First & Only Beverage Grade CO2 Filling Station & Beverage System.
Fountain Master® is changing the way people buy and consume cold beverages.The company was founded to develop an affordable line of cold Beverage dispensing systems and consumables. Innovative patented technologies will be used to create cold beverages in a variety of carbonated and non-carbonated drinks, such as fruit juices, vegetable juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, vitamin waters, protein drinks, iced coffees, iced teas, seltzers, sodas and beer with just the push of a button!
Rather than stocking up on cumbersome cases and bottles of cold beverages, Fountain Master® offers an all-in-one solution for virtually all cold beverage needs in a household. The company will continue to partner with market-leading, regional, and craft beverage brands to provide a diverse selection of carbonated and non-carbonated drinks.
No bigger than your average coffee machine, the Fountain Master® beverage maker is affordable, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. And with our revolutionary CO2GO™ Filling Stations popping up in grocery stores all across the country, you always have a quick, convenient, and cost-effective way to refill your CO2 cylinders for carbonated drinks.
With an intellectual property portfolio consisting of 10 patents (issued and pending), 4 trademarks and a dozen unique web domains, Fountain Master® is positioned to become an industry leader. We’re forming strategic partnerships every day to get our CO2GO™Filling Stations into more locations and even working on smart home integrations for our countertop drink machine.
We’re so confident of the impact Fountain Master® will have that we passed on an offer to sell our intellectual property portfolio for $5 million. Read on to find out why!
Fountain Master is the most affordable, convenient, and environmentally friendly way to enjoy beverages.
Existing at-home beverage makers are extremely pricy. Beverage makers currently on the market cost upwards of $400. The Fountain Master®? A much more affordable $99. Plus, our groundbreaking CO2GO™ Filling Stations will revolutionize the at-home beverage making market by providing CO2 cylinder refills for under $10 which is 33% less than the cylinder exchange programs other home beverage maker users are currently forced to use.
Another unique way we cut down costs is by eliminating the costly and ineffective refrigeration system used in current cold beverage makers. Using a method that focus groups have praised for its simplicity and multi-purpose use, Fountain Master® has a patented, detachable filtered water pitcher that you store in your refrigerator for drinking water, and when you’re ready to make a drink, simply attach the perfectly chilled water to your machine.
The Fountain Master® beverage maker in and of itself is already creating a whole new world of convenience — instead of constantly buying cases of bottled beverages from the store, often times in sizes you can’t finish in one sitting, you can now push a button and get a wide variety of beverage choices in any size you want. Using our patented multi-serve technologies, you can get one drink or multiple drinks from our beverage system without inserting a new cartridge for each drink.
One Fountain Master® Multi-Serve Cartridge can produce 144 oz. of beverage which is equivalent to a 12-pack of 12 oz. cans.
But we took convenience to a whole new level with the CO2GO™ Filling Stations. The main pain point for consumers of at-home beverage makers is the distribution and logistics of the CO2 cylinder refilling.
CO2GO™ is an automated vending machine conveniently located in your grocery store, similar to a Redbox or Coinstar machine. It is the First & Only Self-Serve CO2 Cylinder Filling Station on the market. When your CO2 cylinder runs out, simply bring it with you on your next shopping trip and refill it.
CO2GO™ cylinders are equipped with a patent pending technology that will allow you to conveniently refill your CO2GO™ CO2 cylinder with a swipe of a credit card and a push of a button. Simply purchase a new CO2GO™ cylinder at our discounted rate, fill the cylinder at one of our convenient grocery store locations, and use in your at-home sparkling beverage maker.
To provide even more convenience, CO2GO™ cylinders offer compatibility with SodaStream sparkling beverage makers and Samsung refrigerators.
Environmentally Friendly & Energy Efficient
Over 2 million 2-liter bottles are sent to US landfills every hour. We’re taxing our environment in unsustainable ways. Reducing our waste is one of the easiest ways to help fix this. Unlike other cold beverage makers and single-serve coffee machines, we have developed a way to provide multiple single-serve drinks using only one cartridge, thus further reducing waste.
The size of one Fountain Master® Multi-Serve Cartridge is comparable to the size of one 12 oz. soft drink can or two 8 oz. Keurig Kold Pods. One multi-serve cartridge dispenses up to 144 oz. of beverage, which is equivalent to twelve 12 oz. cans of soda.
Our patented detachable water pitcher enables us to eliminate a bulky, expensive and inefficient refrigeration based water cooling systems from the Fountain Master® machine, thereby cutting down your environmental footprint even more. Why use more electricity to keep water cooling in two places, two feet away from each other?
Attractive, Compact, & Smart Design
Refrigeration based beverage machines are large, heavy, and use up much of our precious counter space. Fountain Master® has a sleek, compact design that takes up minimal space on your countertop. The unit weighs only a few pounds and integrates nicely with other small countertop appliances, such as your coffee maker.
Fountain Master’s® filtered water pitcher only makes an appearance when you need to make a beverage, which also makes more room on your countertop. Because the pitcher is stored in your refrigerator, the water is always chilled to the perfect temperature for creating cold beverages. There is never a shortage of cold water when you have multiple water pitchers ready to go. And because the water comes straight from your refrigerator, there’s no need to wait for the water to be chilled by a costly refrigerated beverage machine.
Bonus: Fountain Master is Fun Too!
We designed Fountain Master® to simulate a post-mix Fountain Style™ drink experience typically found at a restaurant. It’s an interactive experience that everyone loves, while also delivering fresher and crisper drinks.
For the past 5 years Fountain Master® has engineered, researched, developed, and patented several unique technologies that will launch us ahead of the competition and create barriers to entry for potential competitors. In fact, several companies looking to enter the cold beverage system market are currently infringing on several aspects of our intellectual property.
We’ve had strong industry interest for licensing our technology from several companies including: SodaStream, Sparkling Drink Systems, Focus Products Group, Jarden Corp, and Nestle.
We also developed relationships with several reputable partners for production and manufacturing in Korea, China, and the US. Several companies have inquired about exclusive rights for distribution overseas.
Fountain Master® is currently pursuing distribution agreements, license agreements and strategic partnerships with grocery stores, big-box retailers, and convenience/drug stores to lay the groundwork for the launch of our Beverage System and CO2GO™ Filling Stations. We are also refining our beverage system into a more compact design prior to our production launch date.
We’re also forming strategic partnerships with market-leading, regional, and craft beverage brands across the beverage industry to provide high-quality and unique flavor selections.
We have many advancements already in the works for Fountain Masters® product life cycle.
In addition to our plug and play WiFi module, we are also working on a smartphone app, data-sharing with third-party interfaces, behavior insight and analysis on beverage consumption, automated notifications, and inventory tracking.
We then plan to create hot beverage options in addition to the unlimited cold options. Think: coffee, tea, even baby formula.
