Two Teenage Sisters from Edina are Basking in the Success of Their Bath Bombs
According to the Star Tribune four years ago pre-teens Isabel and Caroline Bercaw were looking for something to do over the summer. With neither of them liking any bath bomb products they had found, they decided to make some themselves, which has now blossomed into a major business venture.
They initially sold the first batch at a local fair and sold out all 150 bath bombs right away, they went home and made more and again all sold out the next day. The girls were only 11 and 12 at the time. The next year they were approached by a salon who wanted to sell them which then lead to a website and the business slowly started to get bigger and bigger.
In January of 2016 Target had approached the girls about carrying their product which is called "Da Bomb Bath Fizzers" and the whole family jumped on board to make this a full time business. The girls were able to attend classes at their school in Edina and work on the business end of things at the same time.
The family now has a 45,000 square feet of manufacturing space and employs 150 people.Their products are now sold in 7,000 stores across the U.S. and Bermuda. Even with all the success they have had so quickly and still at such a young age the girls have said that they never stop thinking of new types of bath bombs. The family now has sights set on even more international stores to carry the bath bombs. Need some great stocking stuffers? Check out the website and Facebook Page
