Today Jackson Family Wines announced new distributors in three states; Illinois, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. To wit:
. In Illinois, they’ve chosen Chicago-based Romano Beverage. With the addition of the JFW portfolio, Romano Beverage will debut a new statewide, full-service distributor, with a focus on premium wine and spirits, per release.
. Johnson Brothers will handle the portfolio in Minnesota.
. Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits has been appointed in Pennsylvania. JFW is currently distributed by SGWS in 13 other major markets.
Meanwhile, the winery is maintaining its alignment with Republic National Distributing Co. in 13 markets as well as Breakthru Beverage Group in another six states.
“We’ve always gone to route in each state separately,” says JFW evp of sales Bill O’Connor, “and while these moves will shake things up a bit in the Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic, it will be healthy overall for our award-winning portfolio.”
