Missoula, Montana-based Tipu's Chai sales heat up

November 19, 2010View for printing

Tipu's Chai got a significant boost last year when the Frontier Angel Fund , comprised of a group of investors based out of Polson, backed expansion of Patel's fledgling operation with cash and marketing expertise.

Between the second and third quarter of this year, Tipu's Chai sales doubled and Patel's product recently caught the eye of New York City-based gourmet food purveyor Dean & DeLuca, which is now selling Tipu's Chai at six of its 14 retail stores.

Angel Fund coordinator Elizabeth Marchi says fund investors simply love Tipu's Chai and remain committed to growing Patel's business.
