Reasons to Invest

Massive Market - The fountain and ready to drink beverage market is over $250 Billion
Experienced Team - CEO was the US exclusive partner/distributor of Soda Stream Professional (Soda Stream acquired by Pepsi Co for $3.2B) and served as the chairman of AquaTal Group
Strong Traction - Machines are already operating in hotels, restaurants, and offices including Holiday Inn, Bareburger, and Allianz

Smart Soda is the elite healthy beverage alternative ready to disrupt the conventional $250B+ U.S. soft drinks market.

Smart Soda introduces

  • One of the world's only vitamin-infused fountain sodas
  • One of the world's only CBD-infused fountain sodas
  • The most unique unlimited alkaline water systems for restaurants

An unmet demand 

A revolution is taking the water and soft drink industry by storm. In 2018, for the 14th consecutive year, carbonated soft drink sales declined, creating unprecedented opportunity to disrupt a largely overlooked US$250B U.S. soft drinks market 

 

Health-conscious baby boomers and millennials with lofty quality expectations are driving the market, snubbing both traditional soft drinks loaded with high-fructose corn syrup and their “diet” counterparts that are muddled with unidentifiable artificial sweeteners. Instead, they’re demanding healthier alternatives.

The market opportunity 

Smart Soda is uniquely poised to take advantage of this paradigm shift. Smart Soda’s exclusive rent-to-own, all-inclusive package brings together the product solution, financing and service, allowing our customers to streamline processes while they generate additional revenue – up to $20,000 per month – by locally bottling and selling water and soda drawn from their machine. 


Most of our current revenue is coming from commercial sales to niche restaurants, vegan eateries, and more health-focused establishments. Our fountain soda, soda gun, and other commercial equipment options have also been extremely well-received. To help enhance our brand alongside our customers’ in a sustainable way, we also sell customizable bio-degradable cups and reusable bottles. In 2020, we plan to expand our brand and launch a pre-packaged, ready-to-drink product line, with a goal to be on major retail shelves within the year.

Pioneering into CBD-infused craft sodas

Like all our products, our CBD-infused sodas made with alkaline water, contain only organic cane sugar and are 100% natural, vegan, kosher, antioxidant-rich and gluten-free. They are crafted with 20mg of the highest quality, USDA organic, and biodynamically grown hemp. 

 

Unlike THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, CBD doesn’t impact the mental state. It’s largely known for its healing and wellness properties. CBD-infused drinks are increasing in both popularity and availability as cannabis products and marijuana become legalized in states across the US. As Americans are becoming health-conscious and avoiding traditional sodas, CBD-infused beverages are becoming widely accepted for personal wellness use and anti-inflammatory treatments.

 

Smart Soda's CBD-infused sodas are/will be available as follows: 

 

Bag-in-a-box (BIB) – for commercial use 

Smart Soda's BIB is the optimal and most economical solution for restaurants, bars, offices, and other organizations currently using a soda fountain or a soda gun. The product is delivered as a standard BIB, containing syrup-infused with 20mg USDA organic and biodynamic CBD per 16oz serving of soda. 

 

Each BIB contains 5 gallons of syrup and designed to produce about 500 16oz servings of CBD-infused soda. 

 

Ready-to-drink (RTD) – coming in 2020 

Our RTD bottles are perfect for consumers on the go. These 16oz drinks are made using the same natural ingredients as our Bag-in-a-box formula but bottled in a way that's made with the end consumer in mind.

"Smart Soda Immunity Boost".

over 1 year ago

The COVID-19 virus has affected every one of us, as well as our plans and priorities. Last month we have announced our RTD (Ready-to-drink beverages) strategy and plan, which includes 3 phases.

PHASE III — SMART SODA CARE BEVERAGES has included a product called “Smart Soda Immunity Power”, which is a delicious beverage that is infused with 1200 mg of Vitamin C, ginseng, elderberry, Vitamin B, Zinc. 

While Immunity products are flying off the shelves, we have instructed our team to reprioritize the RTD line and work on the “Smart Soda Immunity Power” as the first priority item with minimum time to market. 

