Holmer Rocket Fizz Stores

Rocket Fizz is Kalamazoo, Traverse City and now Ann Arbor's wacky, sugary, soda-y, dad joke loaded emporium of all things sweet & weird.


Our Story

In March of 2018, we, Tom & Heather Holmer, opened Rocket Fizz Kalamazoo to the delight of our many sugar and silliness loving Kalamazooians. We quickly realized that we brought joy and fun to locals and visitors. Spreading joy - what a great thing!! Could we do more? Yes!
In June of 2019, Rocket Fizz Traverse City became a reality. Locals have learned to love us and tourists never seem to stop exclaiming, "Mustard Soda!?!?" as they find that tons of other fun silliness on our shelves.
In 2020... well, you all know 2020 was unique! But it didn't kill our love of fun and spreading joy.
On we go to Ann Arbor. Despite, Heather being a Spartan by diploma, we knew Ann Arbor was ready for our kind of wackiness. Rocket Fizz Ann Arbor opened in early August 2021.


This website is just a sneak peek into our stores. For optimal experience, get in to see us ASAP!
