Clean Designs, the parent company of Clean Bottle, is marketing the business for sale… ‘seeking a strategic or operational acquirer that can leverage the brand and its technologies to its fullest potential.’
David Mayer founded the business in 2010, creating the patented Clean Bottle design which helps to solve the common problem of cleaning sports bottles. The business quickly gathered media attention through its viral marketing campaign at the Tour de France and an appearance on NBC’s Shark Tank.
After building the business for the past eight years, David reports, “Oour team has worked hard for the previous eight years to prove the market need for this solution, and we are ready to see that taken to the next level with new ownership.”
In addition to the original Clean Bottle, the Clean Designs bottle portfolio also includes the award-winning Square, a general use, lifestyle water bottle with the same removable bottom in a unique square shape to prevent rolling. The Square and the Clean Bottle are sold in major retailers including REI and Target. And, in addition to its retail business, all of the company’s bottles are available to order with custom branding options.
The company is working with Bell Lap Advisors as it considers the options for moving the brand forward. Russell Cree, Managing Partner at Bell Lap Advisors, said, “This business represents a nice opportunity to participate in the rapidly growing portable hydration market, with a unique, differentiated, and patent-backed, product line.”
