    Oxygen Plus sees market for hot air: Canned oxygenPDF Version

    Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal John Vomhof Jr.

    When it comes to marketing opportunities, Oxygen Plus Inc. is moving in some rarified air this summer. The fast-growing, Mahtomedi-based company is promoting its bottled oxygen to pollution-wary Olympic athletes in Beijing and altitude-sick or jet-lagged conventioneers at the 2008 presidential campaigns as part of a new marketing campaign. »

    Entrepreneurial Energy Boost: Oxygen Plus wants to breathe new life into your busy dayPDF Version

    Minnesota Business Magazine

    What started as an idea to help people with lung disease carry their portable oxygen more discretely has turned into portable oxygen marketed to athletes, travelers and people who need a caffeine-free pick-me-up.»

    Oxygen Plus is the brainchild of Christine Warren and a team of creative thinkers who started pondering new methods of delivering oxygen in 2004 and introduced their product two years later. Oxygen Plus comes in slender canisters and subtle scents of peppermint and pink grapefruit. It contains 90 percent pure oxygen, which it delivers in puffs squirted into the mouth. The energy boost lasts about 20 minutes with no post-caffeine-like crash afterward.

    “It’s good after a hard exercise session,” Warren says. “You get yourself back and you’re ready to go.”

    Oxygen Plus represents a different sort of venture for Warren, who has spent most of her working life as a marriage and family therapist and family business consultant. Once she shared the oxygen idea with some of the people she met in those two professions, they began building a team with expertise in business, product design, engineering and marketing to brainstorm how to deliver oxygen in non-medical ways.

    One friend provided $800,000 in seed money. Another used marketing expertise developed at branding and communications company Fallon, whose clients include Sony and Budweiser. An engineer who had worked with NASA contributed to the product design.

    “We have an incredible team. Not one person has left since we started. The character and competency are phenomenal,” says Warren. “They had the opportunity to design the brand and make it happen. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime.”

    The product comes in two sizes of aluminum canisters and is manufactured in the U.S., with some components from Europe and Canada. The plastic dispenser for the 50-oz. canister is refillable. Prices start at $4.99 for a mini-canister to $29.99 for a dispenser with two 5-oz. canisters. A six-pack of refills is $47.50.

    Once they decided to market Oxygen Plus to recreational rather than medical users, the team focused its efforts on spas and hotels, including Canyon Ranch, the W Hotels and the Ritz Carlton chain.

    “We had the pink grapefruit on one of the hotel’s breakfast menus,” Warren says.

    The product has since made its way to more than 800 retail outlets, including ski, bicycle and other sporting goods shops in 35 states, Washington, D.C., a Canadian province and in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Local retailer URBAN Traveler is selling the product at its Uptown and St. Paul stores. Owner Willy van Dooijeweert says Oxygen Plus has been popular with his customers, especially those traveling to high-altitude and polluted destinations. “We always like to have the latest and the newest, and this is really cutting edge,” says Dooijeweert. “The stuff started selling almost instantly. It’s my number-one selling travel accessory in the store since mid-December.”

    Van Dooijeweert says Oxygen Plus is popular among customers who use it to restore oxygen to their systems after long flights. He’s also used it after working 10-hour days and has felt refreshed. “It gets you back to your regular level,” he says. “The effect is there for a while.”

    The Oxygen Plus team has continued to raise money and has other projects on the drawing board. “At some point in the future, especially as we see the market is responding so well, we will be looking for more investments,” says Warren. “We really like running this. We’re trusting the process and figuring that out.”

    The thousands of out-of-towners flocking to the DNC will need to get used to the thin air up there. I’ve seen the Mile High City force many entertainers to slip backstage for a hit of oxygen.»

    But DNC-goers and media members will have access to a boost of big O. Inside the media tent on the grounds of the Pepsi Center, The Denver Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau will provide free puffs of air for anyone with a media credential.

    And Oxygen Plus (ironically a Minneapolis-based company) will set up a booth outside the Hyatt Regency Denver Convention Center Hotel giving out free samples and selling canisters of their products. The booth will be set up for samples and sales from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Aug. 28.

