XYIENCE Gains Spot on Classic Distributing and Beverage Group’s Roster

L

AS VEGAS, NEV. (April 2, 2009) XYIENCE announces that a new agreement with Classic Distributing and Beverage Group, distributor of brands like Coors, Corona and Voss Water, means a substantial increase in the Southern California market for its energy drink brand, Xenergy, the official energy drink sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). The relationship will yield a greater presence for Xenergy, specifically in convenience store chains like 7-Eleven, as well as another 10,000 independent retailers. Classic’s relationship with Monster ended in December 2008, and capturing that slot enables Xenergy to connect with a consumer base that includes a high concentration of UFC fans. In an article published in late 2008, the L.A. Times deemed the area the “epicenter of mixed martial arts.”



To kick off the relationship, on March 31, Classic welcomed UFC fighter Joe Stevenson, a XYIENCE athlete ambassador, to its City of Industry location. Stevenson, a former UFC welterweight division champion and star of “The Ultimate Fighter” television series, signed autographs and discussed his career as a fighter during a private event attended by Classic’s sales force, management and key accounts.



“Classic’s selection of Xenergy to fill Monster’s seat is a testament to both the quality of our product and the power of our partnership with the UFC. It’s no secret that gaining more shelf space in the Southern California market is a key indicator of a brand’s success. Xenergy already has an established rapport with a huge number of mixed martial arts fans in this region,” explains Csaba Reider, XYIENCE CEO and president. “We have complete confidence that our product’s taste coupled with its strong brand awareness in Southern California will translate to successful sales figures in the months ahead.”



XYIENCE recently added several Costco Business Centers to its list of Xenergy retailers, including three California locations.
