Here's Why Operators Love SPORTea®

1) Uniqueness: SPORTea® differentiates your foodservice facility the same way a special decor, or a well-designed menu offering does. Now your iced tea offering can be a reason for customers to choose your restaurant over another! (See SPORTea® attributes on the right side of this page)

2) Save Money: SPORTea® consumers (96%) drink it without adding condiments (lemon, sugar, artificial sweeteners). Condiments cost 9-11¢ per glass with a black tea offering because 92% of all iced tea drinkers add condiments. So, if you get your black tea for 2¢ tea cost plus condiment cost of 9-11¢ is still 11-13¢ per glass served vs. 8¢ per glass served for SPORTea®!

3) Sell more/More profits: 8 out of 10 consumers like the taste of SPORTea®, 7 out of 10 consumers like black tea (varies a bit by brand); 4 to 5 out of 10 consumers like herb iced tea (varies by flavor and brand)... so you will sell more SPORTea® long term.

4) Broader consumer appeal/more profits:
Due to attributes like no calories and no artificial sweeteners, SPORTea®’s nutritious make up, and it’s energizing and stress fighting qualities, while at the same time being a decaff equivalent offering... more consumers are attracted to this beverage and therefore to the iced tea category than with a regular black tea offering. Thus, more glass sales of your iced tea which is traditionally one of the most profitable areas of the restaurant.

5) Environmentally Conscious: All natural SPORTea® comes packaged in recycled packaging, provides positive nutritional attributes, and a % of every profit dollar earned by UPP, Inc. is committed to Clean Air Environmental programs worldwide.

6) Add-on-sales: SPORTea® is an interesting product and can be a subject for positive dialogue between your wait staff and your customers. A good dialogue between staff and customers has been shown to be a key factor for add-on-sales in foodservice environments.

7) Repeat Business: A special glass of iced tea can be as good a reason to choose a particular restaurant for lunch as a great salad, a good burger, or an exotic alcoholic beverage. SPORTea® customers do get committed to the product, that is good for the restaurant! Look what consumer commitment to their french fries did for McDonald’s?

8) The Best Competitive Beverage:          
SPORTea® is favored by many five star restaurants simply because it has no aftertaste  – they claim SPORTea® is the only beverage that is clean to the pallet, other than water and they do not make money on water, right!?!          

SPORTea® will let your foods tastes come through and not cloud the pallet like the tannic in black teas, the flavors in herb teas, the sugars in sodas, etc.  SPORTea® is clean, thirst quenching, refreshing... and leaves no aftertaste!

9) Alternative Beverage: SPORTea® can also be offered to your customers who would prefer to be energized without tons of caffiene because SPORTea® is a decaff equivalent and stil energizes customers. You attract more customers to your iced tea category... more sales... more profits!

Here's Why Customers Love SPORTea®

1) Special Taste: Bold, Zippy, Citrus Sweet flavor that 8 out of 10 people like... Not just another Iced tea!
