Reed Beverage Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony

Reed Beverage Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony


Family owned distribution business, Reed Beverage, broke ground last Friday, February 19th on their new beverage distribution facility and office. Located in Amarillo, Texas, this nearly 60,000 SF building will be comprised of many great amenities including a 3,694 SF hospitality room with a full commercial kitchen (equipped to hold 238 people). Other features include a 31,000+ SF controlled temperature warehouse, 3,054 SF liquor/wine cooler, 3,632 draught cooler, and a new corporate office.

Friday’s well-attended groundbreaking ceremony represented an important day for Reed Beverage. With a couple hundred people in attendance, this kick off was a way to celebrate the commencement of the construction process. Guests reflected back on the company’s rich history while also looking forward to the future, the growth that lies ahead. All those with a stake in the company were also in attendance, from owners and investors, employees and family members, to the Mayor and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce. The event offered food, live music, and of course, beverages.

Reed Beverage is excited for the opportunities that will come from this new facility, and ARCO is honored to be a part of the process.

Some of those partnering with ARCO Beverage Group on the project are GMA Architects, J Shehan Engineers, IC Design Services, Custom Design Group, Amarillo Testing & Engineering, and Furman Land Surveyors.

 


 

Great Bay Distributors Completes St. Petersburg Distributorship

Great Bay Distributors Completes St. Petersburg Distributorship


ARCO Beverage Group recently completed construction of a 267,787 square foot beverage distribution facility and office for Great Bay Distributors. Located in St. Petersburg, Florida, the building is home to a 1.5 Megawatt Solar System, the largest privately owned rooftop solar system in the state. This $2.6 million system will reduce the company’s electric costs by as much as 40%, and is predicted to cut carbon dioxide emissions by over 43,000 tons. As the new headquarters, the distributorship also comes equipped with an outstanding hospitality room, sign shop, maintenance building, truck wash area, and fuel island.

When ARCO began conceptual design, the owners had yet to decide on the look of the front entry for their new building. After a visit to the ARCO headquarters, they chose to emulate the two-story glass front façade. This insulated tilt-up concrete structure also includes a 143,000 square foot controlled environment warehouse with a 30’ clear cross dock area.

The final product is an amazing representation of Great Bay’s rich history and bright future. ARCO is honored to have been a part of the process – from concept to completion.
