Our location in the middle of the country and unparalleled expertise in logistics and supply chain makes Peoria a natural fit for companies interested in bringing together the offline and online world.
Christine and Leland Deehring didn't anticipate needing an entire building in Peoria's Pioneer Park that they leased for their Bump Boxes business, a subscription box service of packaged mother and baby products.
"We expected to lease out 70 percent of the space. Now we need it all," said Leland Deehring.
That space is needed for the more than hundreds of thousands of boxes the firm ships out of Peoria each quarter to mothers and mothers-to-be across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Today, Bump Boxes are increasing their revenues at an astonishing rate with the help of veteran investor and entrepreneur Paul Singh. Paul believes that Peoria has something unique to offer when it comes to what he views as the 3rd wave of entrepreneurship; bringing together the offline and online world.
“Peoria is the ONLY place in the country with the logistics expertise AND the technical expertise to build world-class high growth companies. You simply can't do this anywhere else in the United States. I know -- I've invested in thousands of startups over the past decade and I choose to commute weekly between my family in Virginia and Bump Boxes here in Peoria.” --
Paul Singh, Chief Revenue Officer, Bump Boxes and Managing Partner, Results Junkies
With a team of over 40, Bump Boxes plans to double their staff -- and their revenue -- by the end of 2019 and also looks to expand their physical presence in the region.
