“That’s a major thing for us--expanding and serve a wider geographic region,” Sharma said.
They also plan to launch two non-kombucha drinks. One is a drink made from unprocessed cane. The other drink, which Sharma said he couldn’t discuss in great detail, is “an extension of the Wild brand.”
It has been a fairly fast ascent for Sharma and his two business partners, Sergio Malarin and Adam Bufano, who are stepbrothers and the friends who introduced Sharma to kombucha when they were all in high school.
The three started the company in 2015, when they were serving their drinks out of the side of a juice shop in Hampden. Six months later they were picked up by Whole Foods Market. The three quit their jobs when they got picked up by the supermarket giant. Another six months later, they were in their current Timonium facility preparing for their coming expansion.
