sip sip hooray! how the nashville small business recovery fund helped perfectly cordial scale

After owning a Nashville bartending service for several years, Rhonda Cammon found a recurring theme in her customer base: customers wanted the experience of drinking exciting craft beverages without the alcohol.

Leaning into her past work in hospitality, Rhonda brought to the table exactly what her customers needed, and in 2019 Perfectly Cordial was born.

After finding success in the first few years of business, Rhonda knew it was time for her business to take the next step. After connecting with Pathway Lending, Rhonda secured additional funding through a loan from the Nashville Small Business Recovery Fund (NSBRF) program to purchase more inventory and hire a merchandiser for the Nashville, Knoxville, and Tri-City markets.

“This is how a lot of businesses get to the next level,” says Rhonda. 

Now, Rhonda continues on her journey to bring the perfect drink mixers for every occasion by offering her products in stores in Tennessee, Florida, California, Minnesota, and North Carolina. Customers can even order her mixers online!
