New Year, new business! Every year, more than 600,000 new businesses open their doors in the US.

In 2023, start your new business off on the right foot when you host an experience-focused grand opening that guests won’t soon forget. Keep reading to learn about our small business grand opening rentals that can be used to put together a memorable event!

Grand Opening Cocktail Bar

Nowadays a bar, big or small, is a must-have at a grand opening. You don’t need anything fancy (unless that’s what you want), just a bar and a simple menu will do. Just don’t forget to include some mocktails! We stock a variety of bars to suit every style, such as our rustic Bond Bar or elegant Harpeth Bar, the latter of which can be customized with your business logo. Depending on the size of your drink menu, our 4-foot Franklin Bars will get the job done. They’re the perfect size for a small selection of wine or champagne. To help your bartenders, grab a set of shelving to stock glassware. Either our Gold Avenue Bar Back Shelf or Black Bar Back Shelf will do. If you have room, you could also include a lounge area! Check out any of our curated lounge packages, or mix and match furniture to create an on-brand social area.

Serve up Light Bites & Bubbly

To serve up delicious drinks you need equally impressive glassware. Our catalog of glassware is expansive and features options for every type of drink and every style of event. The Cybil Champagne Flutes are a quirky option for serving up a little bubbly. Or opt for our Pure or Madison Glasses when featuring a selection of wine. For specialty drinks, grab classic Martini Glassware or trendy Coupe Glasses.

Alongside beverages, you should also offer some light bites or appetizers. To create a stylish display, consider renting a second bar to serve as a budget. Alternatively, our Market Cart offers a chic look. Consider showcasing food on crisp white serving pieces or silver trays. If you need to make the most of limited space, cake stands of various heights will look gorgeous and lend dimension. To add a little color and soften up the display, grab a table runner!

Create a Grand Entrance

The most popular pieces out of our small business grand opening rentals are those that can be used to create a grand entrance. This is an effective way to catch the eye of passerby and make an outstanding first impression. Start by rolling out the red (white, purple or blue) carpet for guests. For an extra luxe look, we even have a red rope and stanchion.
