In 2012, the Rayne family- Rolin, his wife Shannon, daughter Jazmyn, and son Zi – made the decision to buy a Wild Bill’s Olde Fashioned Soda Pop Company franchise. After seeing another Wild Bill’s franchisee in action, Rolin, a Dell employee, decided he didn’t want to work for Corporate America forever and wanted to make a change and create an opportunity for his family:
I’ve always owned my own business since I was 14 years old when I started a landscaping business. I was looking for something different and unique and Wild Bill’s Soda was the answer.
This summer Rolin is already adding his second stand and has no plans of slowing down. With plans for adding even more stands, more full-time event staff, and of course more events in the future, the Rayne family are perfect examples of what a Wild Bill’s Olde Fashioned Soda Pop Company franchise can do. All of Rolin’s decisions come from adhering to one of his favorite quotes: “In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.” With his Wild Bill’s franchise, he is able to both keep his family close and make every day an experience. When all is said and done Rolin hopes to one day hand over the reins (no pun intended) to his son Zi to keep the Wild Bill’s experiences flowing.
When asked about how they like traveling and spending weekends at fairs and festivals, the Rayne family all replied that they absolutely love it. They love being able to hop in the car while spending quality time together and visiting both new and old places all around their territory. So what’s their favorite part of working at events?
Zi – “I like to meet everyone!”
Jazmyn- “I like all of the rides, and that I get paid.”
Shannon- “I like traveling and getting to know all of our fan.”
Rolin- “I like selling the most unique and fun product wherever I am.”
