Soda Folk was founded in 2015 by Ken Graham, a native from the state of Colorado. When he moved from America to the UK, he found himself homesick for the taste of Coloradoan root beer. As a result, Ken decided it was time to bring craft sodas to the UK. By working with a craft beer friend in the UK, as well as skilled craft-brewers in Colorado, Ken was able to make his recipes a reality, using only the highest-quality ingredients to guarantee great tasting soda, every time.
A range of craft sodas
Soda Folk currently sells a range of craft sodas including Cherry Soda, Root Beer and Cream Soda, all available in 330ml cans. While the sodas were originally aimed at the restaurant trade, as the Soda Folk brand grew in popularity, it entered into an exclusive contract arrangement with Sainsbury’s and the brand is now available in its stores across the country.
Strong team ethos
As the company’s success grew organically, Ken decided it was time to step back from the business and returned to the US. The core team consists of three key people, who work remotely with a variety of partners to forge a strong team ethos. It is a non-traditional way of working but maintains traditional relationships and this works for Soda Folk. Simon Waterfall was appointed as Managing Director and has exciting plans for the company going forward, with a new Grape Soda due to launch in January 2020.
Logistics partner of choice
Simon already has an established relationship with Boughey, having worked with us previously. The service Boughey provided was of the highest-quality and it seemed like a natural move for Soda Folk to team up with Boughey Distribution, as its logistics partner of choice.
Simon is pleased to be working with Boughey once again: “Certainly at a service level, Boughey is a great fit for our logistical needs. Boughey does not present as a big, faceless business, but instead provides a personable, approachable team that still has the skills, experience and acumen we need to get our products out there. As we expand the business to become a multi-million-pound company, it is great to have Boughey on board.”
