1. Grow Profile: Brooklyn Soda Works

    Brooklyn Soda Works was founded in 2010 by artist Caroline Mak and Chemist Antonio Ramos. What began as a quest for the perfect fizzy refreshment has grown into a humming small business that produces carbonated juices flavored with fresh herbs and spices for local food markets and more than 15 New York State bars and restaurants. In Grow Caroline and Antonio discuss the importance of structuring and incorporating your business to suit your needs and vision, the intricacies of being a food-start up, and how to grow your handmade business without losing a personal touch. I recently profiled them for the DIY Business Association and we discussed how they collaborate to make their business, and personal, relationships work.
