Tampico Beverages Inc. wants to break into the carbonated drink industry, a move the company hopes will ultimately pave the way to expanding into different product categories. Tampico is best-known for selling refrigerated juice products heavily favored by Hispanic consumers around the world, but it wants to be much more, said Scott Miller, Tampico's chief executive officer. The company will test several flavors of carbonated soft drinks in Chicago and Texas in the second quarter as it tries to steal market share from Jarritos, the top-selling carbonated soft drink among Hispanics in the U.S. Tampico will launch its first national advertising campaign in the form of television spots and billboards this spring to help strengthen brand awareness as it looks to build out its product portfolio. Previous marketing efforts have been more grass roots, such as ”banners at festivals or parades,” Mr. Miller said. "We want to get the message out that we are a national brand," Mr. Miller said. Once that is accomplished, Tampico will embark on a global advertising program that would include its core markets of Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Brazil and Africa.
