Adds Over 450 New Stores in the Convenience Channel, In Stores Now
BOCA RATON, Fla., June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- (CELH) Celsius Holdings, Inc., maker of the leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS®, today announced a nationwide launch with a major premier convenience store chain in over 450 locations.
"The convenience channel represents the largest energy drink market in the country with over $9 billion in annual sales. The latest SPINS data show a 39.8 percent year-over-year increase for our CELSIUS® product portfolio in the convenience channel compared to 9.4 percent overall in the energy drink category while only holding a 10.9 percent ACV (percentage of convenience stores that sell CELSIUS®). Industry backed third party data continues to validate our positioning as a healthy, functional fitness drink that resonates with consumers and we are confident that CELSIUS® will continue to drive these sales metrics even higher as we increase our ACV in this channel through additional launches with new nationwide chains,"(SPINS, Shelf Stable Energy & Functional Beverages, Convenience, 52wks ending 04.21.2019)," commented John Fieldly, President and Chief Executive Officer of Celsius Holdings, Inc. "Celsius aligns perfectly with our convenience store channel partners as we bring an expanded demographic to the energy category, specifically women who account for approximately 53% of our sales as well as adult males who target a healthier alternative to traditional energy drinks."
Under the agreement with our new customer QuikTrip® (QT), CELSIUS® will be located on the top shelf of the energy door with a full shelf authorized in every market except AZ which will have a half shelf.
