“HOP Shops’ Disco Bathrooms: One Year Later, Still Groovin’ Strong!”

Can you believe it’s already been a year since we unveiled our revolutionary Disco Bathrooms? Yes, you heard that right – bathrooms that transform you into another time with just the push of a button! Since the debut, these funky facilities have taken the world by storm, captivating hearts, and shaking booties all across Northern Kentucky and beyond.  Tap on to see how the last 12 months evolved

It all started with a spark of inspiration from Damon Bail, the VP of Retail Operations & Marketing, who stumbled upon a video featuring a restroom disco in a foreign restaurant. Seeing the potential for something truly special, Damon envisioned bringing this unexpected delight to the world of convenience stores. And Bam, the idea for HOP Shops’ Disco Bathrooms was born.

On February 17, 2023, history was made as the very first Disco Bathrooms were launched at the Verona HOP Shops. With iconic tunes like “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees setting the mood, customers found themselves grooving in a whole new way while taking care of business. And the rest, as they say, is history.

From TikTok sensations to local news features, the Disco Bathrooms quickly became a cultural phenomenon. One particularly memorable moment was when our beloved frog mascot, Hopper, made his own viral appearance in the Verona disco bathroom, proving that even frogs know how to bust a move.

As the disco fever spread, more HOP Shops locations joined the party, each with its own signature song to keep the vibes flowing. From Rihanna’s “Diamonds” in Florence to Abba’s “Dancing Queen” in Carrollton, every Disco Bathroom had its own unique flair, adding to the magic of the experience.

But it wasn’t just about the music and flashing lights – the Disco Bathrooms became a place of joy, laughter, and even inspiration. Scott Blandford’s incredible weight loss stories and encouragment of exercising, documented through selfie videos in the mirror, showed the power of positivity and self-expression. And let’s not forget about Alex Hudson, who turned her love for the Disco Bathrooms into a mission of self-acceptance and empowerment, along with a disco tour.

The media couldn’t get enough of the Disco Bathrooms.  From local radio shows to national television, everyone wanted to get a glimpse of the bathroom dance revolution happening right here in Kentucky.

And just when we thought things couldn’t get any groovier, we made history once again with the first-ever Disco Bathroom wedding on Valentine’s Day. Logen & Tiana said “I do” surrounded by disco lights and the infectious energy of HOP Shops’ most beloved creation.

As we celebrate one year of Disco Bathrooms, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has danced, laughed, and shared in the joy with us. Whether you’re a TikTok sensation or a loyal customer, you’ve helped make the Disco Bathrooms a symbol of fun and positivity in our communities.

So here’s to another year of disco delights, unforgettable moments, and plenty more surprises waiting behind that red button. Let’s keep the party going, because at HOP Shops, every trip to the bathroom is a dance party worth celebrating!
