At the recent American Beverage Licensees (ABL) 16th Annual Meeting at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino in New Orleans, sixteen beverage retailers from across the United States were recognized as Brown Forman Retailers of the Year in a ceremony at the ABL Honors Gala. Recipients were nominated by their state beverage association for their success and dedication to the beverage alcohol industry.
Dennis “Salvo” Salverson from Coyote Grill in Whitewater, was honored with the Brown Forman Retailer of the Year Award at the gala. “The Brown Forman Retailer of the Year Awards provide us with an opportunity to recognize and honor our members – those individuals who serve as the face of the beverage alcohol industry to the consumer,” said ABL Executive Director John Bodnovich. “When selecting these members for their award, there are numerous aspects of small business ownership that are taken into account, among these are: excellence in advocacy, responsible sales and service practice, community engagement and their support of their state affiliate.”
