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.
On January 18th, 2018 we attended Media Night with other bloggers and influencers at the brand new SodaRush in Gilbert. From sodas to cookies to ice-cream, we were able to sample everything on the menu and interact with other colleagues.
Jim and Amber (owners) are some of the nicest people you will meet. Right when you walk in you’re treated with sweet smells from their bakery and super friendly team members. The shop is colorful and inviting, and their branding is so eye catching. The décor in their shop is adorable and a great place to hand out with friends.
If you’re looking for a large variety of fancy fountain drinks and some of the most delicious, made from scratch daily, giant cookies you’ll ever eat (they’re award winning!!) this is the place to be!
P.S. They also feature Dole Whip occasionally (it’s always available on their soda truck!), so be sure to follow them on social media to see when it’s available. They also have cotton candy, pretzels, and feature seasonal fudge and cookies of the month.
