#336 – Hugh Thomas, Ugly Drinks - This Is The Result Of Two 23-Year Olds In A Pub In London Having A Couple Of Beers

47 minutes

In episode 336, we welcome our guest, Hugh Thomas, founder of Ugly Drinks, a beverage company that makes drinks with no sugar, no sweetener, and no calories and is trying to expose the ugly truth about big beverage. 

 

 

In today’s episode, we hear how Hugh fell in love with the beverage industry so much that he started a company to provide people with a healthy drink at an affordable price. What started with him walking around London to sell drinks one store at a time has now reached over 15,000 stores around the globe! Hugh shares the story of the brand and marketing with the ‘ugly’ name, why there’s such a need for a healthy drink in the market, and what it was like to embrace direct-to-consumer during COVID.
