ARCO BEVERAGE GROUP COMPLETES FACILITY FOR RAVING FAN, COASTAL BEVERAGE COMPANY
ARCO Beverage Group is excited to have partnered with Coastal Beverage Company on their newest facility in Wilmington, North Carolina! Tee Nunnelee and the Coastal Beverage team were impressed with ARCO’s ability to deliver a personalized, beach-inspired solution that caters to their specific business needs.
From the Owner:
“Nearly four years ago, Coastal Beverage Company, Inc. was faced with a difficult decision – whether we should add additional space to our existing warehouse or buy property for the purpose of building a new facility. After an incredible amount of thought and work from our management team and through partnership with the consulting firm Precision Distribution Consultants, the decision was made to sell two of our existing warehouses and build one large distribution center to service those territories.
This investment would be a big one for our ownership, but one we believed would allow us to better serve our employees and customers. As I write this letter now, I can say making the decision to build was one of the best decisions we have made as a company in our over sixty-year history in business. And if not for the partnership we formed with ARCO through the design and build phases of this project, I’m not sure I would have been able to make this statement.
In every facet of our dealings with ARCO, their team over-delivered on results, and more impressively, did so in a professional manner that would make any business owner proud. The ownership team, executive management team, and all the team members at Coastal Beverage Company, Inc. are incredibly grateful for the facility built for us by ARCO.
The reason for this letter is to express our gratitude to the entire ARCO team who guided and mentored us through all stages of the design and construction project. We specifically want to thank Ryan Spowal and JT Stone for their consistent level of professionalism and dedication. Bottom line, we could not be happier with our new warehouse and headquarters and would recommend ARCO to any other beverage distributor considering a warehouse rebuild.” -Tee Nunnelee, President | Coastal Beverage Company, Inc.
