Today we’d like to introduce you to Evan Davis.
Hi Evan, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
Mix and Shoot Beverage was founded in 2017 based on the principles of a bartenders club. The goal was to bring in bartenders from different restaurants and local bars to share techniques, recipes, and experiences within the hospitality industry.
Over time, through word of mouth, Mix and Shoot began bartending private events by using actual active, local, highly knowledgable, entertaining bartenders, servers, and industry experts throughout the state.
Today, Mix and Shoot have grown into a full-service entertainment company, serving over 300 events per year, with the use of bartenders, DJs, servers, event planners, and so on. There is nothing Mix and Shoot can’t produce. There is nothing that Mix and Shoot can’t service.
“Mixing the Best Experiences in Colorado”
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The biggest struggle was COVID and the shutdown of events in 2020. We lost everything and kept to a few strings to keep us afloat. However, one of our core values is “Excellence through Resilience.” This means that you can try to knock us down but we will always get back up and hit harder.
Running a business with no loans, no money, and still being able to grow our brand and reputation through word of mouth and not traditional advertising methods must mean something. It means our Integrity is high, our morale is high, our family of bartenders has grown stronger and we help each other get through these tough times.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Mix and Shoot are best known for our Integrity to our clients. We have no problem guiding our clients in the best possible decision for their event, even if it is not through us! We understand that we are not the cheapest, but we are also not the most expensive.
We make sure we save our clients on every dollar they can from the return of alcohol to giving our discounts on rentals, venue referrals, and even our military discount. Yet we also sell our worth of having a fun, entertaining, beyond-the-bar experience, real bartender and not someone who is a project manager by day and can pour a vodka soda by night.
We simply don’t hire those people for that reason. We have no problem getting on the dance floor and showing grandma the Cupid Shuffle, and bus tables, taking care of our clients, and doing the right thing when no one is looking. That is Integrity. Integrity Above All.
