WHO I AM
Hi, I’m Dillon the co-owner of Dillonades and I’m 12 years old. My mom and I started Dillonades together during the Summer of 2020. You could say juicing runs in my blood, it started with my mom over 15 years ago. She created “Fruity Girl”, a fruit infused iced tea and lemonade company that she sold out of the trunk of her car every weekend to local barbershops, salons, and businesses along with family & friends. As years went by she lost her passion for Fruity Girl and stopped. When my school went virtual and the world shut down due to COVID-19, I saw that life began to throw my mom lemons, and I decided to partner up with mom and turn those lemons into Dillonades! We have grown tremendously with our newest branding, additional tasty flavors and great service. We look forward to expanding our warehouses and sharing our bottled happiness with the entire world.
As a mother we learn to be creative and innovative with whatever life gives us. Being isolated at home with my son Dillon, we began to think about how we could we bring some joy back into the world. We decided it was time to jump back into the juice business and launched Dillonades. We created a variety of freshly squeezed fruit infused lemonades and our business began to grow. We received lots of media attention and even celebrity endorsements. We found that our customers love the idea of freshly squeezed preservative free lemonade. Each batch is created by a mom and son with love in every bottle. From the recipe to every detail in our packaging and labeling we strive to bring a lemonade experience to each and every customer.
Starting a business during a pandemic was no easy task. on the other hand having the time to be still and focus turned out to be a huge asset to the process. We encountered some obstacles along the way but we learned from every misstep and managed to develop a solid business model.
Having been in the juice business for over 15 years , we decided to keep what knew our customers loved most, freshness. We kept our process freshly squeezed and naturally fruit flavored. Once we added shipping we knew we had to create a packaging strategy that would maintain that freshness all the way to our customers homes. Keeping our customers satisfaction at the top of our business model is the most important piece of who we are.
