Areas USA

Areas USA is pleased to announce it has been awarded a 15-year contract to operate three West Virginia Parkway travel plazas and one snack bar on one of the busiest highways in the United States.

The contract represents a partnership between Areas and the West Virginia Parkways Authority. The WVA Parkways Authority’s mission is to operate and maintain the West Virginia Turnpike safely and efficiently. It provides for the construction, development, and maintenance of 88 miles of interstate roads that constitute the West Virginia Turnpike.

The route treks along West Virginia’s scenic 88-mile-long parkway, running parallel to the spectacular New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. Areas will invest over $15 million into the project and beginning in early 2023, each location will be completely redesigned featuring state-of-the-art amenities encompassing the surrounding natural beauty. Travelers will be greeted by celebrated brands such as Starbucks, Wendy’s, Popeye’s, and Firehouse Subs. In addition, each location features Areas’ own Mountain State Market travel convenience stores offering an authentic sense of place with natural design elements, local artwork, and artisanal offerings from the surrounding community.

Areas strives to become part of the fabric of each community it serves by partnering with local community organizations. This includes cultivating employment opportunities through the “Second Chance Act” program, as well as developing a training and recruitment program with the New River Community and Technical College and the ProStart Restaurant Management program for high school students. Other decisive factors in Areas’ successful bid include innovation in sales formats, a focus on new technological solutions, and a robust customer service platform exuding authentic southern hospitality. Areas will also collaborate with the West Virginia Tourism Commission and the West Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association to cross-promote the state’s tourism marketing plans. This partnership will ensure Areas remains connected and engaged with the local community throughout the life of the 15-year term. “Areas USA is a world-renowned leader in travel plaza operations, and we could not be happier that they will partner with the WV Turnpike in the operations of our upcoming world-class facilities,” says Jeff Miller, executive director of the West Virginia Parkways Authority. “Through a competitive bid process Areas submitted a proposal that absolutely fit our vision for what we want to offer motorists and patrons who travel our road and visit our facilities. From outstanding food concepts to outdoor dining ideas and their concept of establishing a Mountain State Market, we are very pleased that they have joined us in developing what we feel will be a first-class service experience while embracing and showcasing all that WV has to offer.” “We are thrilled to be a part of the West Virginia community and look forward to showcasing the magnificence of the Mountain State,” says Carlos Bernal, CEO of Areas USA. “Guests will encounter an exceptional experience rich in local heritage at all three travel plazas.

