Sweet-talk your customers with delicious holiday drinks

‘Tis the season for holiday drinks and LTOs. If your restaurant is looking for a way to boost guest cheques and stand out from the crowd, you can hit that sweet spot with a new roster of hot and cold beverages.

The specialty coffee industry alone brings in more than $12 billion in annual sales and is predicted to grow another 11.6 per cent by 2030, so delicious drinks are in demand.

Whether you’re serving fancy coffee, giving your hot chocolate an upgrade, or creating cold treats, ingredients matter. Treat your guests to the best! Hershey’s trusted brand offers elevated products with consistent quality that your customers know and love, like Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and Reese’s Peanut Butter Sauce.

Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup is velvety, decadent, and indulgent, adding a rich taste and chocolatey sweetness to any of your beverages. Create concoctions like a signature hot cocoas and lattés or drizzle on top for dressed up iced drinks with a mocha twist.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Sauce enhances your menu items with its rich flavour and texture. Add it to your iced coffee for a unique take on a cold classic or level up your hot beverages with its smooth peanut buttery goodness. It also makes a delicious topping for lattés, milkshakes, and more.

85 per cent of consumers say that they will return to a restaurant if they enjoy an LTO, so use this holiday season to get attention and capture that crowd with an innovative drink menu.

Looking to draw in a younger demographic? According to Technomic, 20 per cent of Gen Z and millennials (aged 18 to 34) are likely to indulge in iced or blended specialty coffee, so don’t skip cold drinks on your menu this season.

Your customers are looking for variety and new holiday drinks to satisfy their sweet cravings. Incorporate Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and Reese’s Peanut Butter Sauce in your holiday LTOs to elevate your guest experience, drive sales, and encourage guests to return to your restaurant.
