This Entrepreneur Grew Her Business from a Small Bedroom to a 13,000 ft. Facility and INC 5000 in 5 Years
At just 23, Adi Arezzini created Teami Blends in her bedroom.
She saw Teami as a way to help people become healthier and happier, with teas to solve everyday issues.
Today, Adi has since grown the lifestyle tea brand to include tea-infused beauty oils and green tea mask + scrub.
The company saw its’ number of product lines grow substantially in 2018, crediting the additional products to a higher growth curve.
Teami is quickly outgrowing their 13,000 square foot office-warehouse hybrid located in Seminole, Florida. The brand also is credited with making the INC 5000 list at number 222, the annual list compiled of the top 5,000 brands in the US.
“I think that my biggest skill is the ability to learn things quickly and to put them into motion.”
The brand is now is sold nationally at Ulta Beauty, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Riley Rose, Revolve Beauty, Francesca’s, Vitamin World, Lucky Vitamin and other large retailers.
Arezzini credits working with social media influencers, including Kylie Jenner and Demi Lovoto, as one of the main strategies that has helped the brand grow.
She has learned what influencers best fit the brand’s core values as well as those that will cause potential customers to take action.
