We consistently have people contacting us, asking when we'll be selling Good Time Beverages products in their home states. The announcement about our major market expansion should make a lot of on-the-go, eco-minded consumers - and retailers - quite happy
Downey, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Good Time Beverages (http://www.goodtimebeverages.com), the sector leader for single-serve, ready-to-drink (RTD), premium cocktails in portable, earth-friendly, re-sealable pouches, has officially announced new market growth for their "Bob & Stacy's Premium Margarita" and "Big Barrel Spirits" brands via the addition of distributors in eight more states.
Good Time Beverages' "Bob & Stacy's Premium Margarita" and "Big Barrel Spirits" products, both "bar quality", full-proof, flavorful ready-to-drink cocktails packaged in patented pouches, have begun distribution in eight new markets across the U.S., namely Missouri, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Hawaii, Georgia and Illinois. Good Time Beverages also has product distribution in California, Florida, Texas, Arizona and Nevada, and plans for further expansion later this summer and into the fall.
"We couldn’t be more pleased about the wide-spread appeal that Good Time Beverages' products have garnered, in every corner of the country," says Robert K. Whyte, CEO of Good Time Beverages. Whyte adds, "We consistently have people contacting us, asking when we'll be selling Good Time Beverages' products in their home states. The announcement about our major market expansion should make a lot of on-the-go, eco-minded consumers – and retailers – quite happy."
The new distributor relationship details for each of Good Time Beverages' new markets are as follows: Lohr Distributing Company in Missouri; BooneDocks Distribution, Inc. (Nashville), Beverage Control Inc. (Knoxville), and Glazer’s/Victor L. Robilio Company (Memphis) in Tennessee; Pine State Beverage Co. in New Hampshire; Heidelberg Distributing Company in Kentucky; General Beverage Sales in Wisconsin; Hansen Distribution Group in Hawaii; Savannah Distributing Company in Georgia; and Wirtz Beverage in Illinois.
Whyte continues, "With all of the inherent outdoor sports and recreation opportunities in each of these new markets – not to mention huge events like the Kentucky Derby Festival, Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, the country music festivals in Wisconsin, Chicago's Lollapalooza and, well, pretty much anything you'd be doing in Hawaii – Bob & Stacy's pre-made margarita, made with premium tequila, is a prefect fit for anyone looking to enjoy an innovative, quality, spirits-based – not wine or malt – ready-to-drink cocktail product, that also leaves a much lower carbon footprint than more traditional pre-mixed cocktails in glass or metal containers. Hey, who makes real margaritas with wine or malt, anyway? Not us!"
About Good Time Beverages
Good Time Beverages' cocktail products, packaged in on-the-go "FlexPouches™", are perfect for a variety of pastimes – from boating, to barbecues, to State Fairs, to NASCAR races – or simply, to enjoy with friends by consumers' backyard pools. Good Time Beverages' products are also fitting for picnics, concerts, assorted sporting events, in RVs, while hiking, fishing, skiing, camping, golfing, and on hunting trips. The drinks can also be enjoyed in the home, when the consumer desires a single-serve cocktail option without the fuss or mess of making mixed cocktails. Through Good Time Beverages' network of the best and most established beverage distributors in the country, the company’s products are sold at retail chains coast-to-coast.
Good Time Beverages' unique cocktail concept utilizes only premium spirits in each of their mixed cocktail products, which are being lauded for both the quality of their contents, as well as the convenience and eco-friendly aspects of their packaging. All Good Time Beverages' products are made in the USA and the earth-friendly, easy-pour, re-sealable pouches in which the products are packaged, weigh significantly less than traditional drink containers, making them very portable. Every Good Time Beverages product is like having your own personal bartender wherever you go.
Good Time Beverages' environmentally-friendly "flex" pouches are constructed of foil that is mostly post-consumer recycled foils, covered with a thin internal layer. The pouches take up significantly less space than traditional cans or bottles, and each pouch has a free-flow, tamper-resistant cap that can be resealed for extended storage. The packaging incorporates a high-oxygen barrier film that preserves flavor for one year, and up to three months after initial opening (when resealed with original cap). The drinks can be poured into other beverage receptacles or enjoyed straight from the pouch.
Good Time Beverages' flex pouches are lightweight and have a compact profile, ideal for space-saving storage and shipment. They also have excellent stand-up stability due to the single gusset construction at the bottom of the pouch, and strong film structure. Their eco-friendly design allows them to carry about an 80% lower carbon footprint than other packaging, and they create 90% less landfill waste as compared to all other packaging containing equal amounts of liquid. Good Time Beverages drink packaging is also 100% BPA-free.
Upcoming Good Time Beverages products include "Vodka Cosmo" and "American Grain Vodka", both due out on the market in the fall of 2012.
