The partnership follows significant growth in the seltzer and RTD cocktail category over the past year, with IWSR mentioning that the US market is evolving and maturing as companies focus on value rather than growth, giving way to strategic branding and partnership opportunities. As a passionate entrepreneur and supporter of emerging brands, Mike is thrilled to partner with Texas Ranch Water Co. to bring the popular drink on the road with him for his fans.
“I love the product, the team and the brand they’ve built, but my favorite thing about this partnership is the glaring synergies we’ve shared,” said Mike. “Not only is Texas Ranch Water Co. the perfect fit for my tour and my fans, but it’s also a brand that I think has the potential to be massive. At this point in my career, I’m looking for organic opportunities to leverage my audience and network in the brands, products and businesses I believe in. This felt right to me, I’m excited to dig into the creativity and start building awareness right away . »
