What a whirlwind year! It almost feels like we’ve been in an entrepreneurial dream for the past year. Prior to Shark Tank, we wondered if we were about to set ourselves up for public humiliation. After all, some really good businesses get hammered on Shark Tank and some really silly ideas get funded. After making our mother’s proud of our Shark Tank performance, we were off to acquisition.
Selling a business to a publicly traded company is a huge milestone. Besides making our dads very proud, we now have the amazing ability to build Talbott Teas through a larger company that is amazing. Jamba Juice is committed to growing Talbott Teas, thereby making our dream of reinventing the tea experience a reality.
We are so appreciative of all of the people who have supported us along our journey and we are excited for what is about to come.
We also are excited to watch the progress of the many innovative companies and fellow entrepreneurs we had the pleasure to meet this year. We know each of them will find their own path to success . As 2013 begins we will continue to draw inspiration from all of our friends, family and customers.
We wish you all a very happy 2013.
