Day Party Planning Guide 101

Spice up tailgating, Taco Tuesday & Happy Hour with these tips

Spice up Tailgating, Taco Tuesday & Happy Hour with These Tips

So long summer… Get ready for a fantastic fall! This is the perfect season to stockpile on summer savings, while prepping for busy – and profitable – shifts at your restaurant or food truck, thanks to the start of college football and the NFL season, the latest trek to a different Taco Tuesday or another epic Happy Hour. It’s all included in our Day Party Planning Guide!

Want to attract spirited locals to your food establishment? Create a party atmosphere. Remember: sports is more than the game. It’s an excuse to socialize, get out the house, stop somewhere friendly on the way home. While Fandemonium does keep some fans in front of big-screen TVs for hours, other patrons enjoy socializing, food and libations as much as touchdowns, tackles and sacks.

So hang (the right!) football banners, play complementary music (including fight songs) and transform your spot into a friendly, inviting place that encourages conversations, networking and of course… team spirit! Add timely promotions, including giveaways, and keep patrons engaged with halftime and post-game entertainment.

Just as important: supply your staff with equipment that keeps the food tasty and frozen beverages chilled. These in-stock items are must-haves that you don’t want to miss at ACityDiscount:

Frozen Beverages Machines

In the right atmosphere, frozen beverages maintain their popularity year-round. Daiquiris and margaritas are favorites for this adult crowd. Make sure to order a durable unit that can withstand heavy usage. Frozen drink machines vary among manufacturers. Grindmaster-Cecil Ware (GMCW) provides high-quality frozen beverage machines at a competitive price.

Recommendation: GMCW Double Granita Machine (2) 2.5 Gal Dispensers Black.

Ok, guys. This is vital to the Day Party Planning Guide… Frosty Factory produces one of the most comprehensive lines of frozen drink machines. Known for being user-friendly, its units offer great features such as the stand-by switch. This feature allows the mix to remain refrigerated in the machine overnight. This brand is also popular because of its small footprint, high production capability and remote refrigeration.

Recommendation: Margarita Machine 12 Qt Frozen Drink Dispenser Air Cooled.

Popcorn Machines

Popcorn is the perfect appetizer for the weekend sports fan. It’s a finger food, which is perfect because fans need their hands ready to signal touchdowns and dismiss bad calls. It's a great freebie for sports lounges because of its price.

The unit’s size allows restaurant staff to stay ahead of the popcorn demand and keep up with paid menu orders in the kitchen. So get ready to pop, pop... pop away!

Recommendation: Benchmark 6 oz Commercial Popcorn Machine 120v Premiere.

Coffee Brewers

No matter the temperature, coffee drinkers want their coffee - from Espresso and Cafe con leche to Mocha, Americano and Irish coffee. Daily consumption of coffee has increased in America, according to the National Coffee Association. A 2017 report showed that 62 percent of more than 3,000 people participating in an online survey said they consumed coffee the previous day – an increase from 57 percent in 2016. So give it to them in style. West Bend’s commercial urn can brew one cup in less than 60 seconds.

Overall, it can brew 40-100 cups, which is ideal when coffee is in high demand. No filter is needed. Its features include a two-way, no-drip faucet.

Recommendation: West Bend Commercial 100 Cup (3.9 Gallon).

54" Portable Bar with Ice Sink, Speed Rail & Casters

Outdoor Furniture

Even in the fall, these patrons love the outdoor patios and rooftops. So create a comfortable setting, convincing them to stay longer. The perfect compliment? A portable bar.

Portable bars add the convenience of an extra bar within footsteps of patrons. ACityDiscount provides a wide range of durable all-weather bars suitable for poolside, deck or rooftop gatherings.
