Entrepreunial Story about CLICK

After leaving corporate jobs to focus on our family, we started a small chain of fitness centers in California.  Our mission was to provide products and services that would support our members to reach their potential.  We learned many members were using energy and gourmet coffee drinks as a breakfast or snack, and we were passionate about finding a better way to deliver the energy and nutrition our members wanted without all the high sugar, empty calories and fat.  We knew the need for energy support in our world is undeniable, but we also knew that the current “pick-me-up" beverage offerings are often nothing more than caffeinated candy. That did not CLICK with our desire for healthier, better-for-you products.  

In 2007, Greg and I were talking about this dilemma and then it CLICKed!  How about a nutritional, all-in-one drink, that brings together the rich flavor and energy lift of espresso coffee with the health benefits of protein and vitamins that is low in sugar, calories and fat!   The biggest challenge was to make it taste really great.  Let’s face it, even if it’s good for us, we won’t drink it if it doesn’t taste good!  

After much trial and error, CLICK was created; a healthy espresso-coffee protein drink that contains premium-grade, lasting protein, essential vitamins and minerals with a double-shot of espresso coffee in a low-calorie, 12 ounce serving.  We designed CLICK to be the first protein based drink to that can be made as a hot frappe-licious coffee!  CLICK can be enjoyed hot, cold or blend with ice which some self-proclaimed CLICKaholics claiming it tastes even better!

CLICK became extremely popular with our members.  As word spread and demand grew, we knew we had developed a product that needed to be shared beyond our local community.  In less than a years’ time, CLICKco LLC, makers of CLICK Espresso Protein Drink MIx, was created;  a small entrepreneurial company (with big plans). Today, we still have that same passion and mission 

CLICK (klik) CLICK means to succeed, connect and fit well together – created to energize people – to reach their potential success in health and in life.

Today, CLICK is a top selling coffee protein drink mix on Amazon with hundreds of 5-star reviews and is sold at major online retailers such as and satistying 1000's of customers to CLICK On!
