Help Preston-based TalkingRain mark 25 years
July 3, 2012
Preston-based beverage company TalkingRain is celebrating 25 years in business by sending raindrop mascots to destinations and posting online videos to chronicle the adventures.
The company is marking other milestones alongside the anniversary. Sales recently jumped 300 percent. The brand Sparkling ICE earned the title of 2011 Food and Beverage Rising Star by SymphonyIRI, a market research company. TalkingRain products also scored successes in Canada, Japan, Korea and Mexico.
The celebration includes the mascots, Drip and Drop. The costumed characters pop up across the region and document the experiences in videos later posted online. TalkingRain is seeking ideas about where Drip and Drop should go to capture the character of Seattle and the Northwest.
Submit ideas for where Drip should go next on Facebook, www.facebook.com/talkingrain, and Twitter, @driptalkingrain. For the person submitting a winning idea later made into a Drip video, a case of TalkingRain is the prize. The winner is also entered to win a Seattle barbecue set complete with umbrella.
TalkingRain employs about 150 people at offices six miles east of downtown Issaquah.
