Lawrence Twombly, (Chairman, and Director) Lawrence Twombly (Buzzy) is a native of Manchester, NH (52). Lawrence has been called “Buzzy” by everyone who knows him. His father’s nickname was “Buzz” so “Buzzy”, who was full of boundless energy for Larry Jr was a perfect fit. Shortly after the birth of their first child, Buzzy went to work as a sales manager for a snack distributor in San Diego County. Buzzy was tasked to increase the number of offerings to be distributed in the Company’s portfolio. Buzzy suggested beverages. After an exhausting search for just the right brand, Buzzy decided to develop one of his own. Buzzy’s Coffee was born in early 1995. Buzzy’s Coffee was a cutting-edge ready-to-drink bottled ice coffee in a 12oz glass bottle with a beautiful, award winning, shrink sleeve label. With the backing of his wife, both financially and emotionally, Buzzy built the small product to $2,000,000 is sales. At this time, Pepsi and Starbuck’s teamed up to launch their version of the ready to drink Frappuccino. Frappuccino is a product that still dominates the segment. Knowing that he couldn’t compete with the might of Pepsi, Buzzy sold the brand to a larger company for $2,000,000 in an all stock deal. Throughout the process of developing Buzzy’s Coffee, Buzzy befriended some of the most important and influential people in the beverage and distribution business. He developed a reputation of being able to get things done without spending a lot of money to do it. He also developed a reputation of developing beverage packaging that is not only cutting edge and attractive but also cost effective. Buzzy’s reputation and contacts afforded him the opportunity to consult with other beverage companies and entrepreneurs needing assistance in developing and launching their beverage brands. Buzzy helped develop the packaging and distribution of such brands as Vitamin Water and Fuze just to name a couple. After the sale of both Fuze for $240 million and Vitamin Water to Coke for $4.2 million, Buzzy enlisted the assistance of his vast beverage contacts to develop his own brands that he could design, develop and bring to market. Some of those products include AND (Antioxidant Nutritional Drinks), RK Super (Roadkill vitamin packed kids drink), and Pumped Fitness CBD. Buzzy has a successful history of incubating brands and developing them into multi-million-dollar brands in the highly competitive beverage industry. Mr. Twombly is just getting started. There are many more brands in the future and Buzzy intends to make sure the public will enjoy them all.
