IZZE Beverage Company

Greg Stroh and Todd Woloson founded IZZE in 2002 in their beautiful home town of Boulder, Colorado, with the singular goal to make a delicious, natural new beverage—sparkling juice—and have a little fun in the process.
Today, six distinctive flavors of IZZE are sold in natural and conventional grocery stores, corner delis, fine restaurants, elementary schools, airlines, coffee shops and cafes all across the country, as well as in the Caribbean and South Pacific. 
Besides our common interest in creating high quality beverages and having fun, we at the IZZE Beverage Company also share a strong desire to give back to the community. This is why our company supports a number of education, artistic, and conservation organizations, through donations of both financial resources and employee time.

When the hotel was purchased on December 5, 2002 by an investment team led by Dan King and Gregory Hartmann (both Boulderites), they did what they do best. With their combined 40 years of hotel consulting and operations experience and the resources of HVS Hotel Management and HVS International, they evaluated all the options. Should this prime real estate (literally steps from the University of Colorado campus) be leveled to build a new "vanilla" hotel or even a residential condo development? Does Boulder really need another upscale, formal, high price hotel? They surveyed business, university, tourism and community leaders, as well as hotel guests. Where's the unmet need? What do guests want?

The decision: Create a new concept. Revive and enrich this solidly built 40-year old hotel property with personality, color and energy that reflects and celebrates Boulder, Colorado - an eclectic and unique town that surrounds us. Keep it affordably priced! (Who really wants to pay more?) Provide a full-service, mid-priced, professionally operated hotel, for corporate/business and leisure guests, with "unexpected" customer service and amenities. Provide opportunities for travelers to quench their thirst for adventure and to experience the "local flavor." Create a fun hotel experience in an informal, casual setting - a "Boulder Outlook Hotel Experience."
