GummiShot reports rapid expansion into c-store channel

Feb. 22, 2022

Santa Cruz, CA-based GummiShot announced multiple distributor partnerships that will bring its energy gummies to more than 4,000 convenience store locations by early spring.

Launched in 2021, GummiShot entered the market to change the way consumers get their daily pick-me-up. The plant-based gummies are available in three flavors made from real fruit: elderberry, Valencia orange and tropical. They’ve already found their place in vending machines and micro markets nationwide.

GummiShot said its quick rise in the market can be attributed to its unique position within two popular categories: the $16 billion gummy industry and $57 billion energy drinks/shots segment. Levering the power of these two categories with a better-for-you innovation enabled GummiShot's mass expansion through key distributors, including Core-Mark, McLane, Hackney, Vistar, Golden Eagle Distribution and Harbor Wholesale.
