“XYIENCE has tremendous brand awareness and marketing support,” says Chris Sides, United Distributors’ general manager over convenience stores. Sides, who has been in the beverage business for 15 years and knows the value of XYIENCE’s marketing alliances, such as its sponsorship of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), says, “The fact that [Xenergy] is on television during UFC fights on Spike TV and Pay-Per-View means that XYIENCE is getting its name out there for us. XYIENCE’s branding is everywhere, so it’s like having an additional advertising campaign place.” That type of exposure and support, according to Sides, makes United’s retailers eager to stock their shelves with Xenergy.
According to Reuben Rios, XYIENCE vice president of U.S. sales, landing United Distributors, Inc., is a pivotal point for the brand. “We’re thrilled about our relationship with United Distributors. In addition to being now being aligned with a top-notch distributor, United opens the door for XYIENCE in Georgia, which is a very important market because it’s an integral part of establishing our brand in the Southeast,” says Rios. “With a presence in Georgia, we can continue to increase the visibility of our brand in that region of the country,” he says.
Through televised broadcasts of UFC events, the XYIENCE brand reaches some 100 million-television households in North America. As a part of XYIENCE’s UFC sponsorship relationship, its logo receives prime positioning on the mat and bumpers of the octagon. This often results in a fight’s critical moments taking place on or next to the XYIENCE and Xenergy logos, and translates into millions of viewer impressions for XYIENCE. Internationally, XYIENCE reaches more than 420 million television households via UFC broadcasts and Pay-Per-View broadcasts.
