The Case Coolie™
We've all dealt with the hassle of loading and lugging around a heavy cooler full of drinks. The Case Coolie™ eliminates these problems and makes access to cold drinks easier than ever! The traditional cooler was invented over 60 years ago and it needs an update! By combining neoprene and aluminum we've created an insulation barrier that keeps drinks below 55 degrees for well over ten hours but adds very little bulk or weight. It doesn't need ice or ice-packs!
We invented the Case Coolie™ because our friends were lazy. They were so fed up dealing with a normal cooler that they'd buy a 30-pack of cold beer and just set it on the ground while tailgating. After an hour though, the beers got warm - and who likes warm beer? So we decided to wrap the 30-pack with something that kept it cold with little hassle - neoprene and aluminum. The Case Coolie™ keeps a case cold while adding less than 2 pounds in weight and folding down to less than 2 inches.
Why we need help!
We've gotten off to a great start with the Case Coolie™ with 1,000 already produced and over 200 sold! However, we can already tell that the potential for this product is much larger than we anticipated. With several wholesale buyers already lined up and new ideas coming in every day for how to use the Case Coolie™ we need to grow much faster. By contributing to our campaign you are helping us drive down the manufacturing cost and add improvements to our product. By raising $50,000 we can produce 5,000+ Case Coolies™ and access wholesale distributors. This will enable us to stock Case Coolies™ in grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stores, and other retail locations near you!
By helping us raise $50,000, we can do a few additional things with the Case Coolie™.
First, we can improve the design and add further features this year! That means you'll get the upgraded Case Coolie™ and you'll see additional sizes within six months.
Second, it will help protect us against our competitors. The big cooler companies won't leave us alone for long so we need to move fast!
Third, we can expand nationally by selling in stores across the country and share this great new product with everyone!
Although our initial focus was simply to keep drinks cold, the Case Coolie™ is also environmentally friendly. Ice takes both electricity and water to produce. Because the Case Coolie™ is ice-less, it reduces the natural resources normally needed to keep beverages cold. Next time you enjoy a cold drink from a Case Coolie™, rest assured you have kept Mother Nature in mind!
We all share a common link through a program called College Works Painting. We each ran painting businesses in college and have produced over $2 million in revenue, trained over 100 students to run their own businesses, and have greater than ten years of experience between the three of us.
Nick holds a BSBA in Entrepreneurship from Washington University in St. Louis and has been inventing since he could barely walk. From building bobselds from popsicle sticks and trying to sell them to his family to creating a "robot" out of cardboard boxes and pringles cans, he's always been inventing! With the help of his grandma he sewed together the first prototype almost two years ago!
