van die kettings.

"Dit is gesinsgerigte restaurante. Hulle is baie gewild onder kinders. Die idee van kitskoswinkels wat alkohol bedien, is 'n boodskap dat alkohol oral geskik is. Ons praat hier van 'n baie spesiale produk. Ons praat nie oor melk. Ons praat nie van lemoensap nie. Ons praat oor 88,000 sterftes in die VSA "

Maar nie almal sê outomaties 'cheers' vir die skuif na drank nie. Franchisehouers moet bereid wees om die plaaslike drankwette te navigeer wat alles bepaal, van die tyd dat alkohol bedien word tot die bedieners se ouderdomme tot die minimum voedselverkope.

Vir kettings met winkels in die onderneming, soos Chipotle, ondersoek 'n span die plaaslike regulasies vir elke plek om te bepaal of dit die moeite werd is. Ongeveer 50% van sy ongeveer 2 300 Amerikaanse restaurante bedien alkohol. Nie een is byvoorbeeld in New Jersey nie, want dit is duur om 'n lisensie daar te kry.

As die bevrore margarita -toets van Chipotle (dit het 'n tradisionele margarita in 2013 bekendgestel) 'n sukses is, kan dit teen die einde van die jaar landwyd verkoop word, volgens Mark Crumpacker, bemarkingshoof.

Terwyl sommige kettings alkohol soek, trek sommige terug. Burger King het eens in die Verenigde State ses Whopper Bars gehad. Nou is daar slegs drie bierbedieningsplekke-twee in Florida en een in Missouri. Die maatskappy wou nie sê waarom dit nie Whopper Bars toevoeg nie.

'Dit is nie 'n platform wat ons groei nie,' sê Alex Macedo, president van Burger King Noord -Amerika.

Taco Bell beplan om ongeveer 150 nuwe plekke in die Verenigde State te open wat bier en bevrore mengeldrankies met tequila, rum, vodka en whisky sal bedien. En Pizza Hut, wat bier en wyn by ongeveer 3 500 van sy sitrestaurante bedien, gaan nog 200 by die spyskaarte voeg. Chipotle toets 'n bevrore weergawe van sy margarita, terwyl Shake Shack, met ShackMeister Ale en rooi en witwyn het 'n beperkte tydswyn aangebied om die terugkeer van die NBC TV-program "Will & amp Grace" te merk.

'Dit veroorsaak 'n bietjie gons-in beide sin van die woord', sê Aaron Allen, 'n wêreldwye restaurantkonsultant in Orlando. "Baie drankies met alkohol sal $ 3- $ 8 kaartjiepryse hê, afhangende van die promosiepryse. Voeg 'n paar daarvan by en jy verhoog die tjekgemiddeld.

Studie na studie toon dat 'n bietjie alkohol nie so erg vir jou is nie. Angeli Kakade (@angelikakade) het die storie.

Om 'n paar hooch te bereik, help ook kitskos en vinnig-toevallige kettings, wat die meeste van hul sake tydens ontbyt en middagete doen, om meer aandete te kry.

"Hulle probeer al jare om mense in die nag te laat inkom. Russo. "Dit is geensins 'n groot geldmaker nie. As hulle 'n bietjie bekostigbaar (alkohol) kan maak, wie weet. Dit kan wees."

In 2016 was drank verantwoordelik vir 'n halwe persent van die verkope, oftewel $ 1,4 miljard, in kitskosrestaurante en ander kettings waar kliënte by 'n toonbank bestel, soos pizzawinkels, volgens Technomic, 'n konsultantfirma in Chicago wat die neigings van die voedselbedryf volg. .

Jose Juarez het 'n paar ShackMeister Ale geniet met sy worsbroodjie -middagete die afgelope middag by Shake Shake in Madison Square Park in New York. Hy het gesê dat hy verbaas was om bier op die spyskaart te sien, maar hy betaal graag $ 5,79 vir die plastiekbeker van 16 gram.

