IVS Launches “The Drink of the Future” Throughout the Western Hemisphere
IVS Enterprises, LLC, the exclusive distributor of Maddox Energy drinks, is well on their way to becoming a formidable force in the energy drink market. Within a few months, member-owners Tonya Ivie, Pam Hochstein, and sisters Micki and Nancy Stokes have successfully set up global shipping logistics, maneuvered through the FDA and Customs channels, arranged for professional inventory warehousing and delivery logistics, negotiated contracts with local and national distributors, and registered with many local and national retailer associations, such as Mr. Checkout and Dash-In.
“Our exclusive distribution contract for Maddox Energy drinks is the culmination of decades of hard work and sheer determination” says Micki Stokes.
BEDFORD, TX – Member-owners Tonya Ivie, Pam Hochstein, and sisters Micki and Nancy Stokes are excited about the future of IVS. The owners’ combined 105 years of business-related experience in the areas of law, information technology, public relations, education, and distribution, shipping and receiving gives them the distinct qualities needed to make the Maddox product line a tremendous success.
“We have experienced an explosive success since receiving our first Maddox shipment,” says Micki Stokes. Micki is IVS’s Chief Legal Counsel and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of North Texas and a Juris Doctor from Texas A&M School of Law.
Since traveling to Austria in June to participate in the canning process, IVS has been hard at work successfully setting up warehousing, distribution channels, and sales relationships. “We have already signed contracts with distributors who have started to distribute within south Texas,” says Nancy Stokes, IVS’s Chief Executive Member and Chief Information Officer. Nancy Stokes holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of North Texas and a Master’s of Science in Computer Engineering from The University of Texas.
Two flavors—Maddox Energy and Maddox Sugar-Free Energy arrived in Houston, TX and Miami, FL from Austria in early July and have appeared on store shelves throughout these two states. “It was an amazing sight to see thousands of Maddox cans as they were removed from the containers on the dock,” says Ivie, who has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and History from Lubbock Christian University and is IVS’s Chief Executive Officer of Sales and Distribution.
Maddox Energy and Maddox Sugar Free Energy drinks will be joined in the coming months by Maddox Organic Cola Energy, Maddox Wellness, and Maddox Junior (Apple and Sour Cherry flavors).
Distribution is IVS’s main focus. “We have the capabilities to can and receive 6 million cans a month,” says Pam Hochstein, Chief Executive Officer of Shipping and Receiving. IVS is currently working with independent convenience stores, grocery stores, bars, and restaurants, which are the leading point of purchase for energy drinks. “We’ve been given the unique opportunity as a small start-up company. We want to give the same opportunity to independent retailers by offering them high profit margins, readily-available product, and first class customer service,” says Hochstein.
“Maddox Energy and Maddox Sugar Free Energy are the drinks of the future,” states Nancy.
IVS is the Exclusive Distributor of Maddox Energy Drinks in the Western Hemisphere. These specially-formulated drinks can only be purchased through IVS and IVS’s distributors, wholesalers, and retailers.
