“All of our store owners have heard of drank® and it’s success throughout other parts of the country,” said Greg Otto, owner and president of Incense Specialties Inc. “Much like the rest of the country, Florida residents are stressed to the gills, and this heat isn’t making things any easier! We’re pleased to bring them a product that will cool them off and relax them without turning to alcohol.”
“drank® has been in the Southeast for some time, but as is the case with many regions, it is time to expand,” said Peter Bianchi, CEO of Innovative Beverage Group. “Our Facebook fans have been clamoring for the tall purple can to be available in more areas in Florida. By inking this distribution deal with ISI, we not only enter into an agreement with a terrific partner, we reward our fans for their support and determination in bringing drank® to their cities.”
drank® is the antithesis of the herd of energy drinks crowding the functional beverage sector. With a slogan of “slow your roll®,” this lightly carbonated relaxation product uses melatonin, valerian root and rose hips to provide a relaxing effect for consumers. Since launching drank® to select markets in early 2008, it has become the go-to product for people looking to relax their mind and body.
