Lollicup USA hosted its second vendor open house session with a presentation by Kerry Foodservice Brands.
Nate Booth, regional sales manager for the brand, visited Lollicup USA in Chino to discuss DaVinci Gourmet®, Oregon Chai® and Big Train® consumable products.
With each of these brands, versatility and variety were stressed throughout the event.
The presentation kicked off with a discussion and demonstration of DaVinci Gourmet—a brand that specializes in the specialty coffee industry.
DaVinci uses the best ingredients possible to create syrups that perfectly pair with coffee beverages, Booth said. This allows for many business owners in the foodservice industry to enter the specialty coffee industry with ease.
DaVinci offers many options for enhancing the flavor of your beverages, including sweet syrups and sauces. These products are designed for both hot and cold drinks.
Flavored beverages add uniqueness and quality to beverages that might otherwise be bland. Adding flavor to beverages can increase profits by 10-40 percent, Booth said.
DaVinci also offers great concentrated smoothie mixes that are a great option for spring and summer menus. These mixes feature an authentic flavor.
Booth continued his presentation with Big Train powder mixes. The brand offers a variety of flavors for various applications. They can be mixed with juice, coffee, water, milk and just about any other tasty liquid.These mixes allow for perfectly blended treats; some of which instantly won the hearts of customers in attendance.
The session closed with a brief overview of delectable Oregon Chai concentrates and powders.
Chai is an extremely popular beverage in coffee shops, tea houses and cafes, Booth said. Like many of the other products presented at this session, this brand instantly sparked interest among customers at the event.
The 2017 vendor open house sessions will continue on next week with a presentation and demonstrations by Caffe D’Vita. Contact your sales representative for more information.
