Club Bulletin January 2016 11 www.theEDexpo.com Chill out — there's more! Jevo introduces the Jevo Chill As if the Jevo gelatin shot maker isn't enough to get club owners and operators excited, Jevo also offers the Jevo Chill. The Jevo Chill is a quick-chilled shot machine specifically designed to work with Jevo (it connects with Jevo; see this issue's cover). Unlike common liquor chilling machines, Jevo Chill dispenses a variety of spirits, prevents overpour and promotes at the point of decision, so you can replace other chilling machines and free up valuable space on your bar. The Jevo Chill features up to three different spirit choices at the same time, universal adapters to allow for any liquor bottle, multiple portion options for dispensing and easily connects to the main Jevo. "The Jevo and Jevo Chill can also produce daily tracking reports, so you know exactly what you sold of which gelatin shot or which liquor," says Jetton. "And with precise pour technology and a customizable dispensing temperature, chilled shots are now easier than ever and your pour cost is controlled!" "Jevo flavors range from more 'traditional' flavors (cherry, orange, watermelon) to more exotic cocktail flavors (margarita, piña colada, apple martini), to what we call 'dessert' shots (banana cream pie and birthday cake)." - Jetton "Jevo flavors range from more 'traditional' flavors (cherry, orange, watermelon) to more exotic cocktail flavors (margarita, piña colada, apple martini), to what we call 'dessert' shots (banana cream pie and birthday cake)," Jetton explains. "And with the ability to use vodka, rum, tequila, etc., you can expand your shot offerings as well. Jevo shots improve customer's experience by balancing flavor and spirit for the perfect combination. And the flavor variety (traditional, exotic cocktail, and dessert style) are suitable for all levels of palate sophistication." While the Jevo has a very small footprint behind your bar—it's only 16 inches wide by 19 inches high by 19 inches deep—its potential financial impact is much larger. In addition to the machine itself, the company sends an entire kit to maximize the profitability of Jevo gelatin shots in your club. "The starter kit which includes illuminated trays for serving the shots, promotional materials and a how-to kit for starting a successful gelatin shot program in your club," says Jetton. "The truth is, because the flavor pods are core to our business model, our success is very much tied to our clients' success. So it's in our best interest to make sure the product is working well out of the gate and long-term for every one of our clients. "We are not trying to sell a machine and go away, this is a long-term partnership where we are only successful if our clients are," adds Jetton. "That's why we added wifi to every unit; with Jevo always being connected, you are able to monitor usage and provide auto inventory control so our clients will never run out of pods. The always-connected feature also lets us know if there are any issues with Jevo likely before the account even knows." Partners in profit Jetton and the folks at Jevo want their clients to be successful. To this end, they've secured partnerships with two national beverage companies—Beam Suntory and Robust Energy—to offer upgraded Jevo programs for those who are interested. "We are really excited about our marketing relationship with Beam Suntory as their brands work really well with Jevo and their expertise in the industry simply brings a ton of value & credibility to the program" says Jetton. "The program is optional; however if the account chooses and wants to work with the Beam Suntory brands like Jim Beam, Pinnacle Vodka and Sauza Tequila, they will get, where legal, a starter kit of promotional materials and on-going promotional support to assist in the overall success of the program. The fact that a major spirit company like Beam Suntory is on board with us says a lot about Jevo and the value it brings to accounts." In addition, Jevo has created a unique partnership with Robust Energy drinks to provide multiple "Energy" Jevo flavor pods to its line up. The cocktail energy drink category has exploded, so it only makes sense to create Jevo energy flavor shots for this category. "Thanks to our partnership with Robust Energy, if a location wants to try Robust, we'll give that club 25 free Jevo energy pods powered by Robust which produces on average $1250.00 in revenue for our clients," says Jetton. "Robust is also including their new bag in box energy drink mix, which represents approximately 10 cases of energy drinks as part of the program. It's a win-win!"
