The PowerBar company was founded by Brian Maxwell, a Canadian athlete and entrepreneur and Mike McCollum, in his kitchen with Maxwell’s girlfriend, Jennifer Biddulph, a nutritionist who later became his wife. They used $55,000 in cash to launch the company in 1986 in Berkeley, California. This was the first “energy bar” for use by endurance athletes, such as ultra marathoners, jiu jitsu practitioners and cyclists, while competing. He eventually acquired a headquarters building in downtown Berkeley.
On February 3, 2014, Post Holdings announced it has reached an agreement to acquire PowerBar, Musashi and related worldwide assets from Nestlé.

First Endurance was started by two racing fanatics (a cyclist and a triathlete) with a healthy obsession for sports nutrition. The idea was simple. We wanted to give endurance athletes access to formulas that are developed for one specific reason-to maximize endurance performance. At First Endurance, our approach is different. Because of our core values and uncompromising standards, we develop the best products available. We are committed to using only the highest-quality ingredients. We employ the latest technological advancements and demand the finest packaging materials to protect the product from the elements (moisture, oxygen and UV degradation). Only when we are 100% satisfied that these standards are met, do we offer the products to you like Energy Gels.
