Crescent Crown Distributing formally opened a new 335,000-square-foot warehouse in Mesa that will serve more than half the company's market in Maricopa and Pinal counties. The facility at Broadway Road and Longmore is also the company's new Arizona headquarters.
Crescent Crown sells more than 26 million cases annually in Arizona and Louisiana, distributing beverages from MillerCoors, Corona, Heineken USA, Pabst Brewing Co., Mike's Hard Lemonade and other brands. It also supplies beers brewed in Arizona, including products from SanTan Brewing, Papago Brewing, Grand Canyon, SunUp Brewing and Thunder Canyon companies.
Crescent Crown's warehouse features a 600-kilowatt solar array that provides more than 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year. The company's other green initiatives include using two hybrid delivery vehicles.
Crescent Crown is one of the 10 largest beer distributors in the nation. It more than tripled its size in 2004 when it bought Pearce Beverage, LLC, a Phoenix-based company that was founded in Mesa.
