Coffee Shops, Bars, Restaurants & Event Planners
Make money while you support your community! As a BizBuzz™ Partner, you’ll gain access to the proprietary BizBuzz™ Lemonade Coffee Recipe in exchange for donating $1/serving to the BizGym Foundation. Just take your highest drink price and add a buck ~ you can’t lose money!
- No-Loss Business Model. YOU CANNOT LOSE SALES OR PROFITABILITY WITH THIS PROGRAM. Just price BizBuzz™ Drinks at a $1 premium over your highest drink price on your menu. This protects your profitability by keeping the donation amount over and above any existing sales. In fact, you’ll most likely find that you’re improving beverage sales overall by adding BizBuzz to your line up.
- Supports Premium Pricing. The recipe presents as gourmet. It’s interesting and begs to be tasted. It delights and out performs expectations. It supports a good cause. And its so satisfying that repeat business is guaranteed. We therefore recommend a 10oz serving for $5-6/serving, but we receive no objections for 8oz servings. Refills at $4 might make sense as these go down really fast and many come back looking for more.
- Cups in 10-30 Seconds. BizBuzz uses common coffee shop ingredients and depending upon server and preparation, cups in just seconds.
- Low Food Cost (less than 10%). Ingredients for a 10oz serving typically break down as follows:
- Vanilla Syrup 5.8¢
- Half & Half 9.4¢
- Tonic Water 14.6¢
- Coffee 9¢
- Lemon Juice 7.6¢
- Lemon Twist 3¢
TOTAL COST: 49.4¢/serving
- Free Promotional Support for BizBuzz Partners: We promote BizBuzz Partners as “available at” locations through our website, social media and news releases. We also provide free window & case decals, table tents and stickers that show you support a worthy cause.
Cocktails Anyone? BizBuzz™ Night
We’ve also perfected a cocktail version of BizBuzz. It’s a great way to get amped for a fun evening out. Margins for the cocktail version are even better than the day recipe: 90¢ food cost (vodka) per 6-8oz serving with a suggested price of $7-12/serving depending upon serving context.
About the BizBuzz™ Recipe
BizBuzz™ Lemonade Coffee was created September 19, 2016 as a high-octane startup drink for entrepreneurs. Says Steve Sue, BizGym Foundation Chairman and Chief Lemon Head at Lemonade Alley, “I created this drink to fuel entrepreneurial thinking and raise funds for Lemonade Alley. That meant lemonade for sure and probably coffee too. The result is a drink that tells the story of entrepreneurship.” For more, see the Official BizBuzz Website »
Says Steve, “Combining common things in uncommon ways demonstrates the beauty of innovation. Many turn their noses up at idea of lemonade and coffee. But innovation seeks to disrupt and change people’s thinking. I see a win in this recipe as newbies quickly drain glasses, exclaim approvals and ask where they can get it again.”
So, baristas and mixologists, start your coffee makers and lets do some good together!
