Pure Sodaworks and Everyday Eclectic will host the grand opening of their new 4,500-square-foot headquarters called The River Street Makery May 26-28. The new location features retail frontage for both companies, production space for Everyday Eclectic’s specialty body and home treats, and kitchens for the creative foodie scientists crafting and bottling Chattanooga’s very own natural soda.
“Our approach to all of our products for both companies is the same, so it made perfect sense to move into one combined home in Coolidge Park,” said Tiffany Rogers, founder and co-owner of Everyday Eclectic and Pure Sodaworks. “We use only the best of what nature has to offer in everything we develop, and our new space gives us the chance to share our creations with anyone visiting North Chattanooga.”
The grand opening celebration will span the three-day Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday through Monday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., officially kicking off summer, and delivering fun and specials to all who visit, including:
Giveaways each day for those who check into The Makery on Foursquare
Specials on Everyday Eclectic’s bath, body, and home products
Live music provided by Chattanooga’s Dana Rogers
Visits from The Kettle Corn Man
A variety of artisan soda flavors, including some that will soon be bottled in the facility
“We’ve met so many great people during the past year just selling soda from our cart,” said Shawn Clouse, founder and co-owner of Pure Sodaworks. “Thanks in part to everyone who funded our successful Kickstarter campaign, we now get to serve our unique flavors to even more great people. The grand opening party is our way of saying thanks and reinvigorating what soda means to Chattanooga.”
Revelers can enjoy a number of Pure Sodaworks flavors such as Strawberry Jalapeño, Apple Pie, Hibiscus Lemon, Root Beer #4, Honey Lime, Orange Basil, Lavender Mint, and Ginger Ale. Remaining true to their beginnings, the soda jerks will be serving their brand of bubbly from their soda fountain.
Additionally, Everyday Eclectic’s most popular goods will be available, including their original hand-poured soy candles, handcrafted soaps, and other artisan products.
Everyday Eclectic, founded in 2007, creates handcrafted bath, body, and home products using natural ingredients. Their products can be found at their new storefront, area retail locations, and online at EverydayEclectic.com.
Pure Sodaworks, founded in 2011, produces small-batch natural sodas made with organic herbs, spices, and produce. Their seasonal flavors are often developed using locally sourced ingredients, further contributing to the vitality of Chattanooga’s economy.
