VITAMIX A Muscle Car For Your Kitchen

Vitamix is privately owned and operated by the Barnard family and began in 1921 when William Grover Barnard began traveling the country selling modern kitchen products. Cnet wrote that William Grover Barnard, the founder of Vita-Mix, released his company’s first blender in 1937, but it wasn’t until television came around that Vita-Mix was able to introduce blenders to Americans. In 1949, Vita-Mix ran what the company says was the first ever infomercial before long, blenders were flying off of the shelves, and Vita-Mix was rerunning the ad in markets across the country.
