In 1993 a small company, Emprise, located in Grand Prairie, TX, began selling a product called PLUS, and then very soon afterwards Manapol. To do this they used the Network Marketing sales model.
When they went to expand outside Texas they needed to change their name. After much prayer and discussion the name Mannatech was born in 1994. A few years later they moved their head office to Coppell, TX.
