Patrick Mahomes Launches Throne Sport Coffee As Lead Investor

Patrick Mahomes‘ book of business continues to grow. The two-time Super Bowl champion teamed up with former BodyArmor executive Michael Fedele to launch Throne Sport Coffee, a ready-to-drink iced coffee brand. Mahomes also serves as the lead investor. “I am so detailed with all the stuff that I put in my body. As an athlete you have to be,” the QB told Boardroom. “You want to know what can make you perform the best. So when Michael gave me this idea, I wanted to make sure that I could really be in those meetings and describe how I felt after I drank the samples, how I felt throughout the day, and how it helped get the best out of myself.” Throne Sport is available nationwide at at Casey’s, Hy-Vee, Amazon and SPORTCOFFEE.com.
