Specialty dispensed beverage company acquisition to strengthen Sunny Sky’s overall product portfolio.
Sunny Sky Products LLC has acquired substantially all the assets of DWS Inc., a specialty dispensed beverage company.
Sunny Sky Products is a premium dispensed beverage manufacturer that sells globally to convenience stores, schools and restaurants and this acquisition will strengthen their overall product portfolio.
Founded in 1985, DWS Inc. has a strong position in hot dispensed products in the c-store channel. The c-store hot dispensed category comprises over half of the total c-store Food Service Beverage Sales and is projected to continue to grow, with specialty coffee beverages leading the way, according to the Convenience Store Refreshment Report from Technomic.
“We are excited to welcome the customers and employees of DWS to the Sunny Sky Products team! With its strong sales in the hot dispensed category, DWS Inc. is a perfect strategic fit to the existing Sunny Sky Products portfolio,” said W. Ashley Edens, president and CEO Sunny Sky Products. “DWS’ solid position in the hot dispensed segment, coupled with Sunny Sky Products’ expertise in frozen and cold dispensed, presents a fantastic growth opportunity. Both companies share similar visions to be best in class with our people, products and customer service and we are confident this acquisition will strengthen our presence as a leading manufacturer of dispensed beverages for the c-store industry. “
