Southern to Purchase Odom’s Interest in Pacific Northwest
Southern Wine & Spirits has struck an agreement to acquire the balance of Odom Corp's stake in their Odom-Southern joint-venture for the wine and spirits business. That covers Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Wyoming and Utah. As a result, Odom will focus exclusively on its beer, soft drink and non-alcoholic beverage business in the Northwest and Alaska. They will continue to "partner with Southern in Alaska as well as in the back of the house and on operations in the Pacific Northwest," said Odom chief John Odom.
