High Country Beverage Selects ARCO As Repeat Construction Partner


ARCO Beverage Group is thrilled to partner with High Country Beverage again in Johnstown, CO. After building the original facility in 2017, ARCO is now expanding the beverage distributorship  to accommodate High Country’s impressive growth. Once complete, the 125,400 SF CTW expansion will bring the total square footage of the distribution facility to nearly 260,000 SF.

The Johnstown facility services the North Colorado territory, a region with a population of more than 670,000 people and 1,400 High Country accounts. In conjunction with their Western Slope locations, High Country services more than 2,000 restaurants, bars and liquor stores throughout the mountains of Colorado. Their beverage portfolio includes major brands like MolsonCoors, Heineken, New Belgium Brewing, Boston Beer Company, Sierra Nevada, and many more.

We are proud to be a repeat construction partner for High Country Beverage and look forward to the successful completion of this project soon! Keep reading for more project details.
