Brewing Success at Arbor Teas
Ask Ann Arbor native Jeremy Lopatin the story of how he came to be in business and he’s likely to say, “Well, you start with a wife who dropped out of her master’s program.”
He’s talking, of course, about Aubrey Lopatin, his wife and business partner who, as a student of architecture at the University of Michigan, secretly nurtured the dream of opening a small cafe. “One day, I realized that I don’t have to wait until I’m old to follow my dream” says Aubrey.
And, after steeping that dream in a fortuitous brew of gumption and opportunity, the couple founded Arbor Teas. The Ann Arbor-based online tea seller has been in business since 2003 and has grown steadily each year.
