You've probably had that fantasy where you barge into your boss' office and scream in their face, "I'm quitting this stupid job and starting a subscription box company that sells delicious international snacks!" OK, probably not the second part. But that's just what a couple did two years ago when they started Universal Yums with $2,000 and a dream -- and now it's a seven-figure company.
One of the entrepreneurs behind Universal Yums took to Reddit yesterday to do an AMA about the ups and downs of starting their own company, which ships a boatload of different snacks from a single country right to your door every single month (a small box of snacks is $14, a large is $25, and you can sign up right here). It hasn't been a completely smooth ride -- according to the AMA, they had to learn on their feet about the e-commerce and imported-food worlds, how to negotiate contracts, and the fear that suppliers might stiff them. But enough about the business: let's talk snacks.
