TITUSVILLE, Fla., Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Apple Rush Co., Inc. (OTCPINK:APRU) announced today that it has hired Terry Barnaby as its National Sales Manager in charge of building sales teams and distribution channels for the company.  Terry Barnaby has been hired as a full time employee to continue the expansion that has been started by CEO, Tony Torgerud.  “Terry’s vast experience within the non alcoholic category managing a sales force and working with customers from independent store owners to large chain accounts will help APRU grow its top line revenue while maintaining favorable margins in all of its product lines,” commented Tony.

When asked why he was joining a growth company, Barnaby stated, “I joined the APRU team as the National Sales Manager for the opportunity to launch an exciting new chewable line of products on a national basis along with several other new innovative product lines.  I have known the CEO Tony Torgerud for the past 10 years and have known him to be a person with drive and passion to be the best at what he does. I carry with me 21 years of sales experience from Pepsi ranging from grocery stores and convenience stores to restaurants and bars, with the last 5 years as Sales Manager. I am honored to be part of APRU for the quality and innovative products they have to offer and I am excited to grow this company nationwide.”

“I look forward to finalizing all of the previously announced share repurchases and restructuring along with current financials in the near future.  This along with a solid balance sheet will carry us through 2018 and beyond.  Some of these opportunities have taken a little longer to develop than expected but I feel it is more important to continue building the business and getting these corporate opportunities done right instead of fast,” continued Torgerud.
