Name/Title: Chris Johnson, Founder of BiteMyApple.co
Launch Date: 2011
Inspiration for opening: I stood in line for three hours when Apple launched the first generation iPhone. At that moment, I knew that Apple had something special, and I wanted to be a part its success. So, I decided to start a business that sells iPhone accessories where I could share my favorite products with consumers.
Merchandise source: Almost everything comes direct
Best selling item: Right now it's the MOS "Magnetic Organization System". It's one of those "Why didn't I think of this?" products for your desktop. Who likes cables falling of your desk? This is so simple it's genius.
Your favorite item: I would say the Snooze because I use it every day- and the Olloclip because it helps me take a better picture.
Your favorite store (other than your own): I'm not your typical geek but if I'm anywhere near a Best Buy I have to make that stop.
