While Stephanie Johnson has only been in San Angelo for a year, she is excited to bring Bottled Up, 3304 Knickerbocker Road, to the area. Her drinks are inspired by her daughter’s business, The Cappuccino Coffee House in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Highlights

  • When Johnson moved to San Angelo, she initially planned to open a food truck. Instead, her daughter recommended selling the popular drinks. 

  • “My daughter started a coffeehouse about 12 years ago, and 3 years ago she started making drinks – Red Bull, lemonades, fruits, teas — made to order in glass bottles,” Johnson said. “Her business tripled, and people from Brownwood and Big Springs make the drive there.”

Johnson said her favorite drinks are the spicy sweet and sour Pop and Pickle Lemonade and the Cucumber Coconut Mint Water. She is also excited to use Henry’s Ice Cream, which is based in Plano, Texas.

“It’s mainly bottled drinks with healthy and not-so-healthy options,” Johnson said. “We’ll also have old-fashioned milkshakes using Henry’s Ice Cream, old-fashioned floats, some smoothies, fraps and yogurt parfaits.”

“We’re going to be huge on customer service and people getting their money’s worth,” Johnson said. “I hope they like us.”

The store will be open Tuesday-Sunday for drive-thru and pickup orders, with occasional specials. People can follow Bottled Up on Facebook, Instagram and bottledupsanangelo.com to see specials and updates. Johnson is also looking to hire part-time employees. For applications, contact Bottled Up through social media.
