What began with a phone call from the Discovery Director of ‘The Grommet’ - one of America‘s best-known product launch platforms - quickly evolved into CouchCoaster’s debut on their retail platform in September 2016. The launch was a great success and Barry was delighted with the customer reviews on their website which speak volumes about the product.

Meanwhile, Hit Products also received an order to sell CouchCoaster on the American shopping channel ‘Home Shopping Network’ - better known as HSN.
