The Mean Joe Team had worked with Chad before. When he set out on his own, we were happy to lend a hand. Mean Joe founder and CEO Todd Berk reached out to Chad during Bath R Us’ infancy. “You and I have always had a great relationship,” Todd said, “Let me know if you need help in any way, and my team will work on it.” One month into the COVID 19 Pandemic, Chad opened for business.
