Milwaukee, Wis. – May 18, 2021 – Drink Wisconsinbly has teamed up with the new Milwaukee startup Ezbuzz in an effort to directly provide support to bars, restaurants, breweries, and other watering holes throughout the state - all of which have been decimated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since COVID-19 shutdowns began, bars and restaurants have seen closures and substantial reductions in revenue. By December 2020, over 110,000 restaurants experienced permanent or long-term closures due to the economic free fall caused by the pandemic. As Wisconsin’s voice for watering holes around the state, Drink Wisconsinbly is committed to helping businesses stay afloat - and grow!
Ezbuzz, which launched in October 2020 to support small businesses during the pandemic, is a web-based app that allows businesses to create, sell and track digital “Trails” of deals. Trails can be shared and sold anywhere online, giving local spots an all digital way to promote and support their business.
By partnering with the non-profit Friends of Wisconsin State Parks, Drink Wisconsinbly is able to donate revenue from Trail sales back to the actual hiking trails within the state of Wisconsin, in addition to participating businesses.
"The drinking establishments throughout Wisconsin have been the backbone of our culture since our state was established. So much of our economy depends on restaurants, bars, hospitality and everything in between. When on-premise bars and restaurants are pummeled by a pandemic, that sends a wave of negative impact to their suppliers, like breweries and distilleries, forces their staff into unemployment and so much more."
Drink Wisconsinbly Trails will be valid anywhere between six and twelve months, which means Trail customers can purchase the Trails now and redeem deals anytime within the valid date range. After purchasing a Trail, your deals are emailed and texted to you - no booklets to forget at home. For redeeming deals the process is 100% contactless and requires no scanners or additional POS apps for participating businesses. This simplicity was purposefully designed by Ezbuzz and a handful of Wisconsin breweries and bars.
As of 5/18/2021, Drink Wisconsinbly is signing up bars, restaurants, breweries, distilleries and other watering holes in four regions: Milwaukee, Madison, Door County, and Wisconsin Dells. Businesses interested in participating can sign up for free at join.dwtrails.com. For businesses in other areas of Wisconsin, Drink Wisconsinbly will launch a new Trail whenever 10 or more watering holes sign up in a region.
