Bernick’s is a family-owned distributor of beverages, vending products and services in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. We opened our doors in 1916.

WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE BEVERAGES.

Sure a great portfolio of products makes things that much easier (and a lot more refreshing), but without the right people, even the best brands can’t create a loyal following.

We’ve found the surest path to success is through building positive long-term relationships — with our team members and our customers. Because when people are celebrated in an environment that supports innovative ideas, integrity and respect, anything is possible. And growth is probable.

  • We provide outstanding service to over 10,000 customers
  • Over 4.5 million consumers enjoy our products
  • We’re the 7th largest independent Pepsi franchise in the United States

Our “three uniques”

What sets Bernick’s apart is our premium service, our quality portfolio and our deep commitment to the community. We wouldn’t be the company we are today without putting our passion into all three.

Premium service

Our team members are committed to the customers we serve. We want every customer interaction to be a positive experience that begins with flexible, proactive, can-do attitudes and ends with satisfaction.

Quality portfolio

With brand partners like Pepsi, Dr Pepper, Rockstar, Miller, Mission, New England Coffee, and Third Street Brewing, our portfolio has more category leaders than any of our competitor’s. And, we’re not done growing. We’re constantly on the lookout for new renditions of taste our customers will love.

Community involvement

We believe that healthy communities are the key to creating healthy companies. So we take pride in giving back 5% of our net income to the communities we serve. And we encourage our team members to volunteer, both on the job and off.
