Breakthru Beverage Group, a leading North American beverage distributor with operations spanning across 16 U.S. markets and Canada, is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2024 U.S. Best Managed Company for the third straight year.


Now in its fifth year, this designation, sponsored by Deloitte* Private and The Wall Street Journal, recognizes the achievements of U.S. private companies and the successes of their management teams. Breakthru achieved several critical milestones in 2023, including entering a new market through the acquisition of Wine Warehouse in California and implementing a new operating model with four North American regions to enable their continued growth and expanded capabilities across their footprint.


"2023 was a year of tremendous growth and evolution for Breakthru, which has been driven by our talented associates. To receive this honor for a third year in a row is a testament of our strong culture, strategy, supplier partnerships, and people." said Stephanie Soto, EVP, Chief Human Resources Officer at Breakthru.
