HOUSTON, and SPRINGFIELD, Mo., March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Innovative Beverage Group Holdings, Inc. (OTC.PK: IBGH) announced today that it has signed a deal with Wil Fischer Companies to expand distribution of its proprietary product, drank(TM), the world’s first extreme relaxation beverage, to the Southwest region of Missouri. Wil Fischer Companies is the Anheuser-Busch(R) supplier in the region with exclusive rights to distribute Budweiser(R). Established in 1966, the company has developed relationships with more than 750 on-and off-premise accounts including grocery chains, convenience stores, restaurants and other retailers in the region.
“This is an innovative and cutting-edge new product that leads the way for an exciting new category in the beverage industry,” said Jonathan Paulie, Director of Brand Management, of Wil Fisher Companies. “Since there is no other non-alcoholic beverage like it in the market, we decided it would be a great addition to our lineup. We began stocking drank(TM) in key accounts this week and expect that it will be widely-available to consumers throughout Southwest Missouri in the near future.”
drank(TM) is the antithesis of the herd of energy drinks crowding the functional beverage sector. With a slogan of “slow your roll(TM),” this lightly carbonated relaxation beverage is infused with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips to provide a relaxing effect. Since launching in select markets in early 2008, drank(TM) has quickly become the go-to beverage for people looking to relax their mind and body.
