Created in 2019, Prestige Beverage is a Las Vegas based beverage and hospitality industry brokerage and consulting group seeking to partner with the most premium and niche products and concepts. The group was created when founder Angelo DiNardo, a 20 year beverage industry professional, noticed a number of cutting edge brands and concepts that did not have adequate exposure and support in the industry community centric, extremely lucrative, and highly competitive Las Vegas market. With experience in both beverage operations and supplier sales, he decided to create a group focused on both helping to introduce and partner these concepts to Las Vegas and Las Vegas to these concepts.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Angelo attended Central Catholic High School of Pittsburgh and went on to study Economics and Constitutional Law at Allegheny College located in Northwest Pennsylvania. There, he balanced work as a bartender, athletics in both football and hockey, along with his studies. Upon graduation, he immediately found himself bartending and supervising a gastro pub in Pittsburgh. Shortly after, Angelo accepted a position doing sales for a brokerage in the home lending industry in Las Vegas, Nevada, which he now calls home since 2005. After a few short years in the home lending industry, he found himself working at a casino as a bartender’s apprentice while he pursued other opportunities.
Working at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Angelo found himself intrigued with the complex and fast paced beverage hospitality industry and advanced his career by accepting a position in management. Gaining valuable experience and relationships within Las Vegas and the MGM Resorts International family, he worked at various properties including The Mirage, Mandalay Bay, and was part of the opening team for Aria Las Vegas. He furthered his experience holding various positions focusing on guest service, operations management, supplier marketing support management, and union partnerships. He also achieved various bartending, spirits, and wine certifications during this time frame.
After 7 years in operations with MGM Resorts International, Angelo decided to expand his experience by trying the sales side of the beverage hospitality industry. He first worked for Red Bull North America as the Las Vegas Market sales representative. There, he managed partnerships with just about every major hotel, casino, resort, restaurant, and nightlife group on the Las Vegas Strip driving sales support for these partners, and sales and brand recognition and growth for Red Bull. After 3 years with Red Bull, Angelo was approached by a cutting-edge startup company Freshbev who makes Cold Pressed High Pressure Processed bar mixers and juices. Intrigued and passionate about working to grow a brand, he accepted the role representing Freshbev Craft Juicery and their staple product RIPE Juice in the western US. With a focus in expanding the brand in Las Vegas, Angelo grew this business to over 1 million in sales in his short time with Freshbev. With the creation of Prestige Beverage, Angelo and his group still continue a relationship with Freshbev today and a growing list of premium niche brands.
