The Waterplant is a one stop shop, water source store located in Studio City. The store offers five different types of premium filtered water including Alkaline water, Structured Spring Mineral water, Oxygenated water and KANGEN Ionized Waters. Leslie Pereira, owner of The Waterplant, first came to VEDC’s Women’s Business Center in September of 2014. She took several training classes including the highly recognized Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP) workshop series.
From that point forward, she received one-on-one business consulting as well as business plan assistance. Inspired by the workshops and encouraged by Marsel Watts, who is currently the program Director of the Women’s Business Center, Pereira decided to open her own business. She expressed to Watts, who guided Pereira through the company’s launch “Thank you for all your help and guidance. It meant everything to me.”
One of Pereira’s secrets of success is her constant effort and passion to serve the community. Pereira’s goal is to educate and bring awareness to everyone on how important and essential these extremely hydrating waters are for good health. She is committed to providing the community with better drinking water for their family, businesses and even their pets. She states that drinking better water enhances people’s lives by helping them to maintain optimal health while living longer, fuller, more productive lives. By selling a product that is extremely beneficial to its buyers, Pereira has successfully built a loyal relationship with her customers who can’t help but keep coming back for these tasteful and hydrating waters offered at The Waterplant.
