Are You Cinco de Mayo Ready?


Let's start with why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the first place.

Cinco de Mayo (the fifth of May) is an annual holiday where we celebrate Mexico's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.


Here are three reasons why you should be Cinco de Mayo ready:

  1. Nearly 1 in 2 consumers expect to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in 2022

  2. 2 in 5 intend to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by going out for food or drinks

  3. 3 in 5 intend to purchase alcohol for Cinco de Mayo in 2022
