Simple Idea Brings in $6 Million

June 8, 2006 at 6:33 pm 2 comments

THE ENTREPRENEUR: Kate Adams, 46, founder of Snap-Saver LLC in San Diego

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Snap-Saver food-storage containers, which come in five sizes, keep kitchen cupboards organized by offering a unique feature–each lid snaps to the bottom of the container, so users never have to search for matching lids. Snap-Saver lids also snap to each other. Early customers included East Coast chains Boscov's, Organized Living and Wegman's. In March 2005, the company had its first run on QVC, and sales to Sears stores nationwide started in September 2005.

STARTUP: $12,000, which Adams spent to obtain a patent and develop a computer simulation video of her product

SALES: Projected to hit $6 million in 2006
