Shay Mitchell's travel Brand BÉIS just celebrated one year of business. The Mississauga born beauty launched the company in October 2018 after years of her own experience travelling and an inability to find both reasonably priced and high-quality luggage. And Shay Mitchell's travel brand BÉIS is doing incredibly well according to Forbes.
Forbes recently featured Mitchell in an interview highlighting her achievements with the company. According to Forbes, BÉIS has grown over 200% and has the potential to earn $20 million in revenue. Mitchell said she created BÉIS as a way to create affordable and accessible travel luggage, and honestly, the stuff is super cute.
In her YouTube video celebrating BÉIS's one year anniversary, Mitchell talked about how she brought the ideas for her luggage line to life and what inspired her to start it.
"This brand has been on my mind for as long as I can remember," Mitchell said in the video. "I always dreamt of having my own luggage line. Walking through the airport with my own brand."
In her video, Mitchell mentioned that her sketches and ideas started from "cocktail napkin doodles" while she was on airplanes and in airports. What started out as an idea for luggage for herself turned into creating pieces that her customers would adore. "I want you to enjoy, I want to make your life easier from start to finish," Mitchell said in her video.
So on top of having her own extremely successful business, Mitchell also has a YouTube channel where she posts fun and relevant videos to her 4.12 million subscribers. She recently started a mini-series called "Almost Ready" where she shares the reality of pregnancy in a funny but also informative way. She started it three months ago and is due any day now.
In December 2018, Mitchell shared a video documenting the two-year journey it took to get her company launched. In the video, she said it took months of planning, designing, and even getting her own hands dirty to perfect the pieces she sells.
Mitchell already dropped a super successful luggage line and soon she's going to drop a baby too!
