A protein drink that tastes like a coffee house gourmet coffee drink? It sounds like an active person’s dream come true! But the Greg and Beth Smith’s personal dream of expanding the product line with new flavors was halted when our economic environment took a turn for the worse; banks were leery of lending, let alone to a start-up business. When they turned to Fresno CDFI the couple was able to secure $30,000 for the expansion and promotion of a new product line. CLICKco. – the developer, manufacturer and distributor of CLICK, a unique product that combines protein and espresso coffee in a great tasting all in the beverage – and founders Greg and Beth Smith made this dream, theirdream, a reality in 2008 when their product hit store shelves across the nation and Canada. CLICK was an instant success.
Today CLICKco’s new flavor, Vanilla Latte, is doing well and was rated as one of the “#1 Hot New Releases” in the protein category at Amazon.com in 2010. Along with this achievement CLICKco is currently selling in 34 retailers (online, in stores, and internationally), including Vitamin Shoppe Drugstore.com, Vitacost, Netrition, Bodybuilding.com, and Diet Direct. CLICKco, LLC has now launched an All Natural CLICK product line and has been picked up by the largest natural foods and supplement distributor United Natural Foods Inc. and Select Nutrition.
