About Mix ‘N’ Match Creamery: This is not your regular million dollar startup, it’s just a shop in Portland, Oregon, USA. But it is an amazing startup nonetheless and its business model is very simple. They sell ice-creams, not just any ice-creams but something of a speciality, these ice creams are so fresh they are made just after 30 seconds of order. Mr Mayberry was an aerospace engineer and he used his knowledge of the field and past experience of working in a food and beverages shop to develop his business.
The concept of their product is, that regular ice-cream take a day to freeze up, so the crystals formed are slow and gradual, if you freeze the blend (blood of ice cream + flavours) instantly in 10-15 seconds you will get a different structure. This process gives a fine even fine texture to ice-cream. Mr Mayberry makes his ice-cream in 10-15 seconds by preparing the blend and dipping it into liquid nitrogen. The -150 to -190 degree Celsius nitrogen makes instant ice-cream.
Since their inception, the Mix ‘N’ Match Creamery has amassed $ 3 million in revenue, and 33 employees in three years. Their details of expansions and further funding were not available.

The terrain so far has not been smooth for Hampton Creek, apart from gaining consumer’s confidence, the Egg lobby and vested interest groups had acted against the company so far, but the company was able to fight them off.

But it’s not just another e-commerce website, the catch is, you don’t get to choose a product, it’s a surprise, and it is successful so far so it is indeed an amazing startup. You will learn about your product only when you get it. The business model is very successful so far, the reception from their client base is positive which was surprising. Their price Range starts from $ 10 to $ 300.
So, now that you know what their business model is, it’s safe to assume that their product is not e-commerce material, but it’s the “joy of surprise that people get when they receive their package. The Something Store doesn’t send people low quality, broken or used items, they will send your item with a reasonable value. The Something Store procures its inventory from wholesalers (~50%), liquidators (~40%), and manufacturers (~10%). Since they save money on marketing, cataloguing and retail chain they are able to sell product on retail value and still make a fat profit off it. The target audience for The Something Store is Gift Givers, Thrill Seekers and Deal finders as sometimes people get a better product at low prices.
We don’t have figures in yet, but it is sure that The Something Store’s business model is intact and they are turning hefty profits.
