With summer comes outdoor adventures, including outside dining and picnics. Help your customers have the best experience by offering the products to make their picnic complete.
Packing Food Safely
The essence of a picnic is portable food to help create an exceptional experience. Stocking products that make this process easy and enjoyable will create a positive experience for customers and boost sales for your operation.
Offer food containers that are stackable to optimize the space within the picnic basket. Rubbermaid currently has its Brilliance line of leak-proof stackable containers that can hold food safely. Another option is to offer customers bento boxes that interconnect and hold all different types of food in one container. ApolloBox offers a wide variety of bento boxes with various designs sure to appeal to all customers along with reusable utensils to match the box.
Drinks are also important for a picnic. Keeping drinks cold when it’s hot outside is a must. GSI Outdoors offers a wide variety of insulated water bottles with filters to keep water cold and fresh. Contigo also offers insulated water bottles with straws for convenience on the go and filters to keep water fresh.
A picnic basket is essential for any picnic affair. Whether it’s a simple wicker basket or a fully insulated cooler, having something that is easy to carry with the food inside is appealing to customers of all types.
Helping to keep food chilled and ready to eat, Yeti offers a wide tote with a shoulder strap for easy carrying. The insulated interior keeps food chilled for hours and the canvas exterior is durable and waterproof, making it a great option for the beach. For those looking for a more comfortable option, the RTIC Backpack cooler has adjustable straps to make carrying easy. Its large capacity means customers can take more food and drink with them without worrying about not having enough room. Finally, if customers are looking for a more traditional basket, Picnic at Ascot offers a wide range of wicker picnic baskets. Additionally, these baskets come with reusable tableware for customers to use right away.
Not all picnic blankets are created equal, but offering the best options to customers is always a top priority. Consider stocking the Victory Picnic Blanket by NEMO Equipment. This insulated blanket offers a rubber texture on one side to keep the blanket from sliding and a soft fleece side on the top for a comfortable area to sit. The corners are also made of a grommeted material, meaning the blanket can be staked down on windy days without fear of ruining the blanket. For a waterproof blanket that won’t stain, offer the Oceas Waterproof Fleece Blanket. This blanket rolls up for easy carrying and has a handle that can be attached to a belt loop or backpack to free up hands to help carry other items.
