Kronik adds distribution in Arizona


HOENIX, AZ. – KroniCo, LLC. The makers of KRONIK ENERGY and a pioneer in the growing energy drink segment, has announced a strategic partnership with The Nackard Bottling Co., based in Flagstaff, Arizona. The agreement will provide sales support and distribution of KRONIK brand energy drinks. The Nackard Bottling Co. does business as the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of Flagstaff. Nackard has held the soft drink franchise since 1943 and was selected as the Donald M. Kendal Bottler of the Year in 2002 and nominated in 2003; which no other single franchise bottler has accomplished.

As a result of this agreement, KRONIK’s full line of energy drinks will be distributed by Nackard across most of Arizona. This year’s expansion into Cochise and Yuma counties has made the Nackard Cos. the largest beverage producer and distributor in rural Arizona – a territory of some 90,000 square miles. To support that growing market, Nackard opened a new state-of-the-art, 50,000-square-foot facility in central Arizona. Servicing all three Nackard businesses, this new center will reduce delivery mileage for trucks serving Yavapai, La Paz, Mohave and Yuma counties – areas that account for much of rural Arizona’s growth, he says. The addition of Nackard Bottling Co. accelerates and solidifies KroniCo’s expansion effort in these areas.

Ben Gregg, CEO of KroniCo, LLC. stated, “We are focused on strategic distribution agreements with quality distributors”. This agreement will strengthen KRONIK ENERGY’s distribution, targeting convenience, grocery, and drug stores, as well as supporting KRONIK’s current retail sales. Nackard Bottling Co., services thousands of distribution points, has a strong supermarket chain presence, and a deep commitment to servicing its customers. “We are very excited to work with such a historic and well respected company like Nackard” Says, Gregg.

The KRONIK ENERGY lineup features four delicious flavors, including “Blue Citrus” (Tropical). Each flavor contains KRONIK’s “Top-Tier” blend of energy ingredients and is available in either Regular (sugared) or Low-Carb (Splenda) versions. All Low-Carb varieties include additional herbal supplements designed to help boost metabolism and curb hunger.


Headquartered in Phoenix, Az., the KRONIK ENERGY brand was created in 2003 before the term “Energy Drink” became a household word. The company is looking to expand its network of retailers and distributors. With several new products currently in development, KRONIK ENERGY is looking to expand its product line as well.
