the bubble bus story

It is your typical “rags-to-bubbles” story.

While surfing the Internet in 2005, John Reider of Kirkwood, MO, came across something he had never seen before… glowing blacklight bubbles. It was just the kind of novelty product that appealed to the perennially youthful and fun-seeking entrepreneur. So he did what few 40-something-year-olds had ever done before.

He ordered some.

John loved these bubbles. He loved them so much, in fact, that he bought the patent and dove head first into learning everything there is to know about the bubble trade. He began to make them himself, later adding his own “traditional” bubble formula. These were no watered down, dime-store bubbles. They were colorful, hearty, long-lasting and just plain bubble-tastic. He sold them all online and through distributors nationwide.

John and his wife, Beth, told their friends about their bubble business, who told their friends, one of whom eventually asked one of the most pivotal, life-changing questions ever asked:

“Could you blow your bubbles at my daughter’s birthday party?”

“Why not?” John asked. So the couple purchased a professional bubble machine, loaded it into their vintage station wagon, set up shop at the party and proceeded to WOW the partygoers.

Word spread as fast as their bubbles on a windy afternoon. Soon, John and Beth were creating Bubble Extravaganzas at high school dances. Community festivals. Weddings. Corporate picnics. The list just kept growing. Once people experienced the Bubble Bus, they had to have it. It appealed people of all ages, from 2 to 200!

As requests poured in, the couple — both of whom had other careers — moved their fledgling bubble-blowing business to a pick-up truck and, by 2009, to a rigged-out, colorfully hand-painted school bus. The Bubble Bus was born.

Today, the Reiders operate a fleet of three Bubble Busses and are franchising more to other fun and outgoing people who want to earn a second income, while spreading bubbles — and joy — throughout the land. They want to see how big this bubble business will blow!

Bubbles. Bubbles. Everywhere. That’s the mission.
