There is nothing that brings families together better than a little friendly competition. That was the case for our two Northern Kansas Account Managers and husband and wife, Christian Espinoza Salazar and Samantha Espinoza. Both employees participated in the National Coke Zero Sugar March Madness Display Competition in honor of March Madness. With a trip to the Men’s Final Four on the line, Sam and Christian both created amazing displays incorporating an array of products from Core Power and Coke Zero, to Fanta, Gold Peak, and Powerade.

Samantha’s display was selected as 1 of the 4 grand prize winners and snagged an expense-paid trip to Houston for the Men’s Final Four! Christian’s display was selected as 1 of the 15 2nd-place winners, and he took home a Coke Zero Cooler and a signed autograph from an NCAA talent partner! Christian was still able to experience the trip to the final four as Samantha’s plus-one! Congratulations to Samantha and Christian for their tremendous work and for making Heartland proud. Both employees always do a phenomenal job; this recognition is well deserved!
