PHILADELPHIA -- Organic soda maker Sipp Eco Beverage Co. is expanding its reach into the Midwest and specifically to the Chicago area, by partnering with Chicago Coffees & Teas as a distributor. Sipp Eco Beverage Co. is the creator of Sipp Sparkling Organics.

This partnership will increase Sipp's presence in both the Midwest and in high-end foodservice establishments and hotels. "We are very excited to be expanding in the Midwest as we have had much demand for Sipp in this region. Working with Chicago Coffee & Teas will allow us to not only grow in retail, but on premise, as well," said Beth Parentice, CEO and founder of Sipp.

Chicago Coffees & Teas delivers specialty and gourmet coffee, tea, espresso and other specialty beverages to restaurants, hotels and cafes in Chicago.

"Our partnership with Sipp allows us to continue to add value to our customers with the highest-quality specialty offerings. We provide only best in class products and have found few others that can hold a candle to not only Sipp's quality ingredients, but unique flavors as well," said Michael Klong, president of Chicago Coffee & Teas.

Chester Springs, Pa.-based Sipp currently has distribution in retail stores and restaurants in Northern California, Texas and across the East Coast. SIPP is represented by Cascadia Managing Brands.

In late 2009, Beth Parentice set out to create a new, healthier soda alternative. After many months of mixing, testing and tasting, Sipp debuted at the Natural Products Expo in Boston and unveiled a brand new line of organic sparkling beverages sweetened with agave.

Chicago Coffees is the premier purveyor of sustainably grown gourmet coffees, teas and equipment.
