Cory Vigil of Denver, Colorado, founder of Boosted, truly lives the “Boosted” lifestyle. As the name of his juice company implies, his main hobby outside of vaping is custom cars, car show, drag racing, and of course, boosting.
He started vaping way back before it was cool, circa 2008. He even opened an e-commerce site selling lower-end e-cigarette hardware at one point, but it failed due to what he says was a lack of industry knowledge. So, it went back to being a hobby as he returned to working for “the man”.
After a few more years of this, Cory decided to give e-juice making a whirl in late 2013/early 2014, utilizing his culinary background to create flavors that were delicious, and not just hype. After feeling like he perfected a couple flavors, Cory send out e-liquid samples to a few close friends, and they all gave the same response. “Wow!” After a few free raffles and a few sales, suddenly Cory woke up one morning to 500 friend requests and a Boosted fan page on Facebook. Since then it’s been non-stop e-juice mixing, trying to keep up with the sudden explosion in demand.
