inventory risk is going to be a big part
of our strategy in 2021, and we feel Dot
is going to be a part of that story, " said
RISE director of sales for foodservice,

Dot as a partner, our distributors will
be able to order just a few cases or kegs
at a time to serve their clients' needs. "
Ray added that many operators

with several different companies that
offer touchless dispensing for cold
brew kegs, but we are finding the easiest solution is the simplest - and that
is our 7-fl.oz. cans. "

and caramel flavors. Kitu Super Coffee

format in coconut mocha, sweet cream
