Cheerwine Expanding To Pacific Northwest

Cheerwine is expanding distribution of its soft drink to the Pacific Northwest, adding Idaho, Oregon and Washington through a partnership with independent Pepsi bottlers and Pepsi Beverages Co. The company, based in Salisbury, N.C., is making its product for Pacific Northwest customers in Olympia, Wash. It expects to fully flesh out its distribution channel in those markets in early 2014.
