SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwired – July 21, 2015) – Clearly Kombucha®, one of America’s leading kombucha brands, announced today that it will surpass its 1,000th store mark this summer. This milestone was reached following the Northern California company’s expansion into more than 230 stores in 3 new retail banners. Starting this July, the light-hearted, light-tasting kombucha will be available in 1,037 stores in 9 banners across 34 states. This expansion positions the company as one of the fastest growing kombucha players in the marketplace.
Caleb Cargle, President of Clearly Kombucha remarks on the company’s rapid expansion: “For the last five years we’ve laid the groundwork for growth by perfecting an authentic, light-tasting and refreshing kombucha that is brewed for the mainstream consumer. Knowing that a great tasting product was key, we’ve custom built our plant to scale with the rising demand for our kombucha across the country.”
According to Alison Zarrow, CEO of Clearly Kombucha, the fuel behind the kombucha company’s growth relates to its consumers. “Clearly Kombucha is light and refreshing in both its taste and its branding. Our booch appeals to a wide audience, many of whom are switching to healthier options from traditionally sugary and diet beverages.” Zarrow stresses that Clearly Kombucha has developed a strong fan base across the country. “A big reason for new retailers choosing Clearly Kombucha is the pull from our fans, many of whom have learned about us on social media.” She adds that as Clearly Kombucha enters new markets, it will be leading the charge of converting “non-boochers” (people who don’t yet like kombucha) into “boochers.”
Clearly Kombucha is available in 9 major retailers including Sprouts Farmers Market, Ralphs, Safeway, Whole Foods Market, PCC Natural Markets, Bristol Farms, New Leaf Community Markets, and is also available online. A complete listing of retail locations is available atwww.clearlykombucha.com.
