In 1998, Faygo Beverages, Inc. began distributing the Ohana (a Hawaiian word that means “family”) brand of non-carbonated soft drinks. Faygo Beverages, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Beverage Corporation, which also owns Shasta. In 2007, Faygo celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Faygo brands received some high praise from the culinary industry when it was recently announced that the September 2009 issue of Bon Appétit magazine ranked Faygo Root Beer as the best tasting American root beer describing it as “dry and crisp, with a frothy head, a good bite and a long finish.”
