Case Study - Moscow Mule Mugs

custom moscow mule mugs
Most Popular Items at Restaurants & Bars

Moscow Mule Mugs are one of the most popular items at restaurants and bars. RP & Associates is one of the leading suppliers of Mule Mugs in the US, and we also develop and manufacture Custom Moscow Mule Mugs for our clients.


The Benihana restaurant company, which owns 116 restaurants around the world, decided to use our Moscow mule mug to elevate their customer's unique experience. Benihana decided to stand out; they took our classic Moscow mule style and collaborated with our designers to create a custom designed mug that was shaped as a Chef’s hat. Benihana loved the concept so much that they decided to feature the original mule mug at all of their locations.

Melting Pot

Another unique way our mule mug was completely customized was with The Melting Pot restaurant chain. The Melting Pot is known for their signature fondue’s so we partnered with them to create a mule mug that perfectly resembled the signature melting pot.

Figenza Vodka

Instead of completely creating an entirely new Moscow mule mold from scratch, we were able to come up with another creative solution with some unique handle options. Figenza Vodka joined with RP to create a tailor-made piece with the Figenza mug which features a leaf as the handle. RP also paired with a popular steak house chain by personalizing the mule mug with specially made steak knife handles.

Boost Your Brand Awareness with Original Concepts

Here at RP&Associates,Inc. we believe in thinking outside of the box. We believe in creating experimental products that are actually worth remembering. How did we get started with this belief? Our fearless and to say the least, unique leader, Rich Pola has an imagination much different than your average CEO.

Rich has created The Grub Tub; you might’ve heard of it or even better yet got to experience it in person. Whether you’ve seen it on social media sites such as The Fat Jewish or featured on Fox sports, the grub tub has become a product that you are guaranteed to remember. You know how frustrating it is to be at an event or stadium and have to manage holding your food and drink and not spilling? Yeah, we got that feeling too. Rich took this annoyance we have all faced and decided to create something useful; a solution to carrying your food and beverage in one hand.

Is the Grub Tub the quintessential solution to your food and beverage convenience? I’d say being dubbed, “the greatest invention in food service since man discovered fire”, would be a nice start. We love being able to cheer on our favorite teams or slap hands with our buds while not having to worry about spilling. How would you like to experience the grub tub at your next big event and become a pioneer for successful brand awareness?
