AMITYVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2017) - Iconic Brands (OTC PINK: ICNB) is pleased to announce the initial entry into the Chicago market as well as statewide with the brand's exclusive distributor in Illinois, The Winebow Group, www.thewinebowgroup.com. The company also is pleased to announce Bellissima is available at Binnys Beverage Depot, www.binnys.com, both online and in store. Binnys is the largest independent retailer in the Midwest with over 30 locations. Due to overwhelming demand after their opening order, The Winebow Group has already moved into a Direct Import ordering platform, ordering a full container representing over 2100 cases, which is extremely exciting this soon after the initial brand launch just last month in the Chicago market.
The company is also finalizing a distribution agreement with Young's Market in California, www.youngsmarket.com, the oldest distributor in California dubbed "The Best in the West." As previously announced Bellissima will be available at retail with Bevmo!, www.bevmo.com, initially on an exclusive basis then expanding availability to every retailer in the state. It is expected this program will be finalized in a matter of days and shipping immediately thereafter.
Further, Iconic Brands is in discussions with the Bucca Di Beppo chain of restaurants as well the Planet Hollywood Group, www.planethollywood.com. This will be Bellissima's first of many national on premise accounts and Bellissima is very pleased to partner with the team at Planet Hollywood. We're anticipating this program to begin in Q2 of this year.
Finally, the company would like to wish our Brand Partner Christie Brinkley a Happy Bellissima Birthday. Iconic Brands is a proud supporter of Christie's Birthday Fundraiser for the Children of Smile Train, https://my.smiletrain.org/fundraiser/christiebrinkleysbirthdayfundraiser .
