Not Your Average Cotton
Co-Founder, June 2016 - Present
Not Your Average Cotton is a cotton candy pop-up business, specializing in live production for events as well as packaged orders. We have developed four unique flavors using simple, wholesome ingredients: lavender, mint, citrus, and rose.
My co-founder, Alisha Vimawla, and I started eperimenting with non-traditional flavor experiences in the Spring of 2016, and decided to expand into a fully-fledged pop-up business that June after coming across an opportunity to participate as a vendor at the Juilliard Alumni Event that June. Since our debut at The Juilliard School back in May, we've been twirling up quite the sugary storm. We spun for hundreds of guests at the first-ever NYC Dessert Goals festival in Brooklyn, got invited to pitch our business at Seattle Startup Week, and collaborated with Cosabella on a special SoHo pop-up. We are currently perfecting our packaging techniques and hope to open an online shop by the end of 2017.
