I am frequently asked why I decided to get into the subscription box business and furthermore, why Grandbox? The answer is heartfelt and a bit colorful. You see years ago I volunteered to help with BINGO at a local nursing home. I loved my time helping the residents play. Thursday nights were BINGO night. This quickly became my favorite night of the week and one I protected from all other distractions.
I also watched the residents get very excited over prizes like strings of beads, candy bars and Little Debbie cakes. They loved these prizes… I also saw how lonely most of these residents were. (I could write an entire book on this topic, but I want to keep this positive.) I thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if they got care packages or something in the mail with goodies to remind them how special they are?” That was 4 years ago…fast-forward to last March. A good friend of mine approached me and asked me when I was finally going to put together the Care packages for seniors? It was time. I found Grand Box online and approached the owners about a possible acquisition. It turned out the timing was good for all of us and 2 months later I was the proud owner of GrandBox.
I am dedicated to continuing to provide a valuable and personal box to each recipient at an affordable price. I want each box to have a bit of adventure, color and fun in it. This compliments the personal pictures and note enclosed in the box.
