COLUMBUS, Ohio– O2, maker of a revolutionary line of oxygenated post-workout recovery beverages, has announced significant new distribution gains, expanding to 15,000 points of distribution with leading grocery retailers Kroger, Sprouts Farmers Market, and Publix in addition to a partnership with Presence Marketing as an OmniPresence brand.
O2’s Kroger footprint has doubled to ten key Kroger districts in sixteen states, including new distribution in Illinois, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, North Carolina and Texas, placing the brand in approximately 1,000 Kroger stores. O2 has also launched chain-wide with leading natural grocery retailer Sprouts Farmers Market, available in both the grocery and Grab & Go sets.

We’re incredibly honored to be able to expand with our trusted partners at Kroger and build strong new partnerships with Sprouts Farmers Market and Publix,” said Dave Colina, CEO and founder of O2.
To support the accelerated growth of their grocery business, O2 also announced its new partnership with Presence Marketing, the nation’s largest independent and natural food broker.
“As we’ve grown, we’ve been intentional about our growth at grocery, often prioritizing consumer fit over distribution growth. Once we decided to accelerate our grocery business, we knew Presence would be an ideal partner given their reputation and history of success. We’re excited about our partnership and its ability to bring our mission to life at retail,” said Colina.
