In our 75th year in business, we are proud to announce we have won the MolsonCoors President’s Award for the second consecutive year and 10th time overall.
Only 32 beverage distributors nationwide earn this prestigious award each year. Winning the award twice in two years is uncommon and a testament to the hard work and creativity of the DDC team, said DeCrescente Distributing Company President C.J. DeCrescente.
“We set a high bar here,” DeCrescente said. “Each year, we create a strategic plan for each of our suppliers to help take their products to new heights. Winning this award proves that our entire team brought their A-Game to help us achieve our ambitious goals for the MolsonCoors family of brands in 2022.”
In addition to winning the President’s Award, DDC is one of seven MolsonCoors Founders Award finalists. This award recognizes the nation’s top MolsonCoors distributor for exemplary sales and distribution performance over the last year. DeCrescente is the only distributor in the nation to have ever won the Founders Award four consecutive times.
The Founders Award winner will be announced later this year.
In 2020, C.J. DeCrescente was awarded the MolsonCoors “Legends” award for his impact on the beverage industry. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Carmine “Carm” DeCrescente Sr., who was named a MillerCoors “Legend” in 2005.
In addition to awards from MolsonCoors, DDC has been named to the Albany Business Review’s “Best Places to Work” list for 13 consecutive years (2010 to 2022). The company was named one of the publication’s “Healthiest Employers” for the past four years (2019 to 2022). In 2021, DeCrescente was named ABR’s “Family-Owned Business of the Year.”
DDC has also won the first-place Fleet Safety Award from the Trucking Association of New York (TANY) for six consecutive years (2018 to 2023).
We proudly distribute more than 11 million cases of beer, soft drinks, and snacks to 11 counties in the Greater Capital Region, including Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, and Washington counties.
