US: Who's Your Daddy expands production base
US company Who's Your Daddy has extended its production base.
The company confirmed yesterday (19 October) that it has signed an agreement with PepsiCo franchise Admiral Beverage Corporation.
The deal, for an undisclosed amount, will see Admiral produce the company's entire line of soft drinks, including its Regular, Sugar Free and Green Tea 'King of Energy' beverages. Admiral becomes Who's Your Daddy's sixth US production facility.
Admiral was originally formed from an alliance of 13 independent bottlers who joined forces in 1970. Since its foundation, Admiral has expanded into Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Utah, and Montana. The producer operates two main production facilities in Wyoming and Utah, and has over 120 full-time employees.
"Admiral is the benchmark for quality throughout the entire production process," said company CEO Edon Moyal. "With Admiral's tremendous presence in Utah and the surrounding areas, where we have achieved great success with the Who's Your Daddy 'King of Energy' Drinks, it is wonderful to know we have a production partner of such top quality to match our distribution partners.
"We are extremely confident in their long tradition of quality and their true dedication to top quality production."
