RYE, NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
New Rye Securities (“New Rye”), a registered broker dealer focused on uncovering private placement investment opportunities for accredited investors, announced the launch of a new offering by Brixco, Inc., an innovator in the wine and spirits restaurant and retailing industry. Brixco is seeking $6,996,000 to expand its successful first-to-market concepts to new geographic locations. Details about the offering may be found on iCrowd.com.
Brixco is in the early stages of creating two innovative, high-potential chains that capitalize on the four strongest growth trends in alcoholic beverages today: premium wines, craft beers, premium whiskeys, and craft cocktails.
Brixco’s flagship brand Brix is a bistro/wine retailer offering pleasurable dining along with the opportunity for patrons to select and sample wide selections of wines before purchase. Brixco’s newest entry, Grane, in a Prohibition-themed, speak-easy setting, focuses on two of the fastest growing segments of the alcoholic beverage industry: premium whiskeys and craft cocktails. Grane is the first establishment in the world to dispense premium whiskeys through an automated dispensing system that uses smart card technology.
Both Brix and Grane are first-to-market gathering places that combine personal service with a sampling format that breaks new ground and affords customers distinctive dining and drinking experiences. Brixco’s Grane brand targets men 30-60 years of age engaged in the growing premium whiskey category, and men and women 30-45 years of age who lead the growth of the craft cocktail lounge category. Overall growth in US premium whiskey consumption has grown by 75% since 2002, and, in the last three years, by 18%.
“Brixco has developed, tested and demonstrated an innovative retail and restaurant format,” said John Callaghan, Founder of New Rye Securities. “With the new money raised in this offering, the company’s five-year plan is to expand from its proving-ground market in Omaha to a higher-potential, more diverse geographic base.”
“Brixco,” Mr. Callaghan continued, “is the type of company New Rye seeks: an innovative company transforming its industry, with annualized revenues now exceeding $6 million, attractive prospects for growth, and an experienced management team. iCrowd is tailored for companies like Brixco, intent on reaching a universe of qualified investors who come to the iCrowd site in search of real and actionable investment ideas.”
New Rye is a broker dealer that seeks to identify attractive private companies to offer accredited investors. It uses the internet capabilities of iCrowd.com to offer a secure site for investors to explore potential investments, communicate with managements, and invest in companies that meet their individual investment standards.
“We are excited to join forces with the New Rye Securities team, and capitalize on its creative approaches to find investors whose interests align with our business needs. We are impressed with their experience, focus on private placements, strategy development, and finance for small and growing businesses like ours,” said Dan Matuszek, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Brixco. “Our brand concept has broad appeal not only to consumers, but also to investors. The capital we raise will help us expand our dynamic brands to multiple locations over the next five years.”
