Pittsburgh, PA (March 26, 2012)—Premier Innovations Group has announced their recent expansion of Clique Vodka into the state of Ohio.
Premier Innovations Group was founded by Noah Cohen, Chief Executive Officer and native to Youngstown, Ohio. Mr Cohen attended Canfield High School and is a graduate of Youngstown State University. He has had a long line of successful start-ups under his belt since the age of 18. In 2007, at the age of 27, Cohen decided to start Premier Innovations Group, a federal importing company for the spirits industry. With a strong team foundation formed, hard work and continued dedication, Premier Innovations Group launched their first private brand, Clique Vodka in July of 2010.
“Expanding Clique Vodka’s foothold into many new markets is our biggest focus in pursuit of having a global brand. I couldn’t be more excited and proud about the penetration into my home town market where much of our initial investment dollars come from. Many individuals from Youngstown gave their hard earned money taking a chance on heavy returns that can come from success in the liquor industry. We are starting to see great success from our launch in our initial states, but Youngstown, Ohio has always been an important market to me,” said Noah Cohen, CEO Premier Innovations Group.
Premier’s brand, Clique Vodka, is now sold throughout retail outlets in Northeast Ohio. The brand is sold in numerous retail outlets such as Giant Eagle and other state retail stores. Premier is acting as its own distributor and has hired a sales force to promote the vodka locally in Youngstown. The brand hit store shelves last week and is priced at approximately $16.00 a bottle.
“We view Ohio as a good state to do business with for many reasons. Its proximity to Pennsylvania has allowed many consumers to request the brand to be available in the Buckeye state,” says Jimi Romanus, Vice President of Sales. “Today’s economy has created a strong demand for high quality vodka with an affordable price point, which is something Clique offers in this market.”
Ohio now marks the fourth state that Premier Innovations Group has expanded their brands to, along with Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.