"I was craving a beer and I got it," said the 34-year-old animator, visiting from San Jose, Calif., but he also wondered if the traditionally kid-friendly environment of any fast food restaurant, was the best place to imbibe. "It's a family place. You don't want a guy who drinks to much. I don't know if it's completely a good idea."

He's not alone in his concern. Notably, the restaurants won't let you buy brewskis from your car. The chains don't serve alcohol at their drive-thrus. The majority of states have laws that ban open containers of alcohol, like beer cans or wine bottles, in cars.

Anti-drunk driving advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving said it's monitoring the addition of alcohol to fast-food menus and that it's paying attention to overserving, the increased availability of alcohol and the mixed messages it sends to minors.

"We're going to watch it very closely," said MADD national president Colleen Sheehey-Church. "MADD is not against the responsible sale of alcohol to adults. The key words are responsible and alcohol and adults. Our concern is the public's safety once people leave the restaurants."

For its part, Taco Bell said when people go to one of the restaurants that serve alcohol, it's about people relaxing together, not zooming in and out.

"It's usually a social occasion, a group of friends coming together for dinner or after a night out. Customers tend to hang out a little bit more. They want shareable food and alcohol. Nothing goes better with tacos," said spokesman Rob Poetsch.

The greatest concern is about serving alcohol in places that tend to be popular with younger people

"The more available alcohol is, the more people will drink and the more likely it is you’ll see more problems," said Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health associate professor David Jernigan. "It’s not like adding salads to their menus."

He cited drunk driving, violence, suicide and alcoholism and worried about the chains' youngest customers.

"These are family-oriented restaurants. They’re really popular with kids. The idea of fast-food outlets serving alcohol is a message that alcohol is appropriate everywhere. We're talking about a very special product here. We’re not talking about milk. We're not talking about orange juice. We’re talking about 88,000 deaths in the U.S."

But not everyone automatically says "cheers" to the move to booze. Franchisees have to be willing to navigate local liquor laws that determine everything from the time alcohol may be served to servers' ages to food-sales minimums.

For chains with company-owned stores, like Chipotle, a team examines local regulations for each location to determine if it's worth it. About 50% of its approximately 2,300 U.S. restaurants serve alcohol. None are in New Jersey, for example, because getting a license there is expensive.

If Chipotle's frozen margarita test (it introduced a traditional margarita in 2013) is a success, it could be sold nationwide by the end of the year, according to chief marketing officer Mark Crumpacker.

While some chains are reaching for alcohol some are pulling back. Burger King once had six Whopper Bars in the United States. Now, there are only three beer-serving locations — two in Florida and one in Missouri. The company declined to say why it's not adding Whopper Bars.

"It's not a platform we’re growing," said Alex Macedo, president of Burger King North America.


Fast-food chains like Taco Bell, Chipotle and Shake Shack use alcohol to attract crowds

Apparently, the fast-food industry needs a stiff drink.

An increasing number of chain restaurants, such as Taco Bell and Chipotle Mexican Grill, are serving alcohol to lure in new customers who might otherwise go elsewhere to get beer, wine or cocktails.

In the competitive world of fast food, restaurants need an advantage. In the year ending in September, the chains saw no increase in customer traffic, according to the research firm NPD Group. Tacking on alcoholic beverages to an order is a way to drive up sales. Mixed drinks have a markup of as much as 90% and beer, 25%, according to restaurant consultant John Gordon of the Pacific Management Consulting Group.

Taco Bell plans to open approximately 150 new locations across the United States that will serve beer and frozen mixed drinks featuring tequila, rum, vodka and whiskey. And Pizza Hut, which serves beer and wine at approximately 3,500 of its sit-down restaurants, is set to add alcohol to the menus at another 200. Chipotle is market-testing a frozen version of its margarita, while Shake Shack, which features ShackMeister Ale and red and white wine, offered a limited-time wine shake to mark the return of the NBC TV show "Will & Grace."

