McDonald’s promoting Ohio tourism through discounts printed on drink cups

by papercups - on May 1st 2013 - Comments Off on McDonald’s promoting Ohio tourism through discounts printed on drink cups

McDonald’s Corp. and Coca-Cola Co. are helping Ohio promote its tourist destinations.

The state’s TourismOhio office took the wraps off its Discover Ohio To Go partnership with almost 400 Ohio McDonald’s restaurants that will allow tourists to swap branded cups for discounts at an assortment of attractions.

Basically, consumers can buy a large soft drink or iced tea at a McDonald’s involved in the program, consume it, clean it and trade it in for a number of deals. Some incentives include up to $15 off an admission to Cedar Point amusement park or buy-one-get-one-free admission at the Columbus Museum of Art. The cups will be available at McDonald’s starting Monday through June 9, but redemption for most deals are good through the summer.

The list of McDonald’s restaurants taking part in the partnership and the available discounts and deals are here.

Pat Barker, interim tourism director, told me the state has discussed partnership ideas with McDonald’s for years before arriving at Discover Ohio to Go.

“For us, this was a good kick-off to the season,” she said. “Next year we hope to add more participants.”

The state routinely looks for partnerships with Ohio businesses and has relationships with Marysville-based Honda of America Manufacturing Inc., which donated a Honda Element vehicle for the Too Much Fun Mobile Tour, while Speedway LLC in Enon pays for the promotional vehicle’s gas.

McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD) has 127 restaurants around Central Ohio. Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) owns many drink brands in addition to its namesake beverage line, including Sprite, Vitaminwater, Powerade and Minute Maid.

Sergio Gordilho, chief creative officer at Agencia Africa, said: “Innovation is in Budweiser’s DNA. Its platforms are constantly surprising consumers with the best there is in terms of premium experiences. The “Buddy Cup” is another idea bringing the brand even closer to its consumers and opening new levels of interaction for them.”

The aim of the “Buddy Cup” is to enhance brand activation and increase the interaction between Budweiser consumers attending the brand’s sponsored parties, concerts and festivals.

The K-Cup Patent Is Dead, Long Live The K-Cup

by papercups - on May 1st 2013 - Comments Off on The K-Cup Patent Is Dead, Long Live The K-Cup


Green Mountain Coffee Roasters GMCR +1.65% managed to get tens of millions of Americans paying per cup for the coffee they brew in their own kitchens, and as long as its patents lasted, it was the only company that could sell the single-serve pods their Keurig coffee machines needed.

With those patents expiring this September, a big part of that lucrative arrangement comes to an end. Other companies can now produce their own versions of the so-called K-cup, and advertise them as being compatible with Keurig machines. And at the same time Starbucks SBUX +0.43% is now selling its own machine and pods, aiming to get its store customers to switch across in their homes as well.

Disrupting the Ice Cream Aisle: Talenti’s Path to Success

by papercups - on Apr 30th 2013 - Comments Off on Disrupting the Ice Cream Aisle: Talenti’s Path to Success


Following his college graduation, entrepreneur Josh Hochschuler booked a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires with two suitcases and enough money for a few weeks. After five years of ex-pat living there, while working in finance, he returned to the U.S. with a new-found appreciation for the country’s gelato.

It’s a passion that propelled Hochschuler on a years-long quest to carve out a successful niche in the premium American ice cream market.

Dallas Roots

“When I moved back to Dallas, where I’m originally from, I couldn’t find anything similar so I decided that I would bring something I loved back to the states from Argentina,” Hochschuler said.

To understand the intricate gelato-making process, he had spent months apprenticing with a local family in Argentina. They had been making the dessert for generations using a traditional Argentine gelato method that uses pure cane sugar rather than high-fructose corn syrup. The recipe also has less fat than ice cream.

Together, Hochschuler and the Argentine family opened up a retail store in Dallas named Talenti — a tribute to Bernardo Buontalenti, the Florentine artist credited for inventing gelato.

But Hochschuler soon realized he didn’t like retail’s hours or the business model, which usually only focuses on in-store consumption. Instead, he wanted to get quality product into people’s homes and restaurants.


