Private Equity + Paper Towels = Profits (Recruit Rockstars 395)


I’ve long been fascinated by unique business models.

NYC-based Public Goods is a one stop shop for healthy, sustainable, everyday essentials you can trust. They sell products in personal care (shampoo), household goods (cleaners), grocery (cereal).
Uniquely, Public Goods has a $59/year membership model which allows them to smooth revenue & offer high quality products at a great value. And everything they sell is branded Public Goods.
Imagine: no more spending time choosing between a bevy of seemingly-identical brands.
