NYSEDC's 900 members work to build vibrant, diverse, and sustainable communities throughout New York State.
Arizona Ice Tea Company
Arizona Ice Tea is a well-known beverage distribution company with annual sales of approximately $600 million. At the time the company approached the IDA for assistance it had out-grown its national headquarters in Lake Success, Nassau County and was seriously considering moving to New Jersey to be near one of its large manufacturing plants. Nassau County did not want to lose the current 120 jobs so the IDA convinced the company to consider building its headquarters on 3 acres of vacant land in Woodbury, Nassau County.
