Twinsburg, OH- April 1, 2013 — CRUNK!!! Energy Drink has significantly strengthened its distribution network with the addition of new partners both in the United States and Internationally. The Southeast has historically been one of the stronger markets for CRUNK!!! and the product is again becoming widely available in stores throughout that region. Since the new parent company, Solvi Acquisition, LLC of Twinsburg, OH acquired the Brand in April 2012, CRUNK!!! has experienced a re-birth and strong expansion.
Tennessee Crown based in Chattanooga added the CRUNK!!! line to its beverage portfolio in late 2012 and is distributing the entire collection of flavors throughout the Chattanooga market. United-Johnson Brothers of Alabama recently added the counties in the southeast portion of the state and now has a territorial footprint which includes all 67 counties in Alabama.
Since the start of 2013, the company has partnered with several new distributors including L & V Wholesale (dba United Wholesale & Nutrition) whose area of coverage spans from West Palm Beach to the Florida Keys. A & E Wholesale in Tallahassee is currently launching CRUNK!!! Energy Drink in North Central Florida, while additional distribution in the balance of the state will be announced soon. CRUNK!!! is now also available in stores throughout Louisiana, carrying over into Mississippi and southern Arkansas thanks to a newly established partnership with NP Distributing out of Winnsboro, LA.
In addition to the expanded presence in the Southeast, CRUNK!!! Energy Drink availability has also been established as a result of partnerships with Golden Beverage Company based in Ogden, UT and Badger Distribution in Waukesha, WI. On the international front, CRUNK!!! is now available in Mexico through a partnership with Tiendas Sindicales. This Superstore Grocery Chain in Mexico’s free Trade Zone caters to 1.5 million factory workers in 1,500 Maquiladora factories mostly owned by American Fortune 500 companies.
“We are very pleased with the new partnerships we are forming and the growth CRUNK!!! Energy Drink is experiencing”, said Jon Gunnerson, CEO. “This is an exciting time for the Brand and we are very optimistic for continued expansion throughout the 2013 year.”