Streetwise: Nothing says summer like frozen yogurt

by papercups - on Apr 30th 2013 - Comments Off on Streetwise: Nothing says summer like frozen yogurt

This past week’s weather may not have put anyone in a spring and summer sort of mood, but Streetwise has something that could help.

Build your own frozen yogurt chain Cherryberry, 1810 Jackson St., plans to open this week.

Let the build-your-own sugar fix begin!

Jason Madsen, the Cherryberry franchise operator in this region, said the Oshkosh location will open later this week after it hosts a friends and family event for those who “like” the Cherryberry Oshkosh Facebook page.

For those not familiar, Cherryberry gives you the cup and lets you decide what variety of and how much frozen yogurt you want. From there, you can add the toppings of your choice in the volume of your choice.

The average price per cup runs between $4 and $5, depending on your personal concoction’s total weight.

Madsen said Facebook is the best place for people to stay on top of when opening day will officially be. Until then, Streetwise will just keep dreaming of summer.

Maple bacon frozen yogurt — a review with video!

by papercups - on Apr 30th 2013 - Comments Off on Maple bacon frozen yogurt — a review with video!

I am a big fan of food that doesn’t make any sense.

I have had more than one beer milkshake in my lifetime, friends.

That is why, when you ask yourself “Who is the target audience for maple bacon frozen yogurt?” the answer is me.

Yogurt Mountain recently made this miracle product available, along with other nontraditional frozen yogurts such as “Cup of Coffee.”

Yes. Not just a frappuccino.

Frozen yogurt with coffee flavor.


Lola’s Frozen Yogurt opens new location on South Main Street

by papercups - on Apr 30th 2013 - Comments Off on Lola’s Frozen Yogurt opens new location on South Main Street

The opening of yogurt.com/about.php" target="_blank">Lola’s Frozen Yogurt downtown provides customers with another local choice of a treat.

Julie Skeldon, daughter of owner Lolly Skeldon, is the store vice president. Together, the duo has expanded their business to multiple locations, with their newest addition located downtown on South Main Street, which opened March 17. The store is open Monday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Skelton said.

“We have a lot of customers that go to Perrysburg and it was the smartest business decision we could make,” she said. “We were going to go north, but with so many of our customers based here, we decided going south was better.”

Pinkberry, a well-known frozen yogurt store located on campus, has set prices for their yogurt. Lola’s is a self-serving restaurant and their prices are determined by weight. It offers 10 flavors at a time with the ability to mix and match.

The process consists of: customers walking in, grabbing either a 24 or 32 ounce cup, getting as much frozen yogurt and toppings as they please, and at 43 cents an ounce, the weight determines the final price.

“We have over 95 toppings,” Skeldon said. “We really wanted to have a huge fruit selection. Typically on hand, we’ll have anywhere between 36 fruit toppings. We try to stay really healthy, but you have to still have chocolate.”

Lola’s uses non-fat or low-fat milk for their yogurt, Skeldon said. As opposed to ice cream, which is typically made from heavy cream, frozen yogurt is low in fat and calories.

Graduate Assistant Sarah Dewitt said she first heard about Lola’s from a friend in her program before the business opened their new store.

“I really like it, I like the number of options and all of the fruit and granola toppings,” Dewitt said. “I like the plain, original flavor. I put a lot of fruit and usually some brownie bites on it to spice it up.”

Each machine has two flavors on either side, with the ability to mix both in the middle. Carried on from their Perrysburg location because of popularity, Weightwatcher points and calorie counts are written next to the flavors, Skeldon said.

Sophomore Chase Leedy went to Lola’s for the first time a couple weeks ago. What he likes about Lola’s is the size of the cups and amount of toppings available. Leedy said he will probably be going back to Lola’s over Pinkberry because of the price.

“I think you get more for your buck at Lola’s,” Leedy said.

While Lola’s has only had their doors open for a month, the store is planning on having a variety of other options besides yogurt. An alternative or addition to yogurt available is bubble tea, a drink with a milk, green tea or black tea base with the option of adding tapioca balls called “boba.”

“We will have a little kiosk where you can actually just do it yourself,” Skeldon said. “We’re going to experiment with bubble tea and frozen yogurt together.”

The store is planning a grand opening in the summer as well as events and activities for that week. By the end of the year, Lola’s hopes to have another shop open, Skeldon said.

“We’re really fortunate and grateful,” Skeldon said.
