Bright and early on November 6, the Bolay Oviedo team prepared for the first customers to stream through the doors of Bolay’s newest location. A grand opening is always a special event, filled with giveaways and special prizes for those who step through the doors.
Soft Opening with a Soft Landing
As the first Bolay Oviedo soft opening, this day was even more special. The crew was ready to greet and meet the people new to Bolay as they busily prepared the bold, flavorful food that is the essence of Bolay. Throughout the next two days, the team served guests the craveable food they’d been trained to expertly prepare.
Happy and excited diners enjoyed a free small bol filled with ingredients such as Hot Sweet Potato Noodles, Forbidden Black Rice, Kale Yeah Salad, Balsamic Mushrooms, Power Beans, Spicy Thai Shrimp, Miso Glazed Tofu, and more.
Grand Opening Day Arrives
The team was ready to show off and prepare specialties for their new-found fans. The doors opened at 11:00 am, and the first 50 guests received a $50 Bolay gift card upon making a purchase of $8.29 or more. The excitement was high as guests flowed in, as eager for the amazing bols as they were for the chance to win.
The winning didn’t stop once all 50 guests received their $50 gift cards. Next up: the Bolay Pineapple Hunt. Known as the universal symbol for hospitality, the pineapple means much more than that to us here at Bolay. It symbolizes our dedication to everything we think makes food great – community, nutritious ingredients, passion, flavor, and service.
Bolay fans followed our Instagram Story to find the five pineapples hidden around Oviedo. The pineapples were hidden with community partners throughout Oviedo. All five pineapples were found, and five lucky winners received a “Catering for 10” gift certificate valued at $125.
But wait, there’s more. At Bolay, it’s not unusual to expect the unexpected. Bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and everything is delicious. Add to that our Grand Opening surprise giveaways. Any guest who happened to be sitting in the Bolay Hot Seat got a chance to win a giveaway from one of our community partners. In addition, Bolay Hot Seat giveaways included 5 more Catering for 10 gift certificates.
Grand Openings Are a Weekend Event at Bolay
Why should grand openings last only one day? Why not have a Grand Opening weekend filled with special events and giveaways? Well, we couldn’t think of a reason not to, so we did. What does this mean? More chances for guests to win, and they did.
At Bolay, we’re all about clean eating and sustainability, so of course, we give away eco-friendly swag. But it doesn’t end there. The first 200 guests to purchase $8.29 or more got a reusable limited-edition cup with free refills of soda or tea when they bring their cup into the Oviedo location (offer expires 11/23/2019).
Sunday Funday at Oviedo Grand Opening
Calling all kids! The first one hundred kiddoes to visit our Oviedo location received free Bolay for a month (11/10/2019-12-10-2019) when an accompanying adult purchased $8.29 or more. In addition, a balloon artist was at the location from 12 pm-2 pm.
We loved our Sunday Funday for kids so much that we decided to keep it going at our Oviedo location. Kids under 12 eat free all day long with the purchase of a small bol valued at $8.29 or higher. Our balloon artists will be at the location from 12 pm-2 pm. This offer lasts until 12/15/2019, so hurry in.
