VuQo Premium Vodka, the world’s only vodka distilled from coconut nectar, is proud to announce new distribution in the state of Illinois through Midwest Wine & Spirits, Inc. Through its philosophy of a “two customer principle,” Midwest has grown through focusing on providing both their customer base and suppliers excellent service and support, quality products, and competitive pricing.
“Chicago has been on our target list of key markets we’ve aggressively pursued as part of our plan to grow VuQo into a worldwide brand,” said Rich Cabael, Founder and CEO of VuQo. “We’re excited about our new partnership with Midwest Wine & Spirits as we work with them to establish the brand in the Windy City.”
VuQo plans on targeting consumers between the ages of 21-35 by driving on-premise initiatives supported by off-premise programs. “Market influencer” programs identifying key tastemakers, trendsetters, and socialites will be implemented to penetrate accounts that competitive brands have a stronghold in.
