CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cinnabon Premium Coffee Lattes soon will be available in 41 states thanks to a distribution agreement between BYB Brands, Inc. and Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages.
CSAB, a subsidiary division of Cadbury Schweppes, P.L.C., will distribute the lattes through CSAB’s principal subsidiaries, Cadbury Schweppes Bottling Group and Snapple Distribution Co. The lattes have been available in the Southeast through Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated.
Cinnabon Premium Coffee Lattes are available in four flavors: mocha latte, cinnamon vanilla latte, caramel nut latte, and espresso and cream. The portfolio of brands for BYB Brands, based in Charlotte, includes Cinnabon Premium Coffee Lattes and Respect Vitamin enhanced beverages.
"The $900 million ready-to-drink coffee market is already huge, and about to get much, much bigger," said Norm George, president of BYB Brands. "In just limited distribution, Cinnabon Premium Coffee Lattes won over consumers and independent reviewers as the best tasting R.-T.-D. coffee drink, and now with coast-to-coast availability, Cinnabon Premium Coffee Lattes are about to become a household name."
