Beverage Bags allows beverage brands and restaurant chains to provide their customers with convenient options for purchasing group or family sizes beverages. Beverage Bags are a unique and practical alternative to Plastic Jugs because they are shipped/stored flat - which saves valuable backhouse storage space while creating convenience for guests. RP & Associates has received positive feedback from brands across the country and is now offering custom branded Beverage Bags to all clients.
1 Gallon and 1/2 Gallon Beverages have become a popular option to bundle with family meals, catering, to-go orders, and for delivery, because multiple cups can be cumbersome to handle and a gallon bag hold 6 to 8 servings. Plastic Jugs were previously the only option for providing customers with 1 Gallon or 1/2 Gallon beverages but they are bulky, making them difficult to store and expensive to ship; operators had to decide between giving-up valuable storage space for plastic jugs, or miss out on high margin beverage sales. Beverage Bags allow operators to sell 1 Gallon and 1/2 Gallon Beverages to all their customers without giving-up storage space since more than 200 Beverage Bags fit in the same space as just 12 Plastic Jugs. Beverage Bags can be branded with full-color artwork, include a tamper-evident cap, and work with slushies, carbonated, and non-carbonated beverages.
Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen was one of the first brands to switch to Beverage Bags and offers its customers 1 Gallon and 1/2 Gallon of Sweet Tea, Lemonade, or Fruit Punch for $4-5. Red Robin offers its customers gallons of various lemonades from between $9 to $13 per gallon, and Benihana offers 1/2 Gallons of its tea and lemonade for $11 to $14. Jack's sells 1/2 Gallons of its tea, lemonade, and iced coffee from $3 to $10, while Krystal Company offers its customers 1/2 Gallons of any beverages (carbonated and non-carbonated) starting at $3.
Beverage Bags are great for offering carbonated and non-carbonated beverages to your customers but it works with other types of drinks as well. Rutters opted to use a version of the bag with an extra-large opening that allows them to fill and sell 1 Gallon of Adult Slushies from their convenience stores. During the summer, Fat Tuesdays and the Saints partnered to launch their Gallon to Go Slushie and used a custom shaped version of the bag to launch their program; you can see the commercial they made by clicking here.
As takeout, catering, and delivery segments continue to grow, Beverage Bags are the perfect compliment to drive sales and create convenience for customers. Contact us today to get a Beverage Bag with custom artwork for your brand.

Adult Slushie Party Bags are available at Rutter's stores!
After Daiqruiris and the New Orleans Saints launched their "Gallon to Geaux" Bags, the convenience store chain Rutter's just recently announced the launch of their brand new "Be The Party" Bags which will not only save space and reduce storage costs but will also increase beverage sales as well as brand awareness.
The York-based convenience store chain ran a successful test of adult slushies (various flavors such as Mt Dew combined with alcohol) in fall 2018 and began a full roll out to all 75 existing beer and wine locations this spring. Rutter's decided to go with our generic Beverage Bags, but with a larger opening, making it much easier to pour, as well as to fill. After announcing this on their social media handles, the feedback was nothing but positive as now customers will be able to simply pick up a gallon of their favorite adult slushie and bring it to any event ice cold!
