Stephanie’s Chu Lo Drinks rise to success is a refreshing example of entrepreneurial innovation, earning her a finalist spot in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023.

Stephanie, founder of Chu Lo Drinks, is shaking up the soft drink scene with her innovative range of Japanese-inspired beverages. During a trip to Japan in 2019, Stephanie fell in love with a sour cocktail called Chu-hai. Upon returning home, she found herself craving that distinctive flavour and decided to create her own non-alcoholic version, Chu Lo.

Within a year of launching, Chu Lo Drinks achieved the remarkable feat of listing with Yo Sushi. This milestone attracted major customers like Sushi Gourmet in Sainsbury’s and Mai Sushi in Marks & Spencer, helping the company achieve 300% year-over-year growth. However, Stephanie is building the business sustainably to establish Chu Lo as the go-to drink for Asian cuisine and gaming.

Chu Lo’s rapid success is a testament to Stephanie’s entrepreneurial spirit and vision. Spotting a gap in the market, she created an innovative product that combines exciting new flavours with stylish designs. Her hard work and perseverance in building the business from scratch have paid off, earning Chu Lo a place as a finalist in the 2023 Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Dubbed “The Grammys of Entrepreneurship,” the awards ceremony will be held at London’s Grosvenor House on November 20th.
