AN AWKWARD STORY

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Awkward Cup owner, Jerrick Daniels, never envisioned owning a smoothie shop. In 2016 while living in Michigan, Jerrick encountered a problem. The night before a game party was scheduled to take place at his Inkster home, thieves disconnected the central air condenser and made off with it. It wasn't until one hour before guests were to arrive that Jerrick noticed his house wasn't cooling down on a 94 degree day. But he came up with a plan!
