  • Business Plan

    We are expanding into the online retail space at of November 2020. This opens up selling our concentrated syrup across the United States and is an untapped market for us. Beyond soda, we have 7 years of Coffee Industry Roasting and Sourcing under our belts and are currently researching adding a coffee wing onto our Spruce Soda Business. This would roll our rent and production expenses over into our own brick and mortar location where we can have limited hours for pickup or a soda tasting room with coffee provided as well. Passionate and hard working, we are dedicated to craft beverages, and have a following of individuals that believe in our product and our person to not only be brand ambassadors, but a product that practically sells itself once you get it in front of the buyers or consumer.

  • Self Identified Competition

    Northern Soda Co is in Minnesota. They focus on classic 50s style soda fountain beverages that has a branding that screams to kids. They have artificial coloring, and it doesn't work as well with cocktails or jive with adults as a go to for soda purchasing. Joia is another soda company, but is in a position of mainstream business that tends to be a turnoff. Originally ahead of its time for craft beverages, they are not a solid middle option for good soda. Seltzer competitors. Everyone is jumping on board to the seltzer beverages, but this is nothing we are concerned about as we are not going for a low calorie or alcoholic alternative to beer or high fructose beverages. Real juice, whole botanicals, cane sugar, and always done in small batches. Our company is family operated and run, we pride ourselves on using ingredients people can read and understand. Our beverages are crafted to always pair with a cocktail. If the consumer is non-alcoholic or a sober driver, then they can have a soda that is interesting at a brewery instead of just a basic coke while everyone gets a special beer.
