How it All Began...
The story of Honeycomb begins with a broken cell phone screen. Looking for an easy way to have the device repaired, Honeycomb’s founder, D’Arcy Young, found a mobile device repair business and they came to his home to fix the phone. Totally satisfied with the service, D’Arcy asked the provider if they offered the same service to buildings or corporate campuses? The answer was “yes” but not in any formal fashion. Thinking that this would be a great amenity for an office building to offer to tenants, he approached some building owners he knew to see if they would be interested in providing the service to their tenants. The answer was a resounding “yes” but when D’Arcy asked them how they would promote the service within the building, the answer was – send an email to the office managers. That is when the light turned on.
The realization being that office building owners and managers do not have a direct relationship with the users of their buildings. But how could this be? There are many answers to that question but when you boil it down the answer lies in the fact there has been no need to develop that relationship. That is also when D’Arcy realized that there was an opportunity. The opportunity being to change the the value a building provides to its tenants from one that is solely focused on the physical attributes to one that is focused on the experience, ease of use and leverages the buying power of a building. That idea became Honeycomb.
