Pre-Party Frozen/Craft Beers - Microbrewery Franchise

An exciting new microbrewery franchise is launching in Costa Rica and is set to take franchise partners on to success.


A drink franchise to quench all thirsts:

The Owners thirst for profits: As sole providers, we control the production and delivery of our limited and low-cost inventory of franchise branded products. The use of on-line POS & robust video documentation, will result in the measurement of three key aspects. One, tight inventory control, minimizing theft and shrinkage. Two, accurately gage sales productivity of each minimum wage but sales commission incentivized worker. And finally, number Three, employee adherence to Pre-Party’s sales generating policies and protocols, of proven sales techniques.

The Sales Associates thirst for easy money: Easy, be bilingual & of engaging personality clearly manifesting “the more I sell the more I make” and “I'm responsible for sales” Successful part time trial employees can become a full-time sales associate, through a demonstrated thirst for making sales.

The Clients actual thirst: Pre-Party associates will actively sell Frozen Daiquiri like Frozen fruit drinks and Craft Beers to clients, who didn’t even know they were that thirsty! Pre-party drinks are accessibly priced at our eye-catching establishments at multiple beach locations!

Pre-Party Frozen/Craft Beers

An improved franchise business model.

There is a famously successful frozen daiquiri franchise that was developed out of a small start-up in New Orlins La in the early 1980’s, then exploded into Florida and is now serving over 25 million frozen daiquiris per year. Many of these locations serve exclusively, frozen daiquiris and nothing else. This is the successful model we are using, but with a thirst-quenching twist of adding craft beer by the glass or liter to-go, as a second popular drink option to Pre-Party frozens!

So rather than buying into an existing big-name franchise, we simply open three Pre-Party Frozens & Craft Beer stores with direct investment in the finest; equipment, rental-location and people and protocols. All the preparation and investment deserve a sustained, marketing push for the Pre-Party brand establishment and is a notable first year start-up cost line item of merit!

Because its Costa Rica we have sourced locally available fruit concentrates and will make a big deal out of the 100% organic CR fruit language in sales advertising to kids and people who don’t drink. For those wanting alcohol infused frozen, Pre-Party baristas will literally push pump a shot of rum or vodka, into the cup resulting in a hard frozen, at a per shot extra charge!

Adding our own branded Pre-Party craft beer by the glass” and in to-go liter bottles, is an obvious improvement over the single product approach used by the big US franchise selling only frozen daquiris. Pre-Party Frozens and craft beer, targets three markets: kids and non-alcohol drinkers, along with the hard Frozens, and craft beer enthusiast. All three products available in multiple sizes at a “Tico” price point attracting a broad demographic of customers.

Build and open three locations simultaneously, then EXPLODE IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITH CONTRACTED WEB INFLUENCERS and BOOM we have a recognizable PRE-PARTY brand!

The Brewery backing up Pre-Party franchises

Lake Arenal Brewery is Costa Rica's oldest Craft Brewery as well as the only brewery using its own on-site spring water, 100% solar photovoltaic electricity production, evacuated tube solar hot water and in-house trained local staff. Lab efficiently and consistently produces beer at a such a low per keg cost, as to be on-par with the low production cost of vastly larger breweries.

LAB produces eight of the most popular styles of traditional ale beers in kegs, that are sold to multiple bars in: San Jose the capital, Nosara beach, Jaco beach La Fortuna and other towns. Currently our one liter to-go bottles, are only available at the brewery, keg production is running at an annual average of 40% capacity at 240 5g kegs per month. LAB is set to expand, easily doubling our existing monthly 600 5g keg capacity, with the inexpensive purchase of 4 more 10-barrel fermentation tanks.

While Craft Beer sells, it is not a stand-alone product, it must be paired with food or offered in a liquor store, neither of which is new or exciting, and limits beer sales to wholesale pricing.
