We had the good fortune of connecting with BE FREE IMPORTS and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi BE FREE, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
Our business is centered around bridging the gap between producers who make unique, quality goods and the U.S. market. The idea for BE-FREE IMPORTS LLC was founded during the founders experience in Peace Corps Guatemala.

During his service he traveled through out Latin America, learned about different cultures, and was exposed to cooperatives / manufacturers who produced 1st class products and goods.

What should our readers know about your business?
A key component of our business is focused on finding unique products to import that add value to the U.S. market. The love for travel has empowered us to travel off the beaten path, learn about different cultures and find products to import.

A key lesson we’ve learned along the way is to do something your are passionate about. Finding our passion has allowed us to overcome challenges. The ability to positively impact our partners through financial contribution has provided the ultimate reward for us.

BE-FREE IMPORTS mission is to bring quality goods from afar!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
For an active, but leisure weekend in Houston we would begin with enjoying cold beer and pizza at Axelrad. Our hammocks are one of the main attractions at this location.

The next day we would swing over to HTX Sports Creek for a game of outdoor volleyball and tacos.

The following day we would choose one of Houston’s many bayou paths for a leisure walk and stop by Mango Beach for a cold mangonada!
