LINK: Large Industry News & Knowledge

Basis Technologies' most relevant verticals and what you should know about them. This month we have some interesting content around the restaurant & dining industry - read below to learn more.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the state of New York temporarily legalized to-go alcoholic beverages as a means to help bars and restaurants. State lawmakers initially wanted to make this permanently legal and join 16 other states with similar laws, but liquor store industry lobbyists pushed hard, arguing that restaurants and bars would upend their business and cited public health and safety concerns. The legislation was not passed, and the program ended in June 2021, but Governor Kathy Hochul included the program in her budget proposal and is hoping to legalize to-go alcohol this year. If this passes, other states will likely follow suit.

As more states consider legalizing to-go alcoholic beverages, alcohol brands, liquor stores and other locations that sell alcohol will have to find a way to stand out among their potential newfound competition. Brands and liquor stores should consider using high frequencies to gain attention from consumers and use longform media to demonstrate how consumers can get creative making their own drinks.
