Kent's Soda Company

Career Highlights:
Owner of Kent's Soda Company

Community Involvement:
Kent Just turned 10 this August. He still loves his company and introduces himself as “Kent Melville, Owner of Kent’s Soda company.” Kent has recently hired a sales person. We are in a lot of meetings lately as the story got ahead of us, so we are trying to play catch up and plan for a much larger market than previously anticipated. This November we will be traveling to Florida to announce a strategic partnership with one of the leading Autism Non-profits (details to be released later) in the country. We anticipate that partnership will provide well over a million marketing exposures to our target market, at no cost to us, every month. It is exciting to see how this is all coming together.
