Leroy Acurso founded Lucky Distributing. This distributorship carried Lucky Lager and years later acquired the Anheuser-Busch brands.
Lucky Distributing was bought by the Carpenter Family and renamed Sequoia Beverage Company. Dan Bueno Sr. became Vice President of Sequoia Beverage Company, excelled at his new role and immediately became enthralled with selling beer.
In November of 2000, the addition of “Barton Beers” grew the portfolio of brands. Barton Beers is now known as Constellation Brands (Corona, Modelo, etc).
Dan and his wife Rose, acquired 100% of the company in 2005 and turned it into the family business you know today.
Sequoia Beverage was renamed Bueno Beverage Company in 2015 to take on the family name and continue the legacy of Anheuser-Busch and Constellation Brands in Tulare and Kings Counties
The company employs over 160 employees and services 1000 accounts with sales over 5 million cases. The relentless efforts of the employees have contributed to Bueno Beverage Company’s tremendous growth.
