Three year old, Bev-Hub, has grown quickly, by focusing on supporting newer beverage companies and helping them test and scale products. The move to Manhattan is a massive opportunity to scale production for their clients. “In 2018, which was our first year, our goal was packing 100,000 bottles to be able to sell,” McDonald said. The expansion into the Manhattan facility represents exponential growth. “This year, we have SKU to do about 125 million cans this year. To give a comparison, we had a goal for 100,000 cans our first year in Wichita. I did 96,000 cans yesterday.”
