Red Diamond Coffee and Tea Co., one of the three oldest coffee, tea and foodservice companies in the U.S. continuously operated by the same family, repeats as the winner of the Alabama Region of the ‘Social Madness’ contest hosted by American City Business Journals, a national publication of 40 business newspapers across the country.

The Social Madness Challenge is a one-of-a-kind competition that measures a company’s social media engagement. Last year, nearly 4,000 companies participated, generating nearly three-quarters of a million votes. Red Diamond once again proved successful by outscoring competitors throughout the competition.

“Social media is an excellent vehicle for Red Diamond to deliver on our commitment to drive business to our retail partners, communicate efficiently with our consumers and provide great customer service,” said Wilbur Christy, director of innovation at Red Diamond. “Red Diamond has long been recognized for having loyal and enthusiastic fans around the country. We were fortunate to win this competition because our fans engaged with us and with their friends and family. To enjoy Red Diamond is to share it. That’s exactly what our fans did.”

Added Crest Foods buyer David Judd, who recently introduced Red Diamond’s tea products, “Red Diamond’s social media drove their business, and my category to outpace my competition. I’ve rarely seen a new brand come into Oklahoma and perform this well, this fast. Social media was the key.”

Red Diamond has moved on to the national competition, which began July 16.
