The MINDBODY Wellness Index has ranked Miami, Florida as the healthiest city in America for the second year in a row, with 87% of residents working out at least once a week. All that working out necessitates recovery. Launching TapouT’s clean-energy formula with this community was a critically important objective for the TapouT team and doing so with a distributor that can get to all the key gyms and retailers in the market is ideal.
“We are thrilled to expand our distribution agreement with Eagle, a family-owned juggernaut in the beverage distribution business. This further validates Splash’s investment thesis for acquiring Copa di Vino as we continue to reap the benefits of its distributor network which was become a conduit for bringing SALT Tequila to spirits retailers and now TapouT,” stated Robert Nistico, CEO of Splash.
