New business ideas by a cool bar of Puerto Cruz Tenerife Spain.

New business ideas were not on our mind when my friend César and I strolled through the old tourist hub of Puerto de la Cruz Spain. César F.Real Real was merely interested to see how much the recession of 2009 had rubbed off on the oldest Tenerife resort.

Then we discovered a real cool bar of Tenerife.

The new business ideas which had been applied set it apart from others.

The cool bar called La Ventita

A innocent enough cool bar with a small table and two chairs left the only clue pointing to a place for food and drink.

It was a tapas bar or lets say a place for Tenerife starters and typical Spanish snacks...

Contrary to the impression, which you get from the image depicted beside, illumination was perfect to even shoot a photo inside. The brand new business innovation had only been introduced, a few days ago. The name display of La Ventita was still missing outside.

2011 year of business innovation

La Ventita bar shop was a striking example of much business innovation of the year 2011.

Just imagine, that its new business approach allowed for an old antique scale within a "new Millenium" shop.

La Ventita bar had created a Tenerife shop at the same time.

Therefore, as much a cool shop as a cool bar for tourists and locals alike had been born.

What made this Puerto Cruz small business venture for Tenerife shopping such a novelty which was unheard of?

Business innovation history

Drastic changes of times and circumstances caused new business ideas to be reinvented because of the new recession of 2009.

Often, a new smart business begins after a stale money making venture had been closed down.

However, it is irrelevant here, what was in the place of La Ventita before.

New business concept by innovative strategies

  • A bar within a Tenerife shop
  • An old wine barrel hints a bar to draw you in
  • Vegetable or fruit such as bananas with gay colors to attract
  • A shop which is open on a Sunday during Siesta

Would you expect such strategies by a shop with bar around the corner from Calle Quintana?

Therefor, guess how surprised we were, when a friendly lady of this smart business venture approached us. A long black waiter apron was part of her outfit.

Perhaps nowadays, you noticed such clothes' accessories by waitresses. The color of that protective garment is a new fashion statement for new business ideas in Spain.

The sympathetic Tinerfeña invited us in to see her cool bar La Ventita business innovation.

Indeed, she was mighty proud of all the new business ideas which were put to the test inside.

They were all over the place.

In fact, the ideas could not only be seen, touched, tasted and compared. They could even be bought.

Priceless new original gifts

Garchanzos pastry jar innovative gift

Don't we all want innovative gifts?

Unfortunately this Tenerife bar of Puerto de la Cruz  Spain is history now. It didn't stand the test of time, as the owners were not prepared to do any marketing.

They sold violet petal jam which was an ideal gift.

You could purchase Garchanzos pastry. This was a novelty which looked like a mousse made of flat yellow peas. Mind many more new business ideas were physically exhibited on La Ventita's shelves. They helped the adventurous shopper to score gifts they would have never dreamed about.

Order take-away banana gift parcels...

Mind those banana farms, by the way... They leave more room for new business ideas, as they are an icon for everything tropical or subtropical, indeed.

One of cool new ideas made use of the yellow fruit which is sent to some Tenerife hotels. The gift wrapped bananas are ready to take for the tourist who returns overseas. Most hotels offer this charming banana service to you.

Decorative shelving for top wine storage

Wine shelving new idea innovating shelving

If you hadn't noticed the innovative wine shelving for storage, which is shown as a close up beside, also look at yet another shop image below...

The brilliant method where many of the exquisite wines of the shop were held in best horizontal position took up minimum space.

A fairly long bar was behind La Ventita's counter. A few tables with chairs were next to it.

Display shelves with innovative products tapas and gifts

More display shelves, besides those for the novelty wine storage were on the wall opposite the bar. Those were indeed part of the best new business ideas of this shop. They were taking up a big wall surface, but no cubic meterage of this business novelty bar. There, you could encounter many little tapas for sale, as well. Most were in small glass containers. All of them looked like they harbored home made goodies inside.

Some of the exotic novelty products seemed to be of Portuguese or Brazilian origin, such as the big bottles which were named Cortijo of Suerte Alta Coupage Natural and Alta do buena. There was no need to translate, as you were welcome to taste first. Those bottles seemed to hide some miracle drink which promised something like luck or eternal youth, you name it. They were products by new business ideas for fantasy and fun...

You could buy the most astounding novelty jams, paté, marmalade and tinned fish, most of which were business innovation products...

There is nothing new about selling Tapas in a shop. But there is always room for unheard of Tapas novelties, such as seen above. By the way, the above list is not showing the entire stock.

In fact, César and I were overwhelmed by so much new and cool business innovation, as discovered in this Tenerife shop.

However in vain, we expected future food novelties to crown the wall shelves of La Ventita Bar.

This bar with shop was a real treasure trove of the wonderland of food.

Little party gifts of innovative jams and other food

Bar shop packaging to recycle

The little jars were perfect little party gifts to buy for celebrations.

Sure, they also made good Tenerife souvenirs.

In fact, the packaging and presentation of all the shop's products were eco friendly.

Only glass and paper which may be recycled was part of them.

Care for the environment which is taken seriously at Punta Brava of Puerto de la Cruz is a motto in this bar shop La Ventita of Spain.

Permanent wine tasting Tenerife

Menue blackboard La Ventita Bar and Shop

You could take a seat by the bar inside or outside. There you could sample a glass of Tajinaste wine.

This Tenerife red wine from La Orotava has been much praised before by the web of the holiday home in Tenerife insider.

Discover the Tajinaste wine bar price of January 2011 displayed on the menu black board outside.

Also, there were some other goodies for sale in the shop of the numerous new business ideas Spain. Everything remained to be discovered by the discerning guests of this Puerto Cruz Tenerife bar.

Others introduced new business ideas, which may be dictated by public demand. Mind the placing of tables and chairs by the road side is one of them. The anti smoking law caused it.

Smart business without best shop location

Unfortunately, the new shop La Ventita which was a little off the beaten track of the Puerto Cruz hub was not so easy to be found. Indeed, all its cool business ideas were wasted. Otherwise, that novelty store was a good example of smart business innovation.

Even its name was good. In fact, it was cute.
