From Wall Street to Well Being
In early 2016, Baya Bar founder Bill Loesch was at a crossroads. Although he had achieved his goal of a Wall Street career, he wanted to make a change in his life. He took a trip to clear his mind, and along the way decided it was time to do something different. He returned to New York to quit his former dream job, and put his background as a Financial Analyst to work as he began months of research and development on a relatively new concept for Brooklyn and Staten Island – the Acai Bowl. Acai is a fiber-and-antioxidant-rich super fruit from Brazil that had taken the West Coast by storm, and which was gaining ground and moving East, creating a new demand and market for the product.
Loesch developed his recipes, and got ahead of the East Coast Acai trend by opening his first Baya Bar in December 2016, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, serving up bowls full of ‘freshness, fiber, fuel and fun’ that help bring well-being to their consumers.
A Social Market
Baya Bar credits a strong social media marketing program for much of their marketing success. They built Instagram and Facebook pages well before the first location was opened. This allowed word to spread in advance of the opening, and got people talking about them and anxious to sample their creations.
They have continued to use social media to share new products and new locations as they open. The strategy is working, and the crowds continue to come in for a snack or a meal. The Baya Bar audience tends to be mostly women and young folks ages 14 to 34 - a client base that loves to share photos of beautiful food on social media, which means enormous amounts of free marketing for the Baya Brand.
Loesch wants to move the concept to a national level through franchising, with a few goals in mind: to create a strong well known brand across the nation; to bring great tasting healthy food to the masses; and to help consumers become more aware of what they are putting into their bodies
