How it all began
Swig got its start in 2010 in Saint George, Utah. Owner and Founder Nicole Tanner was brainstorming with her husband one night about possible business ideas. He suggested a drive-by drink shop, something they both agreed could be successful. They opened their first location across the street from Dixie State University in April of 2010.
Since it’s opening it has been very popular with residents and tourists alike. Customers appreciate the convenience and the variety. Whether you need a drink to cool off or just a small treat, Swig has you covered. We have become so popular that people on our Facebook page are asking us to set up a location in Salt Lake City all the time. We’ve even been featured in the news:
The popularity forced us to find and open a new location as fast as we could. In the spring of 2013 we opened our second location on Saint George Boulevard. And don’t worry… plenty more are on the way!
“We knew that there was a need for a good, fun drive-thru, and we knew that there were other people out there, like us, that enjoyed a good fountain drink,” says Tanner. And the name? It was inspired by a single question when her husband simply asked, “Can I have a swig of your drink?”
