Testimonials

  • Ashley, Badger Wine & Spirits

    I have known Aras’ owner, Sara O’Driscoll, for 12 yeras from working together in the beverage industry. She knows this industry through and through and when she established Aras Promotions in 2006, there was no doubt she was going to run the most elite agency in the state of Wisconsin. I worked closely with Sara and her team for 7 years when I was the Key Account Manager at Badger Liquor. I also worked with Aras when I was the Regional Manager at Phillips Distilling Company. Aras Promotions, hands down is the most professional, talented, and reliable agency I have ever worked with and I would recommend them to any company looking to hire promotional talent.

  • Paul, PS Capital Partners

    We have worked with Aras Promotions (or as we call the firm, “Sara and her ladies”) for several years with great success. Aras provides our firm with elegant, sophisticated hostesses who have the ability to relate and mingle with a wide range of highly experienced business professionals. Many of our colleagues have come to expect “Sara and her ladies” at any event we host. We have no plans to disappoint and neither will you if you utilize Aras.

  • Robert, Pernod Ricard

    Aras is the most organized promotion agency in Wisconsin hands down. Whether it’s a new product, or your go-to top seller, they have the models needed to gain attention from consumers. It’s been a pleasure working with Aras for four years now, and I can’t imagine promoting with anyone else. The best looking, and most knowledgeable, talent in the industry!

  • Tom, Sazerac

    The most difficult thing to find as a supplier for the on/off premise trade is a promotional company who is able to cover your whole territory and be reliable. Many occasions there are cities/towns promotional companies do not cover and have never planned to cover because they are too small and to not have the people to do it. Aras Promotions is not one of those companies. I have worked with Aras Promotions for over 5 years now, not only are they an amazing company to deal with, they are professional, caring and know what they are doing. Their employees are trained well, are very knowledgeable and know how to sell product. They are willing to go that extra mile for you, to make sure everything is taken care of and in the end you are happy with their services. If you are looking for a promotional company to help sell product and make consumers knowledgeable, than Aras Promotions is your company hands down. If it was not for Aras Promotions, I am not sure my brands would be as successful in the Wisconsin market as they are today.

  • Jeff Pohl, August Schell Brewing Company

    Sara and all her fellow employees at Aras Promotions know the true meaning of the word customer service. In addition I have found that the product she puts out in the marketplace to be professional and very reliable. I am and will continue to be a client of Aras Promotions. I am proud to be asked to speak on Aras’s behalf and would recommend them to anybody that needs to get their product sampled in the marketplace.

  • Kelly, Hasse Pie Liqueur

    We have worked with Aras promotions for over 4 years now. We have never had to worry about the execution of promotions with Aras. Their staff is always well educated with our products, knowing how to get the customers excited about Hasse’e Pie Liqueur. Aras staff is always on time, interacts with the venues staff in a professional manner, and makes sure everything about the promotions is completed beyond our expectations.
