Tiesta Tea is a company that used SCORE Chicago to get started in 2010. The founders Dan Klein and Patrick Tannous started with an idea to sell tea, and fast forward 10 years, they have currently sold over $54MM of their product. They sell their products in thousands of retail stores, including Walmart, Jewel, Mariano’s, Amazon, Costco and many more.

Tiesta Tea operates a 23,000 Square Foot Distribution Center in Elk Grove, and the founders would like to invite aspiring entrepreneurs, established business owners, and SCORE mentors for a lunch and learn there. This experience can give entrepreneurs an opportunity to see first-hand how a distribution center works and apply these insights to grow their businesses.

Dan and Patrick know firsthand how important mentorship is for aspiring entrepreneurs and established businesses seeking mentoring from SCORE to grow and scale their businesses.
They will also share their story and lessons learned with the attendees.
