Papa BarnardVita-Mix corporation was started in 1921 when founder, W.G. Barnard started traveling around the country to sell modern kitchen appliances and products. It was in 1937 when “Papa” Barnard introduced a new product called the blender. This modern product created a tremendous value because it allowed users to easily and quickly prepare healthy foods. He soon named the product the “Vita-Mix”, because the word vita means life.

After 10 years of successfully selling the Vitamix, a new form of marketing was now available to Papa Barnard. Live demonstrations via television was the latest medium to show others the power of a Vitamix. In 1949, Papa Barnard went down in history by creating the first infomercial. In 1955, the name of the company was officially changed to the Vita-Mix Corporation.

In 1969, the Vitamix 3600 was introduced to the public. This was the first blender that would blend ice, make warm soups, and grind grain. A truly innovative product that allowed users to create healthy and tasty food.
