CENTR Enhanced, a better-for-you energy drink, has made a strong impact in California and the broader Pacific Northwest, capturing the attention of independent grocery retailers and regional chains. These esteemed establishments have enthusiastically embraced CENTR Enhanced and included it in their coveted functional beverage set as more consumers are looking for healthier energy drinks than currently available. "Since we first launched in 2019, California and the Pacific Northwest have been critical markets for us and are critical precursors for the success of brands as they scale Nationwide," remarks CENTR Brands CEO Arjan Chima. "For this reason, we are incredibly excited for the chain store adoption and selling velocity CENTR Enhanced has experienced since launching a few months ago."

Amongst the chain store listings, CENTR is thrilled to be rolling out in almost 100 7-Eleven stores throughout Seattle.

"Nearly every single 7-Eleven franchise owner at the event placed an order to bring CENTR Enhanced into their stores. The location growth we are experiencing is only the beginning of what we will see within this retail chain, a retailer we've had a great history in other US states," continued Rosinsky.