    Official television transcriptPDF Version

    CNN, Democratic National Convention, Denver, CO 

    O’BRIEN: Well, I bet you didn’t know this. There is apparently an official canned oxygen of the Democratic National Convention. Yes, I’m not making that up. It’s called Oxygen Plus. And it’s going to be available to Denver visitor who might find themselves a little bit short of breath from either the Rocky Mountain scenery, because it’s so nice, or the thin air in the mile high city, that they’re known for.»

    The company says that their product is enriched, providing four times the oxygen content than normal air. It ain’t cheap, though. Because the air is free. The prices for the can, which apparently has like 40 breaths worth — 20 breaths worth, I think, is $5. That seems to me, John, to be a fairly on the — if this is like water, bottling water all over again. We should have thought of this idea.

    ROBERTS: Well, some people swear by it. They say that, you know, you take a few breaths of oxygen, and there are those oxygen bars, you know, across this country, and north of the border in Canada as well where they actually started, and people swear it makes them feel better. But I think by most calculations, there is about 15 percent less oxygen in the atmosphere here in Denver at mile high, 5,280 feet. And I’ve got to tell you, I experienced it yesterday. I hit the treadmill for half an hour and was huffing and puffing the whole way along. So maybe a shot of oxygen now and again wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Just until people get a climate adjust (ph).

    O’BRIEN: So you’re feeling it. Have you been seen — have you seen anybody hawking those cans of whatever it’s called, Oxygen Plus?

    ROBERTS: Well, they haven’t come around to us yet, but if they want to come along and give us a sample, we’d be happy to test it out and see how it makes us feel.

  • Oxygen Plus pumps up, breathes easier

    Oxygen Plus pumps up, breathes easierPDF Version

    Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal

    Oxygen Plus Inc. had a website that many customers couldn’t access, a muddled message and few products for sale in stores when it met with a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal panel of experts earlier this year. Four months later, things look different for the Minnetonka canned-air seller.»

    Oxygen Plus Founder and President Chris Warren and CEO Andre Peschong said in an interview that the company is getting ready to roll out a new website that will more accurately target key consumers. Also, it’s working on a deal with an unidentified nutrition retailer, which may sell a private-label version of Oxygen Plus’ products.

    “[We] have a plan to move this company forward that is really solid,” Warren said.

    A new Oxygen Plus website should go live within 30 days, Warren and Peschong said.

    When Oxygen Plus participated in the Business Journal’s workshop session, our panelists were surprised to find that the company’s website was incompatible with popular computing devices and applications. The new site will address that shortcoming and be easier for marketing affiliates and customers to use.

    The new site also will offer one-click buying and, for more regular customers, an option to periodically receive more products and be billed automatically.

    “The easier you make the buying experience, the better,” Peschong said.

    The company already sells its products through other websites. However, if the firm’s discussions with the retailer go well, Oxygen Plus could have cans on the shelves of 800 stores by September, Peschong said.

    Oxygen Plus also plans to spend more on direct-to-consumer marketing, a strategy that will be simpler than the company’s previous approach, where it touted all of the product’s purported benefits indiscriminately to see what stuck.

    They’ve decided to hone in on two specific groups: sports-oriented users, such as high-elevation skiers, and health and wellness customers.
    Proactive marketing to these groups through social-networking sites and other online venues will bring potential customers to Web pages custom-made for mountain bikers or skiers, with different pitches tailored to the associated activity.

    “We’ll be able to define which message is having the highest impact,” he said.

    Following the advice of the panel to reach out to influencers with the product, Warren is hitting the health and wellness expo circuit to meet with investors, leaders and trendsetters.

    The company also will continue to pitch its products to a more broadly defined third group of users: consumers who want an energy boost, hangover cure or improved focus. Oxygen Plus wants to reach those people at the places they frequent. For instance, to reach students, Oxygen Plus may market its cans at college bookstores.

    Other adjustments should have a more direct impact on the company’s top and bottom lines. Oxygen Plus is trying to reduce the cost of making the oxygen cans. It’s also increased prices on some products by between 20 and 25 percent.

    “No one has taken issue with it,” Warren said. “I always thought we were underpriced.”

    With those changes in the works, the company expects revenue to grow to $1 million in 2011, compared to $300,000 last year.

    “We feel that the timing is right, our product is right and we have a competitive advantage,” Peshong said.

