This week, we officially launched a new partnership with J.P. Licks, a well-known Boston-area chain of stores for homemade ice cream, frozen yogurt, and fresh-roasted coffee. We had a great time kicking it off with an event on Thursday at J.P. Licks Jamaica Plain. I, along with Josh Kraft, CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB), and J.P. Licks CEO Vince Petryk, spoke to a group of young people from the Hennigan Club about our journeys as entrepreneurs. We hope to have inspired these amazing young kids to set their goals high and believe that with hard work, they can accomplish anything.
Our partnership with J.P. Licks is focused on helping Boston-area communities and families in multiple ways. First, we are offering incentives for interested drivers to sign up to be a part of our “village.” It takes a village to raise children, and offering a safer, insured alternative for transportation can help busy families better manage schedules and activities. That’s why we are offering every new driver a $1000 bonus after 200 rides.
In addition, we are raising money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston. We support organizations like theirs that make life a little easier for families while providing enriching programs for our community’s youth. You can help! For every rider who downloads the Zemcar app with the promotional code JPLICKS and takes a Zemcar ride, we will donate $1.00 to the Club. For every new driver who completes 10 rides, Zemcar donates $100.00 to BGCB!
And finally, we all know that life is better with ice cream, so every new rider who downloads and signs up with the promotional code receives a JP Licks coupon for a free cone or coffee.
At Zemcar, we believe in the power of community and so this partnership simply made sense. BGCB is all about providing safe and affordable care for kids, and peace of mind for families – very similar to our own mission. Also, J.P. Licks just has a knack for bringing families and groups together over a delicious helping of ice-cream, or the best cup of coffee, and is one of our team’s favorite spots to meet and interview new drivers.
In fact, now, as part of the partnership, we are also holding “office hours” at any of the JP Licks 13 Locations. Come meet the team during Office Hours at JP Licks in Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill, Assembly Square & more! Check http://www.zemcar.com and Facebook for more details about our Office Hours.