Online Casinos

Spicy Jackpots non UK Casino UK customers looking for the best gaming experience will be delighted to know that there are more options available than ever before and that there is a new name at the top of the tree. When it comes to seeking out the best Non UK casino, slots fans and table game aficionados will be cheered to hear of the elevation of Spicy Jackpots, a standout online casino that has been welcomed with open arms by players both on mobile devices and home computers. The minds behind Spicy Jackpots have reacted to the realisation that they’re in a crowded marketplace and need to stand out. To do this, they have focused on the things that make people become regular casino customers. Realising that this means picking the best games and offering the best promotional bonuses, these have been the twin focal points of Spicy Jackpots’ efforts to join the crowded marketplace that exists in online casinos today. If you want to be the best Non UK casino, then you need to compete with the best on those issues - and that’s what Spicy Jackpots is aiming for. This hasn’t happened overnight: Spicy Jackpots has been the result of a lot of work designed to ensure it could be considered the best Non UK casino when the charts came out ahead of the end of year. To ensure that it has the best games, close relationships have been fostered with the top developers, with names like Yggdrasil and Konami essential to Spicy Jackpots’ provision of games. Equally, a lot of effort has been involved in ensuring that independent developers haven’t been ignored. So often the drivers of innovation in casino gaming, the indies are well represented in Spicy Jackpots’ game lobby. Spicy Jackpots is also keen to ensure that potential gamers don’t miss out on the bonus offering that they have carefully curated. With surveys showing that promotional offers are a major attraction for casino players, they didn’t want to miss out on this element of their offer. From the start, new customers at the casino will be able to benefit from a 400% first deposit bonus - almost unheard of for a new casino - which can bulk a player’s gaming funds by as much as £2000. They also recognise the importance of rewarding customers who come back, which is why there is a string of reload offers that keep the ball rolling when it comes to bonus funds. Why is Spicy Jackpots considered by so many people to be the best Non UK casino? In no small part, it is because the casino has taken the time to figure out what casino customers want, and has gone to great lengths to ensure that this is delivered. Traditional casino players and new customers alike will be attracted by this combination of pull factors, and they’ll stick around to keep playing at Spicy Jackpots because the casino undoubtedly delivers on its promises. It will want to continue to be the best Non UK casino throughout 2023 and beyond. Customers are sure to conclude that that’s worth sticking around for. Spicy Jackpots Non UK Casino Spicy Jackpots offers a range of top of the range casino games, with slots, table games, and live dealer games all available to UK gamers who are signed up to Gamstop. It offers fast, effective live chat for customer support, and exceptional customer offers. Spicy Jackpots Signup Offer New customers to Spicy Jackpots will be immediately impressed by the offer that’s ready for them when they make their first deposit. The initial deposit in this casino is augmented by a 400% matched deposit bonus which can offer as high a lump sum as £2000. This offer is even better than it first appears, though, because the deposit bonus is topped up with 100 Free Spins. That’s just about the most generous opening offer we’ve seen. Spicy Jackpots Reload On top of the initial 400% matched deposit, Spicy Jackpots goes all out to prove it is the best Non UK casino by keeping the bonuses coming for the next five deposits. The second deposit is subject to a 200% match bonus which can be good for up to £1000 (plus 100 free spins). Following on from that, the next four deposits are all matched 100% by the casino, up to £500 apiece with an additional 50 free spins each time. The full total there is £5000 bonus betting funds and a stunning 400 free spins. That’s what they mean by “Spicy”. Spicy Jackpots Banking Spicy Jackpots, in keeping with Non UK casinos, offers a wide range of methods for withdrawal and deposit. You can deposit to your account using credit and debit cards, bank transfers, cryptocurrencies, and EcoPayz. All of these methods are fee-free, and you can withdraw from the casino using bank transfers which are also fee-free. All withdrawals will be processed in a minimum of 48 hours but may take longer to reach your bank account. What is a Non UK casino? The simplest answer to this question is that a Non UK casino is a casino that isn’t from the