Coors Distributing Company of Denver – Why Work For Us?


Founded in 1971, Coors Distributing Company (CDC) started as the distributor for the Coors Banquet brand in the Denver Metro area. We began by distributing 16 SKUs via our 14 trucks, with the support of our 50 employees. Since then we have grown to nearly 400 employees, 98 delivery trucks, over a hundred sales vans, and an advanced warehouse picking system.  CDC has also evolved with the dynamic Denver market, expanding our beer portfolio to over 31 breweries, hundreds of different brands, and thousands of SKUs.

We are an LLC of MillerCoors but operate independently, building strategies and making decisions locally for our business. We believe this structure gives us a competitive advantage as it gives us insight into how breweries operate while also affording us valuable tools and resources to deliver excellence every day.

Our distribution territory spans from Boulder to Monument, and from Evergreen to Limon. View our territory map here! (see our Service Area map for specifics) We sell our products directly to bars, restaurants, liquor stores, grocery stores, convenience stores, sports and entertainment venues, and specialty licensed events.

CDC strives to promote teamwork in all areas of our business. All 400+ employees play an intricate role in distributing our beer into the Colorado market. We all collaborate to price, prepare, sell, and deliver our 32 beer brands to thousands of liquor retailers statewide. From the moment a case of beer enters our building, our 5 departments work hand-in-hand to make sure our consumers are able to enjoy beer as much as we do. Whether through cross-departmental communication or simply lending a hand where needed, CDC can accomplish this with teamwork.

At Coors Distributing Company, we are passionate and committed to our employees and our community. We encourage all employees to be involved and engaged in our various teams; these teams not only aid the company, but give our employees an extra opportunity to contribute and develop additional skills or experiences to be successful. Our FUSION Employee Council focuses on three key areas: diversity & inclusion, community outreach, and internal performance development through a “future leaders” track.

Each of these groups has annual goals and projects focused around one of these three areas. For example, CDC partners with various non-profit organizations such as St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Mile High United Way, and over 50 local charities in Colorado. Internally, the teams create a Wall of Wins highlighting departmental and individual monthly “wins” and celebrate many diverse groups through hosting themed happy hours and various events throughout the year to educate, build awareness and engage employees.

One of our fundamental focuses at CDC is keeping our employees safe and our building up to standard through our “Target Zero Program”. We have created a number of teams that focus on ensuring zero injuries in the workplace and complying with OSHA regulations. We believe that all injuries are preventable and our goal is to make sure that we are creating an environment where employees can leave work the same way they arrived and we do this through empowering every employee to be a safety leader to ensure they are able to go home to their friends and families in safe manner.

These safety teams are comprised of cross-departmental individuals to promote and maintain a safe workplace; they meet monthly to collaborate, brainstorm and take action in their area(s) of expertise. The eight teams are: Target Zero, Emergency Response, Machine Safety, Safety Inspections, Ergonomics, Electrical Safety, Powered Industrial Truck (PIT), and Lock Out Tag Out Try Out. Where some companies “talk” a lot about safety, we empower employees to be safety leaders, to take action and help influence change through our Near Miss and Eyewitness program that both recognizes those who go above and beyond, but also commits to organizational change, to actually address the safety hazards and concerns that are brought up by our great employees.


Our employees drive our success here at CDC, therefore, we believe in investing in the health and welfare of each one of them both professionally and personally. CDC offers a variety of benefits to our employees that range from health insurance to assistance programs. Below are some examples of the benefits we offer here at CDC:

  • Health, Dental, & Vision Benefits Day One of Hire
