Hangover Joe's Recovery Shots, the nation's number one hangover recovery shot and the leader in the functional lifestyle beverage market, is celebrating a banner year and preparing for a pain-free New Year’s Eve! In 2012, Hangover Joe's Inc. became a publicly traded company (OTCBB: HJOE) and saw a 200% growth in sales from 2011. The brand also began international distribution shipping product to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Said CEO Michael Jaynes, "We see continued growth and success across the U.S. and around the world for the brand because consumers love our product." As the world's biggest party nears, Hangover Joe's is gearing up for New Year's Eve 2013 with sampling teams prepared to distribute Hangover Joe’s Recovery Shots at several of the nation's largest celebrations. "We're going to be in Times Square in New York City, in the French quarter in New Orleans, as well as on Fremont Street in Las Vegas," said co-founder and marketing manager Shawn Adamson. In 2013, Hangover Joe's Recovery Shots will continue to emerge as the next big beverage product with their strategic relationship with the Warner Bros. film franchise The Hangover. "With the Memorial Day weekend release of The Hangover 3 and its overall brand awareness, we expect to see exponential growth and even stronger public awareness of our product. It's going to be a very good year," said national sales manager and co-founder Michael Malm. Taken the morning after and featuring a patent-pending blend of antioxidants, vitamins and herbs, Hangover Joe's Recovery Shot has become the favorite choice of consumers needing fast and effective relief from alcohol consumption. In fact, Hangover Joe's was recently awarded ‘Best New Shot of 2012’ by CSN Magazine.
