Bahama Buck’s, the original shaved ice company, and Banana Products, the leading provider of banana shaped safety cones, are teaming up to provide a safe and fun eating environment by placing Banana Cones in the 54 retail outlets via distribution. Visitors can be treated to a Buck’s original shaved ice and see a banana safety cone, drawing attention as needed.
With the increasing concern over customer safety driven by increasing liability associated with slip and fall lawsuits as seen in this recent Cheesecake Factory lawsuit, Bahama Buck’s is taking a proactive approach to prevent slips and falls this summer by placing Banana Cones in their retail outlets. Research shows that by gaining people’s attention to areas where there might be slippery floors with a safety cone that looks like a banana, they are less likely to slip and fall, thus reducing the liability of lawsuits.
According to Cambridge University, “Warnings should be designed so that they will be noticed and examined, they should be understandable by as large a portion of their intended audience as possible”. Banana Products developed the Banana Cone to replace the commoditized yellow safety signs that are now frequently unnoticed. The banana fits nicely with the tropical themed Bahama Buck’s mission while taking proactive efforts in improving safety.
“At Bahama Buck’s, we are focused on providing a great customer experience,” said Rudy Rodriguez, Business Marketing Manager, “We want to provide a safe environment and by placing Banana Cones in areas where we need to get attention, we can promote safety in a way that makes customers smile. And the tropical themes are synergistic”.
