Seventy-year-old Sledd Distribution of Wheeling, West Virginia serves convenience stores in five states: Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia and Ohio. Sledd Distribution will be responsible for the roll out of Koma Unwind relaxation drinks to 90 7-Eleven locations in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

"Sledd serves a large market with respect to the number of convenience stores, and we are pleased to be working with them. Their distribution to 7-Eleven stores in Pennsylvania and West Virginia is just the beginning. They will offer our products to many other stores in their network," said Brian Weber, CEO of BeBevCo.

And Jack Hilliard Distribution will distribute BeBevCo’s products in Temple, Texas and the surrounding four counties. The territory includes Ft. Hood military base.

"The Alabama and Texas distributorship agreements are the tip of the iceberg with regard to things happening," said Weber. "Looking out through the end of the year, we are not going to spend much time at our headquarters; we will be on the road closing deals. The rapid growth of the relaxation drink category is going to keep us busy from now into the foreseeable future.”
