We love our loyal customers at the markets we attend regularly and can’t thank you enough - but here’s the deal.
We’re a bootstrap business that has suffered during the pandemic, just like many others have. Unfortunately our startup hasn’t qualified for the majority of the federal support offered to businesses impacted by COVID-19. We want to keep making fun, fizzy drinks for years to come so we’re taking a few steps back to reassess our current circumstances.
We wish we could stay at every market but we have to face the hard truth. The capacity restrictions at farmers’ markets make it impossible for us to continue selling at many of the locations you’ve supported us at for the last eighteen months since we started making the farm fresh flavours you’ve come to love.
BUT the good news is we’re still making soda and there are a few different ways you can get your hands on some bottles. You can visit our farm in Beamsville where you can enjoy an ice cream soda by the orchard while you’re picking up your usual 12-pack. Not able to visit? You can order online and get it delivered directly to your house. You can even sign up for a soda subscription and get a regular monthly delivery of fresh soda, including some subscriber-only flavours and Canalside Soda merch.
The support from you, our customers, has been amazing - thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you at the Soda Shack soon.
