Favorite Metro Food and Spirits Hot Spot Gets LED Sign Upgrade

Posted by Electro-Matic on Dec 10, 2018 5:01:51 PM
 
Vivio’s II food & spirits is a sports bar in Warren, MI that features a full bar with their world famous Bloody Marys, 26 beers on tap with rotating craft brews, as well as a menu loaded with home-cooked comfort foods and daily specials.

When they were looking to revamp their image, showcase their new menu, advertise daily specials, promote upcoming events, and live music on the weekends, they looked into upgrading their sign out front. Vivio’s previously had a back lit, changeable sign that was only updated when someone climbed a ladder to change, by hand. They were looking for the ability to update their messaging, add images and logos to their new sign, without the manual labor behind it. That’s when they decided on a full color, 11mm LED Display from Electro-Matic, it allowed them to do just that.

Both Steve Alanis, Owner and Beau Johnson, GM had the exact same to thing about their new LED Display ‘We couldn’t believe the immediate impact the display had on our business. We had customers coming into the bar and telling us, they didn’t even know we were here, even though they may have passed us everyday! It is exactly what we were hoping for and needed out of this new sign’.
Now, when you pass by this Vivio’s location in Warren, you will be sure to notice their full color display.
