Mitch first tried out the Re-Fridge idea when he bought used fridges from classmates gearing up for summer vacation in 2015. He kept the fridges over the summer, and in the fall he sold them to incoming freshman at a discount over comparable products from big-box stores – and with the added convenience of picking them up and delivering them free of charge right to the students’ dorms. Word of the business grew and Mitch soon found himself busy. Within weeks, he was talking to friends and colleagues about ways to expand to other schools and further the beneficial impact of his idea. After months of hard work and organization, Re-Fridge was officially launched in March of 2016.
