This month, 25 years ago, Barclay Hansen and I started AquaHealth in his rented apartment in Dedham, Massachusetts. Our concept was simple: To deliver great fountain water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water to restauranteurs.
Our mission has expanded from this simple premise to include sparkling and flavored waters to corporations, hotels, colleges, military bases and many other venues. Our message of sustainable, high quality value-based beverages has helped us reach many corners of the United States and other countries.
We could not have grown and succeeded without the help of our investors, our fantastic employees, our creative suppliers and our irreplaceable customers.
I’ve enjoyed the ride, and with today’s customers, I am as excited about our business as I have ever been!
