Upper Street Marketing Inc. Announces Partnership With Culligan International

Culligan International and Upper Street Marketing Partnership Expected to Propel U.S. Expansion of Single-Serve Cold Drink System SPRiZZi

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) -  Upper Street Marketing, Inc. (OTC PINK: UPPR), which is in final negotiations to acquire SPRiZZi Personal Beverage System, today announced it has finalized a partnership deal with Culligan International, a global leader in clean water treatment solutions. Upper Street Marketing believes the partnership could spur an estimated growth of $9 million over the next 12 months. The initial deal covers two Culligan franchises in Pennsylvania with an initial order of 250 units per franchise with syrup replenishment programs. The strategic partnership will strengthen SPRiZZi's position as a leader in the $1 trillion beverage industry.

Culligan International is a privately held, 75-year-old brand headquartered in Rosemont, Ill. Led by CEO Scott Clawson, Culligan specializes in water softeners, water filtration systems and bottled water for residential and office applications. Culligan has more than 600 dealers in the U.S. and Canada and sells its products in more than 90 countries.

Following its merger with Upper Street Marketing, SPRiZZi intends to expand sales and marketing efforts through Culligan's large franchise network, eventually marketing to the home user. For their client offices, Culligan will purchase the units and establish replenishment programs for the system's syrup cartridges.

Culligan signed a test-market deal comprising two franchises in Pennsylvania, running 250 units and a syrup replenishment program. Each office has 650 office customers with an estimated 30-percent penetration rate, reaching 1,300 client offices. Expansion will continue in Pennsylvania and the East Coast, with a West Coast expansion soon after. SPRiZZi plans to be in one of five Culligan client offices.
