Hey there,

I’m Dan! I’m a coffee guy and tennis player. I love the mental energy I get from caffeine, but coffee before tennis gave me jitters and occasionally upset my stomach. So I turned to bars.

Bars promising energy were packed with sugar and simple carbs that led to a crash and couldn’t replace the mental energy I loved from coffee. Unwilling to compromise and unable to find the right source of energy, my partner Leah and I had an idea ⚡

After countless hours with a food scientist, sports dietitian and over 150 recipes with a pastry chef, QUANTUM was born.

By combining plant-based whole food ingredients and caffeine from organic green coffee beans, our Energy Squares deliver smooth, long-lasting energy for your body and brain.

More than an energy bar, more than a cup of coffee, you will feel the difference.

Dan, Leah (& Joe!)
