From the industry, for the industry…
Stran Promotional Solutions began working in the beverage industry back in 1996 with our client, Nantucket Nectars. At that time, Nantucket Nectars was one of the fastest growing beverage companies in the country. 20 years later, Stran continues to be a full service provider to our beverage industry clientele while incorporating best practices from other corporate verticals Stran services.
Realizing the beverage industry is a unique market, in 2010 Stran created a Beverage Division consisting of knowledgeable industry veterans who have over 100 years of combined experience within the trade and who fully understand the unique challenges, needs and trends of this industry. The results are proof positive allowing for a greater focus to be placed on this market space by providing innovative new products at the best price points, while continuing to provide the same high level of service that all Stran clients have come to expect. As the business evolved beyond the need for just product, so has the diversity of services that are now being offered to our customers. These services now encompass custom overseas manufacturing, displays, POP/POS, Dealer Incentive merchandise, new inventory management software, e-company online store platforms, kitting capabilities, and warehousing and distribution services.

Stran believes that there’s no better time to make that 1-1 connection between your brand and your customer than when they’re getting ready to enjoy your beverage. Whether they are at the neighborhood watering hole, tailgating at their favorite sporting event, or seeing their favorite band at the arena, on premise branding helps to influence the purchasing behaviors of your customers. Some on premise branding can be functional pieces such as barware, seating, mats, taps, clocks, and more. Other more decorative pieces may be utilized purely to create the atmosphere within an establishment such as signage or custom neon pieces. A third category of on premise branding is entertainment. This category includes bar games and other interactive pieces..
The fight for shelf space is a never ending battle for most beverage companies and their distributors. At Stran, our goal is to help you land, keep hold of, and grow your footprint at retail through the use of high-quality and innovative racks, shelf-talkers, displays, custom neon, and more. These pieces are an extension of your business, your brand and your messaging that can serve to educate, entertain, and keep your brand image top of mind. We look holistically at the off-premise channel and we work with your trade marketing teams to identify the best opportunities to gain store market share. We take early stage concepts and flush out the details. Once a campaign is built, we will source and/or build the necessary pieces to bring your original idea to life for all to see and experience.

As a result, Stran will make sure that theses VIP’s are representing your brand in the best light possible with on trend apparel pieces as they do their jobs and go about their daily lives.