UK. These casinos are particularly noted for their relative lack of restrictions when compared with standard UK casinos, and they are a popular subsection of casinos that allow UK players to play games. You will generally find that a Non UK casino will have higher limits than casinos that are signed up with the UKGC. They will allow higher deposits, higher maximum bets and higher withdrawals than standard UK casinos. They also tend to offer better deposit bonuses and have excellent customer support structures. Of course, this all might seem to be burying the main point, which is what all of this has to do with Gamstop. If you know of Gamstop, you probably know that it restricts people who have expressed concerns over problem gambling from playing at UK casino sites. So why would you want to play at casinos that went against that? We’ll come to that in a moment. First, though… Why do people play at a Non UK casino? The popularity of Non UK casinos has only got a certain amount to do with the service Gamstop provides in and of itself. UK casinos are heavily restricted, which means that any UK player who wants to play without those restrictions needs to find a Non UK casino to play at. The kicker there is that every UK casino is signed up to the UKGC. At least, every legal casino, and you don’t want to play at illegal casinos. The reasons why go way beyond the obvious. Non UK slot sites have greater freedom to decide what they want to offer their customers, and this generally means that they will offer a much larger range of games. It’s not uncommon to see a Non UK casino with several thousand games, of which the majority will be slot games. However, there will also be plenty of table games, and in the case of Spicy Jackpots, there is also an excellent live casino. When we talk about Non UK casinos, we are referring specifically to casinos that are not licensed in the UK, but do hold gambling licences. These casinos are reliable and reputable, and they will look after your funds, make prompt payouts, and offer excellent customer service, including allowing you to self-exclude if you feel that you are experiencing a gambling problem. While a Non UK casino will offer someone who is self-excluded through Gamstop another way of betting, they are more popular with people who have not signed up to Gamstop, but want the greater level of freedom that comes with playing at Non UK casinos. What is the United Kingdom Gambling Commission? If you’ve come this far and this is the first you’ve ever heard of the UKGC, it may be the case that you are quite confused by now. From context it’s easy enough to put together the basics, but what do the UKGC and gamstop actually do? Gamstop is a service by the UKGC that UK bettors can sign up to when they feel they are experiencing gambling difficulties. If they find themselves unable to stop betting, and they are losing money to the point where it is a problem in their everyday lives, Gamstop exists to provide them with a simple and fully effective way to stay away from UK casinos. In short, Gamstop and the UKGC prevent people from playing at any casino that is under the jurisdiction of the UK government. This means that people can’t play at any UK-based casino, because all such casinos are covered by the UK Gambling Commission. There may be some unlicensed casinos operating in the UK, but they are doing so completely illegally, and to play there is hugely unsafe. How does the UK Gambling Commission work? For the UKGC to be effective, it must be applied to all casinos in the UK, so by law it is impossible for a casino to be operating in the UK, licensed by the UKGC, and not signed up to Gamstop. It is compulsory for UK betting sites. Gamstop works by essentially inserting a layer of security between you and the casino or betting site that you are trying to access. If you are signed up to Gamstop, and try to play at a UK licensed casino, you will see a message telling you that you are banned from the casino and unable to play there. You won’t get as far as the Welcome screen, less still be able to place any bets. Gamstop is not in the business of letting people know that there are alternatives to UK betting sites. People who sign up for Gamstop are, for the most part, ignorant of the existence of casinos outside the UK that accept UK customers. So when they are prevented from playing at UK casinos, as mandated by Gamstop, they are for all intents and purposes barred from playing anywhere. So why do Non UK casinos exist, and what is their purpose? Well, casinos generally exist in other countries. The UK Gambling Commission is not in a position to stop them offering services to UK customers. And as long as they are licensed, it is not impermissible for UK customers to play there. What does Gamstop do? When you sign up to Gamstop, you need to give a certain amount of