Honeycomb Hospitality distributes safety boxes with essential items
Honeycomb Hospitality has pivoted its business to distribute safety boxes with essential items such as medical-grade masks and hand sanitizer to frontline healthcare workers.
Project Safety Box launches as Toronto recently implemented mandatory face masks in all indoor public spaces and public transit use. Each box will contain gloves, hand sanitizer, face masks, surface sanitizer, and immune boosters. They will be sold online and will offer fast, contactless delivery anywhere in Canada.
“When faced with the unsettling knowledge that essential items were increasingly hard to find, with demand for some products surging up to 500%, we began brainstorming how to solve this problem right away,” said Matty Tsoumaris, Partner at Honeycomb Hospitality & Founder of Project Safety Box. “We had a diverse group of entrepreneurs around the table who shared a history of collaborating together and had complementary skill sets including e-commerce, technology, logistics, and marketing. That evening, the concept for Project Safety Box was born.”
Honeycomb Hospitality are the owners and operators of many dining and nightlife establishments in downtown Toronto including Baro, The Loft On King, Dasha and Petty Cash who were forced to close all dine-in operations in March.
Recognizing that a full recovery for the hospitality industry was far from certain, they quickly pivoted and launched Project Safety Box in the hopes they could address lack of accessibility of essential items and protective gear.
Each safety box is customizable, including options for essential items for individuals and families starting at $39.00 CAD. Each box follows strict regulatory guidelines and sources only the best quality products to ensure the highest level of protection.
“As we prepare for reopening and restrictions are eased, we must remember that the fight to combat COVID-19 is far from over and individuals must ensure they have adequate supplies to return to their normal lives,” said Tom Yawney, Founder of Project Safety Box. “Supply shortages means visits to three or four different stores, which is counterproductive, inefficient and amplifies the possibility of the virus spreading. With Project Safety Box, easy online ordering, Canada-wide shipping and contactless delivery will make it easier to get the products that people need.”
With each purchase of a Project Safety Box, five medical-grade face masks will be donated to Sinai Health. Project Safety Box can be purchased at www.projectsafetybox.ca.
