First opened by the Murray family in the 1950s, Albany Beverage Company was created to serve Southwest Georgia, ensuring that retailers across Southwest Georgia could provide customers with a full range of beverages.

After prohibition was repealed in the 1930s, heavy federal, state, and local regulations prevented alcohol manufacturers from selling directly to retailers. Instead, manufacturers were required to sell alcoholic products through wholesale distributors. Initially, this process created enormous difficulties for small businesses, especially businesses outside of metropolitan areas. Without a wholesale distributor nearby, it was nearly impossible for local businesses to provide their customers with alcoholic beverages.
