So I love anything that gives me energy...Red Bull, Starbucks, McCafe, Vitamin B-complex, but I have yet to try 5-Hour Energy!
Here are 5 random facts I found about the product...I'm think I'm going to try it out for Country USA!
#1.) 5-Hour Energy was founded by a Buddhist monk. The founder is 58-year-old Manoj Bhargava, now in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He spent most of his 20s living the life of a Buddhist monk and still silently meditates for an hour a day.
#2.) 5-Hour Energy dominates the energy shot market. Even though you see tons of knockoffs . . . like "6-Hour Power" or Red Bull shots . . . 5-Hour Energy owns 90% of the market.
#3.) The company did $1 BILLION in sales last year. And at least $300 MILLION of that was profit.
#4.) Bhargava got the idea in 2003 at a natural products trade show. He saw a sales rep selling a drink that could boost productivity. He realized he couldn't compete with Red Bull or sodas, so he decided to try selling smaller bottles.
#5.) 15% of sales come from the Walmart checkout aisle. 5-Hour Energy is sold in the checkout aisle of every single U.S. Walmart location.
