Mitchell Distributing Company was recognized by Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABI) as one of the top wholesalers in the country at the annual Wholesalers Excellence Meeting last week in Las Vegas. Mitchell Distributing was selected as an inaugural recipient of the Ambassadors of Excellence Award, a prestigious award granted to wholesalers who have earned Top Performer status for three consecutive years. Only seven ABI wholesalers, out of more than 700 around the country, received the award. 


In recognition, Mitchell Distributing will receive a commemorative Clydesdale trophy to be delivered to Tupelo by the world-famous Clydesdale hitch. 


The goals of the Ambassadors of Excellence (AOE) Program are to evaluate the performance of key wholesaler business processes, stimulate constant improvement through excellence in routine execution, encourage wholesalers to strive to be the best, and recognize and reward excellence. 


With warehouse locations in Meridian, Leland, Columbus and Tupelo, Mitchell Distributing is the second-largest Anheuser-Busch wholesaler in Mississippi, serving approximately one-fourth of Mississippi's counties. Mitchell Distributing is a third-generation, family-owned company with roots dating back to the 1930s.
