Metro Detroit Distributor Wins 2nd Straight National Award


DETROIT – Local beer distributor Eastown Distributors Co. has received its second consecutive MillerCoors President’s Award, the only Michigan distributor to receive its annual performance award in 2012.

“Eastown Distributors Co. is honored to receive the 2012 MillerCoors President’s Award, which reflects and recognizes the dedication and continuing hard work of all our employees, and the strong partnerships we’ve built with our customers in Detroit and across Wayne County,” said Eastown President Paul Quasarano. “For four generations, our family business has made it our mission to provide the best service and quality products to our customers, and to give back to the communities that we call home. We look forward to continuing our mission and our commitment to our local business partners for many more years to come.”

The award is also based on qualitative criteria, including implementation of retail objectives and alcohol responsibility programs.

“Eastown’s 2012 award follows on the heels of a 2011 President’s Award, reflecting the company’s ability to sustain momentum despite a recovering Michigan economy,” Quasarano said. “Eastown is proud of the way our entire team is using new technology, new sales techniques and other innovations to keep our business moving forward.”
