Ennismore announces partnership with functional soda brand OLIPOP, now available at SLS Brickell, SLS South Beach, SLS Lux Brickell, Hyde Midtown, Mondrian Los Angeles and MAMA Shelter Los Angeles
NEW YORK, May 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ennismore, the fastest-growing lifestyle hospitality company, is pleased to reveal a new multi-year partnership with viral soda brand OLIPOP, the fastest growing refrigerated functional beverage brand in America. The partnership kicked off in February at the 2023 Miami Food and Wine Festival.
Guests at SLS Brickell, SLS South Beach, SLS LUX Brickell, Hyde Midtown, Mondrian Los Angeles and MAMA Shelter LA will soon be able to enjoy multiple flavors of OLIPOP within guest-room minibars, pool-side, and at each hotel’s restaurants and bars, enabling a wide offering of delicious and healthy beverages throughout the day. Similarly, hotel guests will be able to enjoy seasonal OLIPOP activations during their stay, as well as having the opportunity to order and ship to home OLIPOP at a preferential guest rate, further enhancing an element of ‘surprise and delight’ to the guest experience.
Michele Caniato, Chief Partnerships Officer & EVP of Brand Marketing, Ennismore, says, “We are always eager to bring new and innovative products to our guests. The world of soft drinks has changed tremendously in the last few years and consumer behavior supports the need for greater and healthier food and beverage offerings. Ennismore is committed to wellness and we feel OLIPOP is changing the landscape of better-for-you beverage by offering a soda that is not only delicious but also functional, so this partnership truly is the perfect collaboration.”
Steven Vigilante, Director of Growth + Talent, OLIPOP says: “As we continue to grow and evolve, we’re constantly looking to showcase the brand in environments that have traditionally been dominated by legacy soda brands. Mini-bars, beach clubs, and hotel bars are the perfect next step for us as a brand and are a space that has historically not been available to ‘better-for-you’ brands. We’re excited to announce Ennismore as our premier partner in the hospitality space.”
Since launching in 2018, OLIPOP has disrupted the beverage industry and amassed widespread appeal for its tasty, nostalgia-infused flavors and proprietary gut-friendly formulation—proving that delicious taste and health are not mutually exclusive. The brand recently even became the No. 1 best-selling Root Beer in a national retailer, surpassing A&W – the largest root beer supplier in the US. OLIPOP is also available in a variety of flavors, including Vintage Cola, Classic Root Beer, Lemon Lime, Orange Squeeze, Strawberry Vanilla, Cherry Vanilla, Banana Cream and more – all for only 35-50 calories, 2-5 grams of sugar and prebiotic fiber that supports gut health.
Ennismore continues to expand its strategic partnerships with international brands – including Fortune 500 – across automotive, communications, beverage, and financial services to deliver innovative and bespoke benefits, products, and experiences. This partnership builds on existing collaborations with Chase Sapphire, HEINZ, Saint James Iced Tea, Barilla, Danone, Lincoln Motor Company, Lavazza, Red Bull, Goldsheep, and MALIN+GOETZ to name a few.
