Why the Marshmallow?
The "marshmallow" was inspired by the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment where a student was given a single marshmallow. They were told they could either eat it now, or wait 15 minutes. If they waited 15 minutes they received 3 marshmallows. The concept of delayed gratification embodies the work we do. The savings we find for our customers grows over time and will continue to do so as our services and solutions mature.
Passionate about saving you money
Founder & CEO
George started Marshmallow Streaming as a hobby to share his cord-cutting knowledge for saving money on cable, internet and streaming services. Equipped with a backpack, a laptop and ethernet cables he helped 10 residents save a combined $12,000 on their cable and internet bill. The results spoke to a major issue in how the industry operates so he decided to turn this hobby into a company to change how cable and internet services are delivered, for the better.
