Roxane Mollicchi, the winner of Accompany Capital’s 2020 Immigrant Heritage Week Awards’ “Made in New York Award” is the creator of The Wandering Barman, a Brooklyn startup that produces handcrafted bottled cocktails. Born in Colorado to French parents in the restaurant business, she was raised in France where she learned about the Restaurant and Bar service first hand. While studying fashion at the Mod’Art International in Paris, she discovered a passion for product development and decided to follow in her family’s footsteps.
The Wandering Barman cocktails use liquor sourced from high-quality brewers, fruits and vegetables that are local and organic whenever available, and handmade infusions and bitters. Roxane founded the company with two partners that have experience bartending and their company values include smarter, more sustainable practices, with quality ingredients and less waste.
Roxane received her first loan from Accompany Capital to help her increase production and meet a growing demand for her delicious products. Roxane continued to work with Accompany Capital’s loan officers, going on to receive an SBA guaranteed Community Advantage Loan in May of 2021 which helped her complete the construction of their production facility and on-site tasting room. Wandering Barman has utilized their social media presence and sales force to expand nationally and plan to use their new tasting room to host events as they continue to grow.
