Drew Goldsberry didn't like the idea of breathing in all the air freshener chemicals he needed to fill his house with to mask the smell of his and his dog's existence. So he looked backward to how his grandma killed household smells and remembered the cinnamon broom.
By some miracle the URL cinnamonbrooms.com was available and Drew and his partner found someone who could make cinnamon brooms and voila! Cinnamonbrooms.com the business was born.
Drew outlines his entrepreneurial idea for Peter Ricchiuti and his Out to Lunch guests, Lena Sendik and Caroline Roemer Shirley.
