UpDog Kombucha is an handcrafted, small batch kombucha company based in Winston-Salem, NC. UpDog was started by two Wake Forest students with a passion for healthy living and natural products. Both kombucha and yoga enthusiasts, Olivia Wolff (’16) and Lauren Miller (’17) have worked tirelessly to perfect their brewing techniques to make UpDog Kombucha in an authentic and sustainable manner. Olivia’s specialization in nutrition and health sciences and Lauren’s knowledge of economics and business practices make the two a tenacious duo. UpDog strives to make high quality, local and natural kombucha that is full of healthy enzymes, probiotics and antioxidants that support strong digestive and immune health. Our mission is to spread the love and knowledge of the ancient super tea through our handcrafted and organic brews.
Olivia is a recent Wake Forest graduate, where she studied Health and Exercise Science and French. From a young age, she loved trying all of the different types of tea drinks at the grocery store, and dreamed that one day she would have a product of her own on the shelves. Her passions include yoga, dogs, traveling, and food.
Lauren is a current senior at Wake Forest University studying Economics. She leads outdoor trips for other students on the weekends and spends her free time hiking, mountain biking and running. She is always excited to take on a challenge, especially when it involves improving the health of other people. Lauren is a kombucha connoisseur and could not have paired a better interest with starting a business.
