Franchising

At heart, Snowy River is a cocktail decorating product manufacturing and distribution company. We use our products to create “eye turning” experiences both in-bars, at home or via our online platforms.

Our cocktail decorating products, from cocktail rimmers to glitters, are award-winning and all natural. Snowy River products are already being sold across the US to bars, restaurants, casinos, promotional event companies, food service companies and many others.

Our cocktail bars serve as a showcase for our decorating products and cocktail menus which in turns support retail, ecommerce and wholesale sales as well as mobile bartending services.

Franchise structure at a glance

snowy river cocktail bar franchise

A Snowy River franchise offers you the opportunity to build your own cocktail decorating business under a two-tier model so you can build your business the way you want it.

Tier 1: Distribution of Snowy River cocktail decorating products in a specific territory. Work from home or from an office, either way you are building retail and wholesale sales of Snowy River products and participating in ecommerce sales of the product as well. Mobile bartending can be launched from this Tier to allow more event style income.

Tier 2: Includes everything from Tier 1 with the additional benefit of adding your own cocktail bar to your territory. A bar (or restaurant/nightclub format) can be added at your option any time during the term of your franchise with our support and training.

This two tier format provides franchisees maximum flexibility in a number of ways. 1) For those not wanting to open a bar they can still build a home-based distribution business 2) investments levels are lower for tier 1 and 3) it allows more time to open a bar (if you choose to) given COVID-19 concerns.

Included with your franchise

How to Open a Bar?

Opening a bar may seem challenging although there a number of ways you can do this from owning an existing bar through to opening a greenfield site. Many franchisees may also look to acquire an existing bar and then convert it to a Snowy River franchise.

Either way we support our franchisees to build the business the way they want within our structure and you have the option to have a bar, restaurant or even nightclub format. Our focus is on the cocktail decorating concept and we work with you to create the model you want.

Once your bar is open you can then support your retail, wholesale and mobile bartending services from that location as well if you choose.

Talk to us today to discuss converting your existing bar or restaurant to a Snowy River location. Snowy River Cocktail Co is listed on the SBA Franchise Directory. Please contact your SBA lender for further details.
