Seven-UP Bottling – a family-owned independent beverage distributor with about 20 employees – distributes many of Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple’s soft drink brands throughout Sheboygan, Calumet and Manitowoc counties. Brands include Dr Pepper, 7UP, A&W and Sunkist.
Chris Barnes, a spokesman for Dr Pepper Snapple, said all 20 employees in Sheboygan would be given the option of remaining with the company following the acquisition. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Seven-UP Bottling Co of Sheboygan will play a key role in expanding our company-owned direct store delivery operations throughout the upper midwest,” said Joe Rowland, senior vice president and general manager for Dr Pepper Snapple’s central region, in a written news release. “We’re excited to add this business and territory to our operations as we continue to align our business to better meet the evolving demands of our customers.”
