IRVINE, Calif. — True Drinks, Inc. (OTCQB: TRUU), a healthy beverage provider with major entertainment and media company licensing agreements for use of their characters on its proprietary, patented bottles, today announced that AquaBall™ Naturally Flavored Water will be sold in New York City via a distribution agreement with Drink King Distributing.
True Drinks will now have AquaBall available in the five New York City boroughs and neighboring counties in New York and New Jersey. Drink King Distributing specializes in developing emerging brands with daily service to approximately 10,000 retail outsets including major chain stores, and up-and-down the street outlets, in New York City. Drink King has facilities in Brooklyn, Lindenhurst, NY and Edison, NJ. They currently run 52 daily routes in New Jersey, the 5 boroughs of New York City, Long Island, and Westchester. True Drinks anticipates not only additional volume coming from our new partnership, but also the exposure of the AquaBall brand into this very high-profile market.
“True Drinks has been focused on hitting two critical objectives in the next 18 months, including getting to monthly breakeven and increasing our market share to 3-5% of the kids drink category estimated at $1.2B annually. This partnership will play a major role in achieving these two targets,” commented True Drink’s CEO Lance Leonard. “There are two major markets that every beverage company wants to dominate, New York and Los Angeles. We have accomplished our goal in the west coast and now look forward to doing the same on the east coast.”
Salvatore Salvato, Vice President/GM at Drink King Distributing, added, “Drink King Distributing is excited to bring AquaBall to the NY/NJ market. When you compare AquaBall to the other products in the category, AquaBall stands alone. We feel it is important for children to have great tasting healthy beverage alternatives, and, for that reason, AquaBall is a great addition to our line up.”
