Whether it’s reviving Fruit2O – or ‘Sunny D’ itself — or scooping up valuable entrepreneurial beverage brands like Elations or Bossa Nova, Billy Cyr and his team at the Sunny Delight Beverages Company have developed a model for unlocking the value of under performing beverage brands that they’re calling the “Beverage Repair Shop.”
This June 8 at BevNET Live in New York City, Cyr will open the doors of the Sunny Delight repair shop to the beverage entrepreneurs in attendance, discussing metrics for determining the strength of their brands and sharing methods to determine if their companies are ailing. Even more importantly, Cyr will answer questions and offer up solutions that can help entrepreneurs and innovators turn their brands around.
In the six years since the company acquired its namesake brand from Procter & Gamble, Sunny Delight Beverages Company has grown through its ability to identify companies that might be undervalued not because they’re bad ideas, but because they’re not hitting on all cylinders. A visit to BevNET Live – and to the Beverage Repair Shop – will leave your brand ready to kick into a higher gear.
