Started in July 2017. Vanlice Washington our founder and CEO ventured to learn and develop a new skill for the next 30 days of his life. With his ambitious efforts, he stumbled upon a video online that shows one how to make fresh lemonade. After a few successful runs he decided to see if he could design and formulate the perfect lemonade blend. The goal was to design a full all natural juice that could truly send you to paradise with in every sip. Then was born Vanlice Lemonade.
Learning that I was soon to be a father of a beautiful little girl named Hayzel. I wanted to create a fun business that would allow us to spend more time together as a family and provide endless memories. During my wife’s pregnancy, Hayzel’s mother expressed her love for fresh-squeezed lemonade at the local Carver County Fair. I found himself highly fascinated by how satisfied she was with every sip. Being so intrigued I began to study the art of lemonade. For many days and long nights, I studied how different cultures made pure all-natural lemonade. I watched as Asians, Indians, Hispanics, Native Americans, Americans, West Africans, and more made the best lemonade. I had an epiphany, what if I could make the best lemonade on earth? A lemonade that is so pure that it sends you to paradise in every sip. Yet after many failed attempts, I decided that keeping it simple was the answer, and with that… Vanlice Lemonade was born. I designed a recipe that my wife absolutely loved. With Hayzels mother happy, I decided to share it with their friends and they shared it with theirs…the rest, as they say, is history! Pronounced – “Van-Liss Lemonade”
