About Us

Get To Know Ambassador

Interstate Beverage Corporation opened its doors in June of 1988 by husband and wife Alvaro and Betty Lozano. Initially serving the South Florida area with one product line, their hard work and dedication led to the expansion of the business, which quickly became a staple amongst the Hispanic community.

Continuing their steady growth, in 1999 the Ambassador line of sodas was born to target the Colombian consumer. Since then, Ambassador has become an iconic drink not only for Colombians, but for soda lovers across the world. Today, Ambassador can be found in restaurants and bakeries and in major supermarket chains in Florida, Georgia, Colorado, Texas, California, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, Central & South America, and Europe.

In addition to our original product lines, we stock over 400 different products ranging from household names like Coca-Cola and Arizona to ethnic products from Venezuela, Thailand, Brazil, and more.

Today, we count with a fleet of trucks, a team of dedicated multi-lingual professionals and a 30,000 square foot facility, but we still have one goal in mind: serving others.

Interstate Beverage Corporation has the power of a growing corporation with the care and passion that led us to get started in 1988. Let us help you serve your customers the way we serve ours.
