Premier Beverage chooses Overland Park as regional HQ

Premier Beverage Inc. announced today that it will consolidate two offices into a new Overland Park-based regional headquarters. Premier Beverage is a wholly owned subsidiary of Glazer’s Distributors, one of the country’s largest distributors of alcoholic beverages. In October, the company will move 122 administrative, sales, marketing and office employees from locations in Lenexa and Kansas City, Mo.

“Our Overland Park office is going to be our central sales office for both Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas,” said Pat McNamara, Glazer’s vice president of operations. “This is the first time we have combined offices in two states. We look forward to hosting our suppliers that will visit us from all over the world. This office space will be a great addition to our facilities.”

Premier Beverage’s new, 20,000-square-foot regional headquarters will be located at 5200 Metcalf Avenue. The Dallas-based company, which distributes and markets wine and spirits in 12 states and generates more than $3 billion in annual revenue, will make a $2.7 million capital investment in the space.

“I am pleased that Premier Beverage has made the decision to add to its presence in Johnson County,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “The company’s plans to consolidate operations in Overland Park is great news for the community and the state. I wish the company every success in the future.”

“Premier Beverage is exactly the kind of company Overland Park welcomes and wants,” said Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach. “Bringing together two sales offices at a central point will make Premier an even more competitive operation. Premier, a leading distributor, is also a very community-minded operation with its philanthropic efforts. Giving back to a community is vital and appreciated by many.”

“We welcome Glazer’s to Overland Park and are pleased that this company with a century of service to its customers has chosen our community as its next center for growth,” said Tracey Osborne, president of the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce.”
