Profit From The Energy Drink Trend With A Franchise Business
In the last few years, popular culture has seen a number of trend shifts, and one of the most evident is a new fascination with energy drinks. Where once Coke and coffee were champions of the energizing beverage world, major names like Red Bull and Monster have climbed to the throne of the beverage kingdom, producing greater energy boosts and more impressive fanfare than either sodas or coffee ever did. Between 2001 and 2007, there was a 516% growth in energy-drink sales, and today, 35% of teens and 45% of young adults drink an energy drink on a daily basis. Studies indicate that today energy drinks actually outsell soft drinks 2 to 1, proving to be hands-down the most profitable and fastest-growing sector of the $100bil beverage industry. But with giants already in the industry, a newcomer to the market has to ask what kind of business opportunities are actually left.
As it is, there are energy drink opportunities for the hopeful businessperson, and those opportunities are franchises. If you want to profit from the growing energy drink trend, here are a few franchise business options that can get you into this still-growing industry.
Entech USA Vending Entech USA Vending is truly an "energy drink" home based business franchise, because it’s the only one that gives franchisees direct access to the biggest names in today’s energy drink industry. Displaying product names like Red Bull, Rockstar, Monster, and Sobe, Entech USA Vending machines are the only real energy drink vending machines in the United States, and the profits reflect that. Compared to a soft drink machine that can only make about $1 per can or bottle of soda, the revenues from an energy drink machine are startling: capable of hitting $2.50 per can. And with protected territories, franchisees are able to capitalize on the public’s thirst for energy without worrying about interference from other franchisees with the same machine.
Revive Energy Vending This franchise opportunity is not exactly your stereotypical energy drink; in fact, it isn’t even a drink. Rather, this health-conscious, energy-boosting product is a mint: and quite a mint it is, packing the power of a full can of any energy drink, as well as a full serving of fruit. Loaded with guarana-caffeine, green tea, ginseng, acai, gogi, and mangosteen, it walks the fine line between energizing and healthy, and with a 285% markup on each mint, each sale proves to be energizing and healthy for the franchisee’s wallet as well. Aside from the business model, the franchisor also provides location assistance for each home business franchisee, helping them find the best places possible for each machine, and with only a limited number of distributorships allowed in any given area, those locations will prove to be as profitable as they can be.
American Vending Systems Taking a slightly different approach to the energy drink industry, American Vending Sysytems work from home franchisees distribute machines that sell Mad Dog Energy Shots: 2-ounce canisters of energy composed of a vitamins, enzymes, natural dietary supplements, and caffeine equivalent to that of a cup of drip coffee. The energy boost that it produces takes effect in only 5 minutes, lasts for 6 hours, and ends without the standard energy crash that generally follows any other energizing product. Each vending machine holds 120 canisters divided into 4 30-canister segments. And with every canister costing the consumer between $2 and $6 as the owner determines, that 120 canisters comes out to a whopping income even after it empties only once.
There aren’t many ways for the average person to get in on the profit associated with the energy drink business, but there are a few if you keep your eyes peeled. The wave of this trend is still cresting, so there remains time to purchase a franchise in the market, and any one of these will serve you well.
