Pure Sodaworks Signs Regional Distribution Deal

Thursday, February 21, 2013
Pure Sodaworks, the company behind Chattanooga’s handcrafted natural sodas, formed a partnership with Athens Distributing Company, a Tennessee-based, family-owned wine and spirits distributor. This agreement will help Pure Sodaworks extend its reach and shine a spotlight on Chattanooga’s artisan community.

“Athens Distributing Company is ecstatic to represent Pure Sodaworks,” said Trey White, president of Athens Distributing Company. “The company creates unique flavors developed by people right here in our community. It’s a fantastic product, and we’re looking forward to helping more people discover a special soda that we know they will love. As soon as we learned about them, we knew we wanted to join forces.”

Tiffany Rogers, Shawn Clouse and Matt Rogers, co-founders of Pure Sodaworks, share Mr. White’s enthusiasm.

“Getting our product in some of our favorite restaurants is wonderful,” said Mr. Rogers. “Even better, we’re thrilled to be working with a great local company, learning from their expertise in the beverage and restaurant industries. We know gourmet soda, they know beverage sales—it’s a win-win endeavor.”

Pure Sodaworks recently provided a tasting of its six bottled flavors for the sales force behind Athens Distributing Company. 

“The better they know our product, the better they can represent it,” said Mr. Clouse. “We find that our best advertising comes from our fans, so there was no better way to start than to make everyone at Athens Distributing a fan.”
