Born and raised in New York City, Frank Lopera, founded Speedy Energy Drink in June 2011– the newest AND healthiest energy drink on the market right now. Not only is it the first energy drink with a twist-off cap (so you can save it for later), but Speedy also uses the power of Stevia, an all-natural sweetener with 40% less sugar than regular energy drinks. Speedy also helps reduce the risk of cancer by using four essential antioxidants including pomegranate, blueberries, maqui berries, and acai. Plus, there are 60-120 less calories than regular energy drinks!
We talked with this NYC entrepreneur on the launch, of what we believe, will be the next big thing, when it comes to energy, health and New York’s on-the-go lifestyle.
How did you come up with the name, Speedy?
Speedy was my nickname given to me by my pals in my neighborhood. We all grew up in Maspeth, Queens. We would go to raves and to the Limelight and after a few times of going out in the scene, I landed a job at the Limelight, and also started modeling so the nickname kind of stuck.
What makes Speedy different from other energy drinks?
The berry flavor that we have out in the market now is only 100 calories for a 12 oz. It also contains the natural sweetener, Stevia, and is packaged in all aluminum premium bottle with a twist off cap, with four rich antioxidants: Maqui berry, acai berry, pomegranate, blueberries. It has no medicinal aftertaste and has one hundred milligrams of caffeine, which is guarana-natural caffeine.
Anything new we should look out for, from Speedy?
Sugar free berry flavor!
