Guest Chef – SodaRush

Soda Jerk (n:) a person who serves and sells soft drinks and ice cream at a soda fountain.

If you’ve been following along on our Instagram page, then you’ve seen that we have teamed up with Boyd Harrington to create a unique concept of working behind the scenes in local shops. Our goal for the Guest Chef series is to connect better with the companies we love to support and get a feel for what they do for all of us consumers. We had a ton of fun at SodaRush learning how to make different drinks, fresh lemonade and interacting with the customers. Keep an eye out for more to come. 🙂

SodaRush is a family owned and operated Soda Shop.​ Originally from Kansas, Jim and Amber moved to the valley of the sun with their 4 children to open their own soda and cookie shop. They now have two locations in Mesa, and in Gilbert. SodaRush not only only serves their Signature Sips and Gourmet Cookies, they also serve Ice Cream Cones, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade and Coconut Limeade, and also Cotton Candy, Giant Soft Pretzels, and Fruit Puree Parfaits.

Hello Everyone! An Introduction! :)

This is our first blog post and we would love to tell you a little about ourselves. We are Erika and Kaylyn and we’ve been friends for 11 years now! We met when our oldest kids were in Kindergarten together, and now they are Juniors in high school. It’s so crazy how quickly the time has gone, but we’ve become the bestest of friends over the years. We started out by getting together for coffee and lunch while our kids were at school, and at the beginning of last year we thought “if we’re going to get together so often to try out all these amazing places, we should document it and share it all on Instagram,” So, that’s what we decided to do and we have been active on Instagram for nearly a year now, sharing all our favorite SIP (and food!) locations we’ve come across. We thought focusing more on drinks was a unique concept and since we meet up for drinks more than food, Sip So Good was born. 🙂

If you love drinks and food as much as we do make sure to check out our page on Instagram @_sipsogood_. We are also on Facebook, and we are so excited to have started our very own blog where we can expand even more. We absolutely love what we are doing and we love getting out into the community and supporting local businesses. We have met so many amazing people in such a short time, including some pretty incredible business owners who we’ve gotten to know very well. We’ve even met fellow food bloggers too! Not only are we having a blast doing this fun social media blogging stuff, but we’ve made some great friends in the process! 🙂