information to the service, identifying you by name, address, and Date of Birth. This is the information that a UK online casino will hold on you and the information by which Gamstop will identify you when it contacts casinos on your behalf. You don’t need to contact the casinos or betting sites individually - that would take forever and would open you up to temptation; Gamstop will do it all automatically. After you have entered the information Gamstop needs from you, you will then be asked how long you want to remain excluded. There are three possible answers here. You can remain excluded for six months, one year, or five years. You will then be presented with an agreement to conclude online with Gamstop. On clicking to fulfill the agreement, your period of self-exclusion begins. Gamstop will contact every casino automatically, and the casinos will then begin implementing the exclusion on their sites. Generally, it takes a couple of hours to become final, so Gamstop advises you not to try to bet during this time. Now, here is the key point: When you click that you agree to the period of self-exclusion, Gamstop takes that very seriously. You have agreed to exclude yourself from online casinos, and you will be excluded. Even if you want to end this agreement, you can’t. Gamstop will not allow you to break the agreement. If you are trying to think of ways around the agreement, requests you can make, or anything you can do to end the self-exclusion, stop. It’s iron-clad. And it needs to be. Because if you were Gamstop, offering people a way out of problem gambling, and you then allowed them to end their agreement because they asked, you wouldn’t be doing your job. People in the grip of gambling addiction will look for any justification to allow them to bet just once more. If you’re excluded, by choice, for five years, and by the time four months of that has elapsed you feel like your problems have cleared and you’re ready to bet again, safely, you’ll still be excluded for the rest of that five-year period. Even if you’re completely justified in thinking that the causes of your problem have been dealt with and you can bet with a level head, you will be blocked for the next 56 months. And you can’t complain about that, because what if you were just saying that everything was fine so they’d let you bet again? Gamstop only has your word for it, and they’re going to listen to the first thing you told them: “I have a problem, and I need help”. This is how that help works. Advantages of Non UK casinos Taking all of the above into account, then, it is reasonable to ask what the benefits of casinos that aren’t from the UK are. The primary benefits are as follows… Better bonuses. These offshore casinos don’t have to pay the larger licensing fees involved with being a signatory of the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, nor do they have to pay UK taxes. They are usually in lower-tax jurisdictions, and they pass this saving on to customers. They’re still regulated. Yes, you might wonder what the risks are in betting at casinos that aren’t licensed in the UK, but they’re really not that major. Casinos located in Malta, Gibraltar and other such jurisdictions still have to work within the law - it’s not like they’re based in some lawless Wild West. Fewer KYC checks. These casinos will need you to make some effort to identify yourself but the tariff of proof is much lower than it is with UK casinos. Once you’re verified, you don’t need to jump through as many hoops. Disadvantages of Non UK casinos It’s not beneficial to generalise, because every casino makes its own plans and interprets laws in its own way. However, there are some disadvantages that are more common with non-UK casinos. Self-exclusion is long and difficult. There can be no denying that Gamstop is a hugely effective and convenient tool. With one click, you can put your problem gambling out of reach. When you’re betting at offshore casinos, there is no single organisation that can stop you from accessing those. You can usually self-exclude at each casino by request, but if you’re a member of lots of them, that can be a drawn-out process. Slower responses to complaints. If a casino is on Gamstop, it means it’s a member of the UKGC. That means if you have a complaint, you can apply pressure to resolve it by invoking the UKGC. If you’re not present in the country where the casino is located, though, you have less leverage to get them to do what you want. Best non UK Casino Games All in all, there is definitely a place for Non UK casinos. We would not recommend them to people experiencing current gambling problems, but as a way of escaping the often excessively strict regulations of the UKGC, they offer an excellent solution for non-problem bettors. onlinecasinos.site is a platform created by casino players for everyone.

