First of all, I want to congratulate Seth Goldman – the founder of Honest Tea in Bethesda. Seth has done a superb job of growing his company over the past ten years and now, hopefully, is reaping the rewards after selling a minority interest in his company to Coke (announced yesterday).
I met Seth probably 8 years ago down at his old office and we talked about how DrinkMore Water might be able to help distribute his product to our water customers. I think we concluded that it was going to be a tough thing to do using our trucks (that are specially designed for delivering 5-gallon bottles). Anyway, he obviously figured the whole distribution thing out pretty well and I truly hope that the Coke investment doesn’t squash the entrepreneurial verve that got Seth to where he is right now – because that’s what it’s all about!
Seth has always been a leader in our community when it comes to the socially responsible form of entrepreneurship and business building and it just goes to show that you can do well by doing good. Congratulations Seth!!
