The company continues to expand and now includes distribution centers throughout Central Mississippi. In 1987, the company opened a distribution center in Magee that a team of seven people manage on a daily basis working in conjunction with the Jackson distribution center to service customers in a three county area. On October 23, 2000, Mr. Costas took over the distribution center in Yazoo City, MS and with the help of 19 employees, manages four counties. July 1, 2002 was the date of acquisition of our Vicksburg distribution center and now services two counties with the help of 17 employees.
Now, Southern Beverage Company, Incorporated is a large wholesaler of Anheuser-Busch InBev and other products with five distribution centers and over two hundred sixty employees. We cover 45 routes to distribute our drinks to 2,100 customers in 32 counties within Mississippi and are constantly looking to expand our brand base and find better ways to do business.
