No Hook Up Required…The Lemonade and Sweet Tea taste amazing without adding anything extra…Everyone will be asking…”Who made this lemonade?”

Delicious Beverage is a family-owned business that sells tea and lemonade instant mix, as well as a line of all-natural, fruit-flavored syrups — and they promise you don’t need to add anything to make these drinks the best you’ve ever had.

The brand’s primary beverage offerings are it’s Instant Sweet Tea and Instant Lemonade. For those who want a little extra flavor, Delicious Beverage offers a suite of flavored syrups that blend well with their tea and lemonade, and contain all-natural ingredients. Unlike many other brands of flavored syrup, Delicious Beverage’s syrups are made with real fruit and are vegan friendly and gluten-free, with no high fructose corn syrup.
Based in Long Beach, California, Delicious Beverage is the passion project of entrepreneur Al Rem and his family. Together with his wife Fannie and their five children, Jerica, Aja, Rohm, Tigris, and Londun, Delicious Beverage is building an entrepreneurial legacy of family and community.

“The entrepreneurial seed was planted in me by my dad. He always told me stories about growing up in the South and how they weren’t allowed to go to white stores, so Black people had to do their own thing,” he said. “ From that moment…I was on a mission.”

Delicious Beverage started out as a concessions company and the family logged thousands of hours selling their Sweet Tea and Lemonade around the country at many major events.

“We challenged ourselves to attend the biggest events in the tri-state CA, AZ, NV as well as local farmers markets and street fairs before pivoting toward retail.” Mr. Rem said.

Mr. Rem gained his product development bonafides from corporate, working with two of the largest food companies in the world Kraft and Pepsi. With those valuable lessons learned he set out to develop what they like to call “the most refreshing drinks on Earth. COVID-19 was a blessing and a curse. It completely wiped out our income from events, but blessed us with the time and opportunity to take the leap toward launching our retail products.” Say Rem

Since making the move to retail, Al and Fannie are handling sales, marketing and the administrative tasks connected to running the business, while the kids are working on fulfillment and social media.

From the beginning, Rem says he and his family were on a mission to create a successful and profitable retail brand while at the sale time developing a concessions business that would one day become franchise restaurants.

“We felt like, if we can get our kids making money, then anyone should be able to do it,”

Not only is Delicious Beverage Black-owned and family-run, the products are manufactured by another one of Mr Rem’s companies, Black Manufacturing, LLC. After over ten years of entrepreneurship and many failures under his belt, for Mr. Rem, these businesses are a dream come true.“With every failure I learned something new, Al Rem said. “I have had billion dollar ideas that I could not bring to fruition because I lacked the resources to get them off the ground. Today I stand poised to make it happen.”
