Wine, Beer & Spirits to Bring Wahoo Locker Meats to the Masses

Wine, Beer, and Spirits and Wahoo Locker form commercial partnership

Wahoo Locker’s locally sourced meats and related products will be available at Wine, Beer, and Spirits stores in Omaha, Lincoln, Grand Island, and Fremont, Nebraska.

OMAHA, Neb., June 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wine, Beer, and Spirits (“WBS”) is proud to announce that Wahoo Locker’s award-winning products will soon be available for purchase in all WBS stores. Dedicated space is being created in each of WBS’ stores, allowing customers to conveniently browse through hundreds of Wahoo Locker products.

As Nebraska’s largest, locally owned liquor store chain, WBS is constantly seeking out high-quality and complementary products. Family-owned Wahoo Locker fits that bill. Wahoo Locker has been perfecting its recipes for decades, winning hundreds of state and national awards along the way.

The following types of products will be added to WBS stores:

  • Fresh and frozen USDA choice meats – steaks, burger, chicken

  • Award-winning, Wahoo Weiner© – 10+ flavors

  • Cured meats – jerky, sticks, summer sausage – 20+ flavors

  • Gourmet sauces, spices and snacks

  • Seasonal gift sets

“We couldn’t be more excited to add Wahoo Locker products to our stores,” said Beau Starkel, CEO of Wine, Beer, and Spirits. “WBS has become a destination for many shoppers. Adding high quality, locally made meats alongside our vast selection of alcohol will be a big win for our customers.”

“WBS has built a great business across all key markets in Nebraska,” according to Charlie Emswiler, owner of Wahoo Locker. “Our brand is well-known, but our reach is limited. By partnering with WBS, our products will become accessible to most of Nebraska’s population. With their [WBS] foot traffic, we hope to create some new customers as well.”

Construction is near completion at WBS’ West Omaha store and has started at the other locations. Customers are encouraged to monitor each companies’ social media for official announcements on exact opening dates.
