Brew Dr. Kombucha gets bigger, but stays small



Matt Thomas, 37, founded Townshend’s Tea Company in 2006, which now has eight retail outlets, four on Portland’s east side. The company’s Brew Dr. Kombucha — a raw, fermented product that is flavored with teas and herbs rather than juices — has proven to be a hit and stands as a brand on its own.

The company’s path to funding and growth are as interesting as Thomas’s personal path to becoming an entrepreneur. Read the full story of Brew Dr. Kombucha here.
