How it all began…
Lori’s Original Lemonade’s mission is to produce unique lemonades using high quality, organic products in an environmentally responsible manner. Outstanding customer service is provided by a team of empowered and dedicated professionals, allowing us to grow and prosper alongside our customers.
Lori’s Original Lemonade began when Lori lost her job due to budget cuts at the local School District in 2012. Her kids were in college, and bills were coming in. She remembered back to the days of her children’s lemonade stand and her popular lavender lemonade recipe. Lori’s Original Lemonade was created.
Lori’s Original Lemonade has three unique flavors: organic Lavender Lemonade, organic Ginger Lemonade and organic Lite Lemongrass Lemonade. LOL can be found in Gelsons Markets, Whole Foods, select Vons/Pavilions, Albertsons, Lassens, Lazy Acres, Bristol Farms, and restaurants and cafes in hundreds of locations across California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.
To balance the stress of a start-up company, Lori completed an Ironman–a 2.4 mi swim, 112 mi bike and 26.2 mi run within a 17-hour time limit. Lori was not only able to complete the race, but found that the skills learned from the training gave her focus needed to launch the business.
