With a whopping budget of only $900, we founded Pure Sodaworks Natural Sodas in July 2011. We launched the company with a small food cart, from which we served handmade sodas to thirsty customers at festivals, special events, and farmers markets. Using only herbs, spices, fruit juices, and pure cane sugar, we set about creating dozens of delicious concoctions. From the very beginning, we focused our efforts on developing delightful and unique flavor combinations that would set us apart, and have customers coming back for more.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012, we built a small bottling line and began distributing our signature sodas throughout the Southeastern and Midwestern United States. After years of continued work and steady growth, we began a fruitful two-year partnership with Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores in November of 2017.
Though our Pure Sodaworks brand is now officially retired, we remain incredibly proud of its amazing success!
