Juice Beauty chief executive officer Karen Behnke fields more phone calls from investors itching to grab a piece of her San Rafael, Calif.-based organic skin care brand than many people receive from their next of kin.
“I am literally getting a call a day. It has not slowed down, not at all,” she says. Gently, she tells her suitors Juice Beauty is not for sale by repeating this well-worn refusal: “Thank you for calling. We’re not ready for anything like that. We are well financed. Our cash flow is high. We have got a lot of work to do.”
