Prepping for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is quickly approaching and it’s a great holiday to promote in any produce department. Here are a few quick ideas for how to plan for a successful holiday. 

Plan with your Account Manager: Discuss display ideas with your Account Manager, and secure orders for items in your display as early as possible. 

Produce Themed Displays: Plan on featuring items like avocados, limes, jalapeños, cilantro, mangoes and tomatoes. Did you know Cinco de Mayo is the second largest holiday for avocados in the USA? Super Bowl is the biggest! Make sure you build big, festive displays with lots of color contrast. 

Recipes: Try incorporating recipe cards or signage explaining all the uses of different produce items and what they pair well with. 

Cross Merchandise: Design displays around salsa and guacamole themes. Cross-merchandise produce displays with items like tortillas, tortilla chips, fancy gourmet salts, or citrus reamers. Coordinate with other departments in your store to see what other cross-merchandising opportunities are available! 

Have Fun: Holidays like Cinco De Mayo are a great opportunity to get creative, to try something new, and to experiment with your displays!
