It all began when a family moved from South Africa to the United States chasing after the American Dream. Founder, John Sizer was raised in South Africa and found himself pondering on what he could contribute to the U.S.A. after moving his family across the world. He rented a tiny room out of a large warehouse, licensed the business and brought in his first container, a whopping 100 cases, you heard that right.
He’d label, pack, deliver and ship the orders with the help of his wife, Diana and his daughter, Chloe’. The lengthly hours, drives across the state of Florida to deliver a handful of cases was how it all began. The dedication behind adding to the economy after their move and bringing a piece of home with them to share with the large South African population in the U.S.A. and introducing it to new markets is what made this exciting.
The passion for this industry runs throughout the family. The Sizer’s find success in their approach to this business and joy in watching people explore new products or find a memory in their glass.
It's all about experiencing new products, watching people's reactions when they say ``ah-ha`` that reminds me of home or it takes them back to a heartfelt memory. Founder, John Sizer
