Fast forward to December 2015. Jeremy’s wife, Rebecca, said she wanted to move to Orlando for a job opportunity. Seeing as how Jeremy spent his days thinking of ways to run over his lazy co-workers with his truck, he wholeheartedly supported the move back to his hometown (Boone High Graduate, 1998).
But he had a dilemma… He didn’t want to find another job he would hate. A few years earlier, Jeremy’s brother in law Mike introduced him to homebrewing. For years he planned on opening a homebrew shop in the Tampa area, but never found the right time. He thought “Maybe, just maybe I could open a homebrew shop in Orlando”.
After a quick google search, he saw that there was only one homebrew shop in town and it wasn’t well liked. So instead of finding another job that would most likely result in him plotting revenge on evil co-workers (and maybe a little jail time), he took a leap of faith and opened Orlando Homebrew Supplies in December 2015.
Jeremy and Chris meet
Around two weeks after opening, Chris and Tammy went to visit the new shop. Tammy is Chris’ wife and Jeremy’s cousin. It had been a few years since Chris brewed a beer but wanted to start brewing again.
He figured it was the perfect time to get started again now that a family member opened a shop. He bought a kit from the shop and decided to revive his homebrewing hobby.
Jeremy heard that Chris was an expert online marketer and asked Chris “Hey, think you can help me with my website and online marketing?”
Chris responded “Sure, for store credit!”
Neither of them realized what just happened. But Chris ROCK and Jeremy PITtman were on a collision course with Sean’s prediction.
