Parkside Beverage is Different

At Parkside Beverage, you will not be handed off to an inexperienced formulator, but you will work directly with me the owner, Cydney Whitmoyer.

How have I gotten to this point? Since leaving my beloved Penn State University with a Bachelors Degree in Food Science, I have spent the last 30 years formulating nearly every kind of beverage, liquid, or drink that is non-alcoholic. To date, at least 325 individual products have been commercially produced.

Having worked at a large beverage company and a flavor company prior to starting this business, I understand how to source the proper ingredients, test them thoroughly, and then guide clients to the proper packaging options, co-packing locations and services, and all the steps between.

Since 1997, I’ve helped startup businesses realize their dream of starting a new beverage company or simply to know, finally, that their idea is possible. Existing brands have received service to improve, reduce costs, or fix problems – all from my personal laboratory.

This extensive work means I have a thorough knowledge of solubility, ingredient interactions, flavoring and masking, storage changes, formula and label preparation, as well as commercial production.

Previous clients will tell you to expect blatant direct honesty, commitment to what I promise, and the opportunity for the client to also be themselves in our working arrangements.

When I am not in the lab, you may find me drinking Diet Mountain Dew, singing in a worship band, shoe shopping, baking, or perhaps watching TV with my husband, Jeff, in our Pennsylvania home.

What others say about Cydney

The Granny Squibb Company would not exist today had I not teamed up Cydney from Parkside Beverage. When I founded the company ten years ago, I assumed it would be easy for a food chemist to come up with a commercial formula derived from my grandmother’s homemade iced tea recipe. Three food chemists later, I was ready to give up before I’d even started. Then I found Cydney. She was willing to work WITH me, and soon we came up with an exact match to the homebrew (maybe an even better tasting one). She has helped us ever since to expand and grow the company in many new directions. I could not recommend her more highly. Her knowledge is extraordinary on all fronts: formulations, bottles, cans, sourcing of ingredients, safety, production facilities, etc. But best of all, she is honest and straight forward. She works efficiently and meets her deadlines. Believe me, you get your money’s worth. And finally, she is an absolute pleasure to be around.

Cydney is a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the beverage industry, supplier base, and formulation experience is a great asset to our business at Sunshine Beverages. Cydney has helped Sunshine Beverage develop great tasting products that our customers love and to this point has been an integral part of the success of our business. I could not think of a better partner for our business.
