MIAMI, FL. U.S. – CLR Roasters, a wholly owned subsidiary of Youngevity International, Inc. and makers of Café La Rica espresso, “The OfficalCafecito of the Miami Marlins,” has announced a Four Hundred and Nineteen percent increase in unit sales for the month of August.
Management at CLR Roasters believes that this unit sale increase was primarily driven by Ad Specials that took place during the month of August with retail partners; Presidente, Sedanos, Freso Y Mas, Bravo Supermarkets, and WalMart Stores.
CLR Roasters is now fully operational and the company is working closely with its retail and food service partners in Florida to assist these vendors in returning to their operating capacity which existed prior to Hurricane Irma striking the State of Florida.
“We are saddened for all people that are suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. CLR Roasters is fortunate that our facilities did not sustain any damage and we were able to resume production and shipping to many of our accounts after only a few days of business interruption.
Although August was a terrific month for our Café La Rica brand as we added 60 new accounts and saw a 46% increase in unit sales at Wal-Mart Stores, we have experienced a slower start in September due to Hurricane Irma within our Florida accounts.
In spite of this slow down we expect the third quarter will experience overall stable sales and we anticipate that we will regain our sales momentum as we enter the 4th Quarter,” stated Ernesto Aguila, President of CLR, and Founder of the Café La Rica Brand.
