NEWS: Pooki’s Mahi Announces Record-Breaking Momentum With 2015 Results

Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 30th, 2016

Pooki’s Mahi, a Silicon Valley promotional products single serve coffee maker startup delivering award-winning 100% Kona coffee pods, today announced it achieved a 3000% increase in revenue from new customers and over 15000% increase over-all growth since 2012.

Pooki’s Mahi sets new revenue records by revolutionizing supply chain management using Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller’s product lifecycle management framework to introduce and launch new products. Pooki’s Mahi welcomes new wholesale customers from Europe, Australia, Japan, Africa, Canada and US.

Pooki’s Mahi achieves a #13 ranking representing San Francisco on a Top 100 Cities list driven by rapid adoption by customers; brand expansion in wholesale and branded channels.

“In January 2015 I was at a cross roads and given the directive to streamline Pooki’s Mahi so the P&L will be successful by the time 100% Kona coffee pods single serve cups launched and exceed our target revenue goals by December 2015. Measured every vendor and supplier against our score card to see if they consistently meet our high standards regardless if they were approved,” says Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller.

Les explains, “We overhauled our entire operations and supply chain ecosystem. Outsourced valuable functional areas to vendors or suppliers who passed our lengthy RFI/RFP process. Pooki’s Mahi’s RFI/RFP process is invite only and geared to cut any potential vendor or supplier who isn’t a cultural fit. Our strong technical, operations and digital marketing backgrounds helped prune the list of vendors and suppliers who failed to meet the target metrics. We built integrations and tools to automate 95% of Pooki’s Mahi’s core business.”

“Pooki’s Mahi would not be where it is today without solid partners leading the functional areas in the supply chain ecosystem to deliver our award-winning Hawaiian 100% Kona coffee pods. Not bad for a start up that has $0 loans and $0 investment from the venture capital community. Kudos goes to Pooki’s Mahi’s executive advisors, subject matter experts and partners for believing in me and keeping the teams focused,” chuckles Les Magsalay-Zeller

Pooki’s Mahi began with a simple idea: bring hard to find, highly valued, and award-winning products to customers at an affordable price, quickly and efficiently. The startup operates similar to a mini-Business Unit inside a high tech corporation with metrics driven goals, outsourcing entire functions to partners and holding each functional area accountable. If a function or partner did not perform within a given time frame against the target metrics (like fulfillment, manufacturing or digital marketing), then pivot and divert investments into areas that are performing.

Pooki’s Mahi’s Advisory Board is broken into two levels: executives and subject matter experts. Executive Advisors are currently executives that guide the strategy, partnerships and long term planning. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) focus on advising day-to-day operations.

Pooki’s Mahi is a high tech company selling a low-tech product (sustainable 100% Kona coffee single serves). Pooki’s Mahi’s products are sold online and can be purchased at several global marketplaces. New products are launched and available for purchase on Pooki’s Mahi, Pooki’s Mahi’s Subscription store and select marketplaces like Overstock.

The Silicon Valley startup looks forward to further growth and innovation by delivering against the approved 2016 roadmap. New product introductions include 100% Kona coffee pods for Keurig coffee pods single serve brewers, whole leaf teas in single serve form, branded channel to over 40,000 distributors, Kosher certification and BRC manufacturing certification.

Pooki’s Mahi’s CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller works hard to source suppliers that consistently produce award-winning products for long-term partnerships. As an expert in New Product Introduction (NPI) and Go-To-Market (GTM) launch Les brokered partnerships with world-class companies with a strong operations focus.
