Our Story

Learn the Grandad's Sweet Tea Story - Detroit, MI - kids-happy3Grandad’s Sweet Tea is a Michigan based, minority owned company which officially incorporated in January 2008, but which actually began long before that. 

Founder and President, Rick McQueen, always had an entrepreneurial spirit and prayed long and hard for a vision for his own business. Ironically, much of that prayer time was spent while making his famous sweet tea for friends and family members. When prayers were answered he discovered that his longed for business was right in his kitchen. He got to work, and with the help of his wife and three principles, Grandad’s Sweet Tea, LLC was born.

Removed from the McQueen’s kitchen and flowing from a Southeast Michigan brewery, Grandad’s is now selling in multiple locations throughout the Midwest and with growing interest from regions in the Northeast, Southeast and California. It can honestly be said that the taste of Grandad’s is sweeping the nation!

Grandad’s success comes from their faith in God, their unwavering commitment to excellence and their confidence in their product. 

The Difference…It’s in the Taste!
