Food and Alcohol Event Specialist
Seeking Part-Time Staffing of Food and/or Alcohol Events in San Antonio, Texas
I have been promoting in-store, food and non-food events for approximately 1.5 years, having recently expanded into in-store alcoholic-beverage sampling events.
Acting as a “brand ambassador,” these events promote various food, beer, and wines in various client grocery stores in San Antonio, TX.
Holding both a Food Safety Certificate and an Alcoholic Beverage Commission Seller Training Certification, I am attempting to migrate more into alcohol samplings for the obvious time / pay ratios. Likewise, it appears diversifying among several reliable event / marketing companies offers more consistent work availability.
I have sampled for Plungerhead Wine of Lodi, California, Trapiche Oak Cask Cabanero wine, Stella Artois Belgian Beer, Corona Familiar beer, and Anheuser-Bush, Budweiser Lime-A-Rita and Bud Black Crown.
My philosophy is “if you demo it, they will come” - invite all, some will sample and some will buy. It is simply a numbers game.
During a lull in traffic in the main isle, I patrol the beer and/or wine isles in an attempt to engage shoppers, as opposed to simply standing back waiting for shoppers to approach the demo table.
I am very frequently complimented by clients’ Showtime Leads, Wine Stewarts, and Event Facilitators.
While alcohol sampling events, provide brand “speaking points” I always attempt to find additional product information, reviews, etc on line to enhance the presentation. After all, most wine buyers are very knowledgeable about what they want, as are to a lesser, but still significant extent, buyers of beer, lager, and ale.
I am outgoing and enthusiastic; but not pushy, yet always asking for the sale.
If your company handles such events in the San Antonio area, I am seeking weekend employment along these lines.
