Soda Kid – Get your Soda Stream refills!

I saw on CBC news that nine-year old Atley Ma – aka the Soda Kid – has started his own business selling soda stream refills for half the price of a retail store. I decided to try his service as the pick-up location is minutes away from my house, much more convenient than asking my husband to refill the canisters by his workplace in Brentwood. Soda Kid’s two pick-up locations are Marda Loop and Royal Oak.

I looked up the Soda Kid on Kijiji To date, his ad (1325298583) has generated over 1000 views. Atley uses only beverage/food grade C02. At the time of the CBC article, he had two customers a week. He hopes to grow that number to five.

I don’t normally provide my full name and phone number via Kijiji transactions but  I wanted the Soda Kid to have enough information to screen me. A couple of emails later we arranged to transfer the money for two refills. Note – you have to bring your own canisters to exchange them for a refill.

The experience was delightful. The Soda Kid was polite and oh so adorable. He donates a dollar for every canister to The Calgary Food Bank. I told him I look forward to doing business with him again. If you want to support a good kid and save money, click here.
