5 Rabbit Founders, Andres Araya and Isaac Showaki are going at it! Araya, 5 Rabbit’s CEO, has filed suit against Showaki, the company’s COO, regarding Showaki’s allegations against him of embezzlement and an extramarital affair.
After hitting the ground running in 2011 and landing a deal to get their beer in local Chipotle locations, this could be a crippling blow for a brewery whose trajectory has been looking great. Neither party would agree to comment when Crain’s initially ran the story so hopefully they manage to settle this dispute without causing any more waves than necessary.
In this case, no news might be good news!
