Cool Planet Water was featured on Gary and Shannon’s #SmallBusinessShoutout segment on KFI AM 640. Gary and Shannon spoke to Amanda Richart about Cool Planet Water and the impact COVID-19 has had on our business.
All of us at Cool Planet Water are grateful for the support that Gary, Shannon, and KFI AM 640 have shown small businesses like Cool Planet Water during these uncertain times.
Here’s What We Talked About…
Cool Planet Water is a small, family-owned business that was started over a decade ago after realizing how much households and businesses, in particular, were spending on something as basic as water. We wanted to provide an alternative to 5-gallon water jugs and individual bottles that would be significantly more affordable and environmentally conscious. So we started offering bottleless water dispenser rentals with a focus on serving businesses in Orange County, Los Angeles County, and beyond. Rather than paying for a bottled water cooler and spending an additional $8-10 per 5-gallon jug, plus delivery and maintenance costs, Cool Planet Water offers bottleless water dispenser and water cooler rentals that provide an unlimited supply of filtered drinking water all year long with a flat monthly fee. From small offices to large corporate campuses, warehouses to fitness centers, Cool Planet Water saves businesses hundreds or even thousands every year while allowing them to provide clean, safe drinking water for employees and customers.
Because our focus is on serving businesses, we have been hit especially hard by COVID-19. With so many businesses closed or struggling during the shutdown, we have seen a huge drop-off in new customers. Rather than switching to a more affordable drinking water service like Cool Planet Water, many businesses are opting to cancel their services altogether while they wait to see if and when their business will make a comeback. We have lost dozens of customers because their businesses have permanently closed due to the economic impact of COVID-19. Thus far, we have not received any of the small business loans offered by the SBA through the CARES Act, so we are working hard to keep our business above water while we wait for the economy to start bouncing back.
