SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – December 27, 2017 – BFit Brands continued its aggressive retail strategy for FitWhey, the fitness beverage that combines protein and functional energy, by signing an agreement with Sprouts Farmers Market. Beginning in March 2018, three FitWhey flavors (Grape, Berry and Orange Cream) will be sold at 35 Sprouts stores in Arizona with distribution provided by KeHE.
Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Sprouts specializes in fresh, natural and organic products at prices that appeal to everyday grocery shoppers. The national grocery chain – which features an expansive vitamins and supplements department – operates more than 280 stores in 15 states from coast to coast.
“Part of our marketing strategy with Fitwhey is to continue to build our footprint market of Arizona, so we’re pleased to partner with Sprouts,” said FitWhey’s creator and co-founder Erik Rothchild, a 10-plus year veteran in the beverage business. “Sprouts is an ideal retail partner for FitWhey because of its focus on healthy, natural foods. It is a trendsetter in terms of the natural foods market, and we believe that FitWhey will fit in nicely in that market.”
