Brian Mitchell, Founder and CEO of Bright Greens, worked in the natural food industry for almost a decade. Knowing first hand how great nutrition can lead to a longer and better life, he and his wife drank green smoothies every day, feeling great and living an active lifestyle. However, after the birth of their first child, the smoothies fell by the wayside — who had time for the shopping, cleaning, chopping, blending, and washing up that you have to do for a green smoothie? Brian saw a problem; so after much research and time, he came up with the idea of freezing pre-blended smoothies into small cubes that could be reconstituted with just some water and a shake, bypassing the blender completely. On-demand, great nutrition had finally become a reality.
When Sean Wainwright was introduced to Brian and his product by a mutual friend, he thought it was an awesome idea. So awesome, in fact, that he offered to quit his job and work with him for a few months for free to see if they could get it off the ground. That was 3 years ago and he hasn’t looked back since.
