Orlando, FL, October 26, 2022 — McapMediaWire— Apple Rush Co., Inc. (OTC Pink: APRU), a holding company that engages in the business of developing, marketing, distributing, and selling products that promote a healthy lifestyle with a primary focus on food, beverage, anhydrous Hemp oil marketplace, kratom, kava, and other active ingredients announces it has purchased Elev8 Hemp, LLC from public company, Branded Legacy, Inc. (OTCQB: BLEG).
Elev8 Hemp is an established brand with existing distribution in brick-and-mortar locations. The Company plans to expand the Elev8 Hemp brand with multiple new coffee variations as well as utilizing this new customer base as an avenue to introduce some of Apple Rush Co., Inc.’s existing product lines.
The largest market for hot drinks is coffee, which is predicted to reach US $585 billion in worldwide revenues at home and abroad by 2025, partly due to the continuous rise of specialty coffees in the food service industry.
It has been seen over the past few years that consumers are becoming more conscious of the manufacture of the things they purchase and the origin of their purchases. This is true, particularly when it comes to the supply chain for goods like coffee that are used in food and beverages. To assure the legitimacy of their coffee purchases, buyers are therefore keenly searching for certified coffee goods. https://www.mordorintelligence.com/industry-reports/coffee-market
Elev8 Hemp, LLC, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple Rush Co., Inc., produces Hemp-infused coffees and teas. They were established in 2016 and introduced their first hemp coffee brewed with beans from Guatemala, Colombia, and Brazil. Since then, they have developed into a variety of hemp coffee flavors, added hemp tea, and introduced a whole bean coffee with CBD.
Brandon Spikes, chairman of Branded Legacy, Inc., stated, “We are really excited about the sale of Elev8 and believe that this might be an excellent chance for our shareholders to become invested in two outstanding companies. By strategically spinning off assets that are not our primary focus, we are able to grow the business successfully for the benefit of our shareholders.”
Tony Torgerud, CEO of Apple Rush Co., Inc. stated, “I remember this brand from about five or six years ago and thought it was a very unique brand with much potential. They were in multiple supermarkets with Apple Rush. I’m eager to include it in our portfolio. In my opinion, I believe we can significantly grow this coffee line and have it further penetrating the market in a short period of time. It has historically done over 30k a month on Amazon and with consumers spending more now than ever online, we feel this number will be exceeded in the near future. We also see Elev8 having more CBD coffees, Delta 8, HHC, or other active ingredients and even expanding into kratom coffee.”
