A lovely video about a specialist soda store and it’s owner:

John Nese is the proprietor of Galcos Soda Pop Stop in LA. His father ran it as a grocery store, and when the time came for John to take charge, he decided to convert it into the ultimate soda-lovers destination. About 500 pops line the shelves, sourced lovingly by John from around the world. John has made it his mission to keep small soda-makers afloat and help them find their consumers. Galcos also acts as a distributor for restaurants and bars along the West Coast, spreading the gospel of soda made with cane sugar (no high-fructose corn syrup if John can avoid it).

    Really good to see a vid of a guy with such knowledge and passion for his business (and such keenness to help small businesses).

    In NZ we’d have the Greens wanting to impose a “sugar” tax on him, the Labour Party complaining about the “Rich Prick” when he fires a worker who’s been stealing, and the Mana Party demanding the business employ 15% Maori as per the Treaty.

    No…he doesn’t.
