Business Idea: Just Salad

This article came from: http://www.justsalad.com.hk/PR%20kit%20_NYC_.pdf
Our Story
Just Salad began with a simple question.
Why is there such a shortage of healthy fast food?
Nick Kenner and Rob Crespi were tired of the options available to them for lunch in
midtown Manhattan. So, instead of continuing to settle, they set off to develop a
restaurant concept that would serve a healthy, fast, and creative alternative. To make
sure that Just Salad would serve only the best salads in the world, Nick and Rob
sought the expertise of Chef Laura Pensiero.
Already world-renowned for her inventive and nutritious cooking, Chef Laura joined
Just Salad after founding Chef4Life, a provider of healthy and delicious solutions for
life-long improvements in diet while still stressing the importance of enjoying food.
She guaranteed Nick and Rob that Just Salad would stay true to its mission: offering
a meal that would be both healthy and delicious. (See the”Chef Laura” tab for her full
story.) Chef Laura designed the Just Salad menu from front to back, creating 27
unique dressings and 11 enticing combinations of toppings now known as Just Salad’s
Chef Designed Salads.
In May of 2005, after two years of research and preparation, Just Salad opened its
doors to the public on 51st and Park Avenue in New York City. It was an immediate
sensation. Such a sensation, in fact, that a sister store opened only eight months later
at 134 West 37th street.
Every detail of Just Salad was thought out carefully. Customers enjoy everything
from the food to the music to the environmentally friendly bowls. Shipments of fresh
ingredients are delivered every morning, so our patrons are happy knowing that they
are getting the freshest possible meal.
When you’re eating at Just Salad, you’re eating well.

Business Idea: Wateroos

Source: http://www.wateroos.com/index.htm
Many friends and parents often ask me how I came up with the idea for Wateroos. This is our story. Like many parents, my husband and I had made the decision early on not to give our toddler sugary drinks such as juices and sodas. And like most moms today, I’m busy and on the go with my family. With no other options, I found myself constantly toting around my daughter’s water-filled sippy cup. And those cups leaked inside my purse and other bags more than I care to mention. I knew there had to be a better way. We needed a beverage that our daughter would want to drink and that also offered the convenience of existing packaged juices and sodas without the sugar, sweeteners and calories. Then one day, I had a light bulb moment. If I could find a way to put water beverages in a juice-box-type container and make it really fun for kids to drink, my problem would be solved. And I might help out a few other parents along the way. It seemed so simple I couldn’t believe it! I figured I could draw upon my years at technology startups to help me launch and manage the business so I set out to learn about the beverage industry. A short time later, my family and I were out to dinner at a local diner. While my husband was chasing my daughter around the restaurant, I played around with words and letters on a little notepad and came up with the name Wateroos. It seemed so perfect – it shouted ‘water!’ and at the same time was fun and childlike. Next, we did some formal market research just to be sure that Wateroos would be a product parents would embrace. All of the friends I spoke with loved the idea but I needed a little extra reinforcement. The results of our research study were exactly what I had hoped for. Yes… this was something parents really wanted! Now the fun began. We devised the Wateroo-ligans – a crew of cute characters who live in and love the water – and decided to put games on the back of the drink box. We thought this might be just enough to make water fun for kids to drink so that they ask for our healthier product over sugary juices and sodas. We also worked hard to get our fruit-flavored waters to be as delicious as possible without sugar or artificial ingredients. Our refrigerator was over-flowing with samples and there were lots of ‘taste tests’ among friends, family and their children! Finally we all agreed on some great-tasting flavors and were ready to put our delicious beverages into our fun new packaging. We were so excited when the first-ever box of Wateroos came off the line at our manufacturing facility. And our daughter got to be the first child to drink our new Wateroos products – what fun!
Wateroos was born!
And better yet, a few months later, Wateroos was being sold for the first time on store shelves at the local grocery store where we shop. Imagine the smile on my face as we walked down the juice drink aisle and my daughter shouted “Look Mommy, Wateroos”. Now we’re working hard to get Wateroos on more store shelves across the country so that parents everywhere can feel good about giving their kids this great-tasting, healthier beverage. And you can help. Simply print out the card on the Where to Buy page of this Web site, bring it to your local grocer, and let them know that you want Wateroos! We also continue to explore new flavor options for Wateroos and think about ideas for other healthy kids’ products. We’d love to hear from you! Tell us your ideas and what you think about Wateroos! Wishing you dry handbags and happy children.

Young entrepreneur: Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman

Text taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_Hunks_Hauling_Junk
College Hunks Hauling Junk began as a summer project in Washington, D.C. Founders Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman were looking for a way to earn income during the summer of 2002. They borrowed a cargo van from Soliman’s mother and began hauling unwanted items from community residences. In 2004, their business plan won them the Leigh Rothschild Entrepreneurship Competition. With the $10,000 in winnings and personal investment, they incorporated the business. Attribute the catchy name to Soliman’s mother also. In its first two years, the company hauled away more than 4000 tons of junk. Soliman and Friedman donate a portion of revenues to College Bound and the College Hunks Hauling Junk Scholarship Fund. In 2008 the company headquarters moved to Tampa, Florida and in March opened up a call and training center for franchises.
In September, 2008, Friedman and Soliman opened College Foxes Hauling Boxes.
