Speedee Marts Convenience Stores

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Speedee Marts throughout Nevada have begun carrying 10.5-oz. KonaRed Original and KonaRed Green Tea through KonaRed Corp.'s partnership with Splash Beverage Group and its Nevada distributor, Southern Wine & Spirits.

The Henderson, Nev.-based convenience store chain is a family-owned business with 20 locations operating in the Las Vegas area.

"Our expansion into the Nevada market has the potential to put KonaRed products in front of millions of new consumers," Shaun Roberts, CEO of KonaRed. "This order with Speedee Mart further demonstrates acceptance of our antioxidant juices and teas in convenience stores and is the first direct store delivery facilitated by Southern Wine & Spirits since our relationship with them began five weeks ago."

Koloa, Hawaii-based KonaRed has developed a proprietary process that produces antioxidant extracts and powders from Hawaiian coffee fruit which are used in its antioxidant juices, organic green teas, and on-the-go packs. Its products are sold in select Whole Foods, Safeway, Sprouts, Wal-Mart, 7-Eleven and other retail outlets throughout the United States and Canada, it said.
