Jason Dritsan got his start in the world of self-employment like so many others before him. While working for others, he realized he could work just as well on his own, if not better.
"I saw a void in the market to have a turn-key event service," Dritsan says.
That epiphany led to the creation of Liquid Events Detroit, which provides event services for parties and festivals along the Woodward corridor from downtown Detroit to downtown Royal Oak. One of its signature events is Cocktail Culture
. Dritsan is working to create one large event per month along the Woodward corridor for the remainder of the year.
"Our motto is, 'Good drinks, good food, good time, good will,'" Dritsan says. "We try to bring that to every event we do."
Dritsan worked on events in the beverage industry for years before starting Liquid Events Detroit, which keeps Dritsan employed on a full-time basis. At any given time, Liquid Events Detroit employs between a dozen service industry professionals to as many as 150 people on a part-time basis.
