Wine, Anytime?! Why Didn't I Think of That?!
We asked our fun, smart and savvy friends, Shannon and Regan, the inventors and owners of Goverre, some questions about their company and path to success. In case you haven't heard, Goverre is the hottest portable wine glass that people are going crazy for! These awesome entrepreneurial moms got all the way to Shark Tank. Read on to learn how Shannon and Regan developed, launched and are enjoying the success of Goverre.
How did you meet & partner up? Regan and I (Shannon) met 7 years ago when our kids were in preschool together...specifically, we were all on a field trip to the pumpkin patch. Have been friends ever since.
How did you decide on the name "Goverre"? We wanted the name to be one word and unique. We like GO because our glass is portable and VERRE is the French word for glass...so essentially it means 'to-go glass.'
Did you foresee Goverre being as "hot" as it is? Not really?! Ha! Well, we definitely REALLY hoped it would be 'hot.' We did a lot of 'proof of concept' before we hit the ground running, so we knew overall people would most likely like and/or buy it. However, have been overwhelmed and extremely grateful at how well it's been received.
Favorite music to listen to while packing up Goverre to ship out to all your adoring fans? 90s hip hop and Bruno Mars!!
What are YOUR favorite wines to drink out of your Goverre? We love a crisp Chardonnay, especially during the summertime. Rose is always delicious, too!
As entrepreneurs with families, how do you balance it all? We're still trying to figure that out! ;) It is hard but fortunately, our husbands have been very supportive and super hands on with the kids through this entire journey. We could not do this without their support.
What was your favorite part about appearing on Shark Tank? Oh gosh! So many things...the adrenaline of doing your pitch on set in front of The Sharks, the outcome of getting three of The Sharks (Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec) to invest, watching it air on TV for the first time. It was a surreal and incredible experience.
How long has Hi Sweetheart been stocking Goverre? Since October 2015
We love Goverre and so do our customers! Every time we get an order in, they fly off our shelves. Stay tuned for our next shipment due in August!
