HOUSTON, TX, Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: MINE), has received its initial commercial purchase order from Drink King Distributing to supply the new zero-calorie formula of VitaminFIZZ®, in sleek 17 ounce bottles, in the New York Market.
Due to this initial purchase order and distribution deal, Minerco anticipates the presence of VitaminFIZZ® in the New York Market to grow at a very quick pace. Drink King currently runs over 50 daily routes in New Jersey, the 5 boroughs of New York City, Long Island, and Westchester. Drink King offers daily service to approximately 10,000 retail outlets including major chain stores, in New York City. Drink King has facilities in Brooklyn, Lindenhurst, NY and Edison, NJ.
"Drink King is excited to bring Vitamin Fizz to the Metro NY market," said Sal Salvato, Vice President / GM of Drink King Distributing. "NY has some of the most well informed consumers seeking healthy, better for you refreshment options. For that reason we feel Vitamin Fizz is a great addition to the Drink King portfolio."
The leadership of Drink King has over 60 years combined experience and includes industry veteran Peter Strahm. Before starting Drink King, Strahm worked with major beverage brands that include Pepsi, Snapple, Street King and Red Bull. Peter is also known for helping to put Jones Soda on the map as their VP of Sales in 1998 and 1999.
"Drink King is one of the fastest growing distributers in the Northeast, and we are very fortunate to have Drink King on board as we look to dominate the New York marketplace," said V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "They are passionate about working with emerging brands, especially VitaminFIZZ®, and there is no distribution partner better suited to help deliver value to our shareholders and refreshment to our customers. Strahm, Salvato, and the entire Drink King team are invaluable additions to our team."
The initial, completed production run of VitaminFIZZ® was bottled in New York. All three flavors will be on retailers' shelves within days in New York, closely followed by Southern California locations. Rollouts in other top markets are planned in the coming months. The locations will be available on the VitaminFIZZ® website and updates will be made regularly.
