2015 Best Selling Hotel Pantry Products: Beverages

Do you ever walk into your hotel pantry and shake your head, because you know it could be better, but you don’t know how to make it happen? One of the quickest, easiest improvements you can make to your store to improve both revenue and guest experience, is to stay on top of the trends and the favorites - and make sure you are carrying the right products in the right sizes that make guests happy! Because Happy Guests = Increased Sales.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of info out there on what sells well nationally, what the newest trends are, or what sizes guests prefer when purchasing chips, waters, candy bars. So GM’s are left guessing what to buy and if it will sell - which results in a lot of overstock, expired product, and unsatisfied guests who need something you don’t carry.

Hotel Pantry Beverages

Impulsify’s Retail Management System, ImpulsePoint, was used in over 300 hotel pantries and gift shops to conduct over 700,000 retail transactions in 2015. We stored a ton of product performance data for a few reasons:

  1. We are total hotel retail geeks who genuinely get excited about how many bags of Sour Patch Kids were sold in Select Service hotel last year

  2. We travel a lot and if we can improve the product offering at hotels nationwide, chances are good we will benefit from it one late night when we have a craving for Sour Patch Kids.

  3. We truly love this stuff, and we want to help hotels succeed at retail.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the top sellers by category to help you fine tune your assortment based on actual sales data. If you need a complete list all at once because you are going through a renovation, grand opening, or just an overhaul of your retail efforts for 2016, give us a call at 888-306-3252 or email info@impulsifyinc.com. We’re happy to help!

So without further ado… Here are the Best Sellers in the Beverage Category for 2015.

Have at it. Use it. And, in the meantime, don’t forget the Sour Patch…please.