    Tennis Legend Vic Braden Elevates the Game as Oxygen Plus AmbassadorPDF Version

    PRWeb

    Oxygen Plus (O+), the leading purveyors of 95% pure, portable, recreational oxygen, today announced plans to elevate the game of tennis through the endorsement of Vic Braden, tennis legend and member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Aligning mutual goals, O+ Ambassador Braden and Oxygen Plus are partnering to enhance the performance of professional tennis players through the benefits and technology of O+ recreational canned oxygen.»

    Vic Braden has a singular professional goal: To help athletes maximize performance and enjoyment of his or her chosen sport in the shortest period of time. He has spent much of his career coaching players to improve their game with more precision and focusing on performance advancement through technology. Esteemed in the tennis community as the man always on the cutting edge of technological performance advancements, Mr. Braden connected the game with O+’s fundamental purpose – to aid athletes in improving performance, mental concentration and recovery.

    Tennis players have a grueling schedule, with daily back-to-back practices and two to six hour matches. Not only is the game itself intense, the pace of the sport leaves little time for recovery. Braden, Founder of the Vic Braden Tennis College, notes, “Simply put, when energy drops, performance drops. I’m always seeking ways to help players enhance what they naturally have. Oxygen Plus is one of the most exciting products I have seen in a long time. It really could be a game changer for many athletes in the tennis world. My partnership with Oxygen Plus will entail several components in the coming months.”

    “We could not be more pleased to have such a force in the world of tennis choose to become an ambassador of our product, and Oxygen Plus is proud to support professional athletes as they compete to win on national and world stages,” exhaled O+ CEO, Andre Peschong. “Mr. Braden’s vision naturally matches our company’s commitment to health and wellness. As a performance elevating brand, our aim is to put our product in the hands of players across the globe. Ultimately, they can perform better and recover faster through the natural benefits of oxygen. We believe that tennis pros using O+ will see immediate benefits to their game, specifically in the areas of increased mental concentration and post workout recovery.”

    The quality-controlled, 95% recreational oxygen found in O+ products is proven to give athletic performance, recovery and mental concentration that extra edge. O+ oxygen can:

    • Top off your energy level with some fortified breaths before or during an intense workout.
    • Increase stamina and help your muscles recover faster from fatigue.
    • Help your body recover and relax after vigorous exercise.
    • Give your brain the oxygen boost it needs to reach its peak.
    • Clear those cob webs and improve your cognitive performance, including memory and reaction time.

    Exploring the recent celebrity connection between enriched oxygen and anti-aging, “The Doctors” demonstrated how a few deep breaths of Oxygen Plus can be a natural way to be energized and simply feel better because of its ability to help restore depleted oxygen levels. To view the video clip, please visit www.oxygenplus.com/oxygenplus_in_the_news.

    News that celebrity reality TV judge Simon Cowell inhales recreational canned oxygen created quite the buzz in the entertainment world. Cowell, convinced of the anti-aging effects of breathing recreational oxygen, reportedly also takes hits of O2 daily to help relax on set and to replace his smoking habit.

    “We are thrilled ‘The Doctors’ explored how breathing Oxygen Plus is a natural way to feel more alert and revitalized – whether you’re on the dance floor, at the gym or at the office to help stay mentally sharp,” commented O+ CEO Andre Peschong. “The show’s doctors stated how our bodies are designed to function with ambient air (21% oxygen). However, conditions like air pollution, traveling to a higher elevation, air travel, exercise, and breathing stale air that has less than ambient air can deplete your oxygen levels and impede optimal functioning of your cells.”

    Since it is difficult to monitor atmospheric oxygen, Oxygen Plus suggests trying a few quick breaths of O+ to help feel more alert and energetic.

    “The fact the show selected Oxygen Plus products speaks to the unmatched value and excellence our company has been committed to since launching in the emerging energy category in 2006,” explained O+ Founder and President Christine Warren. “With celebrities like Simon Cowell turning to canned oxygen for its relaxation and vitality benefits, high-profile media such as ‘The Doctors’ are increasingly showcasing the applications and benefits of O+ products to a wider audience – benefits our company, and our long-standing customers, have known first-hand for years. We are encouraged by this mainstream adoption, and that more and more people are beginning to hear about and experience how O+ is a healthy, convenient to use, energy supplement that can elevate their experience – at work, home or play.”
