    Traverse City, Mich. – H. Cox & Son Inc. employees are putting in extra hours to help ensure retailers are well-stocked ahead of the busy holiday season. Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day is a busy time for the beer distributor, with sales spiking 50% the weeks before each holiday and skyrocketing business at local bars and supermarkets leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Michigan’s independent, family-owned beer distributors employ nearly 5,000 people and have an economic impact of nearly $5 million in local communities statewide. H. Cox & Son exemplifies the industry’s commitment to improving the communities where employees and leadership live and work through their involvement and sponsorship of numerous organizations and local events, including Munson Hospital Cancer Center, Munson Hospital Stroke Initiative, Northwestern Michigan College Foundation, and Traverse City YMCA, along with many local high school extracurricular activities.

    “At H. Cox & Son, we are passionate about giving back to our community and gladly embrace any opportunity to support other local businesses and charitable organizations,” Ribel said. “We are very fortunate to be part of a fifth-generation family business. With H. Cox & Son being part of the Traverse City community since 1933, many generations of bars, restaurants, and stores have supported and helped us grow. Giving back to our local community is our way of saying, ‘Thank you.’ We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Cheers to a great 2024!”

The beer distributor has worked hard to diversify its inventory in a dynamic tourist area market, with 35% of business done in the summer months.

    Petitpren’s continued success made possible by hardworking employees, relentless focus on quality, community service

    Clinton Twp, Mich. – A leader among beer distributors in Michigan since 1933, Petitpren Inc. is proud to celebrate 90 years in business this year. The company’s continued success is made possible by the hard work and commitment of its employees, a relentless focus on quality, and giving back to the communities it proudly serves. 

    “My great-grandfather, Frank E. Petitpren, started this company out of a six-car garage on Broadway on the Clinton River in Mt. Clemens immediately following the end of Prohibition before moving to a location on Market Street,” said Brad Petitpren, president of Petitpren Inc. “Thanks to his leadership and that of my grandfather, Stan, and my father, Dean, our company established a mission to provide the highest quality products, a wide variety of choices, and superior service to our customers. It is a legacy I am proud to continue today alongside our hardworking, dedicated employees and my sons, Austin and Alec, who represent the fifth generation of our family in the business.”

    With a commitment to building strong partnerships with its suppliers and giving back to its surrounding communities, Petitpren Inc. exemplifies the deep roots and longstanding histories for which Michigan’s beer and wine distributors are known. Petitpren donates more than $100,000 to local charities and municipalities each year and is a co-founder of SADD Michigan, a student-based organization that fights underage drinking and promotes alcohol education to minors.

    “Our connections with the people in the communities where we live and work are integral to our company’s past and future prosperity,” said Taylor Ickes, HR manager at Petitpren. “Our team prioritizes contributing to the growth and success of Macomb County by staying active in sponsoring local events and activities that benefit health and wellness, children and youth, recreation, the environment, and more. We look forward to continuing to strengthen the presence and relationships we have built in our local communities for many years to come.”

    Last year, Petitpren Inc. broke ground on a 30,000-square-foot addition to its Clinton Township warehouse. The expansion is helping the distributor accommodate a growing roster of suppliers and a draft cooler and represents Petitpren’s continued investment in the local community and good-paying jobs.

    A dedicated steward of the environment, Petitpren Inc. has undertaken many energy efficiency projects over the past 10 years and recycles approximately 2 million pounds of aluminum annually.

    Petitpren Inc. proudly serves retailers in Macomb County and a sliver of Wayne County, including the city of Hamtramck. In 1980, the company moved into its current location on Groesbeck Highway in Clinton Township. The warehouse sits on 10 acres of land, housing 135,000 square feet of warehouse space. Petitpren Inc. employs 102 people, including 95 full-time and 7 part-time workers.

    State-of-the-art facility latest indicator of company’s growth and success as it marks 90 years in business

    Traverse City, Mich. – Imperial Beverage Company, a Michigan, family-owned beverage distributor, today celebrated the grand opening of its 12,000-square-foot warehouse at 1430 Industry Drive in Traverse City. The facility will help the company accommodate an expanding portfolio of suppliers, customers, and continue creating job opportunities to support the communities it proudly serves.

    “We are thrilled to officially open our doors in Traverse City with this state-of-the-art warehouse in such an amazing community,” said Joe Cekola, president of Imperial Beverage Company. “This expansive new facility is evidence of the hard work, passion, and innovation that drive our employees, help generate jobs, support other small businesses, improve the local economy, and introduce more options for consumers across Michigan. The timing of this grand opening couldn’t be better as Imperial celebrates 90 years in the business of helping our retail and supplier partners, employees, consumers, and communities succeed.”

    Imperial Beverage Company started 90 years ago, in 1933, when the Berry family established the business at the end of Prohibition. The Cekola family bought the company in 1984. They have grown it from a one-county Pabst distributor into a statewide beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic wholesaler serving every county in Michigan, every week, all year long, with four locations in Kalamazoo, Livonia, Marquette, and now Traverse City.

    Imperial entered the Traverse City market in 2001 with one local sales representative and a delivery truck out of Kalamazoo. Strong relationships and an outstanding local craft beverage portfolio evidence the operation's success. The region now supports 23 employees operating out of the Traverse City facility that covers Northern Michigan from coast to coast.