"It creates a little bit of buzz – in both senses of the word," said Aaron Allen, an Orlando-based global restaurant consultant. "A lot of beverages with alcohol will have $3-$8 ticket prices, depending on their promotional pricing. Add a few of those on and you increase the check average. You can drive revenue without having to drive traffic."

Study after study shows that a little alcohol isn’t all that bad for you. Angeli Kakade (@angelikakade) has the story.

Reaching for some hooch also helps fast-food and fast-casual chains, which tend to do most of their business at breakfast and lunch, to score more dinnertime action.

"They've been trying for years to get people to come in at night. . You're paying rent for that restaurant all day, utilities. You might as well draw as much traffic as you can," said Edward Jones restaurant analyst Jack Russo. "It’s not a huge money-maker by any means. If they can (make alcohol) somewhat affordable, who knows. It might be."

In 2016, booze accounted for half a percent of sales, or $1.4 billion, at fast-food restaurants and other chains where customers order at a counter, like pizza stores, according to Technomic, a Chicago-based consulting firm that tracks food industry trends.

Jose Juarez enjoyed some ShackMeister Ale with his hot dog lunch on a recent afternoon at Shake Shake in New York City's Madison Square Park. He said he was surprised to see beer on the menu, but happy to pay $5.79 for the 16-ounce plastic cup.

"It's a family place. You don't want a guy who drinks to much. I don't know if it's completely a good idea."

He's not alone in his concern. Notably, the restaurants won't let you buy brewskis from your car. The chains don't serve alcohol at their drive-thrus. The majority of states have laws that ban open containers of alcohol, like beer cans or wine bottles, in cars.

Anti-drunk driving advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving said it's monitoring the addition of alcohol to fast-food menus and that it's paying attention to overserving, the increased availability of alcohol and the mixed messages it sends to minors.

"We're going to watch it very closely," said MADD national president Colleen Sheehey-Church. "MADD is not against the responsible sale of alcohol to adults. The key words are responsible and alcohol and adults. Our concern is the public's safety once people leave the restaurants."

For its part, Taco Bell said when people go to one of the restaurants that serve alcohol, it's about people relaxing together, not zooming in and out.

"It's usually a social occasion, a group of friends coming together for dinner or after a night out. Customers tend to hang out a little bit more. They want shareable food and alcohol. Nothing goes better with tacos," said spokesman Rob Poetsch.

The greatest concern is about serving alcohol in places that tend to be popular with younger people

"The more available alcohol is, the more people will drink and the more likely it is you’ll see more problems," said Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health associate professor David Jernigan. "It’s not like adding salads to their menus."

He cited drunk driving, violence, suicide and alcoholism and worried about the chains' youngest customers.

"These are family-oriented restaurants. They’re really popular with kids. The idea of fast-food outlets serving alcohol is a message that alcohol is appropriate everywhere. We're talking about a very special product here. We’re not talking about milk. We're not talking about orange juice. We’re talking about 88,000 deaths in the U.S."

But not everyone automatically says "cheers" to the move to booze. Franchisees have to be willing to navigate local liquor laws that determine everything from the time alcohol may be served to servers' ages to food-sales minimums.

For chains with company-owned stores, like Chipotle, a team examines local regulations for each location to determine if it's worth it. About 50% of its approximately 2,300 U.S. restaurants serve alcohol. None are in New Jersey, for example, because getting a license there is expensive.

If Chipotle's frozen margarita test (it introduced a traditional margarita in 2013) is a success, it could be sold nationwide by the end of the year, according to chief marketing officer Mark Crumpacker.

While some chains are reaching for alcohol some are pulling back. Burger King once had six Whopper Bars in the United States. Now, there are only three beer-serving locations — two in Florida and one in Missouri. The company declined to say why it's not adding Whopper Bars.

"It's not a platform we’re growing," said Alex Macedo, president of Burger King North America.
