In 1992, Robert “Bobby” Nichols purchased Shreveport Budweiser which is now Eagle Distributing of Shreveport.  Out of two warehouse locations in Shreveport and Natchitoches, Eagle Distributing services nine Parishes in Northwest LA covering 6,500 square miles.  Eagle’s mission is to lead with integrity, and provide quality service and profitability to our customers.


Choice Brands, Inc. was founded by Frank Elkins, Jr. in 1954, servicing 15 Parishes (counties) in Northeast Louisiana.  Originally a distributor of beer, wine and liquor, Choice Brands exited the wine and liquor business in 1977 to focus on its fast expanding beer portfolio.  In the early 2000's, Choice Brands acquired two of the remaining three wholesale distributors in the Monroe market.  Today, in addition to beer, the company distributes Red Bull Energy Drink. 

Venture Marketing Corporation (Alexandria) was purchased by the Elkins family in 1973 and covers an additional 7 Parishes in Central Louisiana with a similar portfolio of beers and Red Bull.  Together with Choice Brands (Monroe), the combined companies service over 1,200 retail customers. 

Both companies are able to provide best in class service to their retail customers through an unwavering commitment to quality, customer service, and a passion for craft beer that is unparalleled in the market. mOfficers are Frank Elkins, III, President, Jeff Elkins, Vice-President and Chrissy Evans, Secretary-Treasurer.
