'One of our main goals was to get a draft beer in the hands of the consumer at the fastest rate possible. We are more than happy to fill this need for the Five Guys customer.' - CEO Josh Springer
Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
GrinOn Industries has announced that its hands-free beer dispensing system will now be implemented in the Savannah, Georgia Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurants starting with the Whitemarsh Island location this summer. The Bottoms Up inventors have decided to team up with Five Guys in order to meet their burger lovers’ demand for draft beer.
“Our customers seemed to have a preference for draft beer,” said Chris Smith, Five Guys Burgers and Fries franchisee of coastal Georgia and South Carolina. “I had to come up with a solution that could meet customer demands, could be easy for employees to use, and improve efficiency. Then I came across Bottoms Up and thought it was the perfect system to solve our problem. If it is very successful, I could see it being made available to all franchisees.” The relationship creates a huge potential for growth, as Five Guys is currently one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the nation.
This will be the first time Five Guys will have draft beer in their restaurants, and GrinOn Industries CEO, Josh Springer, could not be more excited for this opportunity. "This is exactly the kind of partnership we want to establish,” said Springer. “One of our main goals was to get a draft beer in the hands of the consumer at the fastest rate possible. We are more than happy to fill this need for the Five Guys customer.”
Bottoms Up Draft Beer Dispensing System® is an automated, hands-free system that increases throughput, efficiency, and advertising/branding opportunities for restaurants, bars, pubs, etc. With the distinguishing feature being it’s hands-free method of beer filling up through the bottom of the cup, Bottoms Up fills up at a rate of up to nine times that of traditional beer taps. Bottoms Up was specifically designed to increase profitability for owners and this is evident in every aspect of the system as well as in the company’s rapid expansion in the North American market.
The Bottoms Up pilot will begin this summer in the coastal Savannah, GA Five Guys restaurants. Depending on the success of the draft beer in the restaurants, it will then quickly expand to South Carolina. Although this is a pilot, both parties believe that Bottoms Up has found a new home, and a mutually beneficial relationship with Five Guys Burgers & Fries.
