The Quick Zip Sheet Company, founded and operated by Stapleton area women Elizabeth Sopher and Caroline Portis, won the Capital Championship Tournament. They competed against nine other finalists in Los Angeles to win the $250,000 grand prize.
Quick Zip won the prize for its patented two-piece fitted sheet with a base that stays on the mattress and a sheet that rips off in seconds. The company started with crib sheets and now offers sizes to fit all beds.
The company plans to use their winnings to increase their market share in the juvenile market and to increase awareness and appeal in new markets. “We want people to know Quick Zip and what an awesome product our sheets are,” said Portis.
Founder Elizabeth Sopher was inspired to invent the easy-to-change sheet after struggling with her newborn daughter’s crib sheets. She partnered with Portis, former CFO of The Boppy Company, to grow the business. The Quick Zip product line is available on the company’s website and Amazon.com as well as in select retail stores.
