Sandston, VA, December 14, 2016– Specialty Beverage of Virginia, a Sheehan Family Company, has relocated its warehouse and business operations from Rockville, VA to Sandston, VA.
“The relocation of the business was necessitated by the significant growth of the company over the past several years. We are very excited to call Sandston our home for the foreseeable future.” says Specialty Beverage General Manager, Robb MacDonald.
Founded in 1991, Specialty Beverage, LLC started as a small independent craft beer distributor. Over the next two decades, the company continued its expansion, and in 2009 the business was acquired by the Sheehan Family Companies. Specialty Beverage currently employs over 125 people and has added over 70 new jobs in the past five years. The growth of the business necessitated the move to a larger, state-of-the-art facility. On October 21, 2016, Specialty Beverage officially opened its new 150,000 sq. ft. facility in Henrico County. Outfitted with the latest warehouse technologies, the warehouse and office space will support the continued growth and expansion of the business, while employees will benefit from a productive, safe, and modern work environment. With these new developments, Specialty Beverage will continue to deliver exceptional service to its suppliers and customers throughout the state of Virginia.
