Q&A With Adam Vitale – President of G&M Distributors, Inc.

We had the opportunity to speak with Adam Vitale, president of G&M Distributors, Inc. We Deliver in Chicago is proud to call G&M Distributors, Inc. one of its members and a valued partner to the non-alcoholic beverage industry.

Adam answered some of our questions about the company and the industry:

What is G&M Distributors, Inc.’s impact in Illinois?
G&M has approximately 130 full-time employees. We service 24 counties and have more than 2,200 customers.
Can you describe how the non-alcoholic beverage industry impacts your business?
The non-alcoholic beverage business is a large and important portion of G&M’s business. It directly impacts our team and the company’s growth. The non-alcoholic beverage industry directly impacts Main Street businesses. This includes local businesses like grocery stores, small retailers, restaurants, bars and more – all of which generate sales tax dollars in our communities.
What is your message for Illinois legislators? And how would you suggest people concerned about the industry get involved in the soda tax issue? Illinois is a great state, but many of our residents and businesses have lost faith. We need to restore this faith through comprehensive reform at all levels of the government. One industry should not be targeted. I suggest people concerned with the potential soda tax speak with their legislators and ask them to look at comprehensive, long-term strategies that are pro-business. We should be the number one state in the country and an example to others.
Why is it important for small businesses, distributors, others to work together to advocate for Illinois’ business community? We need a united business front in Illinois, across all industries. We need reforms that will enable us to grow and not consider leaving the state. Working together for a common goal will return Illinois to greatness.
