Grins in schools

Meeting with foodservice managers in the Wilkes County schools. Grins will be launching in Wilkes County in March 2012.

Grins exists because a school foodservice manager told us how frustrated he was with the options on the market to serve his students. He wanted something without too much sugar or artificial ingredients, without unnecessary sodium, caffeine or carbonation and with a taste kids would go for.

When we took him the first sample of Grins, he said we’d nailed it (get the full story here). Since then, we have been on the road meeting with as many school foodservice managers as we can. These folks are on the front lines of the fight for healthier kids, and they care deeply about what they serve their students. When we tell them about Grins, they go crazy for the taste, the nutritional profile and the positivity behind The Official Beverage of Happy People.

Here’s a list of schools and school divisions where our beverages are served. If you are a school foodservice official and would like to talk to us, e-mail Nathan Battle or Ben Bloodworth.
