Company History

The premier beverage distributor in Northeast Indiana

Five Star Distributing made its first deliveries on June 27, 2005. After acquiring an existing beer wholesaler, the Team at Five Star immediately set out to become the premier beverage distributor in Northeast Indiana and beyond. Five Star and its Team of beer professionals proudly serves 1,100 retail customers and almost 800,000 consumers in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Grant, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells, and Whitley counties in the Northeast corner of Indiana.

Five Star's never ending journey of constant improvement is grounded in the nurturing and development of its most valuable resources -- its people and its brands. Our people are working together daily to sharpen and improve their skills in Sales, Delivery, Service, and Warehousing to better address our customers' needs. We are proud and passionate in representing over forty different suppliers and collectively nearly one hundred and fifty different brands of beer with a focused determination on growth and opportunity for us and our retail partners; along with an ever escalating level of innovation, variety, and overall satisfaction for our consumers. Our Team is extremely proud of being recognized by Miller Brewing Company for its sales and execution in winning Miller's High Life Achievement Award in 2007 after only our second year in existence!

Five Star is humbled to be able to write another page in its history every day. Our Team has already celebrated significant milestones to date with more on the horizon. In May 2007 we broke ground on our state-of-the-art, 95,000 square foot, distribution facility in Whitley County. Through the dedicated efforts of every member of our Team we made a seamless move, and began delivering from our new home on March 10, 2008. Located at the crossroads of our market we are better situated to service our retailers, and poised to accommodate our growth.

Five Star is excited about its future. We look forward to the challenges and victories in building our brands and our organization. Thank you for taking an interest in our company and our industry. Cheers!