    Imperial’s new warehouse is located about four miles south of downtown Traverse City. Thursday’s ribbon cutting drew state, local, and county dignitaries.

    “Thanks to Michigan’s independent and family-owned beer and wine distributors like Imperial Beverage Company, our state is among the Top 5 in beer production, with over 300 small brewers and brew pubs and 140 wineries,” said State Senator John Damoose. “Imperial Beverage’s new Traverse City warehouse demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to creating jobs, supporting small businesses, and giving back to local communities. I look forward to seeing Imperial excel in the Grand Traverse Region and beyond as it continues to help create growth, choices, and competition.”

    Imperial Beverage Company is Michigan’s only statewide beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverage distributor. They boast a portfolio of over 7,000 SKUs, offering something for every customer. Imperial has 342 total employees, including specialized support and sales staff who live in the markets they serve.

    O & W Inc. maintains commitment to clean energy initiatives that protect Michigan’s air, land, and Great Lakes

    Ypsilanti, Mich. – Independent, family-owned beer distributor O & W Inc. today announced it recycled a company record of nearly 104 million cans and glass bottles in 2022. The new record, an 8.5% increase from 2021, makes O & W Inc. one of the largest recyclers in southeast Michigan. The company’s announcement coincides with Crush a Can Day, celebrated on Sept. 27.

    “Crush a Can Day provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate our continued commitment to best business practices that help reduce our carbon footprint and protect our air, land, and Great Lakes,” said Kit Wanty-Lambert, president of O & W Inc. “As an employee-first company, we are proud of our continued innovations that promote responsible energy use and reduce pollution. We take pride in optimizing our energy resilience, which benefits everyone by preserving jobs, helping our company save money, protecting our natural resources, and contributing to our local economy.”

    In addition to cans and bottles brought back from retail, O & W Inc. is committed to recycling 100% of the cardboard, plastic, and paper within its facility. In 2021, O & W Inc. invested in a new solar array system on its warehouse in Ypsilanti, complete with 420 new panels producing 200,000 kilowatt hours of electricity. Since its installation, the distributor has seen savings of $20,000 and $23,000 in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

    “Our renewable energy investment is just part of our commitment to conservation and diversification in our warehouse, on the road, and in the marketplace,” said Isabel Wanty, vice president of operations at O & W Inc. “As an independent, local beer distributor helping to promote growth, choices, and competition, we are thrilled to bring several environmentally friendly products to consumers across southeast Michigan. Expanding our portfolio to include ethically sourced, sustainably packed products is part of our ongoing efforts to preserve the environment for future generations.”

    Michigan’s beer and wine distributors became the state’s major recyclers after the 1978 passage of the bottle bill, which gives 10 cents back when people return cans and bottles to retailers. Distributors initiate the chain of deposits, collecting the 10-cent-per-container deposit at the front end, refunding the deposit when containers are properly returned by retailers, and recycling the materials at the end of the process. Because of the system, Michigan has the nation’s highest return rate for recycling cans and bottles.

    Committee to continue focus on promoting vital roles women play in beer and wine industry

    Lansing, Mich. – The Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association (MB&WWA) today announced its newly elected Women’s Advocacy Committee for 2023-2025. The committee was established in 2020 to promote the vital roles many accomplished women play in the success and operations of the beer and wine distribution industry. The announcement coincides with American Business Women’s Day on September 22, a day to officially honor the contributions and achievements of businesswomen across the nation and their impact on the workforce.

    Jenna Podjan, sales manager at Bud Distributing Inc., was appointed chair of the MB&WWA’s Women’s Advocacy Committee.

    “I want to thank Kit Wanty-Lambert for her tremendous leadership the last two years as committee chair in advancing our mission to educate legislators and the general public about the evolution of women working in the beer and wine distribution industry,” Podjan said. “I look forward to working with this inspirational group of women as we continue our efforts to be a go-to resource for information on Michigan’s alcohol regulations and how they create choice and competition while protecting public health and safety.”

    The innovative nature of the beer and wine distribution industry fosters astounding growth potential for women in many capacities, including sales, marketing, human resources, finance, and operations. Whether working in warehouses, merchandising in retail stores, or leading their organizations as presidents and CEOs, women are making great strides for their companies, local communities, and the industry as a whole.

    “It’s our hope that more women consider exciting career opportunities in this constantly evolving and rewarding industry,” said Brandi Tribell, vice president of operations and events at the MB&WWA. “With longstanding histories where they live and work, beer and wine distributors employ thousands of Michiganders and pump millions of dollars into local communities each year. It’s exciting to witness more women coming on board, climbing the ranks, and playing pivotal roles in the development and success of the industry.”

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Imperial Beverage, Michigan’s leading independent craft beer distributor, today announced a new partnership with Michigan State University to sell Big Lake Brewing’s signature Sparti Parti IPA at Spartan Stadium during the 2023 football season.

    Sparti Parti is among Big Lake Brewing’s signature, best-selling hazy IPAs. With crisp pine notes and a deep citrus finish, Sparti Parti is an extremely pleasant, sessionable beer, ideal for tailgating or sipping during a Spartan football game.

    This year, Big Lake Brewing is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Their beers are all products of the Great Beer State – inspired by and enjoyed by thousands at and around some of Michigan’s greatest landmarks, including Michigan State University. This dedication to our state’s culture has built Big Lake Brewing’s brand over the past decade.
