USA: U.S. Stock Reports on East Coast Beverage Corporation
About the Company
East Coast Beverage has been able to secure retail sales exposure in 85% of the consumer markets in the United States. As an example, they have agreements with retail industry giants such as Kroger, Ralph's, Dominic's, Albertson's, Publix, Eckerd's, Winn-Dixie and Seven-Eleven just to name a few.
East Coast Beverage Corporation was founded in March 1998, develops, produces and nationally distributes "Coffee House USA(TM)", a proprietary line of all natural, ready-to-drink ("RTD") bottled coffee drinks. John Calebrese, the Company's founder and CEO, devoted six years to researching and developing this unique product line, which shipped its first cases in December 1998. In spite of extraordinary start-up costs and growing pains normally associated with new operations, the company produced first year revenues of approximately $4.5 million with nearly 600,000 cases shipped, surpassing the first year successes demonstrated by the now well known products of Frappuccino, Snapple and SoBe. Estimated sales for 2000 will be over $15 million.
East Coast does not own or operate any manufacturing facilities, and sources its products through third party copackers. Outsourcing is utilized to allow the Company to enhance production flexibility and capacity, leverage working capital, transfer risk, and focus its energy and resources on what it does best, product development, marketing and sales. This substantially reduces capital expenditure and avoids the costs of managing a production work force and inventory.
