Q. How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
A. In short… a late-night flip cup game! I had just returned from
Shanghai with some stones that I had purchased. After coming
up with a few jewelry designs, the bracelet concept hit me. I
made a few bracelets, but needed something to help made the
shape. Thus, a red solo cup. The rest is history.
Q. What is unique about your business?
A. We are proud to have a work-force that is right here in our
community. I think this really sets us apart from other
businesses. We have created a cottage industry of women and
men from the community that hand-craft Bourbon and
Boweties from their homes, on their own time. How many
people can go into Nordstrom and purchase an item that was
made by someone in their community? Overall our hometown
roots really set us apart, in our workforce, in our customer
service and approach to business.
