SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – November 14, 2017 – BFit Brands continued its aggressive distribution strategy for FitWhey, the fitness beverage that combines protein and functional energy, by signing an agreement with KeHE Distributors (KeHE). KeHE distributes natural, organic, specialty and fresh products to natural food stores, chain grocery stores, independent grocery stores and other specialty product retailers throughout North America.
The KeHE network is expansive: 15 North American distribution centers, five million square feet of warehouse space, and more than 700 trucks with 30,000 routes serving retailers from coast to coast.
“Part of our marketing strategy with Fitwhey is smart expansion across the United States, so we’re pleased to be partnering with KeHE,” said FitWhey’s creator and co-founder Erik Rothchild, a 10-plus year veteran in the beverage business. “Among their broad customer base, they service independent natural food and supplement stores, which are a big part of our word-of-mouth marketing strategy.”
