In her second appearance on the show, Hydrate IV Bar founder and CEO Katie Wafer shares all the stories about the pandemic and pivoting the business.  Stores were closed.  Nurses were inundated at their hospital jobs.  Zero activity or ability to serve the community with Hydrate services… In the early days, Katie did her best to keep a cool head and assess the situation.  Hydrate donated all of its stores of gloves, masks, and sanitation equipment.  Then the team put their heads down and got to work!

A franchise program went from a one year goal to a six month reality.  The new franchise partners that were hired to help steer the program surprised the team with an offer to open the first franchise location in Fort Collins, CO, becoming Hydrates sixth location in Colorado.  In a time where the only certainty was uncertainty, Katie led her team through the turmoil without having to reduce staff or cut any corners.  The company has grown and fostered an even deeper relationship with the community!  Tune in for the whole story!
