HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), has retained Spartan Distribution and initiated delivery of VitaminFIZZ® to the Las Vegas market. Currently, the sleek 17 ounce bottles are available in select prime locations in Las Vegas with a planned market test to include approximately 500 accounts in 2015.
Las Vegas is the third major market for VitaminFIZZ. The New York City and Southern California markets have proven the viability, and now the success, of the VitaminFIZZ brand. The enhanced sparkling water is now available in over 1,000 locations including major retailers like Walgreens, Kmart in Southern California and Gristedes Supermarkets in New York. Consumers can quickly find their closest VitaminFIZZ location at www.vitamin-fizz.com/stores.html. Consumers can also purchase all six flavors on Amazon.com.
"The Las Vegas market is very quick to adopt healthier alternatives to sugar-laden sodas and extreme caffeine energy drinks," said Spartan Distribution President, Greg Friedman. "VitaminFIZZ will be a great addition to our portfolio and we look forward to growing this emerging brand in the Vegas market."
Spartan's strategy will initially focus on high volume convenience store locations in the Las Vegas Metro area. Sales teams will also emphasize targeting popular retail franchises, casinos, hotels, restaurants, golf clubs, bars, schools, hospitals, gyms and universities.
"Las Vegas is a great market for VitaminFIZZ and a natural expansion both in geography and demographics," said V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "Spartan Distribution's innovative and fast moving approach perfectly complements our philosophy and we are thrilled to welcome Mr. Friedman and Spartan to the Fizz family."
