When and how did your business get started?

Bottoms Up started 10 years ago in a garage in Aberdeen, WA after our founder and CEO, Josh Springer, found himself constantly waiting to get a drink at the bar instead of actually enjoying the bar. Today, we ship to 30+ countries with 10 employees.

What do you love most about the foodservice E&S industry?

Being able to come into the industry and disrupt with new technology is pretty amazing. People are afraid of us and what we are building.

“The bottom line is that businesses are wasting beer and the customer is not satisfied – we’re here to change that.”

What do you find most challenging about the foodservice E&S industry?

Getting people to move away from their old-school ways and adopt new technology is challenging. We’ve seen industry trends slow down the evolution of Bottoms Up because we get boxed as a novelty.

What excites you about joining NAFEM?

We’re pumped about getting exposure to the restaurant industry and showing that we aren’t a fluke—we aren’t going anywhere.
