Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with David Cubitt, president and CEO of Wasaga Beach Brewing Company, located in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Wasaga Beach Brewing Company is a cool "beach lifestyle" beer company. We are about sand in your toes and rock and roll on the radio. We're located on the shores of the longest freshwater beach in the world (87,500 beer cans long), where for generations, Canadians have left behind the daily grind to seek sun and fun. We put a bit of that in every beer we brew.
Tell us about yourself
I come from the music business, and with a marketing background, I had worked on relationship and brand building while developing exciting concepts that would resonate with the audience. A beach beer, in the beach, from a beach guy with a passion equals a resounding recipe for success and creating mutual bliss.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Building my music business from the basement to a 15 million dollar business...selling it at the right time, and starting a beer company with the same values, persistence, and passion.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Good times happen, and bad times happen - learning to cross that bridge every day with the same attitude that rubs off on your team!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Believe in yourself, have passion, persistence, and a solid business plan.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I am really excited about the launch of our 53" Mobile Pop Up Beach Bar, being introduced in the Spring of 2022! It is going to be unbelievable! Email me for images and description!
