Pure Sodaworks Expands Product Development, Distribution At New Location

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Locally-made Pure Sodaworks beverages will soon be on more shelves around Chattanooga, thanks to expanded distribution agreements with several vendors. To facilitate this expansion, the company will be moving its headquarters from Coolidge Park to a new production center off of Highway 153.  

“Pure Sodaworks is now in 43 area locations, including restaurants, stores and groceries,” said Matt Rogers, Pure Sodaworks co-owner. “The new production center will allow us to meet the needs of these vendors, and provide us with ample space to continue developing exciting new products under our Everyday Eclectic brand, including Plucky Charms Jewelry, Bee in Your Bonnet Artisan Infused Honey, Fireside Candles, and other home and food items.” 

“Now that our products are more widely available, we no longer need to host our own retail space,” said Tiffany Rogers, Pure Sodaworks co-owner. “Customers have greater access to Pure Sodaworks, and all of our other products, at locations across the city. Meanwhile, our new expanded manufacturing space will allow us to focus on what’s most important to us: Creating quality products, and getting them out to our customers and clients.”  

Pure Sodaworks is currently available at Enzo’s Market on Main St.; Pruett’s Market on Signal Mountain; Mr. Zip locations on Frazier Avenue, Bonny Oaks Drive, and Apison Pike; and all Lupi’s, Mojo Burrito, Southern Burger, and Good Dog restaurants. Additionally, Merchants on Main, at 607 E. Main St., will continue to carry the entire line of Everyday Eclectic products. 

“Pure Sodaworks’ new facility will allow us to expand distribution, so that new customers can discover and enjoy this unique taste of Chattanooga,” said Trey White, president of Athens Distributing Company, which delivers Pure Sodaworks beverages to retailers.  

Josh Ferguson, grocery manager at Enzo’s Market, always sees a positive reaction from customers when they realize Pure Sodaworks products are in the store. “We've been selling Pure Sodaworks since our grand opening on May 1, and customers love coming here for our Enzo's Blood Orange flavor created just for us.”  

One new retailer who is planning to stock their shelves with Pure Sodaworks following the company’s move is Whole Foods Market on Manufacturers Road. This local partnership is the first step in opening the door to more than 360 additional Whole Foods Markets across the nation.  

“Pure Sodaworks shares Whole Foods Market’s commitment to bringing the best tasting, purest foods to customers,” said Morgan Walley, Chattanooga Whole Foods Market Local Liaison. “Their unique sodas are created with all natural ingredients for the delicious drinking experience that Whole Foods Market’s customers seek.” 

The final day for sales at the Pure Sodaworks’ current retail space in Coolidge Park, The River Street Makery, will be Saturday, Dec. 21. Customers are invited to the Last-Minute Santa Sale on that day, as well as the Small Business Saturday Sale on Nov. 30.  

In addition to the expanded retail options around Chattanooga, all Pure Sodaworks beverages and Everyday Eclectic products will remain available for purchase online at everydayeclectic.com.
