Tanager Beverages Celebrates 20 Years in Business
Husband and wife, Joe and Diane Kondelis, have been the proud owners of Tanager Beverages for 20 years.
Originally purchased from the Kenney Family back in 1997 (called Kenney Inc. then), Tanager Beverages has grown from a humble shop of about 10 employees and 3 distributors (Busch, Big Sky, and Heineken), to a dynamic and thriving distributor in the Bighorn Basin with 30+ suppliers and over 20 employees!
“Dad is a true bud and bud light guy with over 30 something years in the beer industry,” explained Joe Kondelis, Jr., Sales Manager with Tanager Beverages. When the opportunity arose to purchase Kenney Inc., Joe Sr. and his wife took the leap and it’s been a wild ride since.
The Kondelis family is still very involved in the day-to-day operations in the business, simply because of their love for the industry and the family-like atmosphere they have instilled at Tanager. Trusted employees keep the wheels turning and customers happy which allows Joe and Diane the freedom to plug Tanager into the community, offering up support and getting involved in any way they can.
“We would like to thank the community for your support and look forward to many more years bringing tasty brews to your local shops!”
