“After recent national media coverage on programs including Good Morning America, The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien and the Fox News Network, consumers from across California have been calling our offices looking for a local retailer that carries drank(TM),” said Peter Bianchi, CEO of Innovative Beverage Group. “By signing a distribution deal with 5 Star, which has established relationships with stores, schools, markets and more, we are now able to provide San Diegans with this popular beverage and a proven way to relax and take the edge off.”
