Don’s Supply can help you create a destination happy hour!

The term “happy hour” has been around for about 100 years, and has its roots in the US Navy. Groups of sailors formed social clubs to unwind and let their hair down after finishing their daily duties, and the tradition has expanded to bars and restaurants throughout the world. People enjoy having a ‘third place” to go after work, and smart bar owners know that a brisk happy hour business is an important component of sustained success.

Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ leading restaurant and bar supply store since 1969, and we’re always a phone call or mouse click away when you’re ready to take your happy hour to the next level. We operate a 13,000 foot showroom located at 9912 Interstate 30, and are always happy to provide our expertise at no additional charge. We’ve been partnering with bar owners for over five decades, and we’re ready to make you our next repeat customer! Here are a few of the “must haves” for a great happy hour program at your bar:

Bar equipment and supplies-We offer premium mixing equipment, blenders, pourers, caddies, and speed rails at value prices. We definitely recommend setting up multiple workstations so that you can keep your customers’ glasses full no matter how busy that you get. Selling them multiple drinks is an important part of staying profitable, and we’re here to help you get ready to handle a full house on a busy night!

Finest Call® cocktail mixes-Mixed drinks offer the highest profit margins of all beverages, and Finest Call offers a great selection of top shelf syrups and purees to help you create great cocktails. You can mix all of the standard cocktails that your guests ask for, and even come up with some of your own!

Margarita machines-One out of every five mixed drinks served in America is a margarita, and a frozen margarita machine makes serving a perfect margarita or daiquiri quick and easy. We recommend offering different flavors of frozen drinks at all times, and also creating seasonal drink specials. You’re only limited by your imagination!
