TetherBox Announces Monthly College Care Package Service
New subscription box service caters to busy parents and loved ones wanting to send care packages to their college students away at school.
FLEMINGTON, N.J. - Aug. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- TetherBox (tetherbox.com) announced today its national rollout to colleges and universities across the United States.
"Parents and loved ones collectively spend hundreds of Millions of dollars annually on college care packages while subscription boxes (think Birchbox) represent a Billion dollar industry," says Lynn Holdsworth, co-creator of TetherBox. "Offering a convenient and needed service while combining these two markets provided an excellent opportunity to tap into."
TetherBox college care packages are filled with five to seven specially curated snacks, unique personal care products, useful gadgets and fun surprises hand-picked by the company's network of student ambassadors from colleges around the U.S. "Our mission is two-fold," says Holdsworth. "First, find unique content for each monthly box that college students will love and second, provide a fun, easy and affordable service that allows loved ones to send the perfect gift, a 'Hug from Home', to their student every month."
"Everyone is incredibly busy these days, but we also miss our kids dearly when they are away at school," stated Holdsworth. "Most of us don't have time to bake cookies and wait in line at the Post Office. That's where TetherBox comes in. Our service gives parents the opportunity to connect with their student in a special way every month and it reminds their child of how much they are loved and missed."
TetherBox held its "soft launch" in April of 2016 with its introductory Finals Box. Holdsworth recounts that, "Our soft launch was a huge success. The reception we received from customers and from vendors wanting to be included in our boxes well exceeded our projections. We quickly built scalability into our process, launched our new website and video, amped up our marketing and are looking forward to the new school year with great excitement and anticipation."
TetherBox offers Month to Month, Semester, and School Year subscription plans.
TetherBox (www.tetherbox.com) is the "Modern Twist on the Classic College Care Package". Each month, TetherBox sends care packages filled with meticulously selected all natural snacks, personal care items, fun gadgets and surprises gifted by loved ones to their college students around the country. TetherBox is the easy, fun and affordable way to "Send a Hug from Home".