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Benzinga

Buying gifts for men can be difficult, but there are ways to make the gift selection process easier. Remember, each man is different and will have various likes, hobbies and dislikes. If you’re looking for the best gifts for the man in your life, keep reading to view our holiday season gift guide for him. First, Take into Consideration These Tips on Buying the Best Gift for Any Man in Your Life No holiday gift guide would be complete without a quick discussion of things you should think about when buying gifts for him. To find the ideal gift for the man in your life, there are three things you can look for that will help you find something he'll love. Pay attention to his needs: Everyone has practical needs, but we don’t always tend to them. For example, someone may talk about needing a car wash kit so they don’t have to continue to go to the car wash but never buy one for themselves. Spend some time listening to your man to see whether you can identify anything he needs but hasn’t bought for himself. If you want to give a good gift, the No. 1 rule is that you give him something he will use and not put it on an empty shelf somewhere. Keep it simple: Men tend to like straightforward things, and that’s why you shouldn’t overthink the gift. Instead of complicating things, think about what would make his life easier or more enjoyable. For instance, if he is a music lover, you could give him tickets to his favorite concert or buy him that guitar he’s had his eye on. Notice what he likes to do and buy for himself: Does the man in your life have a? Does he have a habit of buying things that contribute to or grow his hobby? Noticing these things can make for great gift-giving ideas. If he has a hobby that he loves, give him a gift related to it. For example, does he play golf often? Get him a golf gift such as a replacement for the club he's always complaining about. Or, you could concentrate on the things he wants to do but hasn’t. Maybe you’ve heard him talk about wanting to try rock climbing — why not make his day and give him the gift of lessons? 10 Holiday Gift Ideas That Men Actually Want It’s time to get into the specifics. Here are some of the best holiday gifts for him. 1. Grill Set If the man you’re shopping for likes to cook outdoors, you have a lot of choices, but to make the gift special, why not opt for a grill set? Just like how pool players take their pool sticks seriously, any griller worth this salt understands that the tools he uses can make cooking that steak or hamburger even better. And if you want to make the gift even more special, consider personalizing it with his name or a funny saying. 2. Engraved Decanter Set If he likes to pour his drinks in style, an engraved decanter set could be the ideal gift. You can engrave the glasses with his initials, or engrave the decanter with his name or some other sentimental text. This gift is best for anyone who likes to entertain and wants to make a good impression when serving drinks. 3. Wallet Men carry a lot of important stuff in their wallets. A wallet not only needs to be practical and a size that will hold everything they carry, it also needs to match their style. Some men like simple leather wallets while others like metal wallets. If the man in your life needs a new wallet, make sure you understand his style and then wow him with a new one. 4. Watch Watches have come a long way, and if he hasn’t caught up to the times and still wears the same watch he wore a decade ago, it might be time for an upgrade. Pay attention to his style and select a watch that matches it. Would a leather band fit his style, or would a gold or silver band fit into his wardrobe and lifestyle? If he is adventurous, think about giving him a watchmaking kit so he can make his own unique watch. Watches make an excellent luxury gift for him, if you're looking for something a little more pricey. 5. Personalized Toiletry Bag If the man you are buying a gift for travels a lot, a custom toiletry bag could make a great personalized gift. You can find toiletry bags in leather in various colors or bags that are made from other types of materials. One hint if you want to buy the right style is to look at his luggage and match it as closely as you can. 5. Cigar Humidor If the man you’re buying for loves good cigars, he would likely love a good humidor to store them in. When searching for a humidor, be sure to think about the quality. A good-quality humidor will allow him to store the cigars and keep them fresh for months. 7. Laptop Bag Does he carry his laptop to and from work or when he travels? If so, a laptop bag could make a perfect gift. Look for a bag that matches his personality — whether it’s made from canvas, leather or another material — and ensure that it has enough pockets and compartments to hold the rest of his gear. This is a great tech gift for any man who carries his laptop with him. If you want to make it even more special, personalize it with his name. 8. Hot Sauce Set As a general rule, men love hot sauce. In fact, you likely know a man who has participated in a hot pepper-eating contest. If the man in your life loves hot sauce, a hot sauce set might make a well-appreciated unique gift. You can find sets that include various styles of hot sauce in many different types of bottles and containers. If you choose this gift, have fun with it and find one that matches his personality. If you can't find enough to complete a set you can use individual bottles as stocking stuffers! 9. Cooler If he likes to spend time at the beach, lake, pool party or campground, a cooler would make a great gift. You can get him a cooler that will keep his favorite canned beverages cool for days, or you could opt for a mini-cooler if he only needs it for a few hours. Just like with any other gift, if you personalize the gift it will make it that much more special to him. Plus, it will ensure that his cooler doesn’t get mixed up with his friends’ coolers. 10. Subscription Box If you want to give him a gift that keeps on giving, think about signing him up for a subscription box. You can find subscription boxes for beer lovers that will deliver a beer or wine of the month, movie collections for movie night enthusiasts, or even shaving essentials for the burly gentlemen. If you choose this type of gift, he will think of you every time a new box shows up in his mailbox! Yes, You Can Find the Perfect Gift for Him Finding unique gifts for men doesn’t have to be difficult. To find the perfect gift for him, focus on his personality, style and needs, and soon, you will know just what type of gift to buy. And don’t forget to get jewelry insurance if you choose fine jewelry as a gift. For instance, if you buy him an expensive watch and you make insurance a part of the gift, he will relax, knowing that any loss resulting from theft or damage will be covered.

