By BizWest staff
The Tea Spot, a maker of loose tea and tea sachet products, is a new recipient of a $10,000 small business grant from UPS Ignite, a United Parcel Service Inc. accelerator program that supports women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
In addition to the grant, The Tea Spot’s leaders will participate in the UPS Ignite executive education program at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University near Chicago.
“We’re grateful to be UPS Ignite Small Business grant recipients. This recognition will help further our mission to empower healthy hydration through tea. The $10,000 grant is like icing on the cake after participating in their world-class executive education program created in partnership with Kellogg School of Management to promote businesses with diverse leadership,” The Tea Spot chief marketing officer Jessica Kochik said in a news release. “I am proud and inspired to be among this cohort of business leaders and am rooting for everyone’s success.”
The company, which moved from its former headquarters in Boulder’s Gunbarrel neighborhood to a larger facility in Louisville in 2018, “plans to continue to grow and invest in private label partnerships” with assistance from the UPS program, The Tea Spot said in the release.
