BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Grenadier, the new Boulder, CO-based agency, today announced that it has been named Agency of Record for Sunny Delight Beverage Company's Fruit20 brand. Grenadier will lead creative, digital and point of sale responsibilities.

"Given the current conversation around food and beverages today, especially the focus on calories, flavorings and additives, we felt the time was right for the Fruit2O brand to be part of that dialogue. With all the full taste of natural fruit, but no calories or artificial colors, we think Fruit2O has a great story to tell," said Mike Burton, Vice President Marketing, Fruit20. "I'm excited to work with our new partners at Grenadier in helping our brand stand for something in the lives of our consumers."

"We're looking forward to the opportunity to work with Mike and his team at Fruit2O. They play to win and so do we," said Rob Hofferman, Partner at Grenadier. "The fact that Fruit2O is a challenger brand going up against the big dogs from Coke and Pepsi makes this only more exciting and gratifying. I couldn't think of a more appropriate first partner for Grenadier." Recently formed in partnership with Barkley, a Kansas City-based independent, Grenadier is founded on the belief that the most successful brands are the ones that take a stand.
