Mo & Max met in 2007 while bartending in Ann Arbor, Michigan. With virtually nothing in common their bromance needed a spark. One late September evening they found that spark. Their shared passion for 80s cinema would lead to countless hours of fanboying, nerding out, and friendship. But it would take a global pandemic to push things to the next level.
With Max on Covid hiatus from bartending and Mo worried about the future of pork bellies and frozen orange juice, there was just enough shared anxiety to push them to try something new. So what would they do? Max knew he didn’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. So they put their heads together and Buzzn The Tower was born!
