Spunky lady has an idea, develops and tests prototypes, finds volume producer then takes on Coffee sweetener industry!
Wow guys, if you sell coffee and tea, even if you just love to drink coffee or tea, you have to listen to this episode of the Restaurant RockStars Podcast. I’m speaking with Carolyn Barbarite, a very smart and savvy lady flying under the radar of the big corporations with her disrupting invention.
Its called “JavaMelts” and Carolyn calls it “Candy for your Coffee”.
Its a dairy-free, non-GMO, vegan coffee and tea sweetener designed to slowly melt and enhance the flavor of the drink. Best of all, “JavaMelts” enhances the cup but doesn’t take away the nuance or flavor of the drink.
We’ll be diving deep into all the obstacles Carolyn’s overcome and keeps hurdling with her eye on the prize.
Finding the product developer and testing endless samples, finding the right manufacturer, figuring out distribution, going on QVC and fielding all the amazing press following her company. This is a certified “Women Owned Company” and when you listen, you’ll be caught up in the excitement of chasing the American dream. The end lesson is persistence and tenacity which Carolyn has in spades.
I just purchased some “JavaMelts” for my new restaurant and I’m excited to introduce it to my customers. We sell lots of coffee, so Its potentially a brand-new profit center.
