Comcast RISE Grant Helps South Florida Cidery Prepare for the Future

Right now, if you want to have a glass of the award-winning cider from Broski Ciderworks, you have to travel to the company’s only taproom in Pompano Beach. But its founders, brothers Daniel and David Verdugo, are hoping they’ll soon be able to change that and distribute their cider across the country for more people to enjoy.

Receiving a Comcast RISE Investment Fund grant for $10,000 is allowing these entrepreneurs to think bigger, even in spite of challenges and set-backs brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company was one of 100 small businesses in South Florida owned by people of color, including Black, Hispanic, Asian American and Indigenous owners, among others, that was selected to receive a Comcast RISE grant in late 2021.
