On September 1st, 1999; Quixtar began as a new company derived from the existing Amway Corporation. Quixtar began a website a few months prior to the launch to generate interest in the soon to be announced company. The website was simply Countdown9199.com.
The launch of Quixtar was plauged with server problems that first day of the launch, but survived and has later thrived through it’s first five years.
Quixtar’s fiscal year 2004-5 begins September 1, 2004. With this upcoming anniversary, the Countdown9199 site is back up with a new message. Makes ya wonder what is in store for the next five years.
