When No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Texas face off in tonight’s BCS National Championship in the Rose Bowl, Daniel Schapiro and Nathan Feldman will be watching with interest in both teams.
After all, Schapiro’s and Feldman’s EB Performance LLC of Deerfield Beach, which makes bite size protein cookies and bars, has supplied their PB & Whey Protein Bites to Alabama and Texas for the past two years.
“We hope it’s a great game and ends in a tie,” Feldman said with a chuckle. “We’re going to be watching with one side of our bodies dressed in the Crimson Tide of Alabama and the other side in the burnt orange of the Texas Longhorns.”
The workout buddies formed their company after not being able to find a tasty protein bar. Read my colleague Cindy Kent’s March 2008 small business profile about the company here.
EB’s peanut butter snack bar was also used by the LSU baseball and North Carolina men’s basketball teams, both of which won championships last year. Other colleges using EB’s snacks include Florida, FAU, Michigan, Nebraska, and Auburn.
