Founded by Edward Tanczos in Bethlehem, Pa. in 1960, the Beverage Distributor – Cigar Store business now has two locations. Led by second-generation family members Mark Tanczos and his wife Donna and Daniel Tanczos and his wife Mimi.
Our beer distributor business is a member of the Malt Beverage Distributor Association (MBDA). But this family run beer store isn’t just about selling cans and bottles, asserted Mark Tanczos, son of the founder and now a co-owner. “We sell fun! And it’s a great atmosphere to work in!”
The Tanczos Beverages approach to delivering value and enjoyment to customers can be seen in the company’s tagline: “Reward yourself for less.” That healthy attitude has driven the company’s over 50-year track record of success. What keeps people coming back is Tanczos’ basic business courtesy: remembering customers and knowing them by name.
Even with the constant presence of family, Tanczos Beverages calls on other talented people to help the business grow. Josh Pierce manages the Northampton store and is assisted by Ryan Verret, and the Bethlehem store is managed by Chris Matla and is assisted by Jason Hahn. Owner Mark Tanczos said, “I attribute our company’s success to my father’s hard work, integrity and his example-not only to me but to everyone who worked with him. It is also attributed to loyal, hardworking employees who go the extra mile to satisfy the customers.”
Tanczos was even recently named one of the “79 most remarkable retailers in the country” by Draft Magazine. From the reputation we have built over the years, we have continued to follow tradition while adapting to the trends in beer and cigars. As a local domestic, imported, and craft beer distributor with two locations, we service the entire Lehigh Valley, but have people that come from a much greater distance to take advantage of our low prices and great service. That’s because we carry some of the best beers in the world, including top beer brands and the most popular craft beers on the market. The beverage business has changed over the course of 50 years, and Tanczos Beverages is always aiming to lead.
Located in both Bethlehem and Northampton, we serve customers from Catasauqua, Hellertown, Coplay, and Emmaus PA areas.
