Social Mixers co-founder Joel Eisfelder is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a degree in Advertising from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Kat Duvic, his wife and co-founder, manages Social Mixers full-time, while Joel supports the business part-time alongside his career as a marketing and advertising professional.
Joel and Kat were both working in corporate jobs when they decided they wanted to turn Kat’s passion for herbalism and fancy drinks into a business. After creating unique craft drinks with flavored simple syrups for numerous family members and friends and hearing them say, “you should sell this!”, they decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge and do just that. Starting by selling online and at local farmer’s markets in 2019, they’ve added a variety of flavors over the years that their customers love for making a variety of drinks including cocktails, mocktails, coffee and tea. Joel and Kat live in Richfield, MN with their three cats, Iggy, Callie and Deacon.
