"I'd like to buy the worldSeattlea C---Jones Soda..." This Friday, Jones Soda expands their previously on-the-down-low Free Soda Friday to include every man woman and child in Seattle, if they can get themselves to South Lake Union. The company has been giving away Friday road sodas since 1996. "It began as a way to kick-off the weekend. It started small, usually no more than 20 or 30 people would come by our office before the end of the day," said Zac Carr, Event Manager, Jones Soda. "As word started to travel, more and more people started showing up." The company normally offers free soda between the hours of 3:00-5:00pm on Fridays and often sees as many as 300 people in an afternoon.
I wonder how many thirsty freeloaders this Friday will bring. Mind your Ps & Qs people. Jones really has a way with fun and unique participatory marketing, now if they can only keep that stock price above $1.00/share... Wait, do the shareholders know about Free Pop Fridays? Shhhh....Free Jones Soda: 234 Ninth Ave. North, July 10th, 8:00am to 5:00pm, various retail locations from 11:00am to 1:00pm.