Holiday Jewelry Buying Guide for Her

Benzinga

If you are looking for jewelry as the perfect gift for your girlfriend, wife, sister or friend, you have a lot to consider. After all, jewelry is a personal gift, and you can’t give her just any piece of jewelry. Instead, you’ll need to put a lot of thought into it to ensure that you give her a piece that she will love and wear for years. If you know you want to buy her jewelry but aren’t sure how to go forward, our holiday gift guide will help you find the best gifts. Buying the Perfect Gift for Your Special Someone Gift buying is an art; when you get that perfect gift, the recipient will remember it forever. And jewelry tops the list of great gifts because of all the options associated with it. For instance, you can give timeless pieces; you can customize jewelry to make it even more personal; you can purchase matching sets for friends or family; you can give permanent jewelry; and more. Even better is the fact that a gift of jewelry will last for years as long as it’s properly cared for. And if you want to take your holiday jewelry gift to the next level? Include the first year of jewelry insurance if you plan to give a piece of high-end jewelry. 5 Holiday Jewelry Gift Ideas While giving jewelry is personal because people have their own style, some traditional jewelry gifts appeal to everyone. You can make the gift special by keeping in mind the recipient’s style and how they like to wear their jewelry. Here are some unique gift ideas that will warm her heart during the holiday season. 1. Earrings If you’re looking for holiday gifts for her where you can get a little crazy, earrings are a great choice. Earrings are an ideal gift for people who like to express themselves in creative and unique ways. For instance, you can give an ear cuff or wrap perfectly sized hoops for the woman who loves the simplicity of thin gold. On the other hand, if she is more conservative in her dress, think about small diamonds or pearl earrings. 2. Rings When it comes to jewelry gifts, rings are in a special category of their own. Whether you are surprising her with a holiday proposal and an engagement ring or want to give her a ring that fits her everyday style, a ring will please even the most discerning woman in your life. You will have many options when it comes to rings. You can give a unique custom ring that draws attention, or you can buy an understated ring that looks expensive and classy. You will find many different price points when buying a ring. 3. Necklaces Giving her a necklace is a great choice because this type of jewelry gives her a chance to stand out in the crowd. You can give her a statement piece that draws attention or you can opt for an understated piece that is adorned with a single gem. You can also give a more traditional necklace such as a band of pearls or a long gold or silver chain. 4. Watches If you want to give a jewelry gift that combines beauty and practicality, a watch is a great choice. And you won’t be limited by only a few styles. You can opt for a classic watch with a thin gold band and understated face, or a unique watch that shows personality, or even go more modern and get an apple watch. Price is a factor with a watch gift, as well. You can choose an inexpensive watch or opt for a high-end watch. Either way, ensure that you choose one that fits her style and personality. 5. Bracelets Another great jewelry gift is a bracelet. Because these pieces of jewelry come in so many styles and colors, your choices are seemingly endless. You can give her a simple gold bracelet, or you can opt for a colorful bracelet made of various materials. Another great gift for her is a permanent bracelet. She will think of you every time she feels the gold touch her wrist. How to Pick the Right Piece of Jewelry As wonderful as gift jewelry is, if you select a piece that doesn’t go with her style, she may not wear it often. Here are some things you can do to ensure that you choose the right piece for her. Consider Her Style Preferences Every woman has a style of her own, and that style extends to her jewelry. Pay attention to the jewelry that she wears. Does she prefer gold or silver, maybe rose gold? Does she wear pieces with diamonds or does she prefer colored stones? Is her favorite jewelry made up of large, showy pieces, or does she prefer smaller, understated pieces? Does she view jewelry as an investment or does she prefer inexpensive jewelry that she can change often? The type of jewelry she wears now will give you insight into her style – and you can use that to select the ideal jewelry piece for her. Take into Account Her Lifestyle Her lifestyle should also take a front seat when selecting jewelry for her. For instance, does she like to wear her jewelry 24/7 or does she take it off every night? Does she work in a creative atmosphere where she can wear unique pieces, or does she work in an office where she needs to wear more modest pieces? Is she active? If so, you may not want to give her a dangly bracelet or necklace that will get in the way while she's working. Think Beyond Rings Although rings make an excellent holiday jewelry gift in many circumstances, there are some instances when it’s best to avoid them and think about a different type of jewelry. For instance, if you’re dating her and are not ready to make a commitment, a ring would not be an appropriate jewelry gift because it could too easily be associated with a wedding ring. Don’t Break the Bank It can be tempting to buy her the most expensive piece of jewelry in the showcase, but before you do that, think about your budget. If you keep the other tips in mind and select a piece of jewelry that fits her style and life, you can get away with a less expensive piece. By shopping around, you can find budget-friendly options that she will find stunning. Consult with Jewelers If you’re not certain about what type of jewelry to buy for her, it’s a good idea to meet with a few jewelers and talk to them about your choices. When you meet with them, ask about their bestsellers, which may inspire some ideas for your gift. If she has a jeweler, speak to them about her past preferences and that may lead you to a better idea of what she would love for this gift. Select the Perfect Holiday Jewelry Gift for Her Giving jewelry as gifts is a great way to let her know that you love and appreciate her. But it’s important to understand what type of jewelry she loves and what jewelry will fit into her lifestyle. Don’t forget to speak to jewelers if you aren’t sure how to select the perfect gift. And if you choose a high-end piece, be sure to insure the jewelry to ensure that it’s replaced if it’s lost, damaged or stolen. This post contains sponsored advertising content.

