The company’s eCommerce platform allows CPG manufacturers to create branded storefronts that make it easy for the mainstream consumer to buy all of their household goods online. Alice has been featured on CNN, Rachael Ray, The Today Show, and more, due in large part to Alice.com’s social media efforts. The Alice co-founders Brian Wiegand and Mark McGuire have an entrepreneur track-record that includes three previous start-up successes including their last company Jellyfish.com which sold to Microsoft. Rebecca’s favorite brand of toilet paper is Cottonelle.
