Who Owns Squatty Potty?
Bobby, Judy and Bill Edwards are the creators of Squatty Potty. Before inventing Squatty Potty, Bill and Judy were already retired, while Bobby was a designer and contractor. Judy’s LinkedIn indicates that she retired from the company, while Bobby is listed as the CEO of Squatty Potty.
The motivation to invent Squatty Potty came from a personal affliction. Judy had hemorrhoids and constipation, which made it difficult for her to defecate. On consulting a doctor, she was told to trying squatting. However, this became an uphill task.
Judy consulted her son, Bobby, about her problem. Bobby, leveraging on his background in design, ably made a step stool. When Judy tried the stool, she pooped with ease. The Edwards then gifted these stools to family and friends, who also got instant relief.
Bobby then decided to open a website and ordered for Squatty Potty to be made in bulk. In their first year of operations, the company was able to make sales worth $1 million. This was impressive as the company was still hosted inside the family garage.
