#4 Building a great brand w/ Ed Foy - CEO & Co-Founder of PRESS
In this episode, we were delighted to be joined by Ed Foy, co-Founder and CEO of PRESS. PRESS is fast becoming one of the UK's best-known health and wellness brands, with a thriving direct to consumer business, as well as now stocking their juices, smoothies, soups and vegan meals in over 500 retailers throughout the UK, and now the world! PRESS recently struck a deal with Soho House Group to supply their juices worldwide, fair to say that's a pretty big moment. Ed co-founded PRESS 6 years ago and the journey has been an incredibly interesting one. From selling juice out of a bathtub in Old Street Station, to having a chain to juice bars in London, to now running an online vegan-supermarket of sorts. Throughout the episode, there are many great lessons, including having multiple revenue streams, the art of pivoting businesses and how to keep smiling, even when it gets really tough!
