How to Start a Drink Company — Beverage Boot Camp Episode 1

Published on:

May 11, 2018

Welcome to the new school. Beverage Boot Camp will teach you how to start a drink company and change what the world is drinking!

A few years ago, Flavorman hosted a class called Beverage Bootcamp. The goal of the class was to get aspiring beverage entrepreneurs educated on the basics of the beverage industry and help them get up and running as quickly as possible. While the content was strong and our students learned a lot, it wasn't the perfect tool — yet. Our client base is international and travelling was a bit too much for students other than the most invested (or local) to bite off.

Fast forward to January, 2018, and we finally decide to pull the Beverage Bootcamp curriculum out of mothballs and convert it into a free online course designed as a series of short videos on relevant topics. Episode 1 provides an introduction on how to start a beverage company.

We're starting with the basics: How do you turn your idea into an actual product? What partners will you need? What costs and regulations should you be aware of? After a few episodes of introductory material, we'll start getting more into the weeds of how to approach making specific types of drinks, labeling, packaging, and more.

We'll be responsive too; if you have questions that need answering, please ask in the comments of the video. We'll answer, and if we get enough demand on a certain topic, we might make an entire episode on it.

Of course, whenever you're ready to get started on developing your dream drink, we hope you'll consider partnering with the beverage experts at Flavorman. From start through finish, Flavorman's tried and true process is designed to help entrepreneurs like you be successful as you launch your dream drink on the market. See how we do it here.
