      BEER BITES - Bar Snack Food Startup Business - Partners Wanted


      PRODUCT:  A novel, hip, trendy, conversation-starting product in the salty snack, bar snacks, brewing, hotel & hospitality space.


      CONCEPT:  Proven concept in Europe, product has yet to reach prime US market.  A CONFIDENTIAL Business Plan is available upon request & signed NDA/NC agreement.


      OPPORTUNITY:  Little innovation has occurred in the bar snacks vertical - not only are the typical pretzels, nuts, and snack mixes served at a bar or restaurant lounge boring and unexciting - they are infamously unsanitary! Bar-top bowls have proven to fester among the highest bacterium counts anywhere. "Beer Bites" provides a win-win for the customer & establishment where the purveyor converts a cost-center to a revenue-stream and the customer can order fun, tasty, sanitary, and highly novel snacks from a bar menu.
