"Tripling our store count builds upon the sales success we are experiencing in the natural and general grocery channels throughout the Northwest," said Richard Tait, co-founder and center mid for Golazo. "This recent expansion gives us access to some of the largest beverage markets in the country and the opportunity to put a Golazo can or bottle in the hands of players and fans everywhere from Fairbanks to San Diego."
