For the past year, we’ve loved hearing your stories about how ReachNow helps you get to work, meet friends for dinner across town and to new destinations throughout the Pacific Northwest.
We’ve also been working with small businesses throughout Portland. Our shared fleet helps them move more easily and sustainably throughout the city. Whether it’s using ReachNow to avoid the cost of an additional company car or offering access to shared transportation to make getting to and from work easier on their employees, we’re proud to partner with companies that make Portland Portland.
ReachNow Drives Tender Loving Empire
Tender Loving Empire's co-founders, Brianne and Jared, started the company with an inspired dream: "show your community's art and music to the world." This simple, authentic mission has grounded their business and helped shape their iconic record label and retail prescence. Today, they are a recognized force in the Portland music scene and, with four popular retail locations across the city, Tender Loving Empire's community of makers and musicians continues to grow.
We are proud to be a part of this community and ReachNow is honored to have TLE as a ReachNow Drives Portland partner program. Today, we're sharing a bit about how ReachNow is helping TLE move around the city without the need for a fleet of their own cars.
ReachNow Drives Chinook Book
Today, we're releasing the second in our ReachNow Drives Portland series featuring Chinook Book. If you're anything like us, Chinook Book has been a staple in the homes of our team for years. If you're not familiar, Chinook book connects local businesses and sustainable brands with conscious consumers. The backbone of Chinook Book's business relies on the ability of their team to move around Portland to meet new vendors, create partnerships and deliver Chinook Books to the people and places you love.
Until recently, the Chinook Book team relied on the personal cars of their employees to get around town, taking up parking at their office and near their partners' locations. Thanks to access to ReachNow, Chinook Book employees have a new option to get around town that aligns with the company's sustainability mission. This has created new options and more flexibility for employees who can take a bike or a bus into work and have the freedom to run around town with ReachNow. As an added bonus, with ReachNow, metered parking in Portland is free, so employees no longer have to incur the cost of parking while meeting with vendors and partners across the city. At the end of a long day, most Chinook Book employees can take the same ReachNow car home and park in their neighborhood - saving time and money for Chinook Book and their team.
Thank you, Chinook Book for using ReachNow to make your business run more smoothly. Learn more about their story from the video below.
ReachNow Drives Water Avenue Coffee
Take a look back at our original video, featuring featuring Water Avenue Coffee. Founded in Portland 8 years ago, Water Avenue Coffee has been using our fleet, including the electric BMW i3 vehicles, to reduce the carbon footprint of their business while delivering product in and around Portland. Thank you Water Avenue Coffee for not only for making our mornings great, but also for your partnership. We look forward to many more years of traveling together.
