If you build it they will come.

We began by launching a retail store of our own to sell what we loved, food. Back then, there was no easy way to open a brick and mortar store. The real estate landscape was complex and opening a store had high risks. Ever since, we have been on a mission to help brands to grow their business through a real-world presence. We started by democratizing access to retail space. In 2016, we built a marketplace for short-term space and powered the launch of over 5,000 stores across North America. We’ve learned that while you need the right kind of space, you also need more than a great location to succeed.

“We are part of a modern growth strategy, providing tech-enabled flexible retail stores for brands to launch, measure, and grow their retail presence.”
READY TO TURN THE KEY? WE KNOW JUST THE PLACE.
Opening the door to real-world retail

Building a homepage is one thing, building a storefront is another. We combine real estate and retail data to provide access to up-and-coming and sought after neighborhoods. We know where your next store should be, what times you should be open, and even how to create data-informed merchandising plans. Today, we’re making it possible for brands hit the ground running with retail. We’ve assembled a team of local retail experts; neighborhood know-it-alls to outfit your space with the smartest retail technology and build a full-service, set-up to clean-up operation.
