Hi, I'm a college student interested in the Beverage Industry, from an Independent, Small Operations Point of View.
I am looking for information about:
1. Finding a place to develop my intial drinks
- Orange - Root Beer - Cola - Etc -
2. A place that can bottle the drinks for me and put my labels on them.
Is there a place that does all 3? Make the Drink, Bottle, Label, Package?
I just want to help finance my college education and do something I love and am good at to help deliver a common product in a new creative way. Thats what I do, create creative solutions.
Since I'm starting small, I'd like to maybe develop a few hundread bottles and distribute them myself locally to small coffee shops, grocery stores, college cafe's, etc, places that conform to the little guy.
Any insight would be helpful, people to call, places to research. Anybody who also was in a position like me just starting out who would like to share their experiences, I'd love to hear them.
Thanks again everybody
