Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Links Drinks!
Three questions with Fred Evanko, founder of Links Drinks.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Our best-selling product is the original Classic Transfusion Ready to Drink canned cocktail made with Vodka, Ginger Ale, and Grape Juice, but we also have 2 new flavors now the Front Nine Transfusion with Orange Juice and the Back Nine with Cranberry Juice. All of them are 7% ABV, Gluten Free with natural ingredients, and no preservatives.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
We rely on all of the local liquor stores, golf courses, and bar restaurants in CT to help promote and sell our product. We also source one of our key ingredients locally and our distributor is of course local in CT as well.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
I wouldn’t say we have reimagined our business, but I feel like we have come a long way from a small start-up with only 1 product when we launched here in the summer of 2019 to 3 products now available in 16 states and almost 3,000 locations.
Fred would like to nominate ConnectFairfield to be featured next!