The Company With A Big Smile This Black Friday

Bruush Oral Care Inc.

Read The Latest Report About Brüush. Brüush Oral Care Inc. (NASDAQ: BRSH) is back - after a strong Thanksgiving weekend, the leading electric toothbrush company announced record revenue, with over $500,000 of revenues for the month of November, representing year-over-year growth of over 50%. The long, post-Thanksgiving weekend stretching from Black Friday to Cyber Monday is a frenetic time for shops and shoppers alike. Spending totaled $188 billion in 2020, and with things back to normal this year, consumer activity is returning to pre-pandemic levels. In response to modern consumer needs, much Black Friday sales activity has moved online - with a record-breaking $9.12 billion spent online this year - and Brüush is riding this digital market wave. The Vancouver-based toothbrush company, boasting a cutting-edge product and strong online presence, saw one of its strongest weekends of sales in company history this Thanksgiving. Brüush sells top-of-the-line electric toothbrushes and is looking to become a leader in an oral care market worth $33.7 billion. The company, which already has a big smile over its partnership with comedian Kevin Hart, is delighted with this significant weekend of sales and record numbers of Brüush subscriptions and individual purchases. Brüushing Ahead This Black Friday Brüush can be proud of a strong weekend with record revenue from sales that provide significant growth for the company. The company believes that it is poised to become a leading provider of oral hygiene products going forward. As well as its strong individual kit sales, the company saw a boom in its subscription service, with 35,000 subscribers versus 28,000 before its IPO in August. The company’s individual toothbrush kits come with an electric brush and 3 replaceable heads, while its highly affordable subscription service provides 3 replacement heads every 6 months for only $21.60. Brüush’s mid-range pricing - with kits starting at only $80 - makes its brushes an attractive option compared with competitors. These include electric brushes from Oral B, owned by Procter and Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Koninklijke Philips ’ (NYSE: PHG) product, Sonicare. Along with its affordable price tag, Brüush offers a premium product that it claims gives the best teeth cleaning in the market. The Brüush brushes at 42,000 strokes per minute - compared with the average electric brush that brushes just 30,000 times - and removes over 20% more plaque than a manual brush. Its batteries last an industry-leading 4 weeks on a single charge, and the brushes have a 2-year warranty, though the company is confident it won’t be needed. The mid-range prices that provide top-quality oral hygiene results - along with savvy digital marketing - make Brüush popular among millennials, with 18-45-year-olds forming the largest segment of the company's customer base. Building on its resounding Thanksgiving successes, Brüush reports it will be launching a range of oral hygiene products in 2023 to complement its toothbrushes, including a line of toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and more.
