Having grown up in a family of entrepreneurs and learning a positive example from her parents, Angela wanted to be her own boss. So in the autumn of 2004, she bought Crystal Clear Water.
The water they sell is sourced from the Village of Nakusp and is put through a reverse osmosis with ozone process. Then each bottle is cleaned, sanitized, labelled, filled and capped. They offer scheduled deliveries of their 5 gallon bottles to approximately 200 homes and businesses from Nakusp to Fauquier and Galena Bay, and south to New Denver. They also sell 500 ml and one litre bottles locally.
Angela proudly states that they have “great tasting pure water with no chlorine or other additives.”
Her advice to new entrepreneurs is to be sure to do solid market research to ensure you have enough profit to sustain you during your slow season.
