Second City Syrups: An Adventure into the Coupling of Culture, Community and Creation

- Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Second City Syrups is a delicious line of herb infused syrups designed to add unique flavors to Lattes, Teas, Lemonade, and Cocktails. Created by Chicago based business partners Justin Buege and Chris Thomas, Second City Syrups seeks to serve the Chicago area by offering a premium product while supporting the direct community through joint responsibility in agriculture.

Second City Syrups takes pride in a holistic approach. From seed to harvest, all of the herbs used are locally grown in urban farms, back yards and rooftops in the city. Second City Syrups also strives to cultivating creativity. With unique flavors, like sage, cucumber and rosemary, Second City Syrups gives individuals the opportunity to have fun and be creative with the flavors while making drinks at their parties, picnics and events.

Justin has worked with StartingUp Now to better map out financial planning for Second City Syrups. Justin’s work with StartingUp Now has helped him to develop a recipe for the company’s future success. Justin and Chris hope to expand to grocery stores, cafes, and special events.
