The Perfect Pairing: DRNK coffee + tea and QWENCH juice bar
Think of it as a kind of healthy food and beverage nirvana. That’s what upstart brand DRNK coffee + tea and sister brand QWENCH juice bar offer franchisees and consumers. Each is a successful operation on its own but when you put both concepts together under one roof, it simply doesn’t get any better than that. Whether it’s a coffee drink, a juice smoothie, or any of the dozens of other menu choices, all ingredients at DRNK and QWENCH are always fresh, exceptionally crafted, and made to order in-house each day.
With both brands under the same roof, DRNK coffee + tea offers customers premium coffees and teas, ice blended drinks, breakfast items, sandwiches, and salads, while QWENCH juice bar brings juices, açaí bowls, a superfood food program, fruit and veggie shots, and more to the table.
“No other concept in this space offers two brands, on-trend and complementary to each other the way we’ve presented it. It’s a perfect pairing that maximizes operator efficiency per square foot,” says Mitch Baker, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for DRNK and QWENCH. He says that co-branding the two concepts is the perfect sweet spot because it targets a variety of customer day parts. In addition, the pairing concept solves the challenge operators face with seasonality; QWENCH performs better in warmer weather and DRNK performs better in colder weather, thus making the combo concept weatherproof.
