Stacy Jurich, Boochy Mama’s Kombucha, Toledo , OH
Q: When did you first discover kombucha?
A: 2006 a friend bought me a GT’s green kombucha – I loved it!
Q: Why did you start your own kombucha company?
A: I knew kombucha was coming to the Midwest, and I wanted to be the first to bring it to our corner of Ohio. Plus, I had already started a small, bicycle-delivery home kombucha business without intending to do so; taking it to the next step (commercial) seemed like an organic next step.
Q: What is your favorite flavor of kombucha?
A: I like Brew Dr.’s Clear Mind.
Q: What is your former/current other life or career?
A: Prior to starting Boochy Mama’s, I was a substitute teacher and tennis coach. After a year and half into the business, I was able to quit my other jobs and do this full time.
Q: What is a saying that you live by?
A: Sustainability on all fronts; emotional, physical, environmental, economical, mental.