With your investment, we will be able to boost marketing, production and deliver a product that can't be more relevant than now to our new reality.

Panic buying of immune products causes shortfalls; greater supply gaps loom in months ahead!

It’s Your Life, Make It A Brilliant One

over 1 year ago

RTD - Ready-to-drink beverages, or RTDs, are single-use beverages that are packaged ready for immediate consumption upon purchase.

Beverage products consolidate as the fastest-growing HPP sector in the world. This growth is the consequence of consumers desiring fresher, better-for-you foods and beverages.

Consumer awareness for health and wellness, demand for clean label and functionality are just some of the contributing factors pushing this rapid growth in the RTD category.

Smart Soda hires Neil Patel Digital for Marketing efforts.

over 1 year ago

Dear Shareholders, 

We are excited to announce our new digital marketing direction.  After months of weighing out the options, our executive committee has taken a proactive approach with NP Digital. 

In the months prior to our Start Engine launch, organic soda pops was acquired with high expectations in sight. The result however, did not deliver fruitful outcomes.  

While organic soda pops is a great website, and initially seemed like an excellent fit for Smart Soda, months of collaboration proved otherwise.  As part of the initial engagement, we were to “employ” its founder. The website is currently promoting mostly ready to drink beverages. We were under the impression that the acquisition will be beneficial for Smart Soda. After working for a few months, we have decided to change the business model and the direction of our digital marketing. We have hired the world's top online agency, "Neil Patel Digital," which helped brands like Amazon, Microsoft, Airbnb, Google, Thomson Reuters, Viacom, NBC, Intuit, Zappos, American Greetings, General Motors, and SalesForce. It is with absolute certainty the best decision for our company and shareholders.

We are working closely with Neil's team in NP Digital and are launching a strong online campaign next week. We have updated our website www.smartsodagroup.com, and plan to be the online leader for healthy beverage alternatives.

Thank you for your unwavering support and trust.  We receive daily emails of encouragement and ideas.  We are so excited to be on this journey with you.  Let’s make history together.

Dirt Burger’s real scoop on Smart Soda!

over 1 year ago

There is nothing more authentic than a true customer testimonial on your products.  Dirt Burger’s CEO and Culinary Director, Christopher Place, sits down for a one-on-one, to give all the scoop on Smart Soda.

Chris is a Certified Executive Chef (CEC) from the American Culinary Federation and has a wide range of culinary experience, including private restaurants, hotels, corporate dining, and recently serving as the executive chef for the office of the president at Iowa State University. Chris was adamant about using Smart Soda as a healthy beverage option for all of his clients.


Q.  How would you compare the taste of Smart Soda’s beverages compared to others?     

A.  The flavors are pronounced, and clean. It is a superior product.


Q.  How would you describe the alkaline water that is being produced by the smart soda unit?      

A.  Honestly, this is the best tasting water, and ice cubes. Perfect amount of mineral.


Q.  How many beverages have you sold since the install?   

A.  We have sold 25,000 beverages since 6/2019 (in one location).


Q.  What would you say in general about your overall experience with SmartSoda and the service that’s been provided?       

A.  We have had a great experience. They are very knowledgeable and take great pride in their incredible products. 


Q.  How has your experience been with Michael “ Micky” Stefanov?             

A.  Micky has taken great care of us. We are looking forward to working with Micky as we continue to grow. He is THE problem solver!


Dirt Burger was conceived in 2016 when a chef, an organic farmer, restaurateur, and an artist realized the lack of healthy fast food options available. “If you wanted food delivered to you it was likely greasy pizza or Chinese”. So they put their collective minds together and a concept for Dirt Burger grew right out of the ground. 

Most vegan cuisine establishments have a vibe that fits the stigma of vegan eaters being pretentious. The founders of Dirt Burger knew their business had to be different. It had to be memorable and it had to be inviting to all diets. The driving force behind the Dirt Burger menu is flavor. The kind of flavor you expect from a good burger.

Lastly, Dirt Burger needed to be affordable. Most vegan food is expected to be more expensive than typical meals. The Dirt Burger model allows for less expensive options that are still healthier and equally flavorful.
