Six Beverage Ideas To Borrow From Top Global Chains

Global Chains have the opportunity to test their beverages around the world, gathering opinions from different preferences. Starbucks is known for using beverages that garner international success and adding them to their American menus. Below are 6 beverage ideas to borrow from some global chains.

  1. KFC’s Yuzu Tea Sparkler
    1. Replacing Lemons with Yuzu gives this drink the same citrus but a more prominent kick of tartness
  2. Dunkin’ Donuts’ Iced Chicha Fruit Coolatta
    1. This drink boasts a unique purple tint which may attract an audience that loves nontraditional colored food/beverages.
  3. Baskin-Robbins’ Papaya Pineapple Thick Shake
    1. Papaya will bring an exotic flavor to a shake complementing the sweetness of pineapple
  4. McDonald’s Belgian Chocolate Honeycomb Iced Frappe
    1. Mmmm this blend of chocolate and honey is super sweet and will definitely intrique those with a sweet tooth.
  5. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Avocado Coffee
    1. Avocados have become something that consumers are comfortable seeing, so they’ll be more open to trying this type of coffee.
  6. Starbucks Fruit Jelly Yogurt Frappuccino
    1. Now this is the most unique beverage of the 6. The texture of jelly will differentiate but more than likely not disappoint.

We’re not suggesting you steal these exact drinks, but we are suggesting you take a look at these innovations to possibly alter your beverage offerings.
