If you aren’t already offering your own version of a wellness shot, juice shot, or juice bomb, here is your chance. They are the perfect impulse buy or add-on item for your customers. Plus, they are cost-effective compared to a standard 12 oz bottle of juice. These shots can be sold anywhere between $3 – $7 depending on the ingredients and make a great grab and go!
