DENVER, Nov. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Pulse Beverage Corporation ("Pulse") (OTCQB:PLSB) announced today that Bashas' and Food City grocery stores of Arizona have begun selling their Natural Cabana® Coconut Waters in both Natural and Pineapple flavors.

Robert E. Yates, CEO of Pulse, said, “We are pleased to be able to offer our products in Arizona.  Bashas' and Food City are the home town grocers for the entire State, and have been serving Arizonans since 1932.  We believe that Bashas’ and Food City will provide us with a great opportunity.  Anyone who has been to Arizona during the summer-like months of May through October understands that the daily temperatures will drive sales of great tasting beverages.  Our Natural Cabana® Coconut Waters should do very well in the desert climate.”

Mr. Yates continued, “Pulse is making great progress in getting national USA coverage for our great tasting beverage products. Arizona has been a distribution challenge for us in the past, and we are pleased to be able to find a great partner in Bashas' and Food City.  After all, the Phoenix metropolitan area, with approximately 4.3 million residents, is one of the largest metropolitan populations in the United States, and they have one of the warmest climates in the United States.  This is a good formula for Pulse Beverage’s growing sales.”

“Our widening distribution coverage in the USA, together with our new initiatives overseas, should bode well for us in 2018.  We look forward to announcing our progress in both areas in the near future.”

About Bashas’:

Bashas' is an Arizona-based, family-owned and -operated grocery chain known for made-from-scratch bakery items, a full-service butcher shop, fresh local produce, and award-winning Chefs Entrees.  We operate in Arizona under four branded formats:

Bashas' stores are traditional grocery stores emphasizing quality goods and excellence in customer service, and reaching out to the immediate neighborhood customer base.

AJ's Fine Foods stores are gourmet and specialty stores catering to discriminating tastes. The stores feature chef-prepared entrees, an extensive wine collection with knowledgeable cellar staff, specialty baked goods, and the highest levels of customer service and attention to details.

Food City, with a 50-year reputation for service to the Hispanic community in Phoenix, was acquired by Bashas' in 1993 and continues its mission unchanged. Since acquiring the original Food City store, several Bashas' stores have been converted to this format to better meet the changing needs of their surrounding communities. Food City offers a full range of ethnic and Hispanic food varieties.

Diné Markets are located on Native American reservations throughout Arizona. They specialize in the needs of Navajo, Apache and Tohono O'odham customers with products such as Blue Bird flour for fry bread, mutton and wool. Signs in the store are in the native language.

Brothers Ike and Eddie Basha, Sr. opened the first Bashas' grocery store in 1932. Their mission: provide exceptional service, deliver their personal best, exceed customers' expectations and offer quality products at competitive prices.
While much has changed over the years, our mission remains the same. We will always strive to grow and improve our business, but we will never forget who we are and where we came from.

Arizona's our backyard, and we have a vested interest in the neighborhoods we serve. With more than 130 stores serving the state's 15 counties, we're proud to be your hometown grocer.
