Dear Friends & Family!
I would like to sincerely express my gratitude for your loyalty and support for our business, family and letting us serve you all these years. Also most importantly, for making us feel so welcome in the beloved Guelph community! We couldn’t have done it without you! As a long standing customer, I would like to share some important information with you. We are happy to announce major growth opportunities for the business. However, with opportunities there are challenges and we need your help!
Our multifaceted expansion plan involves growth specifically with our line of refreshing and healthy specialty drinks. Our next steps include:
- Expanding reach in the general and grocery store market through improving our marketing materials and sales strategy
- Increasing storage space and distribution channels to meet increasing demand
- Producing locally and sustainably
- Purchasing a truck to distribute product and serve as a drink truck at events.
How You Can Help
We are launching a Kickstarter campaign in support of this expansion plan, which will go live on Friday September 22nd, 2017. The launch party that day will be from 5-8 PM at our store at 74 Ontario Street in Guelph, featuring complimentary music by Laura Bailey, comedy by The Making Box and samples of Hibiscus Tea and snack. We would love for you to come enjoy the show and find out how you can get involved in this exciting development!
