Mims Distributing Company Announces Addition Of Mexican Soda Jarritos
North Carolina Wholesale Beverage Distributor Expands Soft Drink Lineup
With Popular Mexican Soda Made With Real Fruit Flavors
RALEIGH, N.C., July 6, 2016 – Mims Distributing Company, a wholesale beverage distributor in North Carolina, has announced the addition of Jarritos to its portfolio. Jarritos, a Mexico-based line of natural-flavored soft drinks, is the No. 1 Mexican soft drink brand in the United States.
More than fifty years ago, Jarritos was introduced as Mexico’s first national soft drink. Today, Jarritos is the leading brand in the US in the Mexican soft drink category and has become a Mexican cultural icon. Whether it is the distinctive glass bottle or the eleven unique and great fruit flavors, Jarritos can be found throughout the US in major and independent grocery stores, Mexican restaurants, taquerias, catering trucks and convenience stores.
Jarritos flavors are a reflection of Mexico in its array of traditional Mexican flavors made with 100% real sugar and natural flavors including: Tamarind, Mandarin, Fruit Punch, Jamaica, Lime, Grapefruit, Guava, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango and Cola.
Novamex, a private company in El Paso, Texas, owns the Jarritos brand and the rights to market its products outside of Mexico; it has been selling Jarritos in the United States for 30 years along with Sidral Mundet, Sangria Señorial and Mineragua.
“We are excited to expand our lineup with Jarritos,” said Chip Mims, CEO of Mims Distributing Company. “The brand already has a loyal fan base in North Carolina, but we’re looking forward to helping make Jarritos the go-to soda for even more people in the state. The natural fruit and sugar used in each bottle of Jarritos makes it stand out in a crowded beverage market.”
“This new partnership will allow Jarritos to reach more customers in North Carolina,” said Luis Fernandez, CEO of Novamex, parent company for Jarritos. “Many people in the state already know and love Jarritos, but through this partnership with Mims Distributing, we’ll be able to reach more shelves and therefore more people in the state. After one sip, I’m confident soda drinkers will recognize the superior taste of Jarritos and become fans for life.”
