The health and safety of our customers is our top priority. As such, we are taking all required safety precautions outlined by the CDC. Our delivery drivers wear gloves and mask during all deliveries. When possible, our deliveries occur outside of standard business hours (between 5 am and 9 am) to limit exposure to your staff. In addition, all payments being accepted are contact-less to avoid unnecessary exposure.
Increase in product demand: Consumers have increased demand for at-home consumable products that come in aluminum cans and bottles. Instead of ordering a fountain drink at the local restaurant, consumers are now looking for canned beverages on a to-go basis.
Shortage of aluminum: It’s not just soda, but tea, coffee and alcoholic beverages producers have geared up to manufacture those to-go options, thus increasing demand in aluminum and decreasing popular fountain drinks. Companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7-up and others are reducing production to core products during this shortage. Specialty drinks are harder and harder to come by.
Covid-19 outbreaks at certain beverage manufacturing plants are causing labor shortages in manufacturing where demand was already high.
You may have noticed that we are unable to deliver some of your favorite beverages recently. These order shortages are all a direct result of the current pandemic and exist for several reasons but primarily include:
Just like the toilet paper shortages or the antibacterial wipes, production will eventually catch up. For the time being, consider adding other available beverages, especially those that come in plastic bottles.
