“Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall be done,
and then we shall find the way.” -Abraham Lincoln
Owen Larson is an entrepreneur, inventor, investor and mentor.
Here are some of the things I will teach you if you choose to follow my HonorSnacks business plan. I will show you how to deliver products in a unique display unit ( I have my own design) by a courteous customer route service person (that may be you in the beginning). I will also advice you on vehicle requirements, inventory control, route layout, customer service, banking procedures, employee hiring and training, and customer retention. I have a wealth of knowledge that I want to share with you so you can achieve your dreams. Please read on to find out a little bit about my background…
Owen began his career as an entrepreneur as a young child. Some of his earliest ventures were in seeds, pumpkins, and ballons. During his high school years he was the yearbook photographer; taking photos on his own as well as with a local photographer. He became interested in computer science and quickly became proficient in the use of computers. The computer science teacher even asked him for help. During college he pursued his interest in computer programming for business.
In 1987, he started his own HonorSnacks business. His first warehouse was a small 850 square foot rental home in the town he grew up in. He had to modify the home to accommodate his business. In the beginning, Owen performed all the “jobs” of the business. He was the route driver, tray packer, inventory specialist, coin counter, data entry clerk, warehouse manager, mechanic….and the list could go on. In a short time, he employed 3 people to help run the business. In 2 years, he purchased 6 acres of industrial property including a home, office building and warehouse. The business was doing well and he was well on his way to becoming one of the largest vendors in the area.
In 1992, the warehouse was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Thankfully, no one was injured in the fire. Some people may have given up at this time. Not Owen. He had the business up and running in a matter of 4 days at a rental warehouse. Over the course of the next year, he petitioned the city to re-zone the property and put up a 7500 square foot custom building for HonorSnacks. He ran that business successfully for 15 years servicing over 3000 customers.
After many years in the HonorSnacks business, Owen saw the need to service the customer inbetween the snack tray and the large glass front vending machines. In 2001, he invented and manufactured a small location vending machine, the Clear Choice Revolution. He had a concept of what he wanted and presented it to several engineering firms. He finally chose a firm to do most of the design. He continued to work with engineers, manufacturers and attorneys. He did obtain patents on his work. I have recently updated the Revolution to accept European/UK coin.
I have always had an interest in investing and trading in the stock market. I spent a few years with a trading group evaluating several trading platforms. I am developing another site to accomodate those intrests.
Again, I would like to help you build your own HonorSnacks business and create your dreams. Have Great Day!
