Uncle Arnie's has entered into a partnership with Kiva Sales and Service (KSS) to bring its lineup of cannabis-infused beverages to retailers across California.
"We are extremely excited to partner with KSS in California,” said Uncle Arnie’s President Alberto Esquenazi. “Distribution has been a major challenge across the entire industry, and it was critical for us to align with the top distributor in the state with the strongest portfolio of brands. That is exactly what we found in KSS."
Founded in 2020, Uncle Arnie's aims to create cannabis products at accessible prices – all while keeping things fun. The brand is known for its 100 mg Iced Tea Lemonade.
"Uncle Arnie's has quickly risen to the top in the cannabis beverage category in California," said Brooks Jorgensen, president of Kiva Sales and Service. "They're known for their high-quality products at an accessible price point and have been a customer favorite since their launch in 2020. We're excited to partner with the up and coming brand to further help them reach new customers across California and help bring new product SKUs to market."
This partnership will facilitate expansion of Uncle Arnie's products throughout California by strategic deployment of distribution resources and an integrated sales approach achieved through collaboration between Uncle Arnie's and KSS sales teams.
"KSS has the best reputation for distribution in California for a reason,” said Uncle Arnie’s CEO Theo Terris. “We have been extremely impressed with the entire team thus far and are thrilled to see how the partnership evolves. Uncle Arnie's has gained a lot of traction over the last couple years, and we strongly believe that our partnership with KSS will strengthen our positioning in the beverage category."
