Poppi, a Dallas TX-based prebiotic soda brand, raised $13.5M in funding.
The round was led by Cavu Ventures with participation from Russell Westbrook, the Chainsmokers, 24kGoldn, Kygo, Halsey, Kevin Love, Ellie Goulding, Olivia Munn, Nicole Scherzinger, Chantel Jeffries, Bryce Hall, Noah Beck, Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson and Blake Gray.
The company intends to use the funds to expand distribution, scale our internal team and continue to invest in major marketing opportunities.
Founded by husband-and-wife duo Stephen (CEO) and Allison Ellsworth, Poppi provides prebiotic soda cans that combine real fruit juice with apple cider vinegar to offer real health benefits. Each can delivers approximately a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) alongside sparkling water, real fruit and plant-based sweeteners – the balance of gut-friendly prebiotics that aid in digestion, immunity and glowing skin. Poppi is available in nine flavors – Watermelon, Strawberry Lemon, Raspberry Rose, Orange, Ginger Lime, Grapefruit, Cola, Root Beer, and DocPop – and is available for $2.49 per 12oz can.
