Boisson’s Closure: A Reflection on the Non-Alcoholic Beverage Industry

Special thanks to Booze News. See the original article.

In a surprising turn of events, Boisson, the leading non-alcoholic retail chain in the United States, is reportedly closing its doors. Speculations about the closure emerged when a post from a Boisson employee on social media platform X hinted at the impending shutdown. Despite efforts to confirm or deny these rumors, Boisson remained silent, leaving customers and industry observers in uncertainty.

Boisson’s journey began in February 2021 with the opening of its first retail location in New York. With ambitious plans for expansion fueled by significant investments, the brand quickly gained recognition for its dedication to providing premium non-alcoholic options to consumers. However, recent changes in strategy, including a shift towards becoming a national wholesaler, raised questions about the company’s direction.

The news of Boisson’s potential closure comes as a shock to its loyal fan base and to the wider community invested in the low- and no-alcohol movement. Boisson played a pioneering role in championing non-alcoholic products, catering to a growing demand for alternatives to traditional alcoholic beverages. Despite the closure rumors, the company’s dedication to its mission was evident until the end.

At beClink, we are saddened by the news of Boisson’s closure. As fellow advocates for the non-alcoholic space, we recognize the challenges and uncertainties faced by businesses in this niche industry. However, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing customers with exceptional non-alcoholic options. Our dedication to promoting a healthier lifestyle and offering a diverse range of products will continue unabated.

The closure of Boisson serves as a reminder of the complexities inherent in the non-alcoholic beverage industry. While demand for non-alcoholic offerings is on the rise, the market remains relatively small compared to its alcoholic counterpart. This reality underscores the importance of innovation, adaptability, and community support for businesses like ours to thrive in this evolving landscape.

As we bid farewell to Boisson, we extend our gratitude to them for their contributions to the non-alcoholic beverage space. Their legacy will endure as a testament to the potential and challenges of catering to consumers seeking healthier and more diverse drink options. At beClink, we remain committed to driving positive change in the industry and serving as a beacon for those seeking a refreshing alternative to alcohol.
