Rod Vandenbos had an idea for a cocktail line, so he took his idea to the Orange County/Inland Empire SBDC Network for assistance to get the idea off the ground. From this idea, buzzbox was born!

Rod focused on sustainable business practices for his packaged, pre-mixed cocktail line from the onset. Rather than using cans, the company opted to use cartons, which use as much as 69% less packaging material than cans do and cut carbon dioxide from shipping by as much as 60%.
