Who We Are
Founded in 1984, HOTLIPS is a family-owned business with five pizzerias in Portland and in the business of bottling real fruit soda since 2005.
We are passionate about great food, the good of community, and the bounty of our region’s harvest. We truly are some of the luckiest people on earth to live here in the Pacific Northwest.
We currently have 135 awesome and energetic people helping us run the five restaurants, a commissary kitchen, the soda brewing operation, traveling to a bunch of farmers markets and festivals, plus all the business it takes to keep it afloat.
To make the best soda ever from real fruit grown on family farms in the Pacific Northwest.
To preserve culture and celebrate humanity through rich culinary traditions and by joining with others in finding new, sustainable ways of doing business.
We also study constantly and preach about sustainability, sharing our knowledge, our sucesses and failures; we see that as our duty. We love what we do. We aim to make each day better and more delicious.
Fresh fruit—and all its pulpy goodness
HOTLIPS sodas are unlike any other. They’re lightly carbonated and contain pulp, and vary slightly from batch to batch. The fresh-fruit base is naturally sweet, and we add just enough sugar to balance the fruit’s acidity. Cranberry + Pear are all fruit; they have zero added sugar.
Your HOTLIPS Soda experience should be undeniably FRESH + FRUITY — a delicious, all natural, sweet treat. If you’re ever unsure or curious about our soda, give us a holler. We love to answer your questions + we value your feedback very much.
