Have you tried of Boxed yet? It is a wholesale experience for those without the time, means or patience for a brick-and-mortar warehouse club trip. Founded in 2013, Boxed has taken the best elements of the wholesale shopping experience and folded it into one innovative, cutting edge mobile app that allows consumers direct-to-their-door access to all of their favorite warehouse club products, without membership fees. I recently went to Boxed's NYC office to learn more about the service from Boxed CEO Chieh Huang.
3 Fast Facts about Boxed:
1. The company was started in response to common problems with wholesale clubs. Boxed does all the heavy lifting, delivering a rich array of wholesale items directly to doorsteps across the continental United States in two days or less. Most Boxed shoppers buy 10 items or more.
2. Currently, there are only 1,000 items to shop from. The brand’s innovative discovery-based design recreates the fun of the treasure hunt experience with a curated selection of everyday essentials that consumers love including household staples, health and beauty supplies, office pantry items, groceries and a wide variety of organic and green products. Making it easy for customers to stock up on values sizes. Also allowing for delight & surprise with deals and free items too!
3. Boxed CEO Chieh Huang believes in the value of company employees. In 2015, Huang announced he would be personally paying for the college tuition for all of the children of his employees.

A benefit that applies to all full-time employees from their fulfillment centers in New Jersey, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Dallas, as well as their corporate and support offices in New York City and San Mateo.
