If you’re looking to cash in on the warmer weather, now is the perfect time to shake up your menu and add a few inspired seasonal offerings that are sure to boost your bottom line and bring in new customers.
Whether you’re running mobile catering vans that serve at outdoor events or have a busy takeaway or cafe, here are a few ways to add some limited creative options to your menu with a PET cup.

What is a PET cup?
A universal plastic cup that can be used for a variety of cold drinks, PET cups come in clear plastic and can be branded using your company logo to keep your business name in front of your customers for longer.
Available in a variety of sizes and with the option to add a domed lid, there are plenty of ways that you can use a PET cup to upsell with some exciting new menu additions perfect for those sizzling summer days and balmy nights.

Summer Smoothies

If you cater to customers that care about their health, a branded PET plastic glass offers you the ability to add smoothies with summer ingredients to your menu easily.
A great option for a busy breakfast on the move, simply add a lid to prevent spillages. Amp up your wellness credentials with inviting displays of fresh fruit, offer a selection of non-dairy milks and even a few custom topping ideas and you’re almost guaranteed to see your health conscious customers drooling over your healthy, tasty new additions. A great breakfast on the go or post-gym snack, don’t forget to showcase your smoothies across your social media to give sales a boost

Bubble Tea

One of the biggest beverage trends to hit the UK in years, bubble tea is a Taiwanese cold drink made with tea, sweetened milk or other flavourings and balls of tapioca.
Sweet, colourful and relatively easy to make, PET cups are ideal for serving bubble tea and make a colourful summer addition to coffee bars and restaurants that cater to a younger audience.
This drink also makes a great alcohol-free alternative at festivals too, so if you serve cocktails and want to upgrade your booze-free offering, this could be the drink you've been searching for.


An ice-cold drink/dessert that is popular with customers of all ages, many takeaways are cashing in on the milkshake craze by adding PET plastic glasses to their packaging shopping list.
With milk blended with ice cream flavours and a variety of toppings to help tempt customers to part with a few extra pounds on top of their usual order, adding a lid to a PET cup makes them far easier to transport for takeout or businesses that offer delivery and helps to minimise content spillages.
