Meet our extraordinary staff members at Point 5! From customer interactions to behind-the-scenes details to stellar beverage crafting, our staff put in the time and compassion to make our small local business incredible.


Jody Sidle
Store Owner & Point 5 Founder

“Amazing” would be an understatement to summarize our founder Jody Sidle! Jody has always had a passion for the growing small-business scene in downtown Richmond and a love for the unique atmosphere of Carytown. Point 5 is more than just a contribution to the sober-curious movement for Jody–it’s a passion project integrated into Jody’s newfound alcohol-free lifestyle. Full of enthusiasm and superb drink advice, Jody will always bring a smile to your face in the shop!

Store Manager

Building on the family core of Point 5, Lewis began working as Store Manager in 2023. Since then, Lewis has been bringing fresh ideas to the Point 5 movement and supporting the shop’s growth in all capacities. Questions about the shop? Chat with Lewis! He is always happy to engage with our active customer base. Even prior to “officially” joining the Point 5 team, Lewis contributed wonderful support to the family venture as the loving son of Point 5 founder Jody!

Doug & Maggie
Point 5 Volunteers & Supporters

From moral support to in-store assistance, Doug & Maggie have been the loving supporters of Point 5 from the beginning as the caring parents of founder Jody! When they are not serving customers with a smile and providing stellar drink recommendations, Doug & Maggie can be found dog sitting, crafting, or traveling the world in their adventurous style.
