2T Water continues to make strategic moves in the southeast without showing signs of slowing down. The brand announced today that it will partner with Ingles Supermarkets™ to bring its Biotin Water® beverage to more residents.  Ingles Supermarkets™ currently has 208 locations throughout the southeast that will carry 2T Water products beginning Spring 2019.

Founded in 2013, the brand prides itself on creating its own distribution network with key retailers and chain stores.  To date, 2T Water has brokered its own placements in over 600 plus stores throughout the southeast, southwest, and midwest since it launched starting with a natural spring water in 2014.

This partnership with Ingles Supermarkets™ will add to the brand’s footprint in some of its key markets (GA, TN, SC, NC, AL, VA).  The brand will also debut its new flavor Cucumber-Melon with the Ingles rollout.  2T Biotin Water® delivers a full dose of biotin (300mcg) per bottle with all natural ingredients – without sugar and calories.

“We see this partnership with Ingles Supermarket as a “big deal” for our brand.  Ingles has done a great job providing quality products at value prices while keeping that local “hometown” feel.  We are excited to increase access to the brand by increasing the number of outlets that carry our products.  Since we are Georgia natives, we are particularly excited that the Georgia network of Ingles stores will provide an introduction to the brand for many new customers” said CEO, Eric Wells, 2T Water.

Late last year the brand re-positioned its focus on becoming the premier brand in the southeast region by 2020.  2T Water has used its resources to develop more distribution channels, sampling events, regional partnerships, and target marketing. “I want us to own our back-yard in the premium water category.  We have created some of the best products in our segment space and now its time for us to get it to more customers,” continued Eric.

The company is also planning an awareness campaign titled #2TPioneers slated to kick off in May 2019.  The campaign will feature talented individuals who are pioneering their field of expertise.  Visits are being planned to many of the cities/states that have Ingles Supermarkets™ locations.  You can search your state for one of the 208 Ingles Supermarkets here .

2T Water is Gaining Momentum

As smaller brands struggle to secure a place in the “water world”,  2T Water has carved out its path in a field full of competitors. The southeast continues to be introduced to this new brand that’s all about delivering "Better Water, Better Health”.  2T Water has remained consistent over the last few years while focusing on building a brand from the ground up employing a strong grassroots approach. The food and beverage industry is one of the toughest businesses to be in due to extreme levels of controlled distribution and lofty fees associated with product entry. However,  2T Water is proving that it is possible to create a space for your business in the industry without overspending or outpacing its growth. The brand has built retail partnerships across many channels including grocery, natural foods, fitness, vending, and convenient stores.  Much of this has been accomplished through face-to-face interactions and  simple hand-shakes.

The brand has several new distribution outlets coming in 2019. It’s in negotiations with several of its current partners including RaceTrac on expansion into other areas of their footprint. It has out-performed many other waters within the category and it’s currently the top-selling brand in Amy’s Natural Foods enhanced water segment. “We have organically built our brand with our own team and with limited mass marketing. I’m expecting big results when we finally expand our distribution and increase our marketing efforts later this year” shared Eric Wells, CEO - 2T Water.

Currently, the bulk of the brand’s sales is coming from southeast and midwest retailers across all channels with convenient and grocery stores leading the way. It is important to note that the brand has experienced a 63% increase in its fitness center partnerships. Approximately 23% of company sales are done online through its direct shipping option. The company continues to do a great job maximizing product placement in many different channels which showcases its ability to scale in a number of ways. Eric also shared that the brand is planning to have its 2nd private investment round in November 2018 for the upcoming new year.

2T Water Adds 300 Plus Grocery Stores To Its Distribution Network

Maybe you’ve heard of them or maybe you haven’t, but 2T Water is definitely a company to watch.  The brand announced today that it will partner with JTM Corporation to bring its 2T Biotin Water® beverage to more southeast residents.  The JTM Corporation currently supplies to over 300 grocery store locations throughout Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, and Kentucky that will begin carrying 2T Water products in January 2018.  In a highly health conscious environment, 2T Water has been able to not only deliver the first Biotin Water®, but continues to create a solid distribution network for the product.  This partnership will give the brand 313 additional locations and a good footprint across seven states in the southeast.  2T Biotin Water® is the only enhanced water on the market that delivers a full dose of biotin (300mcg) per bottle with all natural ingredients.  Its 0 calorie and 0 sugar proposition blended with the hair, skin, and nail super vitamin makes it a prime draw to consumers on a health frenzy.

“We are excited to work with the JTM Corporation.  This is great for our brand and it shows that we are fully committed to offering better-for-you beverages to everyone.  They really understood the direction we wanted to go in by providing healthier options to metro and rural areas.  The JTM Corporation has built a successful enterprise based on providing quality products at great prices. They will instantly strengthen our distribution channel in the southeast while providing customers with a premium beverage option.  We continue to grow at a rapid pace throughout the southeast with more partnerships on the way” said CEO, Eric Wells, 2T Water.

Eric started the company in 2013 with the launch of a premium spring water, 2T Water H2O®.  He and a college friend continues to build the brand from the ground up.  In 2015, Eric developed a proprietary formula and launched 2T Biotin Water® which gave the brand a solid differentiation point from competitors.  The product quickly began moving off the shelves and retailers answered with re-orders.  This recent agreement will allow the company to expand its product offerings to four flavors.  2T Biotin Water® Cucumber-Melon is set to launch Jan 2018 while giving the brand a larger shelf presence.  “We are still a very young company in the beverage industry and it’s important to build out your distribution network slow and steady in order to maintain long-term success,” says Eric.

The company has additional partnership agreements with other retailers that will be announced near the end of the year.  This agreement was negotiated as a warehouse deal which allowed Eric and his team to capture multiple stores within different regions.  The JTM Corporation will be responsible for shipping the product to all stores which guarantees placement and marketing support through The Alabama Distribution Company.  2T Biotin Water® will be positioned as a new featured item in all locations to enhance visibility and brand promotion.  Eric also shared that in the coming weeks, his team will devise a great marketing strategy to support each location on a local level.   “We have to share the health benefits of 2T Biotin Water® with these communities so they know why it’s a better option.  I don’t want it to be a drink that they tried once,  I want it to be a part of their daily health regimen,” said Eric.

With 2T Water’s growth the parent company The 2T Enterprises, Inc is now seeking a headquarter location in the Atlanta area to migrate all operations into one central hub.  The location will serve as the central distribution point for all company products and business ventures. The company has also started a management division for other brands seeking guidance with their product or services.  It has a long-term goal of becoming a full one-stop shop business management center that handles product development, marketing, distribution, sales, and retail management.

2T Water Mastering The Routes To Market

Finding a route to market for your products can be challenging for most business owners especially in a competitive industry like food and beverage.  However, 2T Water has continued to take advantage of lanes that showcase its brand in a major way.  It takes a special skill to pitch and land distribution with key retailers that are accustomed to meetings and calls everyday hearing why someone’s brand is the next big thing.  The truth of the matter is that many brands fail in just one year by lack of route to market execution.

2T Biotin Water® has given the brand credibility and shown the company’s ability to not only create but manufacturer, distribute, and gain key retail accounts.  This can be very difficult at first for new brands without any industry third-party assistance. “It has been important for us to show our brands value and what we are capable of ourselves.  I can only imagine how great it will be as we continue to expand and work with other professionals in the industry.” continued Eric.

2T Water is approaching the busiest season in the beverage industry with events, sponsorships, promotions, and new products lined up.  It’s sure to maintain a steady increase in brand exposure.  Also with its multiple channels strategy it gives the brand a greater chance of reaching its target audience and allocating its resources to the most effective route.
