Startup Capital TLH: Season 3, Episode 5

One Fresh Podcast

Most people would say that the best part about a good night’s sleep is waking up feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to meet the challenges of the day. A good night’s sleep can set you up for success, while waking up on the wrong side of the bed can set you up for, well, a different result.

If you’re using sub-par sleeping gear, that well-rested feeling in the morning might be overshadowed by an acute pain in the neck. According to today’s guests, a lumpy old pillow is one big cause of poor sleep, and plenty of other health complaints as well.

Founded by Tallahassee locals Adrianne and Aaron Kautz, One Fresh Pillow is a local startup that designs and manufactures what they’re calling the last brand of pillow you’ll ever buy.

One Fresh Pillow offers a unique double-sided pillow designed to work for both back and side sleepers. To make sure that the pillow you’re sleeping on is indeed fresh, the company is planning a subscription model to let you recieve a new pillow as soon as the old one has lost its fluff.

Started by the Kautzes in 2017, One Fresh Pillow completed their first manufacturing run last year, and the positive reviews are flooding in. Currently, the Kautzes are completely sold out of pillows, but they’ll begin taking orders again soon. You can sign up for updates on their website, and use code STARTUP10 to get $10 off your first pillow.

Host Alissa McShane sat down with the Kautzes to talk branding, marketing, product development, and more during this episode of the Startup Capital podcast by Cuttlesoft.
