LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In many Latin American countries, small “mom-and-pop” grocery stores, or “tienditas,” make up the hub of the neighborhood, providing not only snacks and drinks, but a place to pay a bill, buy a phone, send a money transfer and more. They are essential to the livelihood of many rural communities. For Arca Continental (AC), one of the largest beverage and snack manufacturing companies in Latin America, much of their recent growth has come from expanding their customer base into new markets through strategic mergers and acquisitions. More than sixty percent of their customers are tienditas and much of the business mission centers on empowering these small business owners to succeed. At the same time, AC sells to large corporations and operates over 400 dispersed distribution centers, with over one million transactions daily and four million boxes of product delivered daily.
