Wine is a Big Business in the United States. According to Statista, a global business data platform, The United States is the leading global wine Consumer. Total retail value of wine sales in the US is 70 Billion USD in 2018 and growing, up from 61.80 billion USD in 2017.
While sales growth has technically slowed, the total market has doubled since 2013, with consumers buying wine at higher price points than ever. Americans want to be educated, drink healthier options and look sophisticated while doing so. We call it the Wine effect.
Average wine consumption per US resident was 2.95 gallons in 2018, up from 2.34 gallons in 2005 and yes that’s correct, the United States drinks more wine than any other country in the world. Are you still waiting for a sign?
Our Wines: Open Container produces its own private labeled wines made from hand-selected grapes in our estate vineyards, offering a wide variety from California cabernet to moscato, to sparkling wines. Yet we have also included, off the beaten path, ancient varietal masterpieces such as Areni, voskehat, and kangoun.
Our Frozen Wine Suavé Cocktails: an Open Container specialty blended with our wine, that’s exactly what people need on a Florida day.
Craft Beer: We didn’t forget about beer lovers! We will work with Craft breweries in your local Open Container designated area to offer a more exclusive tailored tasting experience.
Besides being passionate about wine, there are some skills and experiences that will give you an advantage starting out. For instance, the ideal franchise owner of Open Container should have prior management experience or a store owner dedicated to operational excellence and able to build a high performing team. Individuals who have worked in the food or customer service industry will have a better understanding of the foundation of what it takes to run a restaurant or a Bar. Moreover franchisees should be patient and willing to follow the operations plan outlined by the corporate.
Being part of Open Container is an Active ownership. We are looking for active and dedicated investors or operating partners who are willing to grow and learn. The ideal franchisee will be open to learning accounting, team building, customer service, management and leadership. An overall “learning mindset” will be beneficial to anyone getting into the franchise game. Most importantly, the ideal franchise candidate must be materially invested in the success of the business operation. With that being said, to generate profit and become sustainable, we are looking for the ideal franchise candidate who is willing to go above and beyond the usual open container methods, to drink outside the box!
Once the ideal franchisee will be able to get past the initial learning curve, opening a franchise with Open Container will guarantee to provide a comfortable living with the opportunity to grow with the company. Having a brand like Open Container will keep you well equipped with marketing and help you navigate changes in consumer taste preferences. Historically, the company has done well embracing changes in technology and consumer taste.
