Apple Rush expects the demand, for its cans alone, to increase sales by 200%, in the first year of distribution. In anticipation of this demand, the Company has developed a new Fridge 12-Pack ( which it will begin marketing to Retail Grocery Chains during the first Quarter of 2010. The Fridge 12-Pack will initially be designed for its four best selling flavors: Original Apple, Pomegranate, Cranberry and Black Cherry. Many Grocery Chains have already indicated their desire to be a part of this new program when it rolls out.
