Moments after birth, Randy was handed a bottle of soda and spoke his first words: “as a people; we can do better than this.” Although it would be years before he could walk well enough to fulfill his declaration, he never lost sight of this goal.
Naturally, an Art Degree was necessary to the process so Randy made quick work of that step. Six years later he was an artist. Probably the best. However, despite the new success he wasn’t content. In the back of his mind he knew he had a larger calling.
So after several years working for the University of Rhode Island's marketing department, Randy and his wife left the smallest state because (LAWYER REDACTED) and set up camp in Maine.
Randy’s unique eye for detail, tinkering, and equipment layout made him indisputably the coolest person Chris had ever met as well as a valuable addition to the Hive. He now uses his skills at Green Bee to ensure his legacy of making soda better.

A genuine born and raised Mainer!
Four years of military training almost prepared Chris for the rigors of the bottling line. The rest he picked up quickly with experience. When he's not hauling around bottles he can be found thru hiking a freaking mountain range. He may be our most bad-ass employee.
In a previous life, Shannon was a wizard, churning small batch ice cream in a frozen-over Hell. Many suffered under her magical, sugary reign. But the weight of her calorie-dense atrocities began to degrade her very soul, so she abandoned her mantle and began a quest for redemption.
Having renounced the dark arts of frozen confection, she prostrated herself before the altar of craft beverage and asked for a second chance. In a flash of light she was reincarnated as a humble worker bee and now presides over the creation of healthful, flavorful sodas. She hopes one day to be fed the royal jelly and become your queen.
