DENVER, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BAZI International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BAZI) announced today that the Company has engaged several regional retail locations in the Midwest to aggressively build retail distribution for BAZI, the Company's flagship product. Leading BAZI's distribution initiative is Atlas Oil headquartered in Taylor, Michigan. They currently do business in 23 states. Their retail footprint covers Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio under several brands, including BP, Marathon, P66, Clark, CITGO, and Valero. Atlas supplies nearly 400 retail stations in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, and own 17 retail stations directly. The Company immediately intends to provide distribution in Atlas' retail Atlas Oil stores with the option to distribute BAZI in all of their 400 outlets.
BAZI has also partnered with the largest Exxon Mobil distributors in the Greater Metropolitan Detroit area and will be selling BAZI in their corporate owned stores. The Company's success securing retail distribution with Atlas Oil and Exxon Mobile follows the Company's previously announced distribution agreement with 7-Eleven, as well as with other high-end grocery retailers, including Plum Markets and Nino Salvaggio Fruit Markets in Southeastern Michigan. "We are continuing to attract high profile retailers in the market because they recognize the product benefits and understand the need in the marketplace for a healthy alternative to the energy shots that currently dominate the market," said Peter Masouras, Director of Sales, East. "Most people don't have the time to shop for superfruits, clean them and prepare them for eating. BAZI makes adding these powerful superfruits to your diet quick and easy."
Kevin Sherman, CEO of BAZI, stated, "The Midwest is a strong regional market which allows us to focus on key distribution points and expand beyond from here. It's only a matter of time before BAZI becomes a household name. Our Midwest distribution strategy plays an integral role in expanding to both coasts."
