North Carolina Beer And Wine Distributor Partners With Software Platform To Give Restaurants, Bars And Retailers Easy Access To Product List And Pricing
RALEIGH, N.C., July 7, 2015 – Mims Distributing Company, a North Carolina wholesale beverage distributor, has announced that it joined SevenFifty.com, an online alcoholic beverage platform that gives restaurants, bars and retailers easy access to products and pricing across all distributor portfolios in their local markets.
SevenFifty, a New York City-based company that launched in 2012, offers a modern and convenient way for beverage distributors, sommeliers, and other wine, beer and spirits professionals to navigate the wholesale beverage alcohol market. The platform offers free site access to prospective buyers.
Mims Distributing joins more than 500 distributors nationwide partnering with SevenFifty and boasts a fully searchable portfolio on the site. A sommelier, for example, may search for a specific varietal from Mims Distributing’s wine division, along with the wine’s country of origin among other criteria.
This partnership comes as a natural extension of Mims Distributing’s rapidly expanding wine and beer portfolio. In the last six months, Olde Hickory Brewery, Atwater Brewery and Coronado Brewing Company have joined the company’s impressive collection of craft beers. The list of wineries that have recently partnered Mims Distributing includes such fine California wineries as Bien Nacido Vineyards, Black Kite Cellars, Burgess Cellars, J. Wilkes Wines, Keever Vineyards, Palazzo Wine, Poseidon Vineyard and Obsidian Ridge.

“I’m excited to welcome Mims Distributing to SevenFifty,” said Gianfranco Verga, the company’s COO and co-founder. “Having been in the industry my entire career, I was frustrated by the inefficiencies throughout the supply chain, so my business partners and I founded SevenFifty to modernize the process. With the support of distributors like Mims, we’ve been able to make the purchasing process more efficient and responsive for on- and off-premise retailers across the country, while simultaneously providing tools to help salespeople connect with their buyers and expedite everyday tasks.”
“SevenFifty is making it faster and more convenient for buyers to understand what’s available in their markets,” said Jeff Mims, Chief Marketing Officer for Mims Distributing Company. “North Carolina has a rapidly growing population of craft beer lovers and wine aficionados, so we’re happy to bring our portfolio online to help beverage professionals better serve local consumers.”
