SA&M Preccelerator® Program Announces Investment In Bevz
LOS ANGELES, October 27, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Preccelerator® Program, a Santa Monica, California-based early-stage startup accelerator, announced today it has invested in Bevz. Bevz is a convenience store delivered to your door concept, offering everything you can find at a liquor store, delivered in 45 minutes or less. Bevz offers easy-to-use software designed for non-technical store owners, plus the simplest user experience for consumers, that bring stores, brands, and distributors into the eCommerce world together.
“Bevz was built by retailers, for retailers,” said Victor Grayr, Founder & CEO of Bevz. “We focus relentlessly on retailers, giving them the technology, support, and marketing to better connect with their customers and deliver thousands of different products from their store. With Bevz, local liquor stores can stay relevant and compete against big box chains, while offering consumers the next level of convenience.”
Bevz covers everywhere from Santa Barbara down to San Clemente, and Pasadena to Palm Springs, and will soon expand to San Diego and the Bay area, eventually going national. With more than 30 years of experience in alcohol sales and convenience store operations, coupled with innovative technology, Bevz has already seen strong traction and created unique partnerships with retailers, suppliers (ranging from small companies like El Silencio to large companies like Anheuser-Busch), and wholesalers (like Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and Young’s market).
“Bevz is truly a disruptive technology for independently owned convenience and liquor stores; we are very excited that Bevz will help an outdated industry come into the 21st Century of e-commerce,” said Len Lanzi, Managing Director of the Preccelerator® Program.
