Buzzbox has expanded its footprint to the City of Indio. Members of the Coachella Valley Firebirds and Acrisure Arena celebrated the grand opening of a new location for Buzzbox premium drinks and a new relationship. 

The building is situated in the old Target, close to Jackson Street and I-10.

A Glimpse of the Grand Opening

At Buzzbox’s new Indio location, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was conducted.

Buzzbox Premium Cocktails Inc.  

Buzzbox offers ten various cocktail tastes and isn’t only concerned with producing high-quality beverages; it’s also interested in the preparation process.ย 

“The commitment we made to being a good business here in the valley with our, you know, zero-waste facility and the energy efficiency that we built into our concept.”

Rod Vandenbos, founder/CEO of Buzzbox

Everything begins with the creation of the drinks inside the new facility. After the product is created, it goes through the packaging process, which is Buzzbox’s main area of strength. They give it a somewhat distinct appearance from your typical alcoholic beverage.

Exclusive Drinks Made From Best Ingredients

Every award-winning Buzzbox is made with quality and sustainability in mind, from the best ingredients and premium spirits inside to the mostly plant-based, recyclable packaging on the outside. Buzzbox drinks are preservative-free, kosher-certified, and gluten-free. They are also vegan. There is a Buzzbox for everyone with ten classic beverages to pick from: 

  1. The Perfect Margarita,
  2. The Classic Greyhound, 
  3. The Tequila Paloma, 
  4. The Long Island, 
  5. The Classic Cosmo, 
  6. The Cuban Mojito, 
  7. The Bloody Mary, 
  8. The Whiskey Lemonade, 
  9. The Hurricane, and; 
  10. The Vodka Lemonade. 

The four-pack of the ten unique cocktails costs $12.99 MSRP and comes in 250ml eco-friendly cartons.

Partnering with Acrisure Arena

Acrisure Arena, the newest top-tier facility created especially for the Coachella Valley, has announced a founding partner sponsorship deal with Buzzbox Premium Cocktails, the first-ever ready-to-drink Cocktail in the environmentally friendly Tetra Pakยฎ Box. The arrangement includes the right for Buzzbox Premium Cocktails to serve as the only ready-to-drink beverage in the stadium with a branded bar that offers the Buzzbox line-up of 10 sustainably packed ready-to-serve all-natural ingredient cocktails.

“We’re honored to sponsor Acrisure Arena and have the opportunity for fans to enjoy our Buzzbox premium cocktails in this new space. Buzzbox was born in the Coachella Valley, and our production facility remains here. As a purpose-built company, we are passionate about being active members of our local community, and getting involved with Acrisure Arena is one-way Buzzbox can share in the excitement, not only around Firebirds hockey games but also other upcoming community events.”

Rod Vandenbos, Buzzbox Founder and CEO

The Acrisure Arena, scheduled to open in December 2022, will give the wider Palm Springs region of Southern California a top 11,000+ seat facility to accommodate the most prominent performers and acts worldwide. The new arena, created especially for hockey and concerts, will offer first-rate service by serving Buzzbox beverages, accommodations for artists, and all the advantages of a cutting-edge music and sports facility. The building will also house the Seattle Kraken’s American Hockey League affiliate.

Riverside Nabs Excellence Award

In May this year, we reported that The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) honored Riversideโ€™s PACT project with the 2022 Sustainability Award. The City of Riverside PACT is a four-part strategy to create a safer, healthier, and more sustainable transportation network.
