Good Company: Blue Sun Soda Shop

The Soda Jerk was a popular job, peaking back in the 1940s. But one still exists here in Minnesota. Twin Cities Live found him in Spring Lake Park. He goes by the name of Billy and he works inside Blue Sun Soda Shop. A company that’s only been around for 3 ½ years, but feels like you’re stepping back in time as soon as you walk in. It opened on Small Business Saturday with just one employee and the goal was to just sell bottled soda. Now there’s a soda fountain, complete with Billy the Soda Jerk. There’s also an arcade and a candy shop. It’s an experience that Kelli takes us to in this Good Company.
