Right Bee Cider

Right Bee Cider is an urban cidery, which produces ciders- dry, semi-dry, and flavored hard apple ciders using the freshest Midwest apples.

“Boy meets girl. Boy makes cider to woo girl. Now he’s right beside her. Right Bee Cider.” The husband and wife founders, Charlie Davis and Katie Morgan founded Right Bee Cider in 2014, turning a romantic story into a business, and now being part of the growing cider market in Japan.

Katie Morgan, the Queen Bee/ Founder, was referred to the College of DuPage to seek assistance with their exports to Japan. A research project focusing on the alcoholic drink sector in Japan was conducted to help gain a better understanding of the market.

Katie was then introduced to Food Export Midwest to seek financial support for their upcoming marketing efforts, including localized product labels and customized cider containers for the Japanese market.

"We were so lucky to meet the ITC! They were responsive and incredibly helpful. They shared details about the branded program and connected us with the right people. They even did special research specific to the Japanese market and shared it with us. We are so excited to help our cider company, Right Bee Cider, expand globally!"

Right Bee Cider’s application to the Branded Program was approved in full in late 2022. We are very excited for them and can’t wait to see their ciders on more shelves in Japan and beyond.
