Success Story: Buzzbox


Location: Southern California - Indio 

Small Business Featured: Buzzbox 

Assistance Received: Access to Capital; Training 

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%. Learn more about the buzzbox sustainability commitment and the environmental impact of this recyclable packaging choice here.
