Cocktail Friday - Sake, Snacks, Surprise

August 12, 2016

It is Cocktail Friday at the Specialist Works US and today we are sipping sake. Or shooting it, whatever your preference. We're enjoying this delicious Japanese rice wine with our box of freshly delivered Japanese snacks. Every month we receive a box from Japan Crate packed with interesting and tasty candies, and we're always pleasantly surprised by what we find. This month featured sweet animal crackers, coffee-flavored hard candy, and caramel covered pretzels. Japan Crate is just one of many startups using the power of the internet to make things easier for consumers, and profitable for venture capitalists. Subscription services like Harry's, Hello Fresh, and Graze are some of our favorites!

With out having to maintain a brick-and-mortar store, and with much of the process being automated, subscription services enjoy substantially lower overhead than traditional companies. The services integrates themselves into consumers lifestyles, resulting in consistent and habitual purchases. With many of these brands, the time saved is the most important aspect of the process, whether it's search time, cooking time or consumption time. Millennial consumers especially, in search of a better work-life balance, value the flexibility and will happily trade time spent cooking for time spent living. Definitely an idea we subscribe to!
