ORANGE, Calif., June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of the WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand announced today that the nation's first-ever guacamole-themed lounge, officially known as The Guac Stop, will be coming to Atlanta June 28 – July 2 at Atlantic Station. With 79 percent of U.S. households consuming guacamole*, The Guac Stop will make avo-loving dreams come true, spreading guacamole love as well as the WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand's mentality – Live Wholly™.
"The Guac Stop is designed to give guacamole lovers and brand fans a fun way to enjoy WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® products," said Terrill W. Bacon, senior brand manager of MegaMex Foods. "Sometimes we all need to slow down and appreciate life's special moments, and enjoying guacamole and chips with friends is a great way to do it!"
To showcase the versatility of WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® foods, The Guac Stop will feature a customizable guacamole bar including all the fixings to create a limited-edition "Spicy Peach" style guacamole. Visitors will also have the chance to sample a variety of WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® products, including newer innovations, like Layered Dips, and enjoy a hands-on experience that celebrates real food made with simple ingredients.
While guacamole is the main attraction, it's certainly not the only thing on the menu. In addition to customizing personal guac creations, people will be invited to participate in a series of ongoing "happenings" ranging from iPhone photography classes led by local photographer Marie Matthews; manicures and hand massages by Labella Mobile Nail Spa; a terrarium planting class with Terry Furuta Designs; barre fitness classes, the popular workout combining a mix of Pilates, dance and yoga; live music from local acoustic-pop duo Gibbs+Cash; a silent disco, giveaways and more. These daily "happenings" will spotlight five key WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand values of Well Being, Connections, Real Food, Personal Style and Feeling Good.
All events (including the guacamole tastings) are free and open to the public, but space is limited, according to Bacon.
"And no, guacamole doesn't cost extra at The Guac Stop," he adds. "We just want to share the goodness."
