- What challenges do you continue to encounter as your business grows and becomes more successful? Are people hesitant to start squatting?
Bobby Edwards and family designed the Squatty Potty® and are the owners of Squatty Potty LLC based in St. George, Utah. The family has always been health conscious, but after a few years of some colon issues they began looking for a natural, inexpensive solution that would help correct these issues. That’s when they found a wonderful and simple solution…squatting.
The Edwards found that getting their knees above their hips while going to the bathroom made a remarkable difference, but they weren’t able to find a good, permanent solution for getting into the squatting position. After trying different stools, books and buckets the family decided there had to be a better solution. This is when the Squatty Potty® toilet stool was born. In the Edwards’ words, “It’s our goal to change the way we poop, one ‘stool’ at a time.”
