Kona Gold Beverage, Inc Signs Distribution Agreement with A&B Distributors to Distribute Ooh La Lemin Lemonades in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas

Yesterday, the company had come into the news cycle after it announced that it had inked a distribution agreement with the firm A&B Distributors. A&B is going to be responsible for distributing the company’s 16oz Ooh La Lemin Lemonades and 12oz Sparkling Ooh La Lemin in the states of Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma.

The company’s distribution foot print is going to encompass the entirety of the states of Oklahoma and Arkansas to go along with 19 counties in Texas. It was a major new development for Kona Gold since the distribution agreement would open up significantly sized new markets for lemonades.

The combined population of the markets comes to around 14 million and that could prove to be a major long term boost. A&B had been established back in 1979 and at the time it only had 7 employees. However, the company has grown by leaps and bounds and now boasts of 300 employees to go along with more than 75 suppliers.
