The Hawaii-based premium natural bottled water company, has increased its retail availability to 105 H-E-B grocery stores in Texas and 13 AJ’s Fine Foods stores in Arizona. H-E-B, a major supermarket chain based in San Antonio, has more than 315 stores in Texas and northern Mexico. AJ’s Fine Foods was established in 1985, with a mission to bring an upscale gourmet market experience with unmatched customer service and fine food expertise to their 13 locations in Tucson and Phoenix AZ. Prior to the placements at H-E-B, Hawaiian Springs was only available in Texas at 23 locations of Sprouts Farmers Market & Sun Harvest Farms.
“We are pleased to expand our availability in the Southwest through our new partnerships with H-E-B and AJ’s, two superior grocery chains dedicated to delivering quality products to shoppers,” says Clint Welker, National Sales Manager for Hawaiian Springs Water. “Now Texans and Arizonans have even more access to the unique taste of natural lava-filtered artesian water, as only Hawaii’s Big Island can make it.”
Hawaiian Springs is sourced from an artesian aquifer at the base of the Mauna Loa volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, and has been distributed in the U.S. mainland since 2009. The H-E-B and AJ’s partnerships represent the continuing significant expansion in Hawaiian Springs’ retail growth.
Just last month, the company announced its distribution in Raley’s, Gelson’s, and Bristol Farms Markets throughout California. With Hawaiian Springs’ recently expanded availability at H-E-B and AJ’s Fine Foods, the brand increases its retail presence on the U.S. mainland by 50 percent so far this year. It also distributes its natural artesian water in Hawaii, Canada, Japan, China and Hong Kong.
