We have been playing around with possible bottle styles, also should they be plastic or glass. The mock-up gives an example of the shape we are moving towards along with a possible sip cap or seal cap.
Glass or Plastic
Some of the collection will be in glass and some plastic. The glass beverage collection are mixtures when combined to be bottled and warehoused contain a level of acids which my cause changes if stored for periods of time in plastic.( This info was a recommendation )
After doing lots of homework, we have decided to use SolarCity
Shotts Beverage Corp has been years in the making, and may take a few more before our opening. Detroit will be the first location. What will make us unique will be our leadership employment community interaction, use of solar technology, pay it forward small business program, community youth robotics workshop and selected beverage products. We believe the future of industry is community building.
We are still pushing ahead, and at times it seems as if we are not getting any closer, but we are. While talking with member of the beverage industry you discover it is not much different from any other industry or business, most believe they don’t have to change or innovate until the change starts affecting their sales.
We have come to agreement with some companies and are working towards a plan of bottling our own product as part of a youth training and employment project.
The next update will offer the youth project plan and some product information.
