BOARDMAN– Sweet Sips mobile bar service was launched in March 2022 and surpassed sales expectations for the year, says co-owner Bergen Giordani.
The company started with one mobile bar – a 1967 Scotty Camper that had been renovated with oak accents. Smaller carts were added for indoor events or as a secondary unit at a larger outdoor venue.
In October, Sweet Sips added a Piaggio Ape tap trike. The Italian-built unit was custom designed by the Sweet Sips team and is a three-wheeled street legal trike that holds four quarter kegs and has a small refrigerator for canned beverages.
In the third quarter, the brand began offering in-home mixology classes.
The schedule for this year is quickly filling, Giordani says, with bookings for graduation parties, weddings, and other outdoor events.
Sweet Sips has partnered with the Barn at Firestone Farms in Columbiana as the exclusive mobile bar provider for the new event venue.
Along with co-owner Morgen Chretien, the company employs a full-time manager and up to 10 seasonal employees.
