About Us
Chuck Evans was born in Kentucky in 1938. He later moved with his family to Ohio but returned to his roots and attended Western Kentucky University. He opened the first Chuck Evans liquor store in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1976. In 1981, he and his father became partners and the two opened another store at Exit 28 in Bowling Green. The newest addition thrived, and was recognized as one of the top / best stores in the state of Kentucky during the 1980ís.

Chuckís father passed away in the mid 80ís. He continued moving forward with the business, and over the next several years, Chuck grew his small chain from two stores to four. The four stores continued to thrive over the next 30 years, and the chain was rated one of the best liquor chains in the state of Kentucky.

Chuck was an advocate of hard work, dedication, and always putting the customer first. He believed in providing excellent customer service and supporting the local community. Chuck was also a philanthropist, giving his time and contributions to various organizations in Bowling Green and the surrounding communities.

Unfortunately, Chuck Evans passed away in January 2010. He will be missed, but his love for the industry and the community lives on.

The Evans family sold the Chuck Evans Liquor Stores to a family-owned liquor store chain, United Package Liquors, based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Although the stores are under new management, when you visit one of the four Chuckís locations, you will find that not much has changed. The Evans family remains in management roles, and the owners of United Package Liquors of Kentucky believe in similar business practices and structure as Chuck Evans did.

United Package Liquors is very customer and community oriented and will continue to revolutionize the liquor industry in Kentucky.

Mission Statement

United Package Liquors is quickly expanding. In the past six years, the Indianapolis-based chain has nearly doubled in size from 13 to 23 stores and receives at least two or three phone calls a month from other owners wanting to sell their stores to the company.

Founded in 1964 by Leon Riggs, the chain grew over the years from a single store to a dozen. At the same time, Riggs also started Lor Corporation, a successful commercial real estate development company.

We will continue to revolutionize the industry by keeping ourselves knowledgeable of the current trends and providing our expertise to our clientele. We hope you have a pleasant shopping experience with us.
