It begins with a dream.
Porchies Grilled Lemonade was founded in 2020 by two college students (Ben & Gavin) who saw an opportunity to create unique beverages from grilled lemons. Their creation, Porchies, is an evolution on classic homemade lemonade that features a more rounded flavor while using 27% less sugar than leading brands. Since then they’ve sold thousands of bottles of their signature product and have attracted the attention of media companies and investors.
The products name comes from the place they imagined their product to be enjoyed the most – the front porch. The porch isn’t just a place we gather, it’s a place we grow. This ideology has guided every decision the company has made. Their mission remains the same today: create unique drinks without cutting corners. That’s what we call “drinks made different”
Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Gavin has always had a passion for the natural beauty surrounding him everyday. Spending summers in Palm Desert harvesting fresh lemons behind his grandmothers back porch, he never imagined those fond memories influencing his future small business.
A native of Cleveland OH, Ben grew up surrounded by a deep appreciation for seasonality and living in the moment. On a hot summer day, you could find Ben relaxing in the yard drinking a cold glass of homemade lemonade.
