5-hour ENERGY offers C-store owners unmatched revenue opportunities

February 9, 2021

Visibility. Popularity. Profits.

These are just three of the reasons that 5-hour ENERGY has come to be a favorite of independent convenience store owners. No other front-end product offers the margins of 5-hour ENERGY shots.*

Since 2004, 5-hour ENERGY has offered adult consumers a way to get a boost in an easy-to-take package. The pioneering energy shot, today 5-hour ENERGY is available in most U.S. convenience stores. The brand is synonymous with the billion-dollar energy shot category, thanks to its national advertising campaigns and major sports sponsorships. 5-hour ENERGY is the only energy shot to offer this market presence.

For 2021, Living Essentials LLC is launching a new shot and a major promotion — both designed to boost in-store traffic and help store owners sell more 5-hour ENERGY products.

The 5-hour ENERGY Official Sponsor of Getting Stuff Done promotion, which starts Feb. 1, gives consumers a chance to win a share of $100,000. Specially marked countertop and floor displays feature the promotion. These displays come pre-stocked with Watermelon Extra Strength, the latest 5-hour ENERGY shot flavor.

Independent C-stores have been critical to the success of 5-hour ENERGY products, which is why Living Essentials is always working on new products and promotions like these to help increase sales. It’s also why the company created the 5-hour ENERGY Retailer Rewards Program — an initiative designed just for small-business owners. Through regular, targeted communications, program members learn about the best ways to sell 5-hour ENERGY, and make more money doing it.

A recent communication, “Fix the Mix,” taught owners about the importance of carrying the right 5-hour ENERGY shot flavors, tailoring product selection to each size display rack. By ensuring that every rack is stocked with the correct flavor assortment, store owners maximize their sale and profit potential.

Other topics recently covered in member-only emails include the pitfalls of selling bargain-brand energy shots and why it pays to know the people who live and work near your store. 

Retailer Rewards program participants also set themselves apart by having the opportunity to promote 5-hour ENERGY sales through free in-store advertising and point-of-sale displays, and branded merchandise available only to members.

In 2019, Oberto launched a line of charcuterie products that quickly became popular across the Pacific Northwest. Charcuterie is a French word used to describe a variety of cold, cooked or cured meats, which has taken the world by storm in 2020. Oberto charcuterie has artisanal qualities, and specialty cheeses and meats which make this the perfect high quality on the go snack, appetizer or even meal with your salad or in a sandwich. The Oberto legacy started in 1918 when Constantino Oberto introduced authentic Italian Salame and cured meats to the Pacific Northwest. With every step forward, Oberto has always looked back to make sure they’re holding onto their heritage. Oberto charcuterie is imported from Italy where the tradition of cured meats and cheeses has been handed down through generation after generation, where the finest prosciutto, salame and cheeses are created. With nine different varieties and sizes of charcuterie, including prosciutto, provolone and fontinello cheeses, Oberto has the perfect tray for any occasion. Oberto prosciutto is aged for a minimumof one year and made with only two ingredients, porkand salt. Oberto provolone and fontinello cheeses are made with 100% Italian milk collected everyday from farms within 50 miles of the Italian production site. Curds are stretched and kneaded in the traditional technique, creating the soft and elastic texture. Each of our nine trays has something different to offer. A lot has changed in the 102 years since Constantino Oberto arrived in America, but one thing has always remained the same – quality, flavor and heritage. Oberto charcuterie is above all others, so upscale your assortment today!
