Conducting Market Research

Your kombucha brewery should conduct market research, to better understand the demand, competition, and opportunities in the kombucha industry.  You should gather and analyze data such as consumer demographics, market trends, and market share, to inform your business decisions and strategies.  This research can help you understand the opportunities and challenges you may face, and can help guide decisions about your recipes, branding, and target market.

  • Developing a research plan

  • Identifying your target market

  • Conducting primary research

  • Conducting secondary research

  • Gathering market data

  • Analyzing and interpreting data and findings

  • Analyzing market trends

  • Assessing market opportunities

  • Evaluating market changes

Developing a business plan

Before starting your kombucha brewery, it is important to develop a comprehensive business plan, which outlines your goals, strategies, and resources.  Your business plan should include a market analysis, a financial plan, and a marketing plan, among other things.

  • Defining the business concept

  • Conducting market research

  • Developing a business model

  • Determining and developing your brand identity

  • Developing a marketing plan

  • Creating a financial plan

  • Outlining the organizational structure

  • Evaluating your business model concept


Creating your initial recipes

Your kombucha brewery should offer a variety of flavors and styles, to appeal to different tastes and preferences. You should experiment and innovate, to create unique and delicious kombucha recipes, using different teas, herbs, spices, fruits, and other ingredients.  While this could be done earlier or later, we feel it’s important to do early in the process — especially if you want to be able to let your investors and lenders taste your products.  They could also be important to your business plan.

  • Researching and understanding the basics of commercial kombucha production

  • Researching flavor profiles and trends

  • Documenting your recipes

  • Experimenting with different ingredients and flavorings

  • Experimenting with different tea varieties

  • Testing and refining your recipes

  • Consulting and collaborating with other kombucha brewers

  • Creating unique and memorable names for your recipes

  • Seeking feedback from potential customers

  • Evaluating and adjusting your recipes

  • Developing recipes that are unique and differentiated from your competitors

  • Continuously experimenting and improving your recipes

  • Developing labels and packaging for your kombucha

Securing financing

Starting a kombucha brewery can be a costly endeavor, and you will likely need to secure financing to cover the initial costs and expenses.  This can involve researching different financing options, such as loans, grants, or investment, and presenting a strong business plan to potential lenders or investors.  Be sure to carefully evaluate the terms and conditions of any financing you secure, and to understand the potential risks and rewards of the different options.

  • Researching financing options

  • Having a strong business plan

  • Preparing financial forecasts

  • Preparing a financing or fundraising proposal

  • Applying for financing or funding

  • Negotiating the terms and conditions of financing

  • Considering seeking professional assistance

  • Using the funds wisely

  • Monitoring and managing your debt

  • Reviewing and updating your financing strategy

Finding a suitable location

This can involve evaluating different locations, considering factors such as rent, zoning, and accessibility, and negotiating leases or rental agreements.  Be sure to carefully evaluate the potential pros and cons of each location, and to choose a location that is convenient, accessible, and well-suited to your needs.  You should also consider factors such as the size, the layout, the utilities, etc. to ensure that your brewery can operate efficiently and effectively.  The last thing you want to do is sign a lease and find out later you can’t operate there (or need to make major improvements to do so).

  • Defining your location requirements and preferences

  • Searching for available locations

  • Evaluating potential locations

  • Negotiating lease or sale agreements

  • Developing a contingency plan

  • Conducting a thorough analysis of your location’s strengths and weaknesses

  • Developing a plan for optimizing your location
